Gov. Kasich: Neither party 'cares about helping poor people'

Kasich said when encountering criticism over his lack of party loyalty on the issue, "No one should think I have any joy in working against the leadership of my party".

Kasich was referring to an analysis released Monday by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which estimated that the Senate GOP bill to repeal and replace Obamacare would increase the ranks of the uninsured by 22 million by 2026, compared to current law.

Committee Chairman Ryan Smith said Tuesday afternoon Republicans were mostly in agreement on the bill - it was just a matter of putting it in writing.

Unlike those conservative senators, some of whom would need to support the legislation for it to have any chance of passing in the Senate, Kasich said he has "deep concerns" about the bill because he believes it will take important government services away from people. And I looked at them and I thought: Are these people being served?

Critics of the GOP healthcare bill say cuts to Medicaid and only $2 billion included for substance abuse disorders isn't enough to battle the national opioid epidemic, creating another roadblock in getting the legislation passed, The Hill reports. Kasich said. "Why don't we have them go live on their exchange where they can get two, three, four thousand dollars a year to cover their health care exchange costs".

And if Democrats choose not to, then "shame on them" for playing "party politics".

Republicans, who hold supermajorities in both chambers, have been sorting out hundreds of differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill since last week.

"The problem is the resources have been significantly cut", he said, noting that the Senate bill eliminates taxes imposed by Obamacare that provided more revenue for the health care system.

John Kasich declared on Sunday that he opposes the current Senate healthcare reform proposal, saying it's "inadequate" and that it won't protect those who are particularly vulnerable.

First, conservatives have said the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion is unaffordable and unsustainable because it's growing at a runaway pace. Are they going to be served by this bill in the future? He specifically pointed to people who were making a little more than $16,000 per year.

"Dana, I was at a restaurant on Friday, and I was at a Wendy's actually", Kasich said.
