"The Senate version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) purports to be a "repeal and replace" of the Affordable Care Act, but is really a draconian restructuring and gutting of Medicaid, the program that covers 20% of Americans and is one of the primary payers of addiction and mental health treatment in the US", the National Council said in a statement.

Finally, Crapo said, the Senate's plan to eliminate "burdensome" individual and employer mandates for coverage would help stabilize the insurance market. He said "small tweaks" during the upcoming debate "cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation". The changes in the Senate bill to Medicaid are so substantial (both in rolling back the pool of eligible people and in implementing a slower formula for keeping up with inflation) that there is a good chance that House Speaker Paul Ryan's dream of ending the Medicaid entitlement and shipping it back to the states won't ever come to pass. Republican Reps. Dave Reichert, R-Auburn, and Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Vancouver, also voted against the House version of the health-care bill. No, this bill's primary goal, much like the goal of the House one before it, is not to give people better health care, but to give rich people more money and poor people less. "No president has trashed a former president more than Trump has trashed Obama - personally and in terms of his legacy".
In a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday, Hatch called criticisms of the bill being considered behind closed doors the result of "poll-tested. strategy" from Democrats and "so off-base that it would nearly be humorous if the issue was something less important".

Sens. Paul Ryan of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin all said they would not support the current bill after its long-awaited reveal.

The safety-net provider delivers a wide range of reproductive health services and cancer screenings to more than 2.5 million women, Kaiser reported.

Tax boosts Obama levied on upper income people and medical industry companies would be repealed, and another on costly employer-provided health insurance would be delayed.
"This bill hits OH with a one-two punch - first taking away the resources OH depends on to care for children and fight opioid addiction and then making it impossible for the state to make up the difference", said U.S. Sen.
The South Carolina race, also June 20, ended up even closer than the Georgia race, with the Republican winning by just 3 points. Money flooded in from around the country, and platoons of young activists worked the phones and knocked on doors.

Trump waded in Thursday morning with a tweet urging Democrats to keep Pelosi on, saying having her as a foil helps the GOP . And they tied him to Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi , a bête noire of conservatives nationwide.

The discovery in those cases is underway, but his deposition testimony will remain on hold until the retrial in the criminal case. Comedian Aparna Nancherla, who frequently posts social commentary, tweeted, "Ask women again why they don't report their rapes".
