Barbara Braden: GOP health plan a leap backwards

The Congressional Budget Office has estimated the Republican bill to replace the Affordable Care Act would reduce Medicaid by $880 billion over ten years, eliminate coverage for some 14 million people, and place a cap on expenditures for those still in the program. The House is set to vote on that bill today. Virtually all of those contacting the office opposed the measure, according Walz's spokesman Jesse Stock.

Local health care access advocates gathered Wednesday to ask New Mexicans to call their political leaders and urge them to oppose the Republican-led effort to undo parts of Obamacare in a bill called the American Health Care Act.

The Affordable Care Act requires insurers to cover a number of baseline "essential benefits", including hospitalization, maternity and newborn care, and mental health treatments.

The Republicans' plan proposes that Americans who are buying their own insurance receive money from the government.

He also said, economics aside, most people likely know someone who has insurance through Medicaid.

However, if the new GOP health care plan is adopted, it would be a step backwards, not a step toward improving health care in America.

Nearly half of Canadians want illegal immigrants deported back to US
In January, a separate Ipsos poll found that 59 percent of Canadians approved of Trudeau, while 41 percent disapproved. That's what's pissing most people off. "Illegal border crossings are increasing with no end in sight", she said.

As reported in The World- Herald on March 16, those most in danger are Nebraskans who aren't yet 65, the age at which they qualify for Medicare, but don't have employer-sponsored insurance.

In addition to the Medicaid expansion rollback, the GOP bill would also get rid of a mandate to get insurance or pay a penalty, it would also get rid of the penalty on large employers that don't offer medical insurance. That means 5.6 percent more of the people in District 13 now have health insurance.

The former president said his law has saved almost 100,000 lives by insisting on mammograms and vaccines as basic care, and improving hospital care. "So I believe we can pass it".

Speaks, who is going back to school to become a guidance counselor, didn't have insurance for a few months when she chose to refocus and make a career change.

Members of the conservative Freedom Caucus have said they would not support the current plan, complaining it doesn't go far enough in repealing the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. "Some of them will not be able to get the care they need, some of them will not be able to get emergency care that they need".
