Senate Efforts at Health Care Reform
Click on the image
In early May, the House passed the baton to the Senate on the Republicans' repeal and replace efforts. The Senate was almost uniformly disdainful of the House efforts that produced the American Health Care Act ("AHCA") . Even President Trump labelled it a "mean" bill. A small group in the Senate quickly went to work conducting their legislative efforts in secrecy (from fellow Republicans as well as Democrats) and many were holding out hope that the Senate would scrap the AHCA and create meaningful reform. However, the iterations of the Senate health care reform bill eventually released (the latest version of their Better Care Reconciliation Act, or "BCRA", just this week) continue a similar approach as the House bill. The deep cuts to Medicaid remain and the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score of the (first version of the) BCRA predicts 22 million fewer Americans will have coverage in ten years (as compared to the ACA) -- just slightly better than the 23 million under the AHCA.
