The Republicans, a new House, and Healthcare in the U.S.

Republicans are the majority party in the United States House of Representatives for the next two years. That means there will be a new Republican Speaker of the House, who is second in line of succession should the President be incapacited.

Based on the results of the 2022 midterm election, Republicans are the majority party in the United States House of Representatives for the next two years. That means there will be a new Republican Speaker of the House, who is second in line of succession should the President be incapacited.

It is likely any House decisions regarding healthcare will follow the views expressed in the Republican party platform.

Here I list links to posts I wrote last year reviewing key health related positions in the 2016 Republican party platform (the most recent). I suggest you read the entire platform using the link I included. The party leadership has said they intend to update the platform in 2024, the next presidential election year.

These posts are for your information and education and do not imply my agreement or endorsement, as is true of the Democratic positions which I review in another post.

The Democrats, a new Senate, and Healthcare in the U.S.

Democrats remain the majority party in the United States Senate by a slim margin. With a Democrat Vice President (who can vote in case of a tie),issues brought before the Senate will likely support the President and the party platform
