As Senate Nears Health Care Vote, Portman Remains Opposed To Medicaid Cuts

Rand Paul and House Freedom Caucus members have been calling for all along - a repeal of Obamacare first, followed by a replacement at a later point. His problem with the bill is its impact on Medicaid Expansion, which would cost 200,000 Nevadans their health coverage.

Mr. Cruz argues it is better to backstop those costs with direct taxpayer subsidies and stabilization funds than forcing healthy consumer to pay more. And we pay our state and local government officials $938,305 per year.

Health care is also an issue that affects every American.

Becoming? How about the fact that, for all practical purposes, it's been that way for over 30 years? "Government should stay out of health care, period", a man in his 30s who could not be reached for a follow-up interview wrote in a response. And those who complained about Obamacare's passage because it "unlawfully" (at least until SCOTUS deemed it lawful) required people to purchase insurance likely didn't consider that EMTALA quite "lawfully" required emergency departments to perform such treatment with no reimbursement provisions built in whatsoever.

In addition to rising concern about health care costs, other financial concerns facing American families have declined. Where once the majority was against Obamacare, now the majority support it, budget deficit be damned.

Moderates who say the Cruz plan would increase costs for those who need robust coverage got cover Wednesday from the top insurers' lobby, America's Health Insurance Plans, which said segmenting the market is a bad idea. He says there are good things in the bill, but its not sustainable.

Here's the deal. From all accounts, the fatal flaw seems to be the absence of a measure to keep people on insurance. She said that, if she goes back, she won't be able to afford insurance on her own without the current Obamacare protections.

More than half of Nevadans are insured through employer-provided insurance.

Senate Republicans are expected to release a revised version of their health care bill, which they dubbed the Better Care Reconciliation Act, to the public later this week.

In other words, the Obamacare "tax" didn't go almost far enough.

"House Republicans had a responsibility to listen to and look out for their constituents, and they failed", Jeb Fain, senior communications adviser for House Majority PAC, said in a statement. "I don't think you can".

Before we go down the long hard road of a single-payer system, isn't it at least worth a shot to make the Republican bill a workable solution?

"I have a wife and a son, and if your child gets sick, you'll do anything you can to help, but your options are a little more limited in the United States", said the Kansas native by phone. And those who provably cannot can shift to Medicaid.

Rion, who is a permanent resident in Japan, said health care is a major factor in deciding where he will live in the future.

"The potential of the ACA repeal will have a devastating effect on hospitals all across the country and, most notably, small and rural hospitals", Winthrop said.
