GOP Senate health care bill teetering on edge of collapse

GOP Senate health care bill teetering on edge of collapse

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellMitch McConnellCBO won't have Monday score for Senate healthcare bill After delay, Senate Republicans struggle not to let healthcare stall Health Secretary Price: More people will be covered under GOP bill than are now covered MORE (R-Ky.) announced Saturday night that Senate consideration of legislation repealing and replacing ObamaCare will be delayed while Sen.

I wish Senator McCain all the best in his recovery. "Yes, I believe as soon as we have a full contingent of senators, we'll have that vote". McConnell issued his statement not long after McCain's office disclosed that he had undergone surgery to remove a blood clot from above his left eye.

"His Mayo Clinic doctors report that the surgery went "very well" and he is in good spirits", his office said.

On Saturday, Republican Senator John McCain that he would be absent in the Senate next week. Rand Paul (R-KY) have said they will not vote to start debate on the bill.

"While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act". The date that the score will be released is not clear.

Republicans control only 52 votes in the chamber, and the early opposition to the bill from Collins and Paul means McConnell can't afford to lose any more votes from his party given the united Democratic opposition.

Cornyn on Sunday ascribed those poor numbers to criticism of the legislation.

The newest version of the amendment keeps that basic framework intact, but makes one important revision: Rather than allow insurers to put those purchasing Obamacare-compliant health insurance plans (these people will most likely have pre-existing conditions) and those purchasing every other type of plan, many of which would be cheaper than the Obamacare-compliant plans, in two different risk pools, all plans would have to be placed in the same risk pool.

We have watched one Republican health-care plan after another-the original House plan, the Meadows-MacArthur amended plan, the original Senate plan and now the Cruz-amended plan. The GOP's latest bill, which was released Thursday, would cut overall Medicaid funding by more than 30 percent and eliminate the Affordable Care Act's expansion of that program.

That said, McCain is not anymore gung-ho about the bill than many of his fellow Republicans.

"You are asking me what number am I comfortable with - well, I don't know", Cassidy said.

The proposed legislation announced by Graham and Cassidy has not yet been introduced in the Senate and no bill text is yet available. With all Democrats voting no, that would leave Republicans with just 49 votes, given McCain's absence.

I saw an honest Republican congressman on TV the other day.

The bill also seeks to win the support of senators from OH and West Virginia by putting in more money for opioid addiction treatment, and boosting state subsidies for Florida, Louisiana and other red states. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who is getting a free pass for waging total resistance, knows there is little outcome for Democrats if Obamacare explodes, even though his party made the Obamacare mess, and has an obligation to fix it.

"That's a real concern to me in terms of our ability to trust whatever's being promised in the bill we're being presented", Johnson said.
