NY [U.S.], June 23 ANI: Former President Barack Obama on Thursday severely criticized the proposed GOP Senate health-care bill that dismantles the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare by issuing a warning saying, "this bill will do you harm".
All four senators agree that they can not support the bill in its current form. The program would also no longer be an open-ended entitlement.
But the Senate bill would make subsidies less generous than under current law. Its president, Dr. Fernando Stein, says the plan was crafted without input from pediatricians and "would tear down" the progress the nation has made by achieving insurance coverage for 95 percent of children.
The bill would end Obama's tax penalties on people who don't buy insurance - effectively ending the so-called individual mandate - and on larger companies that don't offer coverage to their workers. He could not immediately point to anything in it that would keep him from voting for it, although he said he expected changes to the bill in the Senate.
Gianforte's statement said: "I look forward to studying this bill and receiving input from Montanans on its impact". "The program has been a great success and a model for other states to follow". Oregon was an early adopter of the Affordable Care Act provisions, and tried to be on the edge with Cover Oregon.
During today's morning, the Republican senators heard the presentation of the proposal in the Capitol, in a measure of McConnell to manage to convince the dubious ones of their vote, because he can only afford to lose two votes so that the measure is approved.
US Stocks Fall At Open
Energy stocks bore the brunt for a second straight day, and those in the S&P 500 fell 0.9 percent, a day after losing 1.2 percent. NEW YORK (AP ) - U.S. stock indexes edged higher in morning trading Thursday after the price of oil stabilized, at least for now.
In addition to reducing the number of uninsured, "there has also been a huge drop in the number of people showing up at hospitals without insurance, which is a positive trend that has saved millions of dollars in Michigan's health-care system, "Snyder has said in a statement. So it remains my fervent hope that we step back and try to deliver on what the American people need", Obama said". "Because Obamacare is a direct attack on the middle class, and American families deserve better than its failing status quo".
"We live in the wealthiest country on earth".
Like the U.S. House's health-care proposal, the Senate plan proposes cutting federal spending on Medicaid.
Among other senators, Sen. If all goes according to plan, she said, Republican leaders will bring the bill to President Donald Trump in July. "Remember, ObamaCare is dead", Trump tweeted late Thursday.
Obama was more than skeptical. "Simply put, if there's a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family-this bill will do you harm".
Trump urged the House of Representatives to pass a similar bill in May, only to criticise it in private as "mean" once it passed.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said under the House bill, 23 million fewer people would have coverage by 2026.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said Wednesday that Scalise "is on the road to recovery" but it will take some time. He was having marital problems, Slater said, and was running out of money around the time of the attack.
Senate Republicans have released their version of a new healthcare bill and Bourne Congressman William Keating is expressing concern over how the proposed legislation was developed.
The Senate legislation drew support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which said it would "stabilize crumbling insurance markets" and curb premium increases.
Material from the Associated Press was used in this report. Those additional funds would continue through 2020, then gradually fall and disappear entirely in 2024. One of the most eyebrow-raising, which some called the "Buffalo Bribe" (a reference to the hometown of one of the provision's authors, Representative Chris Collins), involved language forcing New York State to pick up Medicaid costs now borne by counties. The program now gives states all the money needed to cover eligible recipients and procedures.
