What Kind of Bad Choice Are House Republicans Facing?

The vote on the Republican bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, has been delayed.

President Donald Trump was scheduled to meet with members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus in an 11th-hour effort to secute enough votes to pass the legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act - a key campaign promise.

If the American Health Care Act is passed, I will no longer be able to afford insurance.

The Congressional Budget Office estimated the AHCA would increase the number of people who are uninsured by 24 million by the year 2026 and would reduce federal deficits by $337 billion in the coming decade. My eyesight has been restored, but the overall cost was just over $1 million. I'm anxious about myself - if an insurance plan I go on does not have to cover that, then how am I going to afford my treatment?

House Republicans are slated to vote on the GOP plan on Thursday. With all Democrats expected to vote no, Republicans need 22 votes in the House. Reducing coverage choice is the opposite of what Republicans said the AHCA would do.

Last week it was reported that about 2.5 million Michiganders could lose health care coverage under the Republicans' proposed policy (see page A3 of today's News-Review for that story from Lansing-based Capital News Service). Instead of the federal government paying for about 50 percent of states' Medicaid expenses, as it now does, states will be given a fixed amount of funding to spend on health care and insurance as they see fit.

In a statement released Thursday, he detailed what has happened since Obamacare became law: more Americans being insured, young people staying on their parents' plans until they turn 26, people receiving healthcare despite pre-existing conditions. It would allow insurance companies to charge a 30 percent penalty on people who allow coverage to lapse, and would allow them to charge up to five times more for older people than younger ones.
