Employees don't believe ACA repeal will affect them

How Republicans Can Save Their Health Care Plan — and the Nation’s Health

Protesters block a street during a protest against the Republican bill in the U.S. Senate to replace President Barack Obama's health care law Tuesday, June 27, 2017, in Salt Lake City.

"Our rural counties already face unique health care challenges from attracting top talent, to delivering care to far-flung populations, to fighting the opioid epidemic", Brown said.

Like the prior versions, the most recent bill undermines core provisions of the landmark Affordable Care Act ( ACA ). Nearly as if taking their que from the GOP, broadcast and cable news outlets made little effort over the same time period to invite diverse guests to discuss the health care bill despite dedicating significant coverage to the issue.

"Not much is new in the latest Trumpcare bill". The available responses were "Repeal and Replace", "Work with Democratic to improve the ACA", and "not sure". The ACA's public health and prevention fund, established to expand investments in the nation's public health infrastructure, would also be repealed. Living in a civilized society means we take care of our people and the country in which we live. While most people (66 percent) say that they have not changed their views in the past month, a quarter (24%) say their views have become negative, three times the share (7%) who say their views have become more positive. "We don't know yet, but we have to think about it".

Game of Thrones' Absence Totally Blew Up the Emmys
And it's been wonderful to see the first three shows that were announced as nominees for best comedy all starred people of color. Ty Burrell, a two-time victor in the supporting actor category, is also nominated - the only cast member to be named this year.

An overwhelming majority of voters want congressional Republicans to work with Democrats on fixing the Affordable Care Act, according to a poll released Wednesday. Communities of color are disproportionately likely to receive Medicaid and restrictions could leave millions of people in disadvantaged communities at a loss.

Mr. Paul is particularly angered by a parts of the bill that would enshrine taxpayer assistance for people who buy insurance on their own and offer "stabilization" funds for insurers who could see losses during the transition to a GOP model.

This puts Trump and congressional Republicans in a hard position, as repealing the ACA has been the marquee issue of the party's campaigns since the law's passage in 2010. That is why it is more important than ever for news outlets to contextualize this human cost.
