Rep. Thompson on AHCA Amendments

Rep. Thompson on AHCA Amendments, from the Centre Daily Times:

“I’m anticipating further amendments to the American Health Care Act, which will aim to provide additional protections for our most vulnerable populations,” Thompson said in a statement to the CDT on Wednesday afternoon. “There is a commitment to making sure those who have pre-existing conditions will be able to afford the care they need and deserve.”

According to NYT, revisions to the bill on Wednesday included $8 billion in additional funds over a five-year period to supplement insurance for people with pre-existing health issues.

“I remain committed to repealing and replacing Obamacare, and while much of the debate has been fueled by partisan rhetoric, I look forward to working to making our health care system work better for everyone,” Thompson said.
