In fact, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) has often retold an anecdote about the power of women in this exact debate: "During the health care debate, [Sen.] Debbie Stabenow's sitting at a table during a somewhat boring negotiation on the Finance Committee".

The Congressional Budget Office estimated earlier this month that the bill would reduce the deficit by $337 billion through 2026 but leave about 24 million more people uninsured than would be under the current law.

He said the Republican health care bill does not get rid of every aspect of the ACA and keeps parts that are beneficial.

Obama also took the opportunity to directly call on his successor and his party to work in a bipartisan way to improve the American health care system. The ACA has provided South Carolinians access to affordable health care, protections and essential health benefits like preventive care. Republicans and Republican leaners with no more than a high school diploma are almost twice as likely as those with a college degree to say ensuring health care coverage is a government responsibility (43% vs. 22%).

Faso also said the state could afford to cover Medicaid costs under his amendment if the Cuomo administration would cut wasteful spending.

Cabinet Office and major brands pull ads from YouTube
The report cites content showing up in YouTube alongside videos of white nationalists and terrorists. He also said that Google invests a huge amount of money every year to stop bad advertising.

USA Women's National Hockey Team Boycotting Championships
The statement has been retweeted with resounding support from other athletes, including Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan of the U.S. Just as the men are paid a living wage and are supported even if they don't win every championship, so should the women.

The Affordable Care Act isn't flawless, but the Republican proposal will lead to less and worse coverage for higher costs.

House Republicans are slated to vote on the GOP plan on Thursday.

Importantly, the AHCA maintains a firewall between the new tax credits and the existing employer sponsored insurance, which over 177 million individuals rely for highly valued coverage.

"America is stronger because of the Affordable Care Act", the former president said. California's 38 House Democrats have lined up pretty firmly against the bill, as have most of the chamber's Democrats, so Republicans are on their own to pass the bill.

If this so-called Obamacare repeal was simply that, it would lead to a situation where millions of folks who are now insured are unable to pay for their health insurance. "Prior to the passage of the ACA, many people living with pre-existing conditions like HIV or cancer, would have been denied health insurance coverage until they became extremely sick or disabled".
