Latest Obamacare repeal bill faces bipartisan criticism in NY

CHANG: As Senator Cassidy works to secure the votes needed to pass this bill, Jimmy Kimmel is urging his viewers to pressure their representatives to vote against it. More than 40 percent of the state's population - or about 900,000 low-income adults, children and disabled individuals - is now covered by the joint federal-state health care program.

The proposal would also eliminate Obamacare subsidies that lower premiums, deductibles, and co-pays in 2020.

"If this bill would be law, it would just do a lot of damage to Arkansas, and the people who count on Medicaid and the ArkansasWorks program".

Because the bill depends on states to implement it, the exact effects are impossible to estimate. States would be allowed to require working as a condition for Medicaid eligibility. This latest bill is sponsored by senators Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana.

Kimmel began with President Donald Trump getting involved on Twitter on Wednesday night. Then, a group of ten Republicans including Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, sent a letter saying they supported the bill.

"Millions of people lost coverage of Obamacare". Obamacare is a failed model, it's a faulty architecture. "Are we going to ram through our proposal?"
