Zeldin responds to failed attempt to repeal Affordable Care Act

Many Republicans say consumers have a right to buy slimmer, less costly plans if they want, and that mandating these benefits has made premiums soar.

– Rep. Nancy Pelosi claimed the bill would force 24 million off insurance.

Scrambling to nail down votes for the House health care bill, Republicans are considering ways to ease federal requirements that insurers cover such basic services as prescription drugs, maternity care and substance abuse treatment.

In 2018, the report states, 4.9 million people will no longer have Medicaid because of eligibility changes, a number that grows to 14.4 million by 2026. The American Hospital Association raised concerns about the millions of people who could lose coverage under the bill.

– She also asserted the bill would ‘destroy almost 2 million jobs’. Trump said it would be ironic that opposition by anti-abortion lawmakers would preserve federal funding for Planned Parenthood, the women’s health care provider that includes abortions in its programs.

The Republican bill is great for corporations and the rich – it hands them $600 billion in tax breaks.

It’s a tricky proposition for Republican lawmakers, because Democrats are certain to challenge any of their move as out-of-bounds under special budget rules that would allow the GOP health bill to clear the Senate with just 51 votes.

But that figure does not imply large, immediate layoffs.

STAT: The ACA replacement would devastate America’s health – “As a physician who has treated patients in the emergency department before and after the Affordable Care Act was instituted, I have seen firsthand how it has transformed the lives of many of my patients. Furthermore, in the three years that the ACA has been in effect, the Philadelphia region has added approximately 20,000 jobs in the healthcare and education sector”, said Kenney. This could affect people who, for example, have to leave work because of an illness or injury and lose employer-based coverage. “As we have indicated previously we are open to changes to the bill that make it better and grow its support”.
