Nurses Blast Trumpcare As Danger To Public Health
McCarthy also said Republicans will shortly begin a third phase of the plan to replace the law - piggybacking on the partial repeal being considered now, as well as administrative actions. Ever since the Affordable Care Act was passed, GOP members of Congress have called for its repeal.
Nonetheless, proponents are pressing on.
The plan, dubbed the American Health Care Act, would leave the structure of the Affordable Care Act intact but weaken its constituent parts. Obamacare critics have suggested that the law was intentionally created to fail to allow Democrats to pass a single-payer healthcare system.
The agriculture commissioner of North Dakota from 1996 to 2009, Johnson said that when he traveled around the state and asked farmers to name their biggest problem, "the most common answer I got ... was health care".
The Republican health care bill under consideration in the House of Representatives would change health coverage for a lot of people. The American Medical Association, the American Hospital Association, AARP and a host of other advocacy groups have come out in opposition to the plan.
"Our hospitals will face an even deeper unfunded obligation in caring for the uninsured", wrote Elizabeth Ryan, president and chief executive officer of the association.
And most of all, a Democratic alternative that leads to more and cheaper coverage with a lower deficit would puncture the main argument Paul Ryan is making about why the troubled American Health Care Act needs to pass.
It would no longer require that Americans buy health insurance, for instance, and it would eliminate current subsidies, replacing them with a fixed refundable tax credit. Like Obamacare, however, the Republican bill allows children to stay on a parent's insurance until they reach age 26 and prevents insurers from denying coverage to people with pre-existing medical conditions.
The inevitable result is that fewer people will buy health insurance - and many of those will opt for cheaper, bare-bones insurance policies with high deductibles (not the "lower deductibles" Trump promised).
But while Republicans are trying to keep up momentum in the face of growing opposition from House conservatives, Senate moderates, doctor and hospital interest groups and a host of others, it's important to remember the effort we're seeing on the bill now being debated is the beginning stage of what will ultimately be a very long process.
While the pending measure would send ripples throughout the nation's health care industry, it would have the most dramatic affect on those who do not receive insurance through their employer or Medicare.
"We'd be able to swallow, I think ... some things that they may think are a good idea which we think are too costly and geared to the rich, if that's the price to pay to do something else, depending on what else they're willing to do".
