Stuck in the Middle with Trump: The White House Tries to Rally Support for House Health Care Reform

With the release of the House's ACA replacement plan meeting with less than unanimous approval among the GOP faithful, President Trump finds himself in the unfamiliar position of mediator. In the past week, Trump and members of his administration have done their best to assuage the fears of moderate Republicans in the Senate and temper the anti-regulatory zeal of the Freedom Caucus and, by all accounts, it doesn't appear they've been too successful. Does Trump have a Plan B if the American Health Care Act doesn't pass? And, if he does, what will that mean for people living with HIV?

A Government Divided

The honeymoon period of the 115th Congress appears to be over for the Republican majority, particularly when it comes to health care reform. With fissures emerging between the House and the Senate and between members of the Freedom Caucus and more moderate Republicans, finding an Affordable Care Act repeal and replacement that they all can agree on is looking less and less likely as time goes by.

New Administration, Old Approach: Trump advocates Medicaid Block Grants & ACA Repeal

For more than half a century, Medicaid has served as an invaluable safety net for low income individuals and family, as well as a crucial health care resource for people living with disabilities. And, for much of that time, people living with HIV/AIDS have been some of the biggest beneficiaries of the entitlement program, with more the 40% of PLWHA who are in care today utilizing. This week, what had been feared was confirmed, as the Trump administration made clear their intention to block grant Medicaid, a move that will leave millions of Americans without health care.

Repeal Without Replace: Senate Starts Undoing Obamacare With No Replacement

While most of the country was sleeping, the Senate voted in favor of a budget resolution that officially starts the countdown clock to at least a partial repeal of the Affordable Care Act. However, while there is a little more certainty regarding repeal of the ACA after Thursday morning's vote, Senate Republicans still have no concrete plan for what to replace it with or how to protect the 29 million Americans who stand to lose their insurance in its absence.

Replacing Obamacare: A Look At Competing Conservative Health Care Proposals

During the 6 years since it was signed into law, House Republicans have voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act more than 60 times.

HIV Advocates Face Challenges New & Old After Stunning US Elections

As HIV advocates, many of us went into Tuesday's election laboring under the belief that they would soon be dealing with a new administration led by a woman who had a track record of working to end the HIV epidemic for more than 20 years. Instead, we are faced with a President-elect who has campaigned on the promise of repealing the Affordable Care Act and had no HIV/AIDS policy as part of his campaign. The coming years will most assuredly be tough ones, but experience tells us that we have the strength to persevere through them.
