Insurance groups tear into Cruz amendment to health care bill as "unworkable"

Insurance groups tear into Cruz amendment to health care bill as

The Senate is slated to begin voting on its health care bill this week.

McConnell tweeted that the Senate will work on other legislative items and "will defer consideration of the Better Care Act" while McCain is recovering. John McCain is recovering from surgery in his home state of Arizona this week.

Can Sen. Mitch McConnell round up enough Republican votes to force the destruction of Medicaid and other punishing measures on working people, while preserving huge tax cuts for the rich?

Without McCain, Republicans would not have had the 50 votes necessary to advance the bill. John McCain recuperates from surgery to remove a blood clot, will take it up as soon as all senators are available, said Sen. Sens. Tom Cotton and John Boozman claim, from in hiding through spokespeople, to still be in serious contemplation of this latest bit of Republican meanness.

Collins said she was unsure if the bill would pass, while Paul, in an interview on "Fox News Sunday", said he thought support existed for a "narrow, clean repeal" of Obamacare. Susan M. Collins of ME, have come out publicly against the health care bill. With the GOP holding a 52-48 majority, they can afford to lose only two Republicans.

The House GOP bill that passed in May and the revised Senate GOP bill announced last week would effectively eliminate the coverage guarantee by allowing health insurers to once again sell skimpier plans and charge more to people with preexisting health conditions who need more-comprehensive coverage.

Collins has said she plans to vote against the bill, reiterating the position in the Sunday interview.

"The Senate health care bill stops the Obamacare disaster, expands choice and drives down costs - and I want to tell you the Republican senators are working very hard to get something that's going to be really, really good - the opposite of the big lie which was Obamacare", Mr. Trump said in the address.

Medicaid affects millions of Americans, young and old

Mr. Paul cautioned the president against overselling the legislation.

"It could lead to insurance plans that really are barely insurance at all".

White House spokeswoman Helen Aguirre Ferre declined to say whether the president made calls to senators over the weekend on the health care bill. "I've been involved with health care for 20 years as a physician", he told host Christ Wallace.

Following the surgery, McConnell wished Senator McCain a speedy recovery.

ABC's Jon Karl asked, referring to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) decision to postpone a vote on the bill.

A number of moderates, including Ms. Collins, have expressed concerns over the bill's cuts to the growth of Medicaid.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) on Sunday said Senate Republicans' bill to repeal Obamacare would make "sweeping and deep cuts" to Medicaid and endanger rural hospitals without "a single hearing" in the Senate to evaluate the proposal's effects.
