Colorado to take $15 billion hit under Senate health care bill

But according to a new poll released by the Kaiser Family Foundation on Friday, only 38 percent of Americans are aware of the significant cuts to Medicaid that would be delivered by the House-passed bill (the poll was conducted before the details of the Senate bill were made public).

"No amount of 11th hour reality-denying or buck-passing by Democrats is going to change the fact that more Americans are going to get hurt unless we do something", he said. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), and Mike Lee (R-Utah).

In an interview with Fox News Channel, Trump was asked about the four conservatives opposing the bill.

Under special rules McConnell is using that will block Democrats from using a filibuster to kill the bill, the legislation can not include provisions that make policy changes that don't primarily affect the budget.

Senate GOP bill: There is no penalty for having a break in coverage and no waiting period for consumers to use their insurance.

The Senate's bill allocates $2 billion in 2018 for treatment and services related to the epidemic of people addicted to prescription pain pills and heroin. The budget office analysis of the Senate measure is expected early next week. The Senate bill also calls for a tighter cap on federal spending in Medicaid overall than the House bill did. Those additional funds would continue through 2020, then gradually fall and disappear entirely in 2024. The subsidies help reduce deductibles and copayments for people with modest incomes. Discrimination based on pre-existing conditions could become the norm again.

Birth control must now be covered under most insurance plans (religious organizations can get waivers) as a required preventive health service under Obamacare.

ABORTION Obama law: Private health insurance plans sold to people who receive federal subsidies can cover abortion.

I urge readers to urge our senators to oppose any legislation that will deprive the citizens of meaningful health care coverage.

"We anticipate it will be hundreds of thousands of Oregonians that will be stripped of health care under this proposal in order to get a tax break for wealthy Americans", said Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat. Trump has been threatening to discontinue those payments, and some insurance companies have cited uncertainty as a reason they are abandoning some markets and boosting premiums.

Nevada Republican Sen. Dean Heller says he opposes the GOP bill scuttling much of the Obama health care law, complicating the effort by party leaders to guide the measure through the Senate.
