Congressman Comer on Voting for American Health Care Act

The passage through the House of Representatives brings President Donald Trump one step closer to his campaign promise to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act.

President Trump (center) celebrates with Republicans in the Rose Garden after the House approved the American Healthcare Act on Thursday. Lindsey Graham would not tip his hand on how he plans to vote: "Only after a careful review of the legislation, as well as discussions with the interested stakeholders across SC, will I know the answer to that question".

Republican Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), said Sunday that the Senate will wait for a new score from the Congressional Budget Office before proceeding with a vote. But the Republicans did write three major changes for Obamacare with Thursday's bill.

"They're going to have to devolve more power to the states".

According to a number of news articles and social media posts, pregnancy, sexual assault and domestic violence could be considered "pre-existing conditions" that make it hard to keep insurance coverage under the Republican health care bill. That's on top of about $100 billion over a decade for states to help people afford coverage and stabilize insurance markets. She also wouldn't be surprised if senators extend the expansion of Medicaid or devote more dollars to the expansion while it lasts. Because, you know, women need and use health care, too.

"Progressives are going to hang this around the necks of every one of those Republicans", said Angel Padilla, co-founder of the liberal group Indivisible.

Asked about efforts to get the bill through the House, Sanders recounted that the President had been "incredibly engaged", calling or meeting with approximately 15-20 members of the House directly. They are all very mature. "If they decide they want to take this as a grant instead of the entitlement structure of existing Obamacare, then they can have flexibility in revising the regulations in their own states", said Turner. Coloradans deserve a health care system that provides access to affordable health insurance and health care services. Turner says that's not true.

Under the AHCA, an insurance company would not be able to deny insurance coverage to someone due to their pre-existing condition. Current law stays in place [if states] decide not to take the grant and make their own changes.

And it was supposed to be more fine print, as the New York Times pointed out on Saturday, that groups like the American Lung Association and the American Cancer Society, after their people actually read this bill, came to the conclusion that it would absolutely weaken protections for people with what the Times described as "ongoing medical conditions". Second, they want you to believe that even as drug prices, costs of tests, etc. continue to rise, removing about $1 trillion from health care will lower prices and provide better care.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of ME, however, says she's not so certain the House plan would protect people from higher costs. As a result, they don't buy anything. Others will lose out on financial support or health care coverage. Turner says that statistic is horribly misleading. They'll find that they'll pay substantially higher premiums compared with prior years, and many of their plans are no longer available.
