Trump optimistic on health care; some doubtful

Sen. Susan Collins of ME says she thinks getting the votes needed in the Senate this week to pass a Republican bill to replace the Affordable Care Act could be very hard.

Sanders added: "There is no way on God's Earth that this bill should be passed this week".

"We're going to have insurance for everybody", he said.

He urged Republicans to work with Democrats by "stop sabotaging Obamacare" and giving up the effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

"What I'm telling you is the system, the plan that we would put in place, would not allow individuals to fall through the cracks", Price told CNN's Dana Bash.

Man catches teen falling from park ride: 'It's OK to let go'
It is unclear what caused the girl to fall from the two-person gondola, which was also occupied by an unidentified man. Raw vision has emerged of a teen who tumbled into a crowd gathered more than seven metres below to catch her.

The president said he thinks Republicans in the Senate are doing enough to push through the bill. "I think they have at best a 50/50 chance of passing this bill". And McConnell has done little to woo the health care stakeholders who were assiduously courted by Obama from his first months in office as he fought for his legislation. Unless those holdouts can be swayed, their numbers are more than enough to torpedo the measure developed in private by US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and deliver a bitter defeat for the president.

Trump toned down the Fox News reporter's question, saying, "I don't see him leading it".

The bill was introduced by Thune with the backing of ranking Democrat Bill Nelson of Florida and Aviation Subcommittee leaders Roy Blunt, R-Mo., and Maria Cantwell, D-Wash.

"I can not imagine that these very fine Republican Senators would allow the American people to suffer a broken ObamaCare any longer!" Conway cited 113 House Democrats signing on to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders' health care bill as evidence that an increasingly large number of opposition members recognize the imminent implosion of Obamacare.

But we have a very good plan.

WASHINGTON-Senate Republican leaders pushing for a vote this week on a bill to rework the USA health-care system juggled objections from all corners of the GOP caucus over the weekend, with issues such as Medicaid and insurance regulations remaining key holdups.

Johnson framed his call to delay the Senate vote on the American Health Care Act as a bid for transparency, arguing that it would give the public more time to see what the bill really entails.

Four Senate Republicans came out against the health care bill draft - which was written behind closed doors - when it was revealed on Thursday.

The Connecticut Democrat conceded that both sides had used the "nuclear option" to change precedents to eliminate the need for supermajorities on nominations, but legislation should be a different matter.

Senate Republicans are painting the new plan as less austere than the House bill which, according to a forecast by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), would leave 23 million fewer people insured than under current law. They've been able to get treatment and support services through Medicaid.

The Theory Of Evolution Is Being Banned In Turkish Schools

There are headlines out there claiming Paul is open to voting for a partial repeal of Obamacare. He needs the support of at least 50 of the 52 Republican senators.
