Americans Increasingly Think Their Health Care Will Get Worse

A Small But Vocal Group Of Democrats To Pelosi We're Tired Of Losing We Want A Divorce House gives final OK to its budget; talks with Senate next

The House approved legislation repealing and replacing ObamaCare in April.

Burr sits on several powerful Senate committees that are involved in health care legislation, including the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, the Finance Committee, and the Aging Committee. Even the administration is distancing itself from the House version, which CMS Administrator Seema Verma recently called "outdated".

Trump has said many times that he would repeal Obamacare and replace it with something much better and more affordable. In addition, a third now expect their ability to get and keep health insurance and the quality of their health care to get worse under the pending bill, compared to about one in five that said so in December. At the same time, relatively few say the Senate should adapt the American Health Care Act as passed by the House (8%) or with only minor changes (24%). While the overall approval rating for the ACA has increased since Republicans kicked off their repeal push this year, no political group has shifted its thinking more than independent voters.

About 75 percent of those surveyed say the bill passed by the House doesn't fulfill Trump's promises on health care.

Other painful findings: health care costs would rise for lower-income and sick Americans and many people would end up paying more for benefits such as maternity care, medications and mental health treatment.

Designed and analyzed by public opinion researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation, the poll was conducted from May 16 - 22 among a nationally representative random digit dial telephone sample of 1,205 adults.

Swedish Academy says to receive Bob Dylan Nobel lecture
His songs, his behavior, his persona, his ideas, and stories have been analyzed by the greatest thinkers in music, culture, and literature .

But here's the insane thing: despite the fact that your out-of-pocket costs have likely risen, the total average percentage you are paying for your health care has fallen on about 3 percent. Instead of a personal physician, they will seek care in hospital emergency rooms - the most expensive place to receive health care - and hospital charity care levels will spike, which will ultimately undermine hospitals' financial stability and ripple across to privately insured Iowans.

Congress may need to put plans to fully overhaul the U.S. health care system on the back burner, and instead prioritize a short-term measure to stabilize individual health coverage markets in certain states, U.S. Sen. The CBO estimates that 14 million fewer people will be on the Medicaid rolls by 2026.

This protection, however, is also one of the main reasons why premiums rose under Obamacare.

Both Republican and Democrats did agree that President Donald Trump is not fulfilling his campaign promises with the AHCA.

Most Republicans supported the bill's provisions that would allow states to establish work requirements for Medicaid enrollees and set up high-risk insurance pools for people with health problems.
