Nurses call for funding boost for aged care: ‘Medicaid will not pay for this’
The House of Representatives has voted on a $12.4 billion bill that gives states an extra $6 billion to spend on Medicaid and pays for the expansion of coverage for children, adults and disabled adults.
Democrats voted along party lines to include millions of people whose insurance would have been cut or canceled into the tax cuts, giving Republicans a two-thirds supermajority in the Senate.
The House bill also removes protections for those with pre-existing conditions and provides deep financial cuts for state budgets that would cripple programs for the poor.
The House’s repeal of the Affordable Care Act would result in 10 million fewer Americans owning health insurance, according to a Center on Budget and Policy Priorities analysis, and 30 million fewer people gaining health coverage because they lost their jobs because of Obamacare.

“The House will never pass these things and the people of Oregon will never hear from us,” he added.
The House GOP bill is backed by conservative groups such as the American Ac예스카지노tion Forum and the Heritage Foundation, while some Democrats opposed the bill because of concern it would allow states to opt out of providing health insurance coverage for people with pre-existing conditions and to make changes to Medicaid, or Medica더킹카지노id for the poor.
“There is a huge partisan divide over this…. It’s just not going to work. There is an appetite for bipartisan action that’s just not there,” House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat, said on Tuesday.
A spokeswoman for President Donald Trump’s administration did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the health bill.
The health bill repeals the individual mandate, which requires Americans to have health insurance or pay a penalty. Republicans say repealing this mandate wil
