Fifth Republican Senator Steps Forward in Dissent Against Health Care Bill

24 Juin 2017

Erasing Obama's law has been a marquee pledge for Trump and virtually the entire party for years.

Assistant Director of the Dayton Access Center for Independent Living, Greg Kramer, says cutting Medicaid would hurt many low-income people with disabilities who rely on the program for health care and services. The bill would create a new system of federal tax credits to help people buy health insurance, while offering states the ability to drop numerous benefits required by the ACA.

"I really feel that people have to recognize a vote to be able to cut back Medicaid, which is what this really is.is a vote to be able to lose your seat whether you're in the Senate or the House".

Republican Senator Rob Portman says he looks forward to reviewing the Congressional Budget Office's fiscal analysis of the GOP proposal. Both the House and Senate would have to vote again on a final version before sending it to President Donald Trump for signature.

None of the conservative senators have said that they are going to oppose the bill.

Sen. James Lankford (R, Okla.) said, "Put me down as a solid 'undecided'". "It's what people expected based on the news coverage we've seen over the past few weeks". Dean Heller of Nevada, facing a competitive 2018 re-election battle, Rob Portman of OH and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia expressed concerns about the bill's cuts to Medicaid and drug-addiction treatment efforts.

Sen. Susan Collins of ME reiterated her opposition to language blocking federal money for Planned Parenthood, which many Republicans oppose because it provides abortions.

Obama held nothing back as he weighed in on Facebook. Trump lauded its passage in a Rose Garden ceremony, but he called it "mean" last week.

Heller also warned that Trumpcare would strip coverage from "millions of Americans".

The Senate health care bill created to replace the Affordable Care Act has drawn criticism from conservative Republican lawmakers who say the measure does not go far enough to repeal Obamacare.
