Senators get pressure on Obamacare replacement effort from seniors and doctors
Then, we are right back where we were when it became necessary to create the Affordable Care Act.
The House approved the GOP's ACA replacement plan, known as the American Health Care Act, May 4.
Health care advocates say the elimination of the so-called "premium tax credits" would make medical coverage for low- and moderate-income individuals more expensive.
More than half of the participants said they had preexisting conditions, and the ones living in Medicaid expansion states were more likely to have a regular source of care for their chronic condition, with fewer delays in care and less trouble paying medical bills. The American Health Care Act will stabilize our health-care system, ensuring our community has access to high quality, affordable health care.
AARP contends that under the House bill, insurance providers could jack up rates on older Americans five times or more for their coverage.

Republicans say repealing former President Barack Obama's signature health care law will lower premiums and deductibles and give consumers more control over their health care.
"I couldn't support the House bill, because I didn't believe it provided adequate coverage for people who are now being helped by expanded Medicaid", Sen. No limits on what insurance companies can charge.
Additionally, KFF estimates 3.8 million adults with individual market insurance in 2015, or 25 percent of all adult enrollees, had a declinable pre-existing condition and would not face premium surcharges under the AHCA community rating waivers if they maintain continuous coverage.
