Sens. Susan Collins, Rand Paul express doubts about Senate health care bill

26 Juin 2017

Many supporters-like Pennsylvania's Republican US Senator Pat Toomey-say they don't think that will necessarily change Medicaid coverage drastically.

"I have to start off by, I guess first congratulating all of the millionaires on the incredible gift that they're about to get", Danielson said.

"We have a very good plan", he said.

President Donald Trump has complained former president Barack Obama "used his phrase" when he described the GOP healthcare plan as 'mean'. The plan would scale back aid to the poor and kill a tax on the wealthy. "I don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to review the Senate bill", Johnson said. "Look forward to making it really special!"

Discussing the bill, which aims to repeal Obamacare, Obama had said on Thursday in a post on social media: "The Senate bill, unveiled today, is not a health care bill".

Molina also said that the bill's proposal to tie cost-sharing subsidies to the lowest-level "bronze"-rated healthcare plans will make coverage less affordable, not more, by raising customers' out-of-pocket costs". Heller said he thought the bill would harm the elderly, the disabled and people battling substance abuse, adding that he is "not confident" it will lower costs for consumers. "They are living healthier and happier lives because of that decision - I don' think that can be overstated enough".

Shahid Khan, a local official in Parachinar, said Saturday that numerous victims of the attacks are in critical condition. But intelligence officials said one of the men has been identified as a wanted militant commander linked to the IS group.

Republican leadership is aiming to have a vote on the bill next week before senators leave Washington, DC for the Fourth of July recess. The bill also makes major cuts and structural changes to Medicaid, a health insurance program relied upon by almost 75 million Americans - primarily low-income, disabled, and elderly. Even President Trump reportedly called a different version of the bill mean.

Heller, a Republican who is up for re-election in 2018, is the Democrats' top target in the upcoming cycle.

"I would like to delay", said US Senator Ron Johnson, one of the five senators opposing the bill.

With unanimous opposition from Democrats, McConnell can afford to lose just two of the 52 Republican senators and still prevail on the bill. While McConnell's bill curtails the program at a slower rate than the House version, it ultimately cuts deeper, which has prompted senators whose states expanded Medicaid to raise red flags. "There's no way the Republican bill brings down premiums".

McConnell said in an interview with Reuters last month that he told Trump early on in the process that he did not need his help but that there may be a role for him later.
