Obama: 'America Is Stronger Because Of The Affordable Care Act'

Cheney plans to vote in favor of replacing health care law

UPDATE (4:39 P.M. 3/23/17): House Republican leaders abruptly canceled a planned vote on the GOP health care bill Thursday afternoon as they struggled to find sufficient support to pass it.

Some members of Congress wish to make major changes to our core health system - including repealing the Affordable Care Act and making damaging changes to Medicaid, FAMIS and Medicare.

In order to keep our families safe and our economy and communities healthy we must have quality, affordable health care!

Cuomo also said the Republican plan to repeal the ACA would cost the state 6.9 billion dollars and result in loss of coverage for 2.7 million New Yorkers.

That's because the more their plans cost, the more taxpayers shell out to assist in paying the premiums, the Congressional Budget Office said in a new analysis this month.

Republicans plan to strip health care from the needy, while providing tax breaks to the wealthy.

The U.S. government has made a mess of health care because it wants to force some people to pay for other people's insurance. To translate that into non-Washington speak, the group will downgrade its rating of any lawmaker who votes for the GOP plan.

Mr. Rothfus has been a consistent opponent of the Affordable Care Act, calling it unworkable. As the argument goes, Americans shouldn't have to pay for benefits they aren't using; a 60-year-old-man, for example, shouldn't have to pay for maternity care. They didn't vote for Republicans then and they won't now, so what does it matter? He issued his remarks on the seventh anniversary of his signing the law and ahead of a vote on a Republican bill in the House of Representatives that would drastically alter the Obamacare as we know it.

Importantly, the AHCA maintains a firewall between the new tax credits and the existing employer sponsored insurance, which over 177 million individuals rely for highly valued coverage. House Speaker Paul Ryan became a prisoner of the GOP Freedom Caucus, which wanted to end basic coverages, and to include a terrible, unconstitutional New York-specific amendment that would have cost the state $2.3 billion in Medicaid funding. "It also cares for many people that are disabled".
