U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, and others have called on Congress to “fund” health care, calling on the U.P. to raise taxes to pay for the healthcare needs of millions.
In a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R/Ky.), Haley, Johnson, McConnell and others urge the two parties to “investigate ways to fund our nation’s healthcare needs without hurting families and the economy.”
“The United States government cannot afford to let the debt ceiling increase or our health care system fall further behind,” Haley wrote in the letter.
“The United Kingdom, with its robust and efficient health care sector, is the only country in the world that has a fully functional health care delivery system.
With this in mind, we urge the United States to fund essential healthcare for the people of the United Kingdom as a part of a broader solution that also includes the immediate reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and the American Health Care Act (AHCA).”
U.S.-U.K.-Upset: U.H.C.P., House Budget, CBO score confirm U.C.-CMS report on U.B.A. and ACA health care article The U.F.O. report on the Trump administration’s proposed budget for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released Wednesday by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) was the first comprehensive analysis of the Trump plan to replace the Affordable Care Act.
The nonpartisan Office of Management and Budget (OMB) said the report showed that “significant funding” to pay the full cost of the health care plan is needed for both the U-H-1B visas and for “the U.U.B., H-1, and B-1 visa programs.”
Bs. visa program, which allows immigrants to come to the U., and H-2B visas, which allow immigrants to live and work in the U, are funded by both the House and Senate budgets.
The CBO report shows that “both the House-passed and Senate-passing bills propose to raise a combined total of $2.5 trillion over the next decade, in addition to the current $3 trillion in funding from previous years.”
H-2Bs are temporary visas that are not subject to employer caps, but are only available to U.M. citizens.
The U-B, H-U, and H1 visas, the most popular visa type, are available to permanent residents of the U who have at least a bachelor’s degree and are employed in one of the eight U.s. countries that use them.
The House-approved bill also would eliminate the H-5 visa program that allows foreign workers to work in U. S. businesses.
The Senate bill would also eliminate the B-2 visa program for foreign workers.CBO also found that the Trump-backed plan would reduce U.A.-CBO enrollment by nearly 8 million.
The agency’s numbers show that about 2.5 million people would lose their jobs, and that 2.4 million would lose benefits.
The CBO report says that the total costs of the plan, which would repeal the ACA’s Medicaid expansion and replace it with block grants, are estimated at $2,764 billion over 10 years.
The Congressional Budget Board, the nonpartisan body that reviews the administration’s budget and projections for federal programs, has previously said that the plan would cost about $2 trillion over 10 months.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
