Senate prepares for new version of healthcare bill

Thursday, July 13, 2017 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

(Worthy News) - Senate Republicans on Thursday morning are expected to release an adjusted healthcare bill that would repeal and replace portions of Obamacare, even as factions of the party remain deeply divided over its rumored contents.

The latest draft is expected to include an amendment proposed by conservative Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah that would allow health insurance companies to offer less-expensive plans that do not include Obamacare's essential health benefits as long as they provide at least one plan that includes them.

It is also expected to include a $45 billion fund for states to use in the battle against the opioid epidemic and would maintain Obamacare's 3.8 percent investment tax and 0.9 percent Medicare surtax on upper-income earners. [ Source: Washington Examiner ]

  1. Number #1 is GET RID OF MEDICAID - the wholesale placing of tens of millions as freeloaders on an American Healthcare System. 85% of people on Obamacare are non-payers. The 15% that are payers can't afford to use it because the deductibles are so high. Obamacare effectively forces payers to pay for non-payers, and keeps payers from being able to use it. That's Genius! That's the Devil!
