Progressive Groups Rip Republican Plan To Replace Obamacare

Share

The report determined the Senate Republican health care bill would leave 22 million fewer Americans with health insurance by 2026 than under the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama's signature health care law.

Progressive groups predicted IL will see hundreds of thousands people lose health insurance coverage if Congress approves the Senate Republican plan to replace Obamacare.

But the Senate has some money to work with, given that its bill was judged to save $321 billion over a decade, which is $202 billion more than what the House version saves.

Five Republican senators have said they will not support the bill without change, but the administration said Trump has contacted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and has been on the phone with others in his party in a bid to drum up support.

The budget office says that the new legislation would lower average premiums enough to attract healthy people to stabilize the market, which was one of the reasons many insurers began to exit the Obamacare exchanges. "It hands enormous tax cuts to the rich and to the drug and insurance industries, paid for by cutting health care for everybody else".

With only a four-seat majority over the Democrats and independents in the upper house, the Republicans can only afford to lose a handful of votes if they want to pass the legislation.

The nonpartisan budget and tax analysis agency's estimates forecast the effects of the Better Care Reconciliation Act, the healthcare bill crafted by Senate Republicans and released last week.

The CBO report wasn't all bad news for McConnell.

The CBO report reinforced a recent pattern in budget office scores for Republican-backed health care plans aimed at repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. "There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current health care system, but it does not appear this draft as written will accomplish the most important promise that we made to Americans: to repeal Obamacare and lower their health care costs".

Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) last week also announced he would not support the bill in its current form. The CBO estimated then that the House bill would lead 23 million more uninsured by 2026. Those lawmakers, however, might insist on updated CBO scoring before voting for the motion to proceed.

The estimate, released less than a week after Republicans in the upper chamber unveiled their health care legislation and just days ahead of a potential vote, could complicate the already hard task of getting enough GOP support to pass the measure.
