Senate August Recess Delayed for Two Weeks

Senate August Recess Delayed for Two Weeks Senate August Recess Delayed for Two Weeks

Members of the Senate Republican Conference could be briefed on the process Tuesday when they meet for a closed-door lunch.

Collins told reporters Monday she hopes GOP leaders will introduce "more than tweaks" in their revised bill, "or else I won't be able to support it".

The Senate Republicans were an unhappy lot as they headed back to Washington after the deepening disagreements regarding the health-care bill.

And Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, told Breitbart in an interview Monday that the break should be slashed. "My personal goal is to have it up on the floor ready to vote, have the vote-a-rama, next week".

It would be an uphill climb for Republican leaders to pass the measure before the August recess. Trump tweeted at 6:47 a.m.

The GOP has spent the last seven years undermining and running against the Affordable Care Act, regularly repealing it in meaningless votes. On June 26, the CBO said 22 million more people will be uninsured by 2026 under the Senate's Better Care Reconciliation Act.

She claims her leg was broken in the chaos, and she had to shell out for surgery and treatment afterward. Who cares about your lawn chairs.

That Republicans have recently raised the possibility of repealing the ACA without immediately replacing it suggests they're willing to see millions of Americans lose their insurance if it allows them to keep a political promise.

One senator not on that list, John McCain of Arizona, said Sunday on CBS's Face the Nation that the healthcare proposal was "probably going to be dead".

Senate leaders ran into opposition while trying to rush the bill through before the recess, and it's still not clear what changes might be proposed to make the bill palatable to at least 50 Senate Republicans. Otherwise, the bill would require 60 votes, meaning that Republicans would have to involve Democrats.

Over this disagreement looms the monthlong August recess, which McConnell has declared is the unofficial deadline for getting the BCRA passed. "They'd have to explain why they're damned liars" after campaigning on repeal for seven years, said Jason Pye, vice president of legislative affairs for FreedomWorks. "Now they finally have their chance!" he said.

"Now a vote, if one occurs, would likely come in mid-to-late July, with Congress's August recess serving as the next deadline". Trump initially cheered the passage of that bill at a White House rally, but since has called it "mean" and lobbied the Senate to approve an overhaul with "heart".
