On Thursday, the Senate passed its version of the American Health Care Act.
The bill will now head to the House, where Republican leaders have indicated they may use the House’s conference to move forward on a “skinny” repeal, or repeal and replace, of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
This is a very risky strategy for the GOP, given the current political environment.
A recent Quinnipiac University poll found that a majority of Americans (53 percent) say the health care law has been “bad for them,” and another 51 percent said the GOP bill would “damage the economy and reduce the quality of life.”
But there are also a number of advantages to the GOP’s strategy.
While the Senate bill’s provisions may have less impact on premiums, they do affect the way Americans access health care.
One provision of the Senate plan would let insurers sell their plans across state lines, effectively giving them more freedom to expand their networks.
This could allow insurers to sell plans with lower deductibles and co-pays and charge them more.
The ACA also allowed insurance companies to sell their policies across state borders, which could mean they could offer policies across states.
This has made it possible for some insurers to lower premiums in some markets while offering coverage to others.
If the GOP health care plan is approved by the House and becomes law, it could lead to even more premium increases and the eventual loss of coverage.
The CBO says the Republican plan will increase the deficit by $337 billion over the next decade, and that’s before you even factor in any cuts to Medicaid.
Republicans argue that this will be offset by lowering premiums for individuals.
The House passed a similar bill in May, and the Senate has been looking for ways to cut Medicaid spending.
Republicans want to eliminate federal funding for Medicaid expansion and provide states more flexibility in the program.
Under this plan, states could opt to either expand their Medicaid programs or limit eligibility to certain groups of people.
While Republicans would still need to pass a budget, the CBO estimated that they could get rid of Medicaid expansion by 2026, but that would lead to the elimination of Medicaid spending by $1.4 trillion.
The GOP bill also proposes to eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides abortion services.
Republicans also want to defund Planned Parenthood altogether, and to impose new taxes on individuals who don’t have health insurance or who do not pay taxes.
The American Health Policy Institute has estimated that repealing Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers will reduce spending by more than $100 billion over 10 years.
The Trump administration has also pushed for a repeal of Medicaid.
The White House has estimated it would save $300 billion by 2022 by cutting off Medicaid funding.
Republicans have said they’ll use the reconciliation process to pass the bill and then use the process to undo the ACA.
In order to pass, the bill must still receive the two-thirds support of the House.
With Republicans in control of both chambers, they will need to win over at least a handful of House Democrats to go along with the repeal.
If Republicans can garner at least the support of two-fifths of House members, they can easily pass their legislation without the support from any Democrats.
If there is a Democratic rebellion, the repeal could still pass, as it has previously, with the support not just of the Democratic majority, but of at least one Democratic senator.
If this happens, the House could then vote on the bill, which would then go to the Senate for its approval, which is likely to be less than 50 votes.
The process of reconciliation has a long history in the U.S. The reconciliation process was first used in the 1920s to pass laws passed by Congress.
But reconciliation was never used to repeal a law, and many Americans say they think it’s a waste of time.
A majority of people do not support repealing Obamacare, according to a poll conducted by Quinnipio in June.
A new poll conducted earlier this year by Public Policy Polling found that 52 percent of Americans said the health insurance law should be repealed.
The poll also found that 48 percent of Republicans support repeal and replaced.
According to a CNN/ORC poll, 58 percent of Democrats support repeal, and 60 percent of independents and 38 percent of people who identify as conservative support it.
In a Quinnipia poll conducted in April, 49 percent of likely voters said the ACA was a “job killer.”
This is not a new trend.
In April, a poll by Public Religion Research Institute found that 51 percent of American adults said that repeal and replacement of the ACA would hurt the economy, while 41 percent said it would not.
The survey found that 53 percent of respondents thought that a repeal and/or replacement of Obamacare would lead the economy to fall into recession, while 32 percent thought that the repeal and the replacement would help it recover.
That poll found a wide range of opinion about the ACA, with 49 percent saying they supported repealing and replacing it,
