Most states would take a hit from GOP health bill

Potentially two million Tennesseans could be affected by a new plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, which is now being backed by both Governor Bill Haslam and both of the state's USA senators but heavily criticized by some veterans Wednesday.

Republicans have only until September 30 to use a special legislative procedure known as reconciliation to vote on the bill.

Grassley said keeping Republicans' campaign promise to get rid of former President Obama's signature accomplishment was as important as the contents of the most recent health care bill, penned by Sens.

Mr. Johnson is one of the co-sponsors of the Graham-Cassidy plan now moving through the Senate. But it is not clear if Republicans will have enough votes from their own members to pass the legislation.

Kimmel said Cassidy's "scam" of a health care bill does not include any of the things he promised, such us "coverage for all, no discrimination based on pre-existing conditions, lower premiums for middle class families and no lifetime caps". The latest bill eliminates subsidies that have made insurance affordable and funding for the Medicaid expansion that have covered people for the first time in their lives.

At the very least, states could permit insurance companies to charge substantially more for those with pre-existing conditions - i.e.no coverage.

If Congress passes the law, states that expanded Medicaid through the Affordable Care Act largely would lose money, while states that did not would gain more funding.

"This guy, Bill Cassidy, just lied right to my face", Kimmel said.

Mr Cassidy denied Mr Kimmel's characterisation of his bill, saying "what is being circulated is by those that wish to preserve Obamacare, and they're doing everything they can to discredit the alternative". The congressional budget office is still reading it over, line-by-line. And with Sens. John McCain, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski understood to be at various levels of "maybe", Republicans don't have a lot of wiggle room. Vice President Mike Pence said President Trump called him to assure him of the White House's support for the bill. If debate begins on Tuesday, a vote-a-rama is likely or Republicans could use procedural maneuvers to end the process, the report said.

Meanwhile, Martinez's stance on the Graham-Cassidy bill also aligns her - at least for now - with the state's two Democratic U.S. senators, Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich. By 2036, the repeal bill would cost Arizona $133 billion in federal funding that is needed to support those on Medicaid and to provide tax credits to help Arizonans pay for their health care. That's according to one of the leading health care consulting groups.
