Trump Scott Brown helped vote on health care
The House and the Senate approved their respective versions of a bill weeks ago and now the
Republicans say they have reached a preliminary agreement between the two houses. They hope to hand over the bill before Christmas
But Democrats drew a resemblance to 2010, when then called US President Barack Obama to delay his health reform bill until newly elected Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown could sit and vote on him.
Republicans are now running on Democrats in the Senate. The loss of sitting senator from Alabama - Luther Strange - would reduce this range to one and jeopardize the tax cut package.
And have a new voice that can add to their abstinence: former businessman Donald Trump told CNN in 2010 that Obama was "very smart", to sit Brown before the final votes on the health bill.
Found to talk with CNN Campbell Brown in 2010, Trump that Obama "retired" at the request of a health care vote after Brown's surprising Democrat Martha Cookley in a Massachusetts special election on January 19, 2010. Specifically in that period
"He said: Now, you know, we have to give Massachusetts its voice, which is a very clever thing for him to say," said Trump CNN at the time. "But that could kill his health plan, boy, he spent a year and all his capital on this situation that many do not want."
We urge Mitch McConnell to suspend his tax laws and not to make a final vote until Doug Jones is sworn in before the Senate. "Doug Jones becomes the Alabama's duly elected senator who has not been appointed by the governor.
A White House official told CNN that Brown's example was different.
Democrats passed the 2009 Affordable Care Act by 60 votes. After that, the Senate issued a non-affordable health care act 2010 - Brown's choice - by 50 percent when Democrats had more than 50 seats in the Senate.
The official said the vote was based on Jones being different, because his vote could give a vote to the tax measure because of a small margin of Senate Republicans.
Democrats have hit this argument.
"The White House just admitted that Donald Trump is running his back on the Alabama people and Trump himself praised President Obama for his honor: if voters heard the state, Washington was respected," said Andrew Bates, spokesman for the American Super Pak Back on Thursday.
Senator Chris van Hollen, D-Maryland, Schumer repeated: "We should be willing to make some noise when McConnell Jones does not sit before voting on the Alabamier tax reform deserves to be done ..."
However, there is no indication that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to postpone the vote.
Jones told reporters on Wednesday that Trump called Jones on Wednesday to congratulate him on his victory and invite him to the White House upon his arrival in Washington.
This story has been updated with additional details on healthy voices in 2009 and 2010.
Under current law, state Medicaid programs are federal funds guaranteed for eligible spending. The bill sets the limits of government funding for state health care programs from 2020 onwards. Specifically, the bill sets the target spending limits for each state, based on a formula based on federal health care expenditure for 2016 in each category of participants: (1) the elderly, (2) the blind and the disabled, (3) children, (4) adults recently approved by the Social Security Authority (MICAID), and (5) all other registered persons. For a country that exceeds the target expenditure ceiling in a given fiscal year, the bill provides for a reduction in federal funds in the following fiscal year. In addition, the bill requires: (i) the preparation of additional reports and the review of status data on medical assistance expenditures; and (ii) a temporary increase in the Finance Management Program for some data reporting expenditures.
The bill reduces targeted spending for some countries that require political collapse to provide funding for medical assistance. In particular, the bill applies to countries that have received MOH allocations for fiscal year 2016, which are more than six times the national average. Specific contributions are excluded.
The State Medicaid program may choose federal funding in the form of collective grants for a period of 10 years beginning as soon as possible in 2020. The draft law provides a formula for determining the amount of collective grants with the upper spending limits. (B) the nature of the services to be covered, the extent, the duration and the extent of the services to be covered; and (iii) the delivery and cost-sharing procedures for the covered services. This plan should include: (i) the provision of eligibility for certain children and pregnant women; and (ii) assistance in hospital care, surgical care, medical care, prenatal care, prenatal care, prescribed medicines, prosthetic devices, other medical materials and childcare.
Subtitle D - Stability of the market in helping patients and health insurance
(Article 131) After 2019, the cost-sharing reduction will be abolished for low-income persons with health insurance specified in the bill.
(Section 132) The Act makes a silent change to the establishment and funds of funds for the State Fund and State Security. The Fund is managed by the Centers for Health Care and Medical Services (CMS) and represents up to 2026 states available funds, among others: for people to provide financial support at risk so that they can engage in health insurance and agreements with institutions and stabilize individual health insurance premiums, Promote participation and increase opportunities in the health insurance market, pay providers and provide financial support to newcomers to reduce expenses.
Funding will be allocated to the states on the basis of the share of individual states in the damage suffered and uninsured persons under the poverty line. In order to obtain funding after 2019, countries should provide appropriate funding at a rate of between 7% and 50%, depending on the year, and whether the State has requested funds.
The bill provides for an increase of $ 15 billion in funds for maternity protection, newborn care and services for people with mental disorders or substance abuse disorders by 2020.
The bill states that the federal Invisible Involvement Program, which is managed by CMS, has paid health insurance companies for claims by some people in order to reduce bonuses in the markets involved. The bill provides $ 15 billion for this fund for the period 2019-2026.
(§ 133) Health insurance companies must increase the premiums of individuals registered in the individual market, which had insurance coverage for more than 62 days in the previous year, by 30% for one year. States that have programs under this project provides financial support to people at risk or to stabilize health insurance premiums in relevant markets and an invisible risk sharing program Federal participation States may apply for exemption from health insurance companies for individuals with outages providing coverage for premiums based on the health
Republicans in the Senate approved a health vote this week, but it is unclear whether they have votes to partially lift and replace Obamacar as they have promised over the past seven years. Not only that - it is unclear what will be included in the final bill of the bill, whether they will get 50 votes to open the debate formally on the issue. Voting is due on Tuesday.
Assuming that the Democrats do not agree with this law (a presumption that Obamacare is trying to detect), and with the return of Senator McCain (R-Arizona) to Washington, Senate leaders can only carry two votes from Republicans to lose to open the debate. So far a member of the Senate (Susan Collins of Maie) said she would choose "no", while other key senators (Rob Portman of Ohio, Dean Heller of Nevada and Shelley Moore of Capitol Hill of West Virginia) They will vote the debate begin. Many others spoke against the latest version of the legislation. Below is a summary of what went wrong.
Proposal for amendment
The abbreviated short-term plan was far less than Republican had once thought. Republican leaders, unable to overcome the grievances of Conservative and moderate conservatives, said the structured plan was only a way to allow negotiations with the House of Representatives, which passed a more ambitious bill to be repealed in early May.
The so-called "thin" bill abolished, as became known this week at the Capitol, will have wide-ranging effects on health care. The bill would increase the number of uninsured by 15 million next year compared to the current law, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The tax office said the premiums of the self-insurance companies would increase by about 20 percent.
But President Trump brought to this point, he also put the Republicans under pressure.
