Governors split on Senate's new health care bill

Governors split on Senate's new health care bill

"I have to worry about people's health crises today and, cutting people today with the promise of money down the road, this is just a huge shift from the federal government to the state government", McAuliffe said.

So while he wouldn't quite criticize the new bill, [Baker] did reiterate his concern that whatever Congress does, it allows the Medicaid waiver that MA negotiated with the federal government remain in place.

The Senate health care bill is "trying to put lipstick on a pig, guess what, it's still a pig", said Montana Gov. Steve Bullock.

"I'm going to say it - there is real evil in the epidemic rate of lying that is going on right now", Murphy tweeted in response to a video of Pence speaking about the bill. No Democrats are supporting the plan.


"What we have is broken", he said. "The new Senate bill made significant progress in a number of areas that we've requested, but there's still a challenge in terms of cost-sharing with the states". "It makes no sense and is literally a death warrant for hundreds of thousands of Americans", Malloy said.

Raimondo and the other governors spoke Friday morning at a news conference organized by the Democratic Governors Association during the summer meeting of the National Governors Association, which is being held in Rhode Island this year and has attracted more than 30 governors to the state.

"This bill, the last bill would really hurt Rhode Islanders". The bill would also allow insurers to charge more for plans for people with pre-existing conditions, and sell plans that don't meet all the coverage mandates under the Affordable Care Act.

About a half-million veterans today are enrolled in the VA's health care program as well as in some other source of coverage, such as Medicaid or Medicare. "I think if you dig deep into it there's not a lot there".

The fight will play out over the run up to the company's annual meeting, which is usually held in October. But that has hurt sales, which have declined over the past three years, and the company's share price.

But a handful of Republican governors opposed making a collective statement, noting there was no broad agreement about the nature of their opposition. Obamacare incentivized states to dramatically expand access to the public health care program with the promise that federal government would foot much of the cost.

"And I'm sure that they're going to come back to me and explain why they feel like those individuals that are receiving Medicaid now, the newly eligibles, won't be harmed", he said.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has appointed former Kentucky State University President Raymond Burse to the University of Louisville board of trustees.

"What we have is broken".

What's ahead for the governors in this meeting?

Vice President Mike Pence and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also are expected to address the gathering on Friday. He's the first foreign leader to address the NGA.

"Governor Raimondo is a tireless advocate for initiatives that support the unique needs of early-stage companies". As vice president, Pence could very well be called upon to cast the tie-breaking vote on this re-write of the health care bill. Numerous meetings will be held at the Rhode Island Convention Center, although some events are scheduled for elsewhere in the city and in Newport.
