Events Unfolding Fast In D.C.

The ACA repeal with the Medicaid cuts is very fluid with many nuances, rules and details.

  • On July 25 the Senate voted narrowly to begin debate on a bill to repeal major provisions of the Affordable Care Act, but hours later, the Republican plan to replace President Barack Obama’s health law fell short of the votes it needed.
  • The Senate is expected to continue to attempt to pass some form of an ACA repeal and send it to a House/Senate Conference Committee.  It is unclear if they will be able to pass something that meets all the rules and if there will be any Democrats on the Conference Committee.
  • NYS House Republicans continue to be key to fending off massive Medicaid cuts.
  • Below is a link to a letter that CP of NYS has signed on to the NYS Congressional Delegation encouraging them to vote no on cuts.

Or, they could vote on another bill that would repeal Obamacare without replacing it and strip millions of their access to healthcare. Or, they could vote on some other, entirely different bill.
