Dow Newswires: “Anthem Inc. said it believes that the Senate Republicans’ health bill will bolster the individual insurance market, an endorsement for the legislation as many other insurers have suggested it could undermine the marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act.”

“In a statement, Anthem said it believed the bill “will markedly improve the stability of the individual market and moderate premium increases,” because it allots billions to help stabilize the markets, eliminates a tax on health insurance plans and, Anthem said, works on “aligning premium subsidies with premium costs.”
Anthem also mentioned “the challenges the current bill proposes to the Medicaid program knowing how important it is to achieve the necessary funding and access to health-care services and supports are for the individuals and families who rely on them to live healthy meaningful lives in their communities.””

Obama spoke about the plan last week: “The Senate bill, unveiled today, is not a health care bill. It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle class and poor families to the richest people in America. It hands enormous tax cuts to the rich and to the drug and insurance industries, paid for by cutting health care for everybody else. … Simply put, if there’s a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family this bill will do you harm. And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation.”

Yesterday on ABC Schumer continued rant about how much America hates Pres Trump while saying how little his party is doing for the people: “We’d better stand for something.”
