MTV News – 1 minute ago We know you’re out there.
The Divine health care bill is being pushed in Congress by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The bill would require all states to expand Medicaid and eliminate subsidies for private health plans.
It would also impose new taxes on the wealthiest Americans and corporations.
This bill would be paid for through new taxes and spending cuts.
In the meantime, states would still be allowed to expand the Medicaid program.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has projected that the bill will add $1.8 trillion to the national debt over the next decade.
The cost of the legislation is estimated at $3 trillion.
If passed, it would cut Medicaid by $1 trillion.
This would cost $3,000 per capita per year, according to a recent analysis from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Service.
We can’t afford to keep doing the same thing.
There are so many things we can do.
We’re not the ones who need to pay for it.
This is just the beginning of a larger debate that could eventually force us to come to an agreement.
The Senate is expected to vote on the bill this week.
