22 million fewer Americans insured under Senate GOP bill

The Trump administration has said the Senate plan would end the individual coverage mandate, stabilize insurance markets, and give states flexibility in how they implement the new health care law; all while giving coverage to more people.

Earlier Monday, a conservative Republican senator used unusually harsh terms to accuse party leaders of trying to rush the party's health care bill through the Senate. NPR's Scott Horsley joins us now. Schumer has vowed to help defeat the legislation, which the Congressional Budget Office scored on Monday. "But I think they're going to get there", Trump said of Republican Senate leaders. "Florida didn't expand Medicaid, and Florida is already operating on a waiver", he said. This bill would shrink it. And the forecasters anticipate by 2026 you would have 15 million fewer Americans getting their coverage through that safety net program.

The budget office report said coverage losses would especially affect people between ages 50 and 64, before they qualify for Medicare, and with incomes below 200 percent of poverty level, or around $30,300 for an individual.

International Yoga Day celebrated across the globe ‎

The CBO coverage estimates pose yet another problem for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who unveiled the legislation last Thursday. That could be a particular concern to Nevada Senator Dean Heller, who faces perhaps the toughest 2018 re-election race of any Senate Republican and who has said he can't support a health-care package that cuts Medicaid and takes coverage from "tens of millions of Americans and tens of thousands of Nevadans".

"I'm watching [the developments] but I'm just going to wait and see [before I pass judgment]", odd said.

Before the Senate can begin debate on most legislation, the senators must either unanimously agree to consider it or the majority leader must offer a "motion to proceed" to consideration of that bill. And remember, Ari, that Republicans have very little margin for error here. Republicans, who hold 52 Senate seats, can only lose two votes and still pass the bill. With Collins out he's down to one.

Lee, a far-right conservative, said he attempted to compromise with more moderate Republicans on the rewrite. Plus, Johnson seems particularly riled about McConnell's attempts to "jam this thing through" in a matter of days, as he told radio host Hugh Hewitt.

"The Senate bill is less good policy than the current policy but I understand where they're coming from even if I strongly disagree with it". But that consumer would pay $20,500 for such a plan under the Senate bill. "Our job today is to improve the Affordable Care Act, not destroy it". What does this Congressional Budget Office estimate say about that? Moderate Republicans, such as Collins and Heller, are concerned that the bill would cap Medicaid spending and reduce the number of insured Americans. "But it really does, it does make a difference". "Republican opposition it seems might grow, they fear". It's barely an improvement upon the health care bill that passed the House - which would have resulted in 23 million more uninsured. But they would be big. And this would presumably, in decades to come, push more people off the Medicaid rolls.
