Congressman Comer on Voting for American Health Care Act

Coverage would be disrupted for millions nearly immediately, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis of a previous iteration of the legislation. Some don't like its easing of Obama coverage requirements on insurers, and others think its tax credits must be redirected toward lower-income people.

Senator Charles Schumer (D-New York) also voiced his concerns regarding the new health care plan in a statement on Thursday. A Congressional Budget Office analysis of the original House bill estimated that it would leave 24 million more Americans uninsured over a decade. Richard Burr, who previous year said "Obamacare is imploding", will give a nod to whatever repeal Senate Republicans settle on. Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey, who stopped in York to visit a local business Friday afternoon, says he's most concerned about the changes to the pre-existing conditions provisions in the bill.

Stephanopoulos also pressed the speaker to answer critics who asserted that the bill unfairly benefited the wealthy by rolling back the taxes on high income earners that helped fund the Affordable Care Act, the law better known as Obamacare.

Earlier this year, Republicans passed fiscal 2017 legislation that contained Obamacare repeal-and-replace instructions.

President Trump, whose surrogates took to the Sunday political talk shows to express confidence that the Senate would follow the House's lead, tweeted a message urging lawmakers to act. This is the most important feature of the bill for the Senate to fix. The word on the Senate street is that they won't pass the bill - and are instead crafting their own version - but we won't really know until the dust is settled and the votes are officially counted. People living with a host of medical conditions are anxious about the future of their coverage if the Republican plan becomes law.

Democrats are now looking forward to the 2018 midterms in hopes that people will vote out Republicans due to their vote on the AHCA.

"This bill would make it tougher and more expensive for people - including those with pre-existing conditions - to get coverage, harder to access opioid and heroin treatment programs, and raise premiums on older Americans."

House republicans, including our own Rep. Mike Bost, voted Thursday in favor of a grossly inhumane bill that will actually kill US citizens.
