Stirpe: All New Yorkers deserve affordable and quality health care

She also suggested any discussion of health care should include talks about a so-called "single payer" plan.

"The working group that counts is all 52 of us, and we're having extensive meetings" daily, McConnell said last week.

The current Republican replacement plan is a House bill that several Senate Republicans have said is not workable. Safety net programs, such as Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program, should be effectively funded under the new health care law, AMA added.

"The Republicans have literally locked the Democrats out of the negotiations over the Senate health care bill", Warren said. Under that practice, insurers base premiums on consumers' health status.

Other measures in the Republican health initiative have drawn big headlines, but the Medicaid plan could affect many more people and shift significant costs onto hospitals and states.

Sens. Rob Portman and Pat Toomey have been trying to strike a compromise that bridges disagreements between Republican moderates who want to keep Medicaid expansion and conservatives who want to rapidly eliminate it and rein in spending. The GOP health care strategy is now clear: It's a $1 trillion "revenue-neutral" tax cut for the rich, "paid for" by a $1 trillion cut to "health care" for millions of Americans.

"There's nothing to compare it to because we don't have health care in this country", he went on.

As a general rule, younger people would save money under the plan, while older people would pay more.

He says it is hard for Alaska to cut down on expensive health care because of the geography.

During his presidency, Obama enhanced Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to expand coverage for more people. In other words, there is mutual disinterest in bipartisanship when it comes to the fundamentals of Obamacare.

A new study by the non-profit Kaiser Family Foundation reveals just how devastating the American Health Care Act will be to individuals with pre-existing conditions. The House GOP bill, which was approved and moved to the Senate two weeks ago, would let states jettison that popular provision for people who have a gap in coverage.

While House passage of their bill was hailed by the president in an unusual Rose Garden ceremony earlier this month, Republicans are still a long way away from fulfilling their campaign promises on health care.
