Summary: ” The American Public Health Association attacked the closed-door negotiations by the Senate Republicans as “legislative malpractice.” Sen. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed the Senate Republicans’ bill as “every bit as bad” as the American Health Care Act passed in the House. “The Senate proposal represents a significant move in the incorrect direction, resulting in fewer people having have access to to insurance, fewer patient protections and less coverage, for absolutely essential behavioral health care,” American Psychiatric Association’s CEO and Medical Director Saul Levin said in a statement. The Senate bill might be meaner.” He continued, “The Senate Republican health care bill is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, only this wolf has even sharper teeth than the House bill.” During her weekly press conference, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said it’s important to desist the Republican legislation that she called “a tax bill disguised as a health care bill.” So far, the Senate health care bill hasn’t gotten any backing from top health, and medical organizations. As the bill was being unveiled, a large protest against gathered outside of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office, with people in wheelchairs staging a “die-in,”, and protesters chanting that no changes be made to Medicaid. It is reckless, for legislation that’ll have such an immense impact on Americans’ lives, and the economy to continue ahead without opportunity for public hearings, or any external commentary.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has indicated he wants to have access to a vote prior to the July 4 recess. It added, “There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current health care system, but it doesn’t appear this draft as written will accomplish the almost all important promise that we made to Americans: to repeal Obamacare, and lower their health care costs.” It’s very complicated,” Sen. And that’s a really good thing,” said Sen. ABC News’ John Parkinson, Mariam Khan and MaryAlice Parks contributed to this story. There’s already a ban against using federal funds, for abortions, accordingly there is absolutely no need for that.” The bill’s release was held a meeting with significant opposition from Democrats, and other supporters of the Affordable Care Act. Four Republican senators have already come out in opposition to the Senate GOP’s Better Care Reconciliation Act, jeopardizing the bill’s passage. The American Public Health Association, the American Psychiatric Association, and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology each and every released statements urging the Senate to reject the “Better Care Reconciliation Act” and expressed concerns over with the closed-door negotiation process. But Sen. Senate Republican leaders unveiled what they called a “discussion draft” of their long-awaited health care bill, a part of the party’s ongoing efforts to repeal, and replace the Affordable Care Act.”
