US House Votes To Repeal, Replace Affordable Care Act


THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES VOTED ON THURSDAY TO REPEAL AND REPLACE THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT.

IT'S UNCLEAR HOW MUCH THE PLAN MIGHT COST, OR WHAT KIND OF COVERAGE AMERICANS MIGHT EXPECT.
NOW THE BILL GOES TO THE SENATE FOR another fight.
The bill PASSED WITHOUT A SINGLE DEMOCRATIC VOTE.
THE VOTE CAME AFTER WEEKS OF NEGOTIATIONS and AMENDMENTS
THE HOUSE BILL WOULD ROLL BACK MEDICAID EXPANSION AND DECREASE SUBSIDIES FOR LOW INCOME FAMILIES- MEANING HIGHER COSTS.
FOR MIDDLE INCOME FAMILIES: HIGHER SUBSIDIES, LOWER COSTS.
THE BILL WOULD ALSO KEEP COVERAGE FOR PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS
BUT IF STATES OPT OUT, COSTS COULD RISE.

CONGRESSMAN DON YOUNG WAS NOT AVAILABLE FOR AN INTERVIEW, BUT HIS SPOKESMAN ISSUED A STATEMENT ON HIS BEHALF.
