Here's how Trumpcare will hurt you if you have a pre-existing condition

Alas, a motto does not provide a guideline for a new health care replacement plan.

"The working group that counts is all 52 of us, and we're having extensive meetings" daily, McConnell said last week.

Republican leaders have made it clear that the Senate legislation that ultimately emerges will look very different from the bill that narrowly cleared the House.

You might be thinking: "Who cares?" However, after 2020, anyone who signs up would no longer benefit from the federal funds provided by the Affordable Care Act, reducing the 73 million low-income and disabled people in the United States who now benefit from Medicaid by 14 million, according to estimates from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

Consumers would be able to deduct the cost of their health insurance premiums from their taxes. The bill also calls for funding the program through finite state grants instead.

In the Senate, 30 Democrats are backing the measure, but it has no Republican sponsor. The GOP health care strategy is now clear: It's a $1 trillion "revenue-neutral" tax cut for the rich, "paid for" by a $1 trillion cut to "health care" for millions of Americans. "And right now, in part, it's a fight to just try to get in the door".

"It doesn't work all at all", Pipes said.

McCain, who gets his health care through the VA, has had surgery for melanoma. Sen.

Grow up, stop being selfish and have some courage to offer us the peace of decent health care.

Now, most people aren't on Obamacare plans.

"The state estimates that this plan would cost the state almost $7 billion a year in Medicaid funding, and more than two and a half million New Yorkers could be deprived of the coverage they need", Brindisi continued. "Let me phrase this carefully. I mean you get gorgeous views and the wonderful outdoors, but you're miles and miles from the nearest hospital", said Haislmaier. In other words, there is mutual disinterest in bipartisanship when it comes to the fundamentals of Obamacare.

A letter to every senator from AARP urged them to oppose the House's American Health Care Reform Act, and to have the Senate "start from scratch" in writing new health-care legislation. Senators could modify the House bill to change how the caps are computed, but they are far from any final decisions.

The bill, which passed the House earlier this month, allows states to waive community rating in the individual insurance market.
