Trump demands another vote on ACA

Trump demands another vote on ACA PharmacoEconomics & Outcomes News 784, p38 - 12 Aug 2017 Trump demands another vote on ACA The US President, Donald Trump, has urged US Republican Senators not to be "total quitters" and demanded that legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) be passed by Senate Republicans, reports a BMJ news article. Trump posted via Twitter on 29 July 2017 that "Repeal & Replace is not dead! Demand another vote before voting on any other bill!". The president has advised that if Congress fails to repeal the ACA, he will block health coverage contributions made by the federal government to Congress members and their staff. Commenting on this, alongside mention of an ACA provision that subsidises insurers to allow reduced coverage prices for low income enrolees, Trump said "if a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!". The bill to repeal the 2010 health reform law was defeated on 28 July 2017 after three Republican senators joined all 46 senate Democrats to oppose the latest repeal measure, a so-called "skinny repeal" which would have removed some ACA provisions but left large sections of the law intact. Analysts had predicted that 16 million additional people would have been without insurance within 10 years if the measure had been passed. Congressional Republicans have promised for 7 years to repeal the ACA, whilst Trump vowed to make this the first order of business of his administration. However, following the latest defeat of the Republican bill, support for the ACA appears to have grown, with 64% of people surveyed believing the law should either be unchanged or have problem areas fixed. Although another repeal measure could be brought up by Republicans this year, Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell believes that "it’s time to move on" and advised he would now take up other legislation.
