56% of Americans Prefer Obamacare to the New GOP Health Care Plan
The news that Arizona Sen. John McCain will not support the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act has made it incredibly unlikely that the bill will pass — and the majority of Americans may feel relief, according to a new poll. A recent Washington Post/ABC News poll finds that 56% of Americans prefer the Affordable Care Act to the Graham-Cassidy Bill. Just 33% of those surveyed prefer the GOP’s hasty proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare. According to the Post, pollsters told voters that the bill, proposed by Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, would eliminate ...

How the Graham-Cassidy Proposal Would Hurt Communities of Color
The repeated efforts by Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) can feel endless — legislators keep reviving our deepest fears about how to keep our loved ones and ourselves healthy. Even though repeal was defeated in the Senate just a few months ago, there is a new bill that is as bad as, if not worse than, the previous version. Key Senators are ramming the legislation — known as Graham-Cassidy — through the chamber at warp speed. As two people who worked to make Obamacare a reality, we don’t like what we see. There will be devastating consequences for tens of millions of Americans &mdash...

The Republican Health Bill Is Targeting Votes From These Two States
(WASHINGTON) — Provisions shoehorned into the Republican health care bill dangle extra money for Alaska and Wisconsin, home states of one GOP senator whose vote party leaders desperately need and another who co-sponsored the legislation, according to analysts who’ve studied the legislation. The 140-page measure, which top Republicans hope to push through the Senate next week, is stuffed with language making some states winners and others losers. Aides say the legislation is still changing as leaders hunt the 50 GOP “yes” votes they’ll need to turn this summer’s jarring Senate rejection o...

Republicans Have a Bill to Repeal Obamacare. They Don ’t Know Exactly What It Will Do
Senate Republicans have just days to pass a bill that would repeal major chunks of the Affordable Care Act, scale back federal spending on health care and dramatically change health insurance in the United States. But they don’t know exactly how it will work. Named for cosponsors Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy, the Graham-Cassidy bill will not be scored by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office before the Senate faces an end-of-month deadline to pass it by a simple majority. While the broad outlines of the bill are known, that means senators will have to make a decision to vote for or against the bill wit...

In conclusion, each of us can make a difference, and I know I’m preaching to the choir here because otherwise you wouldn’t be a goalkeeper. But many of you are young and maybe have only seen forward momentum and may not have seen backward momentum yet. Many of you may confront hurdles and roadblocks and disappointments in the future. And when that happens, that’s the test. The test is not how you feel when things are going good or when you are at a cool conference in New York with Bill and Melinda Gates, and Will I Am.

3 Ways the New Obamacare Repeal Bill Would Change Women ’s Access to Health Care
Republicans latest attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also called Obamacare, includes several provisions that would dramatically affect women’s health care. Named for sponsors Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy, the Graham-Cassidy bill would make it harder for low-income women to access Planned Parenthood, reduce private insurance coverage for abortions and allow states to reduce maternity coverage. The bill needs to pass by the end of September to have a realistic chance of being enacted into law. It’s currently just a handful of votes away from reaching the majority needed.

The bill in question, Graham-Cassidy, named for its co-sponsors Sen. Lindsey Graham and Rep.
