Though more than a quarter of people surveyed after the election want to see the Affordable Care Act repealed or sharply scaled back, 30% want to see the law expanded and 19% want the law to remain as is, according to a report released Thursday.
Price chairs the Task Force on Health Care Reform, a group that has played a central role in crafting the Republican replacement to the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare.
According to the data, collected by the Kaiser Family Foundation, 69 percent of Republicans supported repealing President Obama's signature health care law in October; a month later, only about half supported a full repeal. About two-thirds of those surveyed supporting repeal want President-elect Donald Trump and the next Congress to repeal the healthcare law and replace it with a Republican-sponsored alternative.
Price also backs, as does Trump, a plan by House Republicans to sharply cut the Medicaid health program for the poor and disabled and turn it over to the states to run.
Butler, Wade lead Bulls to 111-105 win over Cavaliers
Gibson scored 23 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out five assists in the Bulls win. "The honeymoon stage is over", he said. While Butler and Dwyane Wade rack up the deserved headlines, Gibson and center Robin Lopez have been steady and solid for months.
From this statement we can predict that any future plan will include slashes to Medicaid expansion, subsidies to help middle class Americans buy private policies and tax penalties for those who refuse to get coverage, which can help cut down on soaring premiums for this population. A majority of Democrats (57 percent) favor this provision but far fewer independents (30 percent) and Republicans (21 percent) do. Since they're not capable of creating a coherent vision for the future of health insurance, they've decided the best way to deal with Obamacare is to repeal it without a replacement plan in sight. The idea was to make sure that the newly covered patients had some skin in the game when they made their health-care decisions.
"The caution here for repealers is that, at the end of the day, people will care more about their insurance, their access to care and their economic security than they will about the ACA", Altman said.
Mr Trump called Mr Price "exceptionally qualified" to help replace Obamacare. In return for significant choice in their health coverage and enhanced benefits, the plan required numerous state's poorest residents to contribute a few dollars into health savings accounts, then purchase their own insurance with help from the state. Lamar Alexander told reporters, "Well I agree with President-elect Trump who said those things should be done simultaneously". The poll shows the public is more likely to predict "bad" results for the uninsured (43 percent), lower-income Americans (43 percent) and women (36 percent), and more likely to predict "good" results for wealthy Americans (39 percent).
The poll also revealed an apparent contradiction in Trump voters' feelings about the law.
