Tom Price on Health-Care Bill: Up Is Down

The changes got Johnson to say he'd vote "yes" to start debating the bill, but he then raised new concerns in Green Bay.

Senate Republicans unveiled a revised version of their health care bill Thursday, and GOP leaders had planned a vote, or at least to take the procedural steps toward a vote, in the upcoming week.

In a statement on McCain, McConnell said he and his wife, Elaine Chao, the country's transportation secretary, and the Senate "wish John the very best and wish him a speedy recovery".

Eight to 10 Republican US senators are said to have serious concerns about Republican healthcare legislation to dismantle and replace Obamacare, meaning that one of President Donald Trump's key campaign promises is still no closer to becoming a reality. The removal involved a "minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision", the hospital said.

"(Sen. McCain) appreciates the tremendous professionalism and care by its doctors and staff", McCain's office said in a statement released July 15.

Paul made the comments just hours after Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced on Saturday that the Senate will not vote on the health plan this week in McCain's absence.

A new U.S. Senate version of a bill repealing the Affordable Care Act retains major cuts to Medicaid and will not ease pressure on Arizona's senators to oppose the measure. And on Monday the group UltraViolet is holding demonstrations outside the offices of senators Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio), two so-called moderates who are considered potential "no" votes.

McConnell had no choice but to seek a delay because without McCain's vote, it is likely the bill would not receive the 50 votes necessary for passage.

John Kennedy said the "unfair treatment" under McConnell's original bill would have cost the state $2 billion.

Mr McCain is a three-time survivor of melanoma. Lawmakers are waiting for the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office's review early next week. Several Republicans, including Sens. But there's no guarantee the extra time will accomplish anything except giving senators more heartburn. Now that everybody understands that health care is complicated we need to move forward on a solution.

The letter expresses opposition to a provision, included in the new GOP repeal bill, that would allow insurers to sell plans that do not meet ObamaCare regulations, including the ban on discrimination based on pre-existing conditions, if they also sold plans that did meet the requirements. He had hoped the bill would be voted on this week.

The Republican bill rolls back numerous Medicaid expansions put in place under the ACA and takes away numerous protections that the ACA forced insurance policies to have.
