The Latest GOP Health-Care Scheme Fulfills an Old Conservative Dream

Bill Cassidy (R., La.) and would replace Obamacare's top-down federal structure and replace it with block grants to states.

Many Americans sat on the edges of their seats as Republican-led efforts to repeal and replace, or just straight up repeal, the Affordable Care Act-the suddenly much more popular healthcare law-failed in Congress earlier this summer.

The liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, for example, complains that "Cassidy-Graham would ... allow states to spend their federal block grant on virtually any health care goal, not just for health coverage".

"Democrats in the Senate will not stop fighting to protect Americans from the Republicans' risky plan", he added. Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana to replace the Affordable Care Act's insurance subsidies with block grants to states, which would decide how to help people get health coverage. Lawmakers have been seeking to repeal and replace Obamacare through a procedural maneuver known as reconciliation, which allows the Senate to limit debate with 51 votes.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has not promised to bring the bill to the floor for a vote.

Graham/Cassidy keeps Obamacare and tells the states to run it. They'd also be able to get out from under ObamaCare's disruptive and costly market regulations and benefit mandates. It would also permit insurers to charge higher premiums to people who are now insured through the Obamacare exchanges as a condition of "continued enrollment".

Alphabet mulling $1 billion investment in Lyft
The possible investment is extremely interesting because of the fact that Google also invested in Uber back in 2013. With a billion dollars in its wallet, Lyft could take advantage of this by increasing its market share in the US.

The simple fact is that all the major elements of the ACA - prohibiting discrimination by insurers based on medical history, requiring that people buy insurance even if they're now healthy, premium subsidies and Medicaid expansion that make insurance affordable even for those with lower incomes - are there because they're necessary.

"It's either this or we're going to Obamacare and Bernie-Care", Graham said, speaking to Breitbart.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., has spoken positively about the bill, as has Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. "We are giving the power over health care to the states, not DC". A more recent twist has been the "per capita cap" which adjusts federal funding to the number of people deemed eligible in each state. "If you're not for this, then you really got to wonder whether or not you're a Republican".

To be sure, the chances of the Cassidy-Graham bill getting approved in the Senate are slim.

"I don't think it'll be any good for the country". "Nevertheless, FreedomWorks is treating it as what is likely to be the last serious attempt to reform Obamacare".

And all this is assuming no other Republicans defect, even though Graham-Cassidy includes steep Medicaid cuts - an idea that gave many Republicans serious pause in previous incarnations. "Inaction is not an option, and I sincerely hope that Senators Graham and Cassidy have found a way to address the Obamacare crisis".
