President Donald Trump took aim at insurers on Monday in an escalating threat to cut the healthcare subsidy payments that make Obamacare plans affordable, after repeatedly urging Republican senators to keep working to undo his Democratic predecessor's health care law.
Chris Van Hollen said Wednesday that Senate Democrats are willing to work with Republicans on tax reform, such as simplifying the tax code. The bill is now headed to the president's desk. But the resolution could still be used after Sept. 30, even though the fiscal year ends at that time, former Senate staffers told Bloomberg BNA Aug. 1. Emotions are running far too high to expect that holding lawmakers' noses to the grindstone would result in success. Hence, the Congress had the lowest approval rating in modern history.
The hapless and ineffectual Mitch McConnell must immediately resign as Senate Majority Leader. Everyone is supposed to buy insurance, but 40 counties in the U.S. have no insurance companies offering any policies. Susan Collins in voting down the repeal bill. Nine insurers - one fewer than this year and five fewer than in 2016 - want to participate in the Michigan Health Insurance Marketplace next year. Is it possible to figure out precise numbers on how much time a measure spent in committee or being debated on the floor of the House or Senate? That has given Congress members, on both sides of the political aisle, plenty of time to evaluate the law, determine what works and what doesn't, and draft ways to improve it.
The court reasoned that ending the subsidies would result in more uninsured state residents, which would in turn shift health costs to public hospitals or force people to forego care altogether. Insurance companies would have no choice but to accelerate the process some already have begun, of pulling out of entire regions.
The employers would establish a federal stability fund to an unspecified amount, similar to the House-passed American Health Care Act (AHCA) and the Senate leadership's Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA). "There is a time to be born and a time to die".
