Missourians Woke Up To a Healthcare Disaster: “Governor could set coverage limits”

The morning after Republican U.S. Senate leaders finally unveiled their secret healthcare overhaul, Missourians woke up to the front-page news that, in addition to slashing healthcare resources, the GOP’s bill would give top statewide Republicans including the Governor new authority to make critical decisions about whether or not to gut healthcare throughout the state, with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporting that “Governors could set coverage limits.”

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch continues to explain that the Senate bill:

“Would weaken certain consumer protections and give states, particularly governors, more power in deciding what is required to be included in health insurance coverage.”

Missouri Democratic Party Chair Stephen Webber added:

“For Missouri’s top statewide Republican officeholders — Eric Greitens, Mike Parson, and Josh Hawley — the question is simple: Will they use their new authority in the Senate bill to gut healthcare for Missourians?”
