Senate leaders await analysis of GOP health bill

Senate Republicans are holding closed-door meetings in an effort to write their own legislation. The previous version of the bill reduced shortfalls by $150 billion.

CBO said states adopting those waivers could destabilize coverage for people with medical problems.

The report said the House bill - named the American Health Care Act - would reduce federal deficits by $119 billion over the next decade.

On Wednesday, House members reaffirmed their opposition to use of state funds for voucher or "school choice" programs such as savings accounts and tax-credit scholarships.

Wednesday's report will be the first time the budget office has gauged the impact of eleventh-hour changes House Republicans made to gain enough votes to pass the bill.

That compares with 28 million under age 65 who would lack insurance that year under the current health law signed by President Barack Obama. Senate spokeswoman Jacque Bland said last week Maroney, a radiologist, was absent to see patients.

The Texas House of Representatives earlier this month passed a measure to allow adoption agencies discriminate against LGBT people.

The bill still contains nearly $1 trillion in tax cuts, mainly for the wealthy. The Senate Finance Committee, which now has control of the main budget bill, has hearings scheduled for Friday and Saturday.

House allies of Speaker Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, portrayed the Senate's changes as short-sighted and threatening to many school districts' financial health. After passing the Senate bill, the two chambers of Congress would have to merge the bill in conference later this fall. The report says that is partly because insurance on average would cover less of people's health care costs.

Trump has suggested the IRS won't enforce penalties against people who don't buy coverage, as Obama's individual mandate requires.

For ill people in those states, "it would become more difficult" for seriously ill people to buy insurance "because their premiums would continue to increase rapidly", the report said. Those bills are awaiting consideration by a House committee.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced today that he has appointed Steve Ready of Norton Healthcare in Louisville to serve on the Health Information Technology Advisory Committee which is within the executive branch and established by the 21st Century Cures Act. The Kentucky Republican calls that statute "unsustainable".

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York, left, accompanied by Sen.

"We can expect today's CBO analysis will likely show numerous same grave consequences", he said. It allows people who can not produce an authorized photo ID to show other documentation such as a utility bill or bank statement and sign an affidavit stating that they had a reasonable impediment in presenting an authorized ID.

Both parties are bracing for the release of a report by the Congressional Budget Office on the GOP's House-passed health care bill.

The new estimates could give talking points to House Republicans, or to Democrats, who voted unanimously against that bill. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., said of the report by lawmakers' nonpartisan fiscal experts.
