    Latest ACA Replacement Not Looking Any More Promising Than Previous Efforts

    The latest tweaks to a healthcare bill intended as the existing ACA replacement doesn’t look any more promising than the preceding bill. One of several contentious topics is whether pre-existing conditions have enough protection in the new bill. There were just enough changes for the American Health Care Act (AHCA) to pass through the house, but it’s unlikely to make it through the Senate in its current state. It appears as though the new American Healthcare Act will remain in limbo for a while longer, which means the ACA remains intact - for now.

    As indicated in “Can the American Health Care Act Pass in the Senate?,” posted by Brendan Morrow on, the AHCA needs 51 votes to pass in the Senate and there are 52 Republicans. While that may seem like a slam dunk, there are several Republicans who have already indicated they won’t support the current bill. There are still weak provisions for the recipients of Medicaid and Republican Susan Collins indicated that she couldn’t support the bill in its current form. “It really misses the mark.”

    The Senate has not scheduled a date for a vote and the Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn indicated that they aren’t in a hurry. They want to make sure they have all of the votes needed to pass the legislation before even scheduling the vote. Since they aren’t under any deadline, they will take all the time needed to secure support.
