Health care, A human right or a market function?

Health care, A human right or a market function?

Reminder: Obamacare is the same as the Affordable Care Act. He was talking about Obamacare, which Republicans are trying to replace with legislation now in the hands of the Senate.

Not that any Republicans in Congress will care, but the Centers for Disease Control reported Tuesday that the uninsured rate remained at a historic low a year ago.

Senate negotiators, meeting stiff resistance to the House's plans to sharply reduce the scope and reach of Medicaid, are discussing a compromise that would maintain the program's expansion under the Affordable Care Act but subject that larger version of Medicaid to new spending limits.

The Daily Mail Opinion page published a column by syndicated columnist Star Parker Fridaystating the House Republican health bill will save money and deliver better health care to everyone. A real and nagging problem of the state pools was inconsistent and often inadequate funding of the pools by the states operating them.

"Aetna just pulled out".

A single-payer system would leave the current medical system in place, but replace the for-profit insurance companies that drive up costs without making us any healthier. This is why I now receive my healthcare through the Obamacare exchanges, though I decline the congressional subsidy. In some states - Tennessee and Iowa, for example - there are areas that risk having no insurer at all. Eight billion dollars has been sanctioned to help with these costs over five years, but that is a drop in the bucket - especially when recognizing that the subsidies Obamacare implemented to help people buy insurance will be reduced overall.

Republicans in the House of Representatives took a critical first step towards keeping our promise to repeal and replace Obamacare by passing the American Health Care Act (AHCA). "It is important to me to hear Mohawk Valley residents' health care priorities to pass along to Senate leaders, in the hopes that this legislation that could be devastating to so many people never sees the light of day", the assemblyman added. But McCaskill said that the Trump administration, by talking down the law and threatening to withhold funds created to help stabilize exchange markets under Obamacare, is responsible for its bad condition. Simpson said he voted for it knowing the bill would not become law without significant changes.
