Obamacare repeal would spell loss of health cover for 32 million Americans

Obamacare repeal would spell loss of health cover for 32 million Americans

CNN reports that the latest attempt to repeal "Obamacare", with no replacement, could increase to 32 million more uninsured Americans, for a total of 59 million people potentially without health insurance in 2026.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell has scheduled a vote early next week on a straight-up repeal of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

One Republican senator who didn't attend the luncheon was Senate intelligence committee Chairman Richard Burr.

"This was the one we were anxious about, you weren't there", Trump said to Sen. During the luncheon, Trump contradicted McConnell, and himself, directing senators to repeal and replace simultaneously.

At the moment it is unclear as to what type of health care bill the Senate will consider.

The report from Congress' nonpartisan budget analyst says the measure would cause average premiums for people buying their own health insurance to double by 2026.

During another session with Senate Republicans to push them to pass a healthcare bill, President Trump today took pointed digs at the re-election chances of one lawmaker who opposed the first incarnation of the legislation. "Last week, Senate leadership said it would be a clean repeal ... and I think that's a good idea", Paul said.

This CBO score is an updated analysis that the office did back in 2015, when Congress also passed legislation that would've repeal Obamacare. Most of the Republican politicians have long vowed to repeal Obamacare.

He said Republicans had promised Americans they would repeal and replace President Barack Obama's signature health re law for seven years and that now is the time to act. "I regret that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failures of Obamacare will not be successful".

Those costs could soar even further under another provision of the bill that would allow insurers to offer slimmed down health plans that don't offer the basic set of health benefits now mandated by Obamacare, such as prescription drugs, maternity care and mental health services. The office also estimated that 22 million fewer people would be insured 10 years from now under the latest plan than would be insured under current law.

But on Wednesday, Trump appeared to try to revive the BCRA despite widespread discontent with the bill among GOP members.

"The motion to proceed will be just to get on the House bill and the substitute [amendment] will be, you know it'll be a judgment call the leader will make, at some point between now and Tuesday", Thune told reporters.

"I think we will look like fools if we can't deliver on that promise". No one said this law is ideal, but the GOP working alone apparently has no alternative.
