FY 2018 Budget Resolution and Health Care

Talking Points

The 2018 Senate budget resolution released today would let the Senate repeal most of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and/or adopt additional deep cuts to Medicaid with just 50 votes, while at the same time cutting taxes by $1.5 trillion or more for high-income households and corporations.

Rushed Senate Consideration of Cassidy-Graham Would Be Designed to Hide Bills Severe Flaws


Congressional Republicans are making a last-ditch effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) through their latest plan, from Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham, and reportedly are close to securing the votes of 50 senators needed to push the bill through the Senate before fast-track reconciliation instructions expire on September 30. Such a strategy would violate the principles of �regular order� even more egregiously than the non-transparent, partisan process under which Congress has considered previous repeal bills. It would amount to passing a poorly understood bill through the Senate within two weeks without comprehensive hearings, floor debate, or input from constituents � and without a full Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis of the bill�s impact on coverage, on Medicaid, on access for people with pre-existing conditions, on premiums and out-of-pocket costs for people with individual-market coverage, and on the stability of the individual market. House members would then vote on the bill with no opportunity for changes.

Like Other ACA Repeal Bills, Cassidy-Graham Plan Would Add Millions to Uninsured, Destabilize Individual Market

In releasing a revised version of their legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham, along with co-sponsors Dean Heller and Ron Johnson, claimed that their bill isn�t a �partisan� approach and doesn�t include �draconian cuts.� In reality, however, the Cassidy-Graham bill would have the same harmful consequences as those prior bills. It would cause many millions of people to lose coverage, radically restructure and deeply cut Medicaid, eliminate or weaken protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and increase out-of-pocket costs for individual market consumers.



New Graham-Cassidy Bill: A Last GOP Shot At ACA Repeal And Replace Through Reconciliation

On September 13, 2017, senators from opposing parties introduced two bills in the Senate embodying radically different approaches to health care reform. This post will analyze the non-Medicaid provisions of a block-grant bill introduced by Republican senators Lindsay Graham (SC), Bill Cassidy (LA), Ron Johnson (WI), and Dean Heller (NV) late morning. A later post will describe the single-payer bill introduced by independent senator Bernie Sanders (VT) and sixteen Democratic co-sponsors mid-afternoon, while a third post will address the Medicaid provisions of Graham-Cassidy.
