CHART: Who Wins, Who Loses With Senate Health Care Bill

Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate on Thursday unveiled their plan to overhaul President Obama's 2010 health care law.

Republicans hold a 52-seat majority in the Senate, so more than two GOP defections will doom the bill if Democrats are united against it.

Warren's comments came after Senate Republicans released the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017, their version of the House's American Health Care Act to replace Obamacare.

In reviewing the bill, Sullivan, a Republican, said he will look at whether Alaska-specific issues are addressed.

"America can not be strong if she is not healthy".

West Virginians for Affordable Health Care executive director Chantal Fields called the Senate draft "a disaster waiting to happen".

Investors are oblivious to the long-term detriments of the "heartless" Senate health-care bill, according to Mario Molina, former CEO of health-care company Molina.

PEARSON: The protections around preexisting conditions are still in place in the Senate bill, but the waiver authority gives states options that could include limiting coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

"Overall, I believe that we can do better for our state and our country, but I will not vote for a bill that will make things worse for Alaskans", he said in a statement.

South Dakota Sen. John Thune, chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, told the Times: "I think everybody wants to get to 'yes'". But the 3.8 percent tax cut to the wealthy that these bills create would explode the deficit.

The proposal would by 2024 phase out funding for states like Kentucky that elected to expand their Medicaid programs under Obamacare.

He called the Senate's bill "not a health care bill" but a "massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America".

Without the federal money for Medicaid expansion, OH leaders would have to decide whether to pay for the new enrollees' health care coverage with state tax money or end their insurance coverage entirely. Those with private insurance will experience higher premiums and higher deductibles, with lower tax credits for working families, even though their plans might not cover pregnancy, mental health care or even expensive prescriptions, he warned.

During an appearance on MSNBC's MTP Daily, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) explained that she just couldn't support a bill that would end up leaving more Americans without health coverage.

The non-partisan Congressional budget office is expected to send Congress its score showing how much the plan will cost on Monday.

While President Trump and Senate GOP leaders debate about how many mandates and giveaways they will put in the new legislation, Sens.

A full repeal would mean eliminating health insurance subsidies and letting the health insurance market adjust its prices or face the devastating loss of millions of customers.
