She said there's still a need for some sort of rule created to push healthy people to buy insurance, to replace Obamacare's individual mandate -which would be eliminated under the Senate proposal. "Because of this, I can not support it as now drafted, and I do not believe it has the votes to pass the Senate".

"I can not support a piece of legislation that takes insurance away from tens of millions of Americans and tens of thousands of Nevadans", Heller said. "Not to repeal and replace but to fix aspects of the Affordable Care Act that need resolution", she said. But some could pay more for less.

Medicaid funding is at the heart of the protester's complaints. If coverage losses from the Senate bill matched those from the House bill, it would result in 217,000 additional deaths over the next decade.

Health insurers are concerned about the U.S. Senate's plans to cut the Medicaid program for the poor and the impact such a move would have on state governments, the industry's largest lobbyist said on Friday. "We provide comprehensive reproductive health care services and it's those services funded by the federal government and those services are at risk now", said Welch. "Well, they're also four good guys, four friends of mine, and I think that they'll probably get there", he said.

But, I say we give it a chance. It penalized anyone who failed to buy insurance. They say the GOP plan would mean fewer people with coverage and higher costs for many. "We have not addressed that adequately", Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and MoveOn.org were planning weekend rallies in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.

Giaimo focuses on health care policy.

"You have to protect Medicaid expansion states".

But Caroline Pearson, a senior vice president at the consulting firm Avalere Health, says the bill bases its tax credits on lower-quality insurance."If you're paying a similar percentage of income, you're getting a less generous product under this new plan", she says.

Democrats are united in opposition to the proposal, which was worked out in secret by a group led Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Johnson said Friday that would be "way too early". The White House said it is hopeful a final bill will be finished before lawmakers leave Washington later this summer.

Senate Republicans on Thursday unveiled their plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act - also known as Obamacare. His home state has taken advantage of federal funds to expand its Medicaid rolls: As of March, more than 630,000 Nevadans had enrolled for Medicaid coverage, nearly double the number of enrollees who signed up in the state before Obamacare, according to data compiled by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Because they also painted over the part that sets certain minimum standards for insurance policies.

"It's all these mandates that have artificially driven up the cost of insurance on the individual market", Sen. He supports the expansion of health savings accounts and giving Americans more freedom in choosing plans that are right for them.

We will continue to hear from our constituents and we are already. Johnson said, "It's freaky what we've done to our healthcare markets".

"If you have low-priced insurance, you go back to what you had before the Affordable Care Act, where you have plans that have all sorts of exclusions from coverage or you have to pay an extra amount", Giaimo said.
