Who Wins, Who Loses With Senate Health Care Bill — CHART


Senate Republicans have finally unveiled a draft of their Obamacare replacement bill, which Democrats were quick to condemn.

Lisa Olson, director of policy and programs with the Wisconsin Primary Health Care Association, said the Senate bill would also tie funding for Medicaid to a slower growth rate than the House version.

"We're very nervous about the increase in needed care".

The plan gets rid of those mandates.

-Repeal a tax penalty for people who do not get health insurance, saving them $38 billion over the next decade.

In addition to reducing the number of uninsured, "there has also been a huge drop in the number of people showing up at hospitals without insurance, which is a positive trend that has saved millions of dollars in Michigan's health-care system, "Snyder has said in a statement".

The Senate bill maintains more of Obamacare's tax credits to help low income Americans afford insurance.

SENATE: The legislation would maintain the popular Obamacare provision that young adults be allowed to stay on their parents' health insurance until age 26.

The Senate bill does keep more of Obamacare's protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

Both bills would eliminate most of the taxes imposed by the Affordable Care Act.

Sen. Susan Collins of ME reiterated her opposition to language blocking federal money for Planned Parenthood, which many Republicans oppose because it provides abortions.

Now that the Senate Republican health care bill is public, it is clearer than ever why Majority Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans hid it for weeks.

The amendment would force the state to take on the Medicaid costs of the counties or face a reduction in federal money.

Olson said the move shifts more risk to states and may prompt them to rethink who is eligible to receive care under Medicaid, putting coverage for low-income and elderly Wisconsinites at risk.

Several Republican senators have already said they oppose the bill, at least as of now.

Senate leaders want a floor vote on the bill before the Fourth of July.

The House of Representatives narrowly passed its healthcare bill last month.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he hopes to hold a vote on the measure next week, though Johnson said Wednesday he "can't imagine" voting for the legislation on that timeline.

HOUSE: The bill would repeal most Obamacare taxes retroactively after December 31, 2016, and delay the Cadillac tax to 2026.

"This is a nasty bill and they are trying to cover it up with little things here and there", said Senator Chuck Schumer, D-NY.

Cruz, in a separate statement, emphasized the need to rein in Medicaid spending and lower premiums.

CAROLINE PEARSON: If you're paying, you know, a similar percentage of income, you're getting a less-generous product under this new plan. This money is used to operate 650 health care centers nationwide. He said amendments during the upcoming debate "cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation". NY counties pay about 13 percent of the cost of Medicaid. Even if it passes, House conservatives will probably not go for the Senate version.

Other Republicans senators who could end up opposing the bill for the same reason are Sens.
