Trump promises unfulfilled by House GOP health bill

For starters, just 8 percent support the Senate passing the House bill "as is", including just 15 percent of Republicans.

And 58% of those surveyed said they were less likely to support the bill due to the Congressional Budget Office's estimate that costs would increase for older people and decrease for younger Americans.

A 55 percent majority of Americans view the Republican-backed American Health Care Act negatively, the same proportion who want the Senate to make major changes to the legislation or reject it, the survey finds. Forty-nine percent had a favorable view of the ACA, compared to 31 percent who had a favorable view of the Republican AHCA. It also found the legislation would lower premiums considerably in some places, but with the trade-off of making health coverage more expensive for older consumers and those with pre-existing conditions.

President Trump, who celebrated House passage of the American Health Care Act, seemed fine with its provisions, even though he broke at least two of his promises about health care - that there would be no cuts to Medicaid and that an Obamacare replacement would cover everyone.

Indeed, the biggest problem with the Republican bill - by far - is that it fails people who can't afford health insurance, regardless of their pre-existing health status.

Now, larger shares fear the cost of health care for themselves or their families (45 percent), they're ability to acquire and keep coverage (34 percent) and the quality of that coverage (34 percent) would get worse under the GOP plan to scrap the law.

Garrett was quick to point out that Carroll improving himself after the incident would be the most important piece from the event. The arrest could violate the team's personal conduct policy and he could receive a fine or suspension, according to the outlet.

Twenty-nine percent said the Senate should not pass the GOP bill, while 26 percent wanted major changes, and 24 percent called for minor changes.

The bottom line is that some 200,000 Iowans lose their health care coverage under AHCA, but not their need for health care services.

A nonpartisan analysis of the House-passed Republican bill said the potential consequences could be severe. Thirteen percent said they didn't know or refused to respond. States that choose to waive this requirement must set up high-risk pools that allow such patients to get funding for their healthcare; the bill provides $138 billion to fund these high-risk pools.

Republicans say the status quo is unacceptable, however, so they have no choice but to usher in market-oriented reforms.

The AHCA is expected to cut revenues by $992 billion and direct spending by ~$1.1 trillion, resulting in a net reduction of $119 billion in the federal deficit during a ten-year period from 2017-2026. They would also depend on what approaches individual states take among various options they'd have.

The latest Kaiser Family Foundation poll confirms that most Americans really do not like the GOP's American Health Care Act. First, it rolls back the Medicaid expansion provided by Obamacare, freezing the expanded Medicaid program by the year 2020. The bill undermines protections that stop insurance companies from denying coverage or charging outrageous premiums for people with conditions including heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
