Repeal Efforts

  • Senate Health Bill Would Revamp Medicaid, Alter ACA Guarantees, Cut Premium Support Kaiser Health News by Julie Rovner— Republicans in the U.S. Senate on Thursday unveiled a bill that would dramatically transform the nation's Medicaid program, make significant changes to the federal health law's tax credits that help lower-income people buy insurance and allow states to water down changes to some of the law's coverage guarantees. The bill also repeals the tax mechanism that funded the Affordable Care Act's benefits, resulting in hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts for the wealthy and health care industry. 

  • Senate Leaders Try to Appease Members as Support for Health Bill Slips New York Times by Robert Pear and Thomas Kaplan—Senate Republican leaders scrambled Sunday to rally support for their health care bill as opposition continued to build inside and outside Congress, and as several Republican senators questioned whether it would be approved this week. President Trump expressed confidence that the bill to repeal the guts of the Affordable Care Act would pass.

  • Senate Health Care Bill Faces Serious Resistance from GOP Moderates Washington Post by by Juliet Eilperin and Amy Goldstein—A small group of moderate Republican senators, worried that their leaders' health-care bill could damage the nation’s social safety net, may pose at least as significant an obstacle to the measure’s passage as their colleagues on the right. The vast changes the legislation would make to Medicaid, the country’s broadest source of public health insurance, would represent the largest single step the government has ever taken toward conservatives’ long-held goal of reining in federal spending on health-care entitlement programs in favor of a free-market system.

  • Health Care Groups Issue Scathing Criticism Of Senate Bill The Hill by Rachel Roubein and Jessie Hellmann—Leading health care advocacy groups are urging the Senate to make substantial changes to its healthcare plan released Thursday, warning it could have negative consequences for people across the country. The proposal includes deep cuts to Medicaid and fundamentally reshapes the program from an open-ended government commitment to a system of capped federal payments that limit spending.
