I have my own concerns about the Senate's health care bill, although I think conservatives should be careful not to make the flawless the enemy of the somewhat-better.
The White House's suggestion to a full repeal seem to go against McConnell's demands. But their latest bill, which Senate GOP leaders hope to pass sometime this month, wouldn't live up to their promises or come anywhere close. Should they lose coverage?
They are attacking Hillary Clinton. These young adults may be completing their education, working part time, or in entry level jobs that don't provide benefits, and this provision of the law gives them time to get their careers started and to begin paying down other expenses, such as student loans, without worrying about paying for health insurance.
Health care, as Trump has noted, is complicated.
First the Republicans criticized Sens. That changed under the ACA, because the law specifically prohibited insurance companies from discriminating against anyone with a pre-existing condition.
"Where's your plan?" tweeted the GOP to Clinton. Why is it that we're still the only civilized nation that doesn't have 100-percent health care for everyone? But it was more detailed than what then-presidential-candidate Donald Trump had put forward and, fully fleshed out, Clinton's proposal would have represented a substantial commitment of government resources. It would roll back significant progress we've made in expanding women's access to the health care they need.
A lot of political campaign talk previous year centered on job loss in the steel and coal sectors, but American communities with big health care companies could suffer similar fates.
Now that the Senate's health bill (Better Care Reconciliation Act) has come out from behind closed doors so that it can be examined in the light of day, it is apparent this bill threatens to cause great harm to Iowans and our country. That money can't be recouped through state taxes. Middle class and poor people would see higher rates, higher deductibles and poorer coverage.
Obamacare has left far more than just these 9 million without insurance. "I'm determined to stop this bill, and stories of what's at stake for families in CT will help me make that case".
The public doesn't share that conviction. In January he promised the electorate a simultaneous process, and he suggested Congress do repeal and replace together.
