GOP health care plan hurts small business owners

GOP health care plan hurts small business owners

The BCRA would require Americans to pay substantially more for worse coverage. Robbing health care from millions of Americans to give yet another tax cut to the rich and powerful is just plain cruel.

Alabama now has 480,000 children on Medicaid, representing more than 40 percent of the state's kids, Ernest says. This plan was a huge financial safety net, and allowed me to keep my business open despite my cancer diagnosis a year ago. That's about 20 percent of the state's population, Dayton said.

According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, the chaotic, incoherent and secretive process "could lead insurers to withdraw from or not enter the non-group [individual] market" for insurance purchased individually on ACA marketplaces.

Trumpcare is different. Under the House version - the one my Congresswoman Elise Stefanik voted "yes" to - insurance companies may discriminate, and gather people with pre-existing conditions into "high-risk pools".

Raises our health costs while making our insurance cover less, raising deductibles to a jaw-dropping $6,000.
Slashes 35 percent of the Medicaid budget by 2036, cutting health care for more than 70 million people, threatening nursing home coverage for us and our parents, and forcing people with disabilities from their homes.

Conservatives arguing for Medicaid cuts contend the rate of spending growth is unsustainable; that if it isn't reined in, the program will imperil the millions of poor people, including children, who rely on it.

US Prepared to Defend Against North Korean Attack, China Defends North Korea

Still, Bellemare is the kind of player that's typically not that hard to replace, so it's a little surprising Vegas went with him. As a result, these are not "a bunch of misfits nobody wanted", as then-winger Jody Shelley once described the 1992-93 Senators.


Another leadership test for Pelosi, who's weathered many
House Democratic leaders are taking some comfort in coming in a close second for a seat that's always been firmly in GOP hands. It is certainly morale-sapping for Democrats who still have not figured out how to secure a win over Mr Trump.


For Oklahoma, there are no good options. One half is children, many with special needs. Should they lose coverage?

"All you have to do is threaten to defund the subsidies", he said Thursday on a panel in Helena organized by the Montana Nurses Association to discuss the bill. What care would we decide they don't need anymore?

Before legislators can make a fair and effective law that outlines funding and health care delivery, it's important we hold public hearings. And without Planned Parenthood, seven counties in California would be without a clinic that provides affordable access to comprehensive contraception care. The Republicans who tout it do so because of the tax cut it creates, not its purported health-policy solutions.

As these facts come out, the BCRA has become extremely unpopular, and there is a chance of stopping it if enough Americans speak out. And if we pass our bill they say several states will discontinue the Medicaid they already have in place", he said."But they can't tell you what states.
