Health Care/Medicaid – Bills To Repeal ACA and Cut Medicaid Being Analyzed

Late last week, a draft bill believed to be under consideration for the House Republican approach to restructuring Medicaid and repealing the Affordable Care Act was “leaked”. It is believed that the draft bill and perhaps other draft bills have been sent to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to obtain cost estimates (known as “scoring”) expected to assist the House Energy and Commerce Committee in preparing legislation for possible mark-up during the week of March 6. It is, of course, unknown until the Committee releases its own bill what the actual legislation will try to achieve. However, given the elements of the leaked version and the proposals that have been discussed to date, it is likely to involve repeal of key parts of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and drastic cuts to Medicaid through permanent restructuring of the federal/state partnership relationship. Therefore, continued advocacy is more urgent than ever. See action alert: TAKE ACTION TO PREVENT GUTTING OF THE ACA AND MEDICAID.

  1. This is very disheartening to read that a site whom claims to want the best for Children with disabilities can have a driven agenda airing on the side of the democratic party and fail to provide the link as a read for yourself @ As you well know that the ACA will die on its own weight. Then who will you cry to? I can tell you as a grandmother of a child with a disability, who cares for this child full time the ACA does nothing to help us nor do the schools, or doctors. Children with disables are not better off for Obamacare so let be honest about that. You have the greatest opportunity right now to get to the table with a man who actually cares about the American people. Start there with HOPE.
