Republicans told to unite and kill Obamacare

Republicans told to unite and kill Obamacare

The campaign will run in congressional districts in 15 states.

And some GOP senators are saying the House bill will be looked at in depth before it comes to a vote. They cited concerns about potential higher costs for older people and those with pre-existing conditions, along with cuts to Medicaid. Rand Paul, say it amounts to a new entitlement program, while Democrats and some moderate Republicans worry the aid isn't enough.

No one expects a new bill to be written quickly, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has started a process for producing one.

What happens to the House's plan to overhaul Medicaid spending may be the most critical issue, says Molly Reynolds, a fellow in Governance Studies with the left-leaning Brookings Institution. Such a scenario would then force the House and Senate to work together to forge a compromise bill that both houses can support.

"That's the way legislation used to be passed", said Blunt, after he and other GOP senators made similar remarks last week.

Mr Obama defended his signature achievement in Boston on Sunday night while accepting the John F Kennedy Profile in Courage Award.

White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday morning, said, "The bill that passed out of the House is most likely not going to be the bill that is put in front of the president".

In his remarks, Obama said he hopes that lawmakers recognize "it actually doesn't take a lot of courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential".

Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, a former House member, also suggested Sunday that the Senate will crafts its own bill but signaled an openness to the lower chamber's efforts. Obama urged lawmakers to use "courage" to protect health care for poorer Americans, a rare public comment on public policy since leaving office.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of ME, a moderate Republican whose vote will be critical in getting a bill to Trump's desk, voiced concerns about potential higher costs for older people and those with pre-existing conditions.

"They are going to be living in the emergency rooms again", potentially driving up health care costs", Kasich predicted.

As CBS2's Ali Bauman reports, a 13-member working group within the Senate will make changes to the president's healthcare reform bill.

In a bill that cleared the House last week, states could seek waivers so insurers don't have to charge people who see their insurance lapse the same if they have a pre-existing condition.

Collins added that she would like to a bipartisan group of Senators take on health care, including Democrats who acknowledge problems with Obamacare and "Republicans who also want to make sure that we're not reducing coverage and we're giving flexibility".

"We want to get it right, not get it fast and that's the - that's the focus", she said. States taking that step would have to establish government-operated insurance programs for expensive patients called high-risk pools.
