Sen. Warren warns health care fight not over after ACHA defeat

29 March 2017

Even though the American Health Care Act supported by Trump and some Republicans in Congress was effectively defeated on Friday, Warren said the battle over health care is not settled. The measure lacked the 218 necessary votes. "I don't care if it costs me votes or not", he said during an interview on CBS in September. I mean, one of the ways that the system has been stabilized is by requiring people to have health insurance somehow, and that has expanded the pool of people in the system. Many conservatives charged that Obamacare had been set up to fail precisely so that Democrats could eventually introduce socialized medicine as a replacement - a "Trojan Horse" tactic.

Why are President Trump and the Republicans making false claims about the unlikely demise of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insurance exchanges?

According to the March 13-23 poll, 49 percent of American adults said the AHCA was "not an improvement" over Obamacare, which helped about 20 million people get insurance coverage.

"You can't shoot everything that moves", she said.

But there's still a lot of uncertainty about how Secretary Price at the Department of Health and Human Services and how the Trump administration is going to run those marketplaces, what investment they'll put into that and also whether they'll change the regulations that kind of are where the rubber meets the road on how the insurance companies are supposed to operate. So the point that you noted - what the administration has done has said that if you don't check that you had health insurance on your tax return, that will no longer be a problem going forward.

While the USA bishops have applauded pro-life elements of the American Health Care Act, they also have criticized other elements and expressed concern for its impact on the disadvantaged.

Vt., called it "a major victory" after House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., announced Friday afternoon that he was pulling the bill, which would have repealed much of President Obama's Affordable Care Act and which failed to garner enough support. But the thought is what's going to happen in 2018, and will things settle down?

"Unfortunately, the legislation before the House today is now unacceptable as it would place significant new costs and barriers to care on my constituents in New Jersey", Frelinghuysen said in a statement. Organizations representing almost 400,000 doctors sent a letter to congressional leaders early this year, saying any new health care legislation must ensure that "all health insurance products should be required to cover evidence-based essential benefits".

All four states expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.

As she sees it, the bill is "a pro-life disaster in the fact that when you take health care away from people, you take life". This year, my premium has almost doubled, and paying for coverage, plus the deductibles, is a struggle. And how do you shape the health care system to make it more efficient?

Insurance company stocks were a bit of a different story, however.

Other parts of the law, like the expansion of Medicaid to enhance coverage for the poor, and changes to allow young people to stay on their parents' health plans, have been popular.
