GOP May Cap Insurance Tax Break as ACA Repeal Bill Nears

Republicans, who now hold the majority in the House and Senate as well as the presidency, are in the process of repeal and replace.

- 79,407 people enrolled in plans through the ME health insurance exchange for 2017, down about 5.5 percent from 2016 enrollment numbers.

Workplace Health Benefits: Kevin Brady (R-Texas), the powerful chairman of the tax writing committee in the U.S. House of Representatives, wants to tax part of the cost of workplace health benefits by including the cost in working people's taxable income.

"I hear things that are unacceptable to me", Paul told the website. But if they repeal the ACA mandate on pre-existing conditions and my cancer returns in the future, that could bankrupt my family.

Trump has been edging away from the promise to quickly eliminate the entire law. "And full repeal means not taking the taxes" from people.

House GOP leaders also sent rank-and-file Republicans a 15-slide Powerpoint presentation highlighting what they called Obamacare's failures, as well as Republicans' broad goals in replacing it. We can help them, and ourselves, by keeping up the pressure on members of Congress, Republicans and Democrats, to fix the ACA, not kill it.

- ACA Signups, which tracks enrollment, estimates 57,000 Mainers would likely lose coverage if the ACA is repealed and the replacement isn't as comprehensive. "There's the sentiment that they want to do it, but the question is, is there a plan formulated to do it?" "Lots of people would go bankrupt at $20,000", particularly if they don't have the resources to fund the HSA with their own savings. "He's not going to do that". They are lobbying Republican legislators in states hard hit by the epidemic.

Harvard Health Economics Professor Richard Frank said Kentucky's Medicaid expansion under the ACA has helped many addicts get help they otherwise wouldn't have received. And others have warned they will follow suit.

Information about choosing a doctor, premium increases and consumer rights to appeal health plan cancellations have also been deleted.

Republican plans to reform the USA healthcare system will lead to a huge redistribution of funds from poor to rich Americans and could see millions of low-income people lose their health insurance, it has been claimed.
