Presidential debate: Trump, Obama clash over health care

Presidential debate: Trump, Obama clash over health care

US Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, of NY, said Democrats would be working hard to defeat the bill, having already made clear they would co-operate with Republicans if they agreed to drop a repeal of the Affordable Care Act and instead work to improve it. "I don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to review the Senate bill", Johnson said.

The legislation would phase out extra federal money that more than 30 states receive for expanding Medicaid to additional low-income earners.

The Senate health care measure drew immediate fire from centrist and conservative Republican senators and industry officials. After the first four Republicans raised concerns, President Trump told "Fox & Friends" there's a narrow path to success.

Trump said he thought Republicans in the US Senate were doing enough to push through the bill and criticised Democrats for their opposition.

"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.

Collins said based on what she knows about the inflation rate, she expects the Senate bill to make even deeper Medicaid cuts than the House bill passed earlier this year.

SCOTT HORSLEY, BYLINE: Senate Republicans can only afford to lose two votes if they hope to pass their bill.

"It's going to be very hard to get me to a yes", he said, noting that conservative Republican senators would likely be reluctant to add spending back to the measure.

"I'm undecided", he said on CBS' "Face the Nation".

Schumer said the Republicans shouldn't expect any support from the opposition.

In addition to disputes over costs and insurance rates for Americans, the health care debate also features the most public duel yet between President Trump and predecessor Barack Obama - including an argument over the use of the word "mean".

Presidential counsellor Kellyanne Conway emphasized Sunday that the Senate health care bill, otherwise known as "Trumpcare", does not cut Medicaid funding. "Last year we had 6.5 million Americans pay close to $3 billion dollars in taxes to the IRS just to opt out of Obamacare".

That could make coverage unaffordable for many people with medical conditions, said Donna Friedsam, health policy programs director at UW-Madison's Population Health Institute.

In a tweet last week after Georgia's special House election, Trump also criticized House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer.

Trump has endorsed the bill, and Democrats say they will take every opportunity to link the legislation to an unpopular president. They want to get some points.

An analysis from the Congressional Budget Office is due as soon as Monday and vote by the full Senate is planned for Thursday.

"It's going to be a good bill", Trump said in a separate Fox News interview to air on Sunday. "I frankly would like more days to consider this".
