Senate Trumpcare bill ‘goes further’ than House counterpart in cutting Medicaid spending: report

Published

on

A “discussion draft” of the secret Senate Republicans’ bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, cuts Medicaid worse than the bill that passed the House of Representatives.

The Washington Post reports that the “Senate bill would go farther than the House version in its approach to cutting Medicaid spending.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will present the bill, written behind closed doors, to the Republican Senate Conference at 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

The Washington Post also reports the bill will, “roll back the ACA’s taxes, phase down its Medicaid expansion, rejigger its subsidies, give states wider latitude in opting out of its regulations and eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood.”

If Democrats remain united against Trumpcare, Majority Leader McConnell will be unable to pass the bill if more than two Republicans defect.

The official analysis from the Congressional Budget Office is expected to be released on Friday or Monday.

Here’s what people are saying about the draft bill being leaked:
