Sen. Majority Whip: Debate on Health Care Bill Will be 'Open Process'

17 Juillet 2017

This amendment would allow insurers to offer plans that don't cover essential health benefits, such as mental health services and protections for pre-existing conditions, in addition to plans that comply with the current Affordable Care Act regulations. "We wish Sen. McCain a speedy recovery", said Helen Aguirre Ferre, director of media affairs.McConnell last week had refashioned the legislation to attract additional GOP votes. "Yes, I believe as soon as we have a full contingent of senators, we'll have that vote".

McCain had announced earlier on Saturday that he would not be in the Senate next week, depriving Republicans of a key vote.

McCain's surgeons removed the clot during a minimally invasive craniotomy through an incision in the 80-year-old lawmaker's eyebrow. "His Mayo Clinic doctors report that the surgery went very well and he is in good spirits".

A close vote has already been predicted to pass the GOP health care bill, with all Democrats and independents coming out against it and some Republicans opposed or undecided.

Republican Sens. (Nev.), (Alaska), (Ohio), (W.Va.) and (N.D.) all attended the meeting. Susan Collins of ME and Rand Paul of Kentucky - have already said they will not vote to proceed to the measure.

"While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act", McConnell said in a statement on Twitter.

Paul, meanwhile, argues that the GOP health care bills wouldn't repeal enough of the Affordable Care Act.

Cornyn on Sunday ascribed those poor numbers to criticism of the legislation. (R-Texas) by including language giving insurance companies more flexibility in what kind of plans they sell, but the concessions risks support from centrists anxious that this will lead premiums to rise on sick people and those with pre-existing conditions. To address some conservative concerns, the new version includes an amendment that Sen.

Le Drian's visit will follow similar trips made by his counterparts from Germany and Britain in recent weeks. Despite the blockade by the four Arab countries, life has not been impacted significantly in Qatar.

So even if the only official score comes back and says that tens of millions of people will be left uninsured with this bill - where do you draw that line then with that fudge factor?

"I don't think anybody should be meeting with foreign agents, or people that represent foreign governments, particularly those that are, I'll call them, unfriendly adversaries to America".

The delay in voting this week could have an effect on how people perceive the bill, Paul said Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation".

"I have never known a man more tenacious and resilient than John McCain", Jeff Flake said.

The Congressional Budget Office hasn't yet released its estimates on the revision of the health care bill, but under the original Senate version, which isn't that different from the new one, roughly 22 million people would lose coverage.

"After all of these years of suffering thru ObamaCare, Republican Senators must come through as they have promised!" the president tweeted before departing Paris, where he attended Bastille Day ceremonies.

McCain has expressed reservations about the bill. Republicans control 52 votes in the Senate and Sens.

According to Kaiser Health News, the GOP plan has such a narrow definition of "disabled" that only 1.2 million of 5-6 million children with special needs would be covered under Medicaid per the GOP bill. "The problem is the substance", the NY senator told reporters.
