Facing Revolt On Healthcare Bill, Senate Republicans Delay Vote

Percentage of people coverd by medicaid Facing Revolt On Healthcare Bill, Senate Republicans Delay Vote

Republicans hold 52 Senate seats.

The 22 million extra uninsured Americans are just 1 million fewer than the number the budget office estimated would become uninsured under the House version.

"We need to talk, we need to see what we can do", the president added.

A look at some of the major changes to the Affordable Care Act in the GOP's new healthcare plan. So it's not that people are getting pushed off a plan.

The Republican bill now will not be considered until after the Senate's week-long 4 July recess. "I think when people are rushed and don't have answers and don't have data.the bill is small, but it affects a lot of people in a real way", said Sen.

She and other moderates were concerned about the bill's sharp cuts to Medicaid for low-income Americans, while conservatives said the measure didn't go far enough to uproot Obamacare.

Bennet says he has spoken to Colorado's Republican Sentator, Cory Gardner, about how he'll vote, but he'll let Gardner speak about his opinion for himself. "Because we know the status quo is simply unacceptable, unsustainable, and no action is just not an option", McConnell said.

It appears Phil Jackson's days with the Knicks are numbered
The Knicks seem to need a change of direction, and Dolan not bringing Jackson back as the president would certainly qualify. The team missed the playoffs last season for the fourth consecutive year after finishing with a record of 31-51.

The bill could be defeated, he said, because the Republicans "cannot excise the rotten core at the centre of their health care bill".

Senator McConnell, whose party has a razor-thin majority in the 100-member Senate, told reporters Republican leaders were still working to get the 50 votes needed to pass the bill. The GOP, however, is aware it could only afford to lose two votes but six Republican senators said they will not support the legislation in its present form, Time reported.

But among more moderate Republicans, the biggest issue with the overhaul effort isn't an issue of conservatism at all- it's a Congressional Budget Office report revealing that the current bill will bring steep cuts, to the tune of $772 billion, to Medicaid over the next decade.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that if the health care bill to repeal and replace Obamacare fails to pass in the Senate, he won't like it but "that's OK".

Five GOP senators had said they would refuse to bring McConnell's bill to the Senate floor: Dean Heller of Nevada, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Susan Collins of ME and Mike Lee of Utah in saying they would refuse to bring the bill to the Senate floor. "No way", he stated, given the current progress made on passing the bill.

It would cut Medicaid, which provides health insurance to over 70 million poor and disabled people, by $772 billion through 2026 by capping its overall spending and phasing out Obama's expansion of the program.

But at least nine Republicans senators have now said they oppose the bill as is, including Rob Portman of OH and Shelly Moore Capito of West Virginia. "It is now the Senate's turn and I think they're going to do it". "The idea is to give people more choice, to have competition in the market".
