Letters: Don't jam through health care bill

President Trump had tweeted Friday that if Republican senators can't pass their highly controversial legislation to replace the Affordable Care Act, they should simply repeal the Affordable Care Act first and replace it later. The spectacularly dumb argument here is actually that Obamacare is failing because it hasn't succeeded in achieving universal coverage, so we should embrace a GOP bill that would leave almost 50 million uncovered in 10 years.

Heitkamp has been the most vocal about the Republican legislation.

The concerns echo the country's largest physician's group, the American Medical Association, which said it opposes the Senate bill and cited concerns about access to health care and cuts to Medicaid spending. And billions of dollars' worth of cuts mean that some people with disabilities may lose their coverage for assisted living services.

"A lot of people are realizing that the problems with an insurance-based system are not going to be solved by Washington", said the bill's sponsor, Assembly Health Care Committee Chairman Dick Gottfried, D-Manhattan.

There are already too many families struggling to figure out how they will pay their bills.

Just last week I saw a child who was behind on his vaccines and had not had a check-up in over a year.

If passed, the health care legislation now before the U.S. Senate will profoundly affect the life of every person in this country, and one-sixth of the U.S. economy.

It has been seven years since the Democrat-controlled Congress and Obama administration signed into law the so-called Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known by most as "Obamacare". MS is one of at least 20 states that has decided not to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, known as "Obamacare". It's basically a cut compared to the current funding approach, which includes money for states that expanded their Medicaid programs under the Affordable Care Act.

"We're still several weeks away from a vote, I think", Toomey said Wednesday during an hour-long appearance before a live studio audience at WHTM-TV in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

You could convince me that they would feel under even more pressure to come up with a new plan. If it's determined to repeal the Affordable Care Act, it needs to come up with a plan that's better. That was somewhat to be expected as many of these are individuals who were previously uninsured and lacked a primary care physician.

Gerald Friedman, Professor of Economics at the University of MA at Amherst, estimates that a single payer health care system would save the United States $600 billion in its first year alone.
