Senator Bernie Sanders Discusses Health Care, Puerto Rico And Other Issues

States' attorneys general are lining up to sue the federal government to continue making cost sharing reduction payments to insurers, which President Trump Thursday evening indicated that he would be suspending.

Leading Democrats in Congress excoriated the president's executive orders.

Trump's executive order isn't expected to trigger any immediate changes in USA health care policy - or affect coverage in 2018 - because the measures that it calls for could take months or longer to implement. The Essential Plan covers residents whose income is just above the eligibility level for Medicaid; the federal funding, which went to NY rather than the insurance companies, was based on what the value of their cost-sharing reductions would be. "That's what we on the local level need to counteract".

"If the President's attempt to destabilize the health care market succeeds, it will have a devastating impact on Pennsylvania families, our economy and the health care market in our Commonwealth". Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders tells WAMC's North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley he is particularly concerned about President Donald Trump's executive order to roll back the Affordable Care Act. Four companies are expected to offer marketplace plans in the Austin area for 2018, Colvin said, compared to three for 2017.

Cuomo added: "This is just the latest action that targets NY following congress's failure to renew the child health insurance plan and the Health Centers Program, putting our children and the most vulnerable among us at risk to lose access to health care".

Meanwhile, opinions of Trump's executive order among the area's congressional delegation appeared to be divided along partisan lines.

Murphy spokesman Dan Bryan said Friday Murphy would nominate an attorney general who would take "all measures" to "protect health care".

U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith, R-San Antonio, applauded Trump "for taking action to improve access, increase choices and lower costs for Americans' health care".

Lance said he has long argued that funding for the program is unconstitutional.
