Under New Healthcare Law, Here’s What You Need to Know

The American Healthcare Act, surely, could have been better.   Now that the healthcare act has passed its first major hurdle, criticism,  runs deep.   We've spent hours analyzing the amendment package released Wednesday night; the bill itself, and other appropriate document files provided to The Daily News by Washington figure heads. First. The Upton Amendment. The Upton Amendment proposes that some $8billion be  provided to states (for example) with people who fall into (let's call it for purposes of this article) Healthcare Class B.   People in Healthcare Class B essentially who let their healthcare lapse for 63 calendar days or more, would by all accounts, have to pay much higher premiums than normal due to the lapse.

In a big win for the money-hungry and cozy insurance companies, an estimated 24m people are set to lose their insurance if the health bill becomes law.  On Thursday,  the GOP managed to secure the required 217 votes to pass its first hurdle, but,  the fight isn't over yet. In the controversial "Repeal And Replace" of Obama 's signature Obamacare law, Republicans, pretty much want to make it easier for insurance companies to "grant waivers" that result in patients getting charged-like-crazy for pre-existing conditions.
