GOP senators search for health care deal

I actually think it will get even better.

Republicans were so desperate for a victory that they didn't even wait for the Congressional Budget Office to analyze the bill and talk about how much the legislative change will cost and how many people will lose their health insurance under the plan. The goal was to make coverage more affordable for older adults regardless of their health status.

Myth #1: Obamacare is working.

Eight years ago the Democratic Party was pushing a health care bill of its own, promising a new era for health care in America. Medica recently announced it's likely to abandon Iowa - leaving almost the entire state without an insurer for the individual market. Next year, Virginians are expected to see a 20 percent increase in their premiums on the individual market. For example, vision and hearing screenings can identify students who need eyeglasses or hearing assistance so they can pay attention and succeed in class. Reducing screening will hurt those students and require expensive remediation later in the students' school years.

"The congressman is continuing to work to ensure that all Americans have access to coverage options they can afford, focusing specifically on making sure we increase the amount of the tax credits for lower income Americans and for those nearing the age of retirement", Joanna Rodriguez told PolitiFact. By undoing Obamacare's price controls, the ACHA finally halts the "death spiral" of rising premiums and falling enrollment - especially for young people. Analysts say that means insurers could consider health risks when setting premiums. Rob Portman, a Republican, said he does not support the House bill in its current form, in part because it does not protect Ohioans who benefited from the Medicaid expansion. The MacArthur/Upton Amendment adds $8 billion on top of the $130 billion available through the AHCA's "Stability" and "Invisible" risk pool programs. Their concept is to establish "pools" of such Americans and have them pay higher premiums for that coverage. Some Medicaid funding is now given to schools in order to help provide mental and physical health services to students, and cutting that funding would potentially force schools to make significant cuts to their mental health care budgets.

For all its procedural advantages, reconciliation has a catch called the Byrd Rule, which provides that reconciliation is to be used exclusively to pass budget-related legislation, and thus any provision of AHCA that does not affect federal spending is vulnerable to being struck. There of course was never any intent to exempt Congress so Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) introduced a simple two-page standalone bill that statutorily applied the law to all members. In 2009, House Democrats approved a cap-and-trade energy measure, which also died in the Senate. That included 81 percent of Democrats and 60 percent of independents, 54 percent of men and 58 percent of women. The House plan definitely comes up short on the specifics, but the Obamacare experience screwed people over, too.

The stark reality is that Obamacare is on a trajectory to collapse and is now failing the people of Illinois' 18th district.

Analysts at Height Securities, LLC say the U.S. Senate has to deal with healthcare tax provisions in the version hastily passed last week by the U.S. House before it can tackle the GOP's other signature proposal: overhauling the tax code.
