The AP (11/3, Fram) reported that on Friday, the US House voted 242-174 to approve “five more years of financing for” the Children’s Health Insurance Program, but “a partisan battle over paying for the extension” is expected to delay Senate approval of the bill. The House bill would cover the costs by cutting funds to the Prevention and Public Health Fund, established by the ACA, and by “raising Medicare premiums on upper-income recipients.” The article said most Democrats opposed the measure, arguing that it “would reduce money for providing vaccines and opioid abuse efforts,” while raising Medicare premiums for high earners might cause them to leave the program.
