How health care controls us

How health care controls us

Anyone who has interacted with the American health-care system knows that it is extremely complex and even something as trivial as deciphering a health-care bill can be an arduous and complicated task.

The Senate is expected to debate and discuss repeal and replacement efforts throughout the week. "The current proposals are simply unacceptable as written, and any attempts to repeal the ACA (Affordable Care Act) without a concurrent replacement is also unacceptable", he said in a July 25 statement.

"The health care reform proposals now under consideration would harm millions of struggling Americans by leaving too many at risk of losing adequate health coverage and continue to exclude too many people, including immigrants", Bishop Frank J. Dewane of Venice, Fla., said in a statement.

"As we have shown in this analysis, the ACA substantially improved health insurance coverage and access to care for the poor and significantly reduced socioeconomic gaps in health care access in just two years".

Obamacare was created to fail and usher in a single-payer health-care system. That's an understatement as many low- to medium-income Americans are about to find out when the rug is pulled out from under them.

The plan would substitute a different form of tax credits, smaller for many people because they would be tied to skimpier health plans.

The Better Care Reconciliation Act is a cruel proposal. "Such changes can be made with narrower reforms that do not jeopardize the access to health care that millions now receive", he added.

The rejection of "clean repeal" pushed by Sen.

Under the BCRA, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), found that it would result in 22 million fewer Americans having health insurance by 2026, whereas under the "repeal only" bill, the CBO found that 32 million fewer Americans would have health insurance by 2026. A slimmed-down repeal plan probably would surface on the Senate floor as an amendment if the chamber is unable to pass a fuller demolition of the law.

With two legislative approaches having been rejected by Republicans - the comprehensive measure and then the repeal-only measure - Democrats were left wondering what exactly Republican leaders were cooking up and how they could reasonably expect senators to vote on that legislation in a day or two. It would buy the Senate's GOP leaders more time, because its passage would lead to a conference committee with the House.
