Trump is willing to work with Senate Republicans on health care bill

24 Juin 2017

The Republican Senate today released their draft of the American Health Care Act, which is meant to replace the the existing Affordable Care Act.

Further, this legislative scheme that will take away health care for millions of Americans is being supported by a bunch of Senate Republicans whose health care coverage is guaranteed by the taxpayer.

The Senate plan to repeal and replace Obamacare may be in trouble.

- Senate Republicans are aiming for a final vote next Thursday, before lawmakers leave town for the weeklong July 4th recess.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican Sen.

Ted Cruz Thursday said he couldn't back the bill.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) can lose just two votes and still pass the legislation, the Better Care Reconciliation.

McConnell has acknowledged that he's willing to change the measure before it's voted on.

Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst is suggesting Iowans would not be losing Medicaid coverage even as the Senate GOP health care bill would phase out financing to expand the low-income insurance program.

Ward added. "Of course, I hope so, but I don't get a vote, and hopefully we top that pound-for-pound list now". Both fighters had their moments. "I didn't feel like I was getting knocked down with his punches".

"It doesn't protect Nevadans on Medicaid and the most vulnerable Nevadans", Heller said at a news conference in Las Vegas.

"I don't believe that the president has specifically weighed in that it's right to cut Medicaid", Sanders said, adding that Trump will continue to negotiate with the Congress "until we get the best bill that we can".

This is the bill with "heart" President Trump told senators he wanted?

Democrats were hoping to scare off as many Republican votes as possible by planning efforts around the country to criticize the measure.

The clock is ticking, as they say.

Mr Obama wrote that "health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did". The bill's biggest obstacle could be opposition from within the Republican party.

Of the four conservatives, Paul has always been seen as the least likely to end up voting for the bill.

The four are sticking together to get changes, such as fewer government subsidies created to make health insurance more affordable. "We'll have to see". "That's what I want", however, he acknowledged that changing the bill in order to do that is "going to be a very hard lift" because of the conservative senators who are against the Medicaid expansion. Under the House bill, tax credits would be based primarily on age.

The Senate is considering a bill to replace it after the House of Representatives passed their own version.
