Millions of Americans - including some Athens County residents - could lose health coverage after the U.S. House of Representatives passed a Republican-sponsored health care bill, the American Health Care Act, on Thursday. "It would cut Medicaid by $840 billion, and substantially increase premiums on older Americans", said Senator Bernie Sanders.
Either way, Turner says certain principles must be part of the Senate bill as well. Although it is a major victory for President Donald Trump, the bill is far from becoming law. Republicans can pass the bill with a slim 52-48 majority by only relying on its party, but doing so could prohibit certain things from being included in the bill.

Republicans are asking Americans to believe an impossibility. "ObamaCare premiums and deductibles are way up-it was a lie and it is dead!" States have established waiting lists to get into their risk pools or restricted admission to the pools, since they ultimately have to balance their budget and they have no way to predict how high costs will climb.

Democratic fundraising has surged to challenge vulnerable Republicans who backed the plan. She did not criticize the working group's all-male make-up but said she wanted to see a broader effort to replace Obama's 2010 healthcare law.
"This is a rescue mission to make sure that we can achieve the goals we all want", the Wisconsin Republican said during an interview on ABC's "This Week." This time, Republicans were in such a rush to pass the bill - breaking their own pledge to release all legislation at least two days before any votes - that we don't understand the full impacts. It would allow states to seek waivers allowing them to deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.
This bill, which President Trump supports, will make health insurance more affordable across the board, allow states to better manage their unsustainable Medicaid programs, and repeal job-killing taxes and regulations, while still protecting people with pre-existing conditions. The same goes for a person who was injured or sickened with a chronic illness. "And I am the most centrist".
Democrats have claimed that the new bill will doom Republicans in the next election cycle, but White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus dismissed any and all naysayers.
