John Kasich Says GOP Health Care Bill Is 'Inadequate'

John Kasich Says GOP Health Care Bill Is 'Inadequate'

Senator Thune told KSFY News in March that Senate Republicans plan to use a budgetary maneuver called "reconciliation" to avoid a filibuster and pass the bill with a simple majority.

The House approved the American Health Care Act late last week, sending it to an uncertain future in the Senate. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the Senate minority leader, speaking at an unrelated news conference, also criticized the new health care bill, saying he was concerned the measure would make it more hard for Americans with pre-existing health conditions to find affordable coverage.

In the Senate, not a single woman is part of the working group created to overhaul health care.

Lawmakers on Sunday were gearing up as the fight over the nation's health care system heads to the U.S. Senate. They pass a bill through the House. Many would lose out on financial support or health care coverage.

"There are no cuts to the Medicaid program", Price said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne said emergency teams are on alert, and government officials were keeping a close eye on the situation province-wide.

"Senate Republicans could pass a less bad, but still awful bill and claim that, after all, if they were doing a little better than the House, that everyone should celebrate - even though it meant shrinking coverage and creating tax breaks for billionaires", she said in an interview. For instance, the legislation eliminates the taxes that Obamacare levied on the wealthy to help pay for the law.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that the Republican bill would result in 24 million fewer people having health insurance by 2026, compared to Obama's 2010 statute.

"It is a pretty big mistake", said Representative Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 Democrat, about the Republican bill. "I think we will do so and that we will come up with a whole new fresh approach that solves the legitimate flaws that do exist with the ACA, where we have seen, in some markets, insurers fleeing so people won't be able to buy subsidized insurance".

"We should have had a CBO estimate", said Sen. "Make no mistake about this", said President Donald Trump.

As many can imagine, this vote is going over well with many who have pre-existing conditions and are at risk of losing their health insurance. Under #IAmAPreexistingCondition, started by Huffington Post Women, many have shared their preexisting conditions, coming together to show that the new bill could impact all kinds of people for all different reasons. But sharing the podium with President Trump was Seema Verma, Administrator of Medicare and Medicaid Services, who played a key role in drafting the legislation.
