Trump committed to providing health care to all: health secy

President Trump and congressional leaders have said the American Health Care Act will lower health costs and cut the national deficit. "Certainly, the costs are going to go up and the credits are going to go down". And it would limit federal support for the entire program, which covers more than 70 million people. They are people of every age in every Nebraska community. And after he won, he said he wanted coverage for everyone.

Instead, the four governors urged the two leaders to consider their alternative health care plan that would allow each state "to pursue Medicaid transformation in its own way". Buyers younger than 30 would get a $2,000 tax credit, with increases per decade of age.

Under a block grant, states would receive a fixed amount of federal funding each year, regardless of how many participants are in the program. Many people, particularly those who did not qualify for subsidies, complained that coverage was unaffordable.

They are older people nearing retirement who will see their premiums skyrocket.

The analysis of the plan's impact also needs to take into account such things as reducing regulatory constraints and excessive litigation that contributes to higher health care costs, Price told anchor Jake Tapper. A 40-year-old would pay 8% to 10% less.

In general, if you are younger, healthier, or wealthier-because all of the payment side, if you will-how the ACA was financed, all of those are going to go away and most of those were relatively small taxes on wealthier people.

Really? The uninsured have no coverage at any ER. Its paltry tax credits would leave many Iowans paying more for their health insurance, and its repeal of the Medicaid expansion would leave many other Iowans with no insurance at all.

I think that Republicans do believe in personal freedom in some instances and that they are ideologically opposed to the Affordable Care Act's individual insurance mandate.


A 27-year-old in Los Angeles, also with an annual income of $40,000, now gets $180 in tax credits for health insurance.

Currently, 97 percent of NY children have health insurance, the highest level in state history, Anderson said. But it also will lead to millions more people who have no health insurance.

The poor will be able to afford coverage: Trump has repeatedly said that the government should help pay for coverage for the poor, dismissing the fact that this is not a popular view among Republicans. "It's a no-win situation for these older folks".

Prior to Obamacare I had the unfortunate need to take a loved one to the emergency room of various local hospitals.

It seems that proponents of the AHCA are not listening to the message that citizens in MI and nationally are giving policy makers: fix the ACA so that it can provide better quality, more accessible and lower-cost health coverage. The AHCA would discontinue enrollments under the Medicaid expansion by 2020.

Reaction to the CBO report.

To Cindy Powell, a board member for Advocates of the Aging of Frederick County, the proposed cuts directly affect vulnerable residents - senior citizens who depend on Medicaid for long-term care.
