Presidential debate: Trump, Obama clash over health care

26 Juin 2017

The Associated Press, citing anonymous congressional sources, reported earlier this month that Trump called the House's version of the bill "mean" during a meeting with Republican senators, asking them to make their version of the bill be more "generous".

The president is promising some last minute changes to the Senate Republican healthcare bill to try to secure enough votes to get the legislation passed. "I will study the bill to determine whether it fulfills President Trump's campaign promises to lower premiums, maintain coverage and protect those with preexisting conditions without mandates", he said.

President Donald Trump promised to repeal and replace the health care law Republicans deride as "Obamacare". "That's not going to happen with us".

"If they're not going to use the committee process for health care, I doubt they'll use it for tax reform", he said.

Sen. Christopher S. Murphy, a former House member, said he thought that through the health care exercise, "we may be seeing the Senate fundamentally changing before our eyes".

Some Republican critics on the right say the congressional bills leave other major parts of "Obamacare" in place, such as subsidies for people buying private insurance, and too many rules.

Toomey said there are a lot of misconceptions with the bill that he wants to clear up.

FreedomWorks, who is backing Johnson and Paul's criticism of the new health care bill, is getting more specific in their problems with it. Jason Pye believes the Senate bill will end up being another government bailout.

One set in which Shah was among the proposers was in Hindi, which some BJP leaders said was a rare practice. Apart from NDA parties, BJP has support of JD (U), TRS, YSRCP, AIADMK and BJD.

"I can not imagine that these very fine Republican Senators would allow the American people to suffer a broken ObamaCare any longer!"

If Democrats all vote against the bill, Senate Republicans can only afford to lose two votes among their own ranks. There's no way we should be voting on this next week.

Speaking on the release of the bill, which was kept under wraps until Thursday, Trump said: "It's going to be very good", adding: "A little negotiation, but it's going to be very good".

Presidential counsellor Kellyanne Conway emphasized Sunday that the Senate health care bill, otherwise known as "Trumpcare", does not cut Medicaid funding. "Let's have the integrity to show the American people what it is, show them the truth".

"It would be so great if the Democrats and Republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it and come up with something that everybody's happy with", the United States president said.

Sen. Susan Collins, a moderate Republican whose support of the draft is crucial to its passing, raised concerns with a proposed provision defunding of Planned Parenthood.

Trump bemoaned the lack of bipartisanship in Washington, having belittled prominent Democrats himself. "We have a few people that are I think, I could say modestly, they're not standing on the rooftops and screaming". They've been able to get treatment and support services through Medicaid. He needs the support of at least 50 of the 52 Republican senators.
