Obama on Senate bill: It's 'not a health care bill'

The 142-page draft, capping seven years of GOP promises to repeal Barack Obama's signature health care legislation, was released Thursday. It was the building block for the Senate legislation unveiled Thursday. Elaine Rodriguez spoke for many parents saying her disabled daughter, Leandra, depends on Medicaid for medicine and oxygen. The group's statement suggested Cassidy "must demand that the Senate delay a vote" until more analysis is done to understand the proposal's impact. Further complicating the issue for him is Nevada's Republican Governor, Brian Sandoval, an outspoken supporter of the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion. Biotech stocks are already fueling the healthcare sector as recent reports suggest that efforts by Washington to rein in drug prices would not be as harsh on the industry as feared.

"Of Louisiana's two senators, Sen".

It differs with the House version in a few places, such as providing income-based tax credits to give some financial support to people with lower incomes. It also would provide more generous tax subsidies than the House bill to help low-income people buy private insurance.

"We're concerned that it would lead to dramatic cuts in services or dramatic cuts in the number of beneficiaries who would rely on Medicaid", said Kristine Grow, a spokeswoman for AHIP.

76ers get No. 1 pick from Celtics
Overall, this looks like it will shape out to be a good move for the Sixers if Fultz fills out the way that he is expected to. Hence, the pick protections were negotiated in: the Celtics would only get the pick if it fell between the 2-5 slots.


Northam Beats Perriello in Virginia Democratic Gubernatorial Primary
In his victory speech, Gillespie tried to play peacemaker and asked Stewart supporters to get behind him for the general election. Interestingly, though, neither Northam nor Perriello is as true-blue Democrat as the campaign might have led voters to believe.


Whole Foods customers react to $13.7 billion Amazon merger
Hetu said Amazon could make pertinent offers to attract shoppers of one but not the other, or get shoppers of both to buy more. So news that Amazon has bought U.S. supermarket chain Whole Foods for $13.4bn is interesting but perhaps not surprising.


After the unveiling, four of the majority party's Senators made their dissent public. I think they saw that when the Democrats tried to write a big health care bill just with Democrats it didn't end up being a good policy. "We can get this done - we can get to 'yes'".

"If our Republican colleagues were proud of this bill, there'd be a brass band down the middle of Fifth Avenue and every street in America", said Schumer, the Senate's minority leader.

"If you want to use the president's formulation 'mean, ' then this bill is a little bit meaner than the House bill", said Hanel. First, what is meaner: Letting states waive the preexisting condition protection, or allowing insurance markets to fail so that millions of people have no access to insurance? The enhanced federal financing that pays for the expansion would disappear entirely in 2024. By making that change, the near-elderly working poor would be able to afford coverage, and the poverty trap would be eliminated.
