Tim Walz announced on Monday he plans to vote against the Republican plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
But on the brink of the health-care vote in the House, a group of Republicans are aiming to repeal ObamaCare's minimum requirements.
He also said they would gain 10 Senate seats if health care and tax reform are both passed.
Among Democrats and Democratic leaners, comparably large majorities approve of the health care law (83%) and say the government is responsible for making sure all Americans have coverage (85%). Without required coverage for essential health benefits across all plans, insurers would likely offer fewer generous plans out of fear the only people who would be willing to pay more for them would be sick people who need them. The president seems to think that the bill under discussion in the House of Representatives will repeal and replace the ACA, but still allow individuals to purchase affordable coverage. Republicans and Republican leaners with no more than a high school diploma are almost twice as likely as those with a college degree to say ensuring health care coverage is a government responsibility (43% vs. 22%).
Government Medical College and Hospital doctors go on leave en masse
A public interest writ petition was filed on Monday in Bombay High Court against the doctors' agitation by a social activist Afaq Mandaviya.
I don't recall any campaign discussion that focused on changing Medicaid as we know it.
House Republicans have been advised that procedural votes on the bill will still be held tonight and that a vote on the bill could still happen tomorrow. They don't care to make it better for Americans because it'd require more funding. Recent counts indicated about 28 Republicans meant to vote against the measure, which would stop the overhaul.
Though it is true that the AHCA would reduce the federal deficit by $337 billion dollars over the next decade, these savings would come at the expense of millions of Americans, who would no longer be able to afford health insurance.
The previous Affordable Care Act included the Community First Choice Option, which activists say is the only Medicaid program aimed at ensuring that people with disabilities can live in the community they choose. Medicaid spending for low-income residents would be slashed.
