Health care debate shifting over to Senate

"I would have to look into finding somewhere, hope that they accept the family planning Medicaid, which isn't a guarantee", said Kessler.

Also, say goodbye to numerous government subsidies that help people obtain coverage on the insurance market.

According to NPR, a last-minute addition to the bill provides $8 million dollars for states to set-up these pools, however critics say it's not enough money to guarantee coverage.

"Thanks to Speaker Ryan's leadership, conservatives kept their promise and are now one step closer in delivering quality, affordable care and rescuing health care from total collapse", said Corry Bliss, American Action Network's executive director, in a statement. And they are urging the Senate to make some serious changes to that bill.

"My guess is that leader McConnell is going to take some time here", Coons responded.

Another ad launched unusually early in the congressional re-election season comes from AARP, and targets House Republicans, warning that people with pre-existing conditions could face premium hikes of as much as $25,000 a year under the House-passed bill.

A separate Politicoreport added the other day that inside the White House, senior administration officials say no one "really loves the legislation", and Trump himself "has expressed misgivings". "There'd be a House bill". The Senate approved a spending bill averting a government shutdown that would have been disastrous for the party with a monopoly on power. So to get what Trump calls the mother of all tax cuts, Republicans want to cut the taxes out of Obamacare in the FY2017 reconciliation (that only lasts until next September) and then have a lower baseline for cutting taxes in the FY2018 reconciliation (the budget that begins on October 1).

"Women's health is a big part of this and women are a majority of the population, and their health interests deserve to be contemplated in any reform", Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

"This is a first step in fixing the issues of the high out-of-pocket costs of health care premiums and the bureaucracy of the ACA, though it is not a flawless bill", Stivers said in a statement regarding the bill.

The bill still has to make it through the Senate, where its prospects are shaky at best - but the passage was a major victory for Trump, who seemed happily surprised at his success. "There's not a Democrat that doesn't realize we need to work on (ObamaCare's) private market".

The senator said she also opposes the bill's ban on Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood. That means he can afford to lose just two senators; Vice President Mike Pence would vote to break a 50-50 tie in his constitutional role as vice president of the Senate.

In effect, Paul Ryan is picking winners and losers.

"That really hurts a state like ME, where we have an older population living in largely more expensive, rural areas, as far as health care is concerned", she said.
