As senators in Washington continue to grapple with how to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, Ohio’s contingent explain why they have not embraced plans that have been introduced so far. They talk about what needs to be done to win their support.

Republican Sen. Rob Portman didn’t support the initial plan in the Senate because it could have hurt the state’s fight against opioids.

More than 40 senators have signed a letter to President Donald Trump asking him to rescind his executive order promising to repeal the Affordable Care Act.  In exchange, the senators offer to work with the Trump administration to amend the healthcare act. Ohio Democrat Sherrod Brown is among the group of senators.

Both of Ohio’s US Senators were very concerned about what would happen to the 700,000 Ohioans now on Medicaid through the Affordable Care Act if the ACA was repealed.

Now that the House has released its plan, one is completely opposed, but the other isn’t totally sold on it either.
