As Health Bill Moves to Senate, Gillibrand Asks Citizens to Voice Opposition

"Make no mistake about this", said President Donald Trump. "True to our promise, AARP is now letting its 38 million members know how their elected representative voted on this health bill".
"They're going to have to come up with a bill that meets this 50-vote threshold by pleasing camps that are arguably even more polarized than Republicans in the House of Representative", Hayes said.
Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-3rd Dist.), whose proposal on the state waivers led to approval of the Republican measure, said the Medicaid cuts are created to force states to try hold down health care costs.
It is a conservative dream years in the making: ditching Barack Obama's health care law, which Republicans blame for sending insurance premiums soaring while reducing options for millions.
In an ironic twist, several Republican Congressman have admitted they did not read the bill, instead relying on staff or the media to understand its potential effects. "The Senate is starting from scratch. And I'm convinced that we're going to take the time to do it right".
Opponents of the new bill said this pool, now sitting at $138 billion, won't be enough to protect people with pre-existing conditions in states that obtain waivers.
Senators are already talking about preventing some of the House bill's Medicaid cuts.
"There are no cuts to the Medicaid program", Price insisted Sunday, adding that resources are being doled out to allow states greater flexibility.
Some senators have already voiced displeasure with the health care bill that cleared the House last week. Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare, states are not allowed to deny people coverage for having pre-existing medical conditions. The television and online blitz is expected to seize on the more unpopular provisions in the GOP plan, which was opposed by the AARP, the American Medical Association, which represents doctors, and the American Hospital Association.
Sen. Rand Paul, who has called the House health bill's tax credits subsidies by another name, is among the key players in the Senate on health reform. "Now that the bill is law, the American people are finding out that what's in it is completely contrary to what they were promised".
Voters protest at the office of Kansas Republican Kevin Yoder, who voted Thursday to take away Americans' healthcare. Trump has said "Obamacare" is failing as insurers pull out of markets, forcing premiums and deductibles to rise. Ball was on CNN's Inside Politics Friday, where the topic of the day was whether the GOP put their House majority at risk by passing the American Health Care Act.
Democrats say it would make insurance unaffordable for those who need it most and leave millions more uninsured. "The Senate will complete the job". Collins and Ryan appeared on ABC's "This Week" and Mulvaney appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation".
