GOP senators now oppose health bill, enough to sink it

McConnell, R-Ky., can not pass the bill if he loses more than two Republican votes.

"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.

With only a slim Republican majority in the Senate, any dissent in the GOP could lead to the failure of the legislation, known as the Better Care Act. Erasing Obama's law has been a marquee pledge for Trump and virtually the entire party for years.

"I want to see a bill with heart", he said, confirming a switch from his laudatory statements about the House bill at a Rose Garden ceremony with House GOP leaders last month. "Look forward to making it really special!" "Remember, ObamaCare is dead", Trump tweeted late Thursday. Each state has expanded Medicaid and has a GOP senator.

There are choices and trade-offs made within [the Senate] bill that we should acknowledge. But he said it was time to act.

"We anticipate it will be hundreds of thousands of Oregonians that will be stripped of health care under this proposal in order to get a tax break for wealthy Americans", said Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat. Yet it still would force those states to figure out what to do about the millions of lower-income Americans who used it to gain health coverage.

He is the most vulnerable Republican senator on the ballot in 2018 in a state that, as a result of the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion, made 204,000 people (a 90 percent increase) "newly eligible for coverage, a lot of them childless adults who are working but whose employers do not offer health insurance coverage". Ron Wyden, D-Ore. Republicans view Obama's Affordable Care Act as a costly government intrusion into the private marketplace.

Another senator who has announced that he does not support the current version of the bill, Rand Paul of Kentucky, said he would back it if the Senate reached an impasse on healthcare.

Passing Senate healthcare bill by July 4 "optimistic" Sasse has "nothing to announce" on GOP ObamaCare repeal Manhattan prosecutor: Gun law reciprocity bill "supported, I am sure, by ISIS" MORE (R-Texas) on Sunday said passing the upper chamber's healthcare legislation by the Fourth of July recess is "optimistic".

'We have a very good plan, and we have a few people that are, I think you could say modestly, they're not standing on the roof and screaming, they want to get some points, I think they'll get some points'. We see exactly what you're doing - and you should expect to be held fully accountable.

Heller, who faces re-election in 2018 in the Democratic-leaning state, said on Friday: "I can not support a piece of legislation that takes away insurance from tens of millions of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Nevadans". Susan Collins, R-Maine, said the centrist has some misgivings about the bills as well.

He added: "Simply put, if there's a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family-this bill will do you harm".

"Small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, can not change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation", he wrote in a Facebook post Thursday.

The House's first crack at a repeal-and-replace bill was so bad that Speaker Paul Ryan had to yank it or risk a humiliating defeat.

The AHCA would slash almost $900 million from Medicaid and provide states dramatically fewer federal dollars for Medicaid programs.

It would also provide more generous tax credits for the purchase of private health insurance for people between zero and 350 percent of the federal poverty level based on income.

Trump bemoaned the lack of bipartisanship in Washington, having belittled prominent Democrats himself.

Obama law: Requires all insurance plans to cover services from 10 broad "essential services", including hospitalization, office visits, prescriptions, maternity and childbirth, substance abuse treatment, rehabilitation, and preventive services, including birth control at no additional charge for women.

Currently, the House and Senate replacement bills also focus more on the mechanics of providing health insurance than on reducing the nation's overall health-care spending.

For the next two years, the Senate would also provide money that insurers use to help lower out-of-pocket costs for millions of lower income people.
