Senate health care bill includes deep cuts to Medicaid

Senate health care bill includes deep cuts to Medicaid

"And I'm announcing today that in this form, I simply will not support it". 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.

Sen. Ted Cruz is one of four Republican senators who aren't on board with that chamber's version of the American Health Care Act. "They are living healthier and happier lives because of that decision - I don' think that can be overstated enough".

That could add Heller's name to Trump's call list.

The bill, which was written behind closed doors, is facing its fair share of criticism from Democrats who say that it negatively mimics the House's plan. Sen.

Heller echoed his colleagues' sentiments on Friday. It would erase taxes on higher earners and the medical industry that helped Obama's law expand coverage by roughly 20 million Americans.

Colorado could lose $15 billion over the next decade if the Senate health care bill becomes law.

One of the most controversial aspects of the senate bill is its treatment of Medicaid. Three of them said they anxious it does not go far enough in repealing the ACA, known as Obamacare.




Several Republican senators have already said they oppose the bill, at least as of now.

"It's not that they're opposed", he said.

Medicaid - the program created to help poor Americans get healthcare - will stop being expanded by 2021, meaning millions of them will not be able to access treatment. "And we'll see if we can take care of that". He celebrated the bill's narrow passage last month in a Rose Garden event with House Republican leaders.

"It's going to be very good", Trump said at the White House, according to CNN. It was the building block for the Senate legislation unveiled Thursday.

"We're anxious about the burden it creates for the states", Kristine Grow, spokeswoman at America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), said on Friday.

Hospital stocks have been under pressure from the possibility of health-care reform because they have been more profitable under Obamacare, which the Congressional Budget Office said would result in 23 million more Americans with insurance over a decade than under the House GOP plan.

Cruz said the bill should allow individuals to purchase health insurance across state lines, which would increase competition and lower costs.
