Prez tells Senate GOP: 'I'm ready to act' on Obamacare

GOP health bill still a mystery before planned vote Prez tells Senate GOP: 'I'm ready to act' on Obamacare
Ellis Copeland | 23 July, 2017, 13:09

A Republican repeal on the current us health care system would leave 32 million uninsured by 2026, a new report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said Wednesday.

About 15 million people will lose or choose not to buy insurance in 2018 compared to leaving current law intact, analysts projected.

Some 22 million more people would be uninsured by 2026 under the revised bill than under Obamacare, roughly the same as the original, the CBO found.

If President Trump were still enjoying some kind of "honeymoon" period in the early months of his presidency, his call to arms this week for Republican senators to pass a repeal and sort-of replacement of the Affordable Care Act might build momentum.

The unfavorable report from by the nonpartisan office arrived as Republicans are scrambling to pass any kind of health care legislation, whether by replacing Obamacare entirely or by repealing its key components. They want to make sure there is a replacement plan before repealing the Affordable Care Act. "Inaction is not an option and frankly, I don't think we should leave town unless we have a health insurance plan, unless we can give our people great health care because we are close, we are very close". "But I'm signing it", said President Trump today in a roundtable meeting with Republican senators. "It's beginning to feel like there's a lack of coherency in what we're doing and it's nearly becoming a bidding process, you know spend $50 billion here, let's throw $100 billion there".

After the House passed the AHCA in May, the Senate unveiled its own health care bill, which then failed to get majority support this week. For the time being, it appears as if decisions about health care will continue to be made in the dark.

September 2016: "On my first day, I am going to ask Congress to immediately send me a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare".

That's because it could lead to a bifurcated market, in which sick people gravitate to the more comprehensive plans and healthy people choose the skimpier coverage.

Conservative commentator Erick Erickson says that it's time for the Republican party to chose a new Senate majority leader since Sen. It remains unclear how a planned vote next week might go, or whether it will even happen in the absence of Arizona Senator John McCain, who has been diagnosed with brain cancer. This second version of the plan, however, hit a dead end late Monday, as two more GOP lawmakers came out against it, effectively blocking the legislation from advancing.

The news forced Senate GOP to delay a vote on their healthcare plan, slated for this week, to the next.
