It's Not Clear How Many People Could Actually Work To Get Medicaid

Thursday the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on a new health care bill supported by President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Before the delay was announced, House Democratic Leader and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi ribbed Republicans efforts to shore up support for the American Health Care Act. But we should start from the baseline that any changes will make our health care system better, not worse for hardworking Americans.

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%).

Cuomo also said the Republican plan to repeal the ACA would cost the state 6.9 billion dollars and result in loss of coverage for 2.7 million New Yorkers.

"Care and treatment for mental illness is not cheap - if I was having to pay everything completely out of pocket, I don't think I'd be able to afford it". However, most Republican voters still favor a repeal.

The AMA said it is willing to work with Congress on proposals that will boost the number of Americans with quality, affordable health insurance coverage. However, as of Thursday afternoon, both the future of the bill and the time lawmakers would formally vote on it remained unclear.

He also touted the law's accomplishments: "Thanks to this law, more than twenty million Americans have gained the security and peace of mind of health insurance".

Two time cancer patient Barbara Main says the new plan will force people like her to pay more for health services and medications they desperately need. Instead of the federal government paying for about 50 percent of states' Medicaid expenses, as it now does, states will be given a fixed amount of funding to spend on health care and insurance as they see fit.
