California Health Advocates Not Satisfied By Tweaks To Replacement Plan

Cheers echoed from the streets of downtown L.A. today, where the almost 1,000 gathered to protest the repeal and replace of the Affordable Care Act, which was postponed at least until tomorrow. It also will keep the Medicaid expansion, but only until 2020. The bill would impose an "age tax" on older Americans.

He also said that while health prices are rising - contrary to his goal of bending the cost curve - they're going up at a slower rate than previous decades.

The plan is still evolving, and many GOP lawmakers have said they want to see changes that reduce the impact on older consumers. None of us can predict whether we will need treatment for cancer or mental illness, and even the need for prenatal care may take us by surprise. The Vista Republican has introduced his own plan, based on the health insurance plan for federal employees. He has criticized Republicans who are "no" votes, and talked about how he has been successful in turning those "no" votes into "yes" votes. That explains why AHCA is the only thing President Donald Trump won't put his name on.

For some members of the GOP, apparently not. Thanks to this law, more than ninety percent of Americans are insured - the highest rate in our history. However, those representatives have some responsibility to the people, and those stakeholders in the healthcare industry, do not like the replacement.

Governor Rick Snyder warned Michigan's delegation that the bill could hurt almost 2 million residents in Michigan's Medicaid program if signed into law, and end the expansion of coverage to more than 650,000 people. The revisions included increasing the growth rate of capped federal payments to the states for elderly and disabled beneficiaries, barring additional states from expanding Medicaid and ending most ACA taxes this year rather than next year. Its tax credit program would also do nothing for almost half of Americans who don't earn enough to pay income tax, and the overwhelming majority of the tax cuts would benefit millionaires, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
