Health care fever picks up heat in the heartland
Remember, most people are covered by their employer's health care plan. There are more than thirty thousand in our seventh Congressional District. Instead we get a program that does a little and spawns private sector companies that sell insurance to supplement what the government can not cover.
They promised all Americans would have access to affordable quality health care. Going to the doctor and getting meds when you have the flu should not cost you so much.
But the bill is more than just what happens to health care premiums. Sen.
They decided that every American human being, no matter what their sex, age, health or personal needs or desires, deserved Cadillac care for any possible sickness or service.

Then there are the tea party Republicans, who'd like to abolish entitlement programs and certainly don't want tax credits for lower-income people of the kind in the Republican plan.
According to a recent Pew Research study, the majority of Republicans earning $30,000 per year or less - 52 percent - believe it is the government's responsibility to provide health care for all citizens. Health insurers have long used age as a factor in determining the cost of health insurance premiums, and most states allow this. The ACA tax credits are based on income and how much insurance costs in a given area.
President Donald Trump and Republican congressional leaders back the proposed new health care law, but conservative stalwarts such as the Heritage Foundation's lobbying arm and the American Enterprise Institute oppose the plan.
