GOP health bill a far cry from Trump promises

4 ways the proposed healthcare bill could affect moms

4 ways the proposed healthcare bill could affect moms

About half of respondents think the upper chamber should make either "major" or "minor" changes to it, while 29% say the Senate should not pass the bill.

35 percent of the 1,205 people surveyed between May 16 and 22 felt that the bill fulfilled none of Trump's healthcare promises, while 40 percent said it fulfilled some promises. Treece, who had rheumatoid arthritis, credits Obamacare with making health insurance affordable for her.

"It actually slashes federal funding for AHCCCS [the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System], and that could affect up to 750,000 kids in Arizona", she said.

As they craft a health care bill, senators will have the delicate task of managing what will likely be a tricky relationship with the Trump White House.

Treece, 64, who recently retired as the office manager of a small home improvement business that didn't offer coverage, ticked off the problems with the GOP bill. Iowa, for example, is down to one insurer for most of the state ― and that insurer has warned it may have to pull out. It wouldn't cover annual checkups or preventative tests.

Moderate Republican lawmakers, along with many GOP governors, are anxious that millions of their constituents would lose coverage under the House bill, which eliminates enhanced funding for Medicaid expansion and curtails federal support for the entire program.

Senate Republicans are hoping not to repeat the same experience, but nevertheless face similar obstacles, despite a determination to push forward.

Bacsinszky is obviously the more experience player in these type of matches and has had to work less to get to this point. The last woman representing France to win the country's Grand Slam tournament was Mary Pierce in 2000.

The survey also finds that almost half of Americans say the quality of their health care and their ability to get insurance coverage will stay about the same if the House bill is adopted. The 150,000 Iowans who now benefit from Medicaid expansion will cycle off the program, even though they will likely need coverage again if they lose a job or an employer cuts their hours.

During the same two months, approval of Obamacare among Republicans and Democrats remained mostly divided along party lines.

Roughly 31 percent of respondents said they either had a very favorable or somewhat favorable view of the American Health Care Act, and about 55 percent said they had a very unfavorable or somewhat unfavorable view. Replacing my reliable health care with this subpar alternative is reckless and irresponsible. Additionally, with insurers permitted to charge older Iowans as much as five times what they charge younger individuals - instead of three times or more under ACA - older and sicker Iowans will see their premiums soar.

The bill, which has already passed the House, would leave 23 million more Americans without insurance, according to an official analysis.

As for former President Barack Obama's signature legislation, 49% viewed the Affordable Care Act favorably, while 42% disapproved.
