Schumer Calls Cruz Health Care Bill Amendment A 'Hoax'

"The draft healthcare legislation preserves access to care for people with pre-existing conditions, strengthens Medicaid and does not change Medicare, gives people more health insurance choices, and allows people to stay on their family health insurance plan until they are 26", Sen.

The proposed amendment would allow insurers to offer plans on state exchanges that are non-compliant with ACA standards as long as they also offer plans that follow those standards. Some conservatives, including Cruz, have backed repealing ObamaCare now, with a delayed "off ramp" and replacing it separately.

A version of the legislation, the Better Care Reconciliation Act, that included the Cruz amendment was reportedly sent to the Congressional Budget Office over the recess for an analysis for its impact. Under Cruz and Lee, premium payments from these younger, healthier policy holders - who usually need less medical care - will help offset the cost of covering frillier ACA plans.

Cruz spent the latter third of the session tip-toeing around answering that question, talking at length instead about why Obamacare needs to be repealed in the first place and why he thinks more left-leaning ideas won't work.

Sen. Ted Cruz talks with Dan Caldwell, with Concerned Veterans for America at Sheraton Houston Brook Hollow on Saturday, July 8, 2017. The comments came the same day that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., leaned further into a very different kind of backup plan: Working with Democrats on a more modest bill to stabilize insurance markets. "People are hurting under it".

Back inside, retired engineer and Navy veteran, Bill Kelberlau, said he agreed with what he heard from the Senator.

"They don't want to fix it, they just want to give tax cuts to the wealthy", said Paula Oddo, a retired teacher who was among protesters withstanding the blazing midday sun.

Not every Republican senator remains convinced by the Cruz amendment. Sen.

"If we can not bring the conference together and agree on repeal legislation, then I think President Trump's absolutely right that we should pass a clean repeal", Mr. Cruz told reporters in Austin, Texas, according to the Washington Post. Inside, the discussion was much cooler, but tensions mounted when the topic turned to health care.

Moderate Republicans might balk if the plan as rising costs for people with preexisting conditions, however especially if the CBO comes back with an ugly score.

Supporters of the Cruz amendment argue that the so-called "stabilization funds" and federal subsidies would help ensure that premiums don't spike for individuals who are seriously ill. He said while many veterans like the care they get at the VA, others want and deserve choice.

Sen. (R-Maine), who is considering a run for governor in 2018, is seen as a certain no because she has made clear to GOP leaders that she will not vote for legislation that includes language defunding Planned Parenthood, according to a Republican source familiar with the talks. Mr. Meadows previously indicated that his conservative caucus did not think the Senate's bill did enough to eliminate ACA regulations.
