Bills are about taxes, not health

Pressure came from the president in the form of a tweet, saying, "I can't imagine that Congress would dare to leave Washington without a attractive new health care bill fully approved and ready to go". Republican leaders had initially hoped to vote on legislation to roll back Obamacare before last week's recess, but postponed the planned vote once it became clear the Bill did not have enough support for passage.

"It's important for Republicans not to be deceived by the attacks that are coming out of Chuck Schumer and the Democrats", said Cruz, who has repeatedly cautioned against setting "artificial" deadlines on a health care vote.

Members of the Senate Republican Conference could be briefed on the process Tuesday when they meet for a closed-door lunch.

A dark mood lingered among some Republicans over the health-care subject, with party leaders appearing to act because of the need to dispense with health care and turn to other issues, among them increasing the US debt ceiling.

Moderate GOP senators - yes, there are a few left - realize that the bill is more of a turkey than an eagle. As you said, you know, it is a recognition of just how sensitive Republicans are feeling to criticism that we're halfway through the year with a new Republican majority in Congress, a Republican in the White House, and the party doesn't have much to show for it in terms of legislative victories. She said she's concerned about the impact of proposed cuts to Medicaid under the broader plan.

"Let's repeal, separate that from all the big government spending programs, and put it into a separate bill that maybe Democrats and big government Republicans may like, but conservatives like myself will not vote for", Paul said on Tuesday on Fox News' "America's Newsroom" with co-anchor Bill Hemmer.
