Senate Republican leaders delay healthcare bill vote

Senate Republican leaders delay healthcare bill vote

Its evaluation could complicate plans for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who wants to hold a vote on the legislation this week. McConnell's tone was matter-of-fact, according those present, yet his action amounts to a stinging setback for the longtime Senate leader who had developed the legislation largely in secret as Trump hung back in deference.

"I think it's probably the biggest signature issue we have, and it's the biggest promise we've ever made in the modern era", Ryan said. Most wore grim expressions. "Consequently we will not be on the bill this week, but we're still working toward getting at least 50 people in a comfortable place", he said, noting that lawmakers would soon be meeting with White House officials on their health care plan. Under the Senate bill, that person would pay $6,500, partly because insurers would be able to charge older adults more. Lisa Murkowski, said they were concerned about the bill but neither said they were ready to vote against debating it.

In the folksy analysis of John Cornyn of Texas, the Senate GOP vote-counter: "Every time you get one bullfrog in the wheelbarrow, another one jumps out".

When asked if Congress should allow Obamacare to "crash and burn" if the Senate fails to pass a bill, Enzi said, "That's not my approach". Democrats are unanimously opposed, and in recent days they have stepped up protests, delivering speeches on the Senate floor for hours and holding vigils on the Capitol steps. On Facebook last week, Lee wrote that the Senate bill "doesn't even significantly reform American health care", and said he'd settle for language letting states and individuals completely opt out of Obama's law.

That is a problem for Republican Sen.

The motion is normally a routine procedural move, but its chances were growing increasingly grim due to the Republican intraparty division.

Minutes after the report's release, three GOP senators threatened to oppose beginning debate. That infuriated McConnell, who called White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus to label the attacks "beyond stupid".

Other Maine newspapers also warned of the results of the CBO report. By Tuesday morning, ads had spread to radio and television in Heller's home state, where he faces a tough re-election fight next year.

"Learning about the proposed deep cuts in Medicaid passed by the House of Representatives, the American people looked to the Senate". So it's quite possible that the Senate Republicans can rise from this week's setback.

According to an Associated Press analysis, the Republicans' health bill "cuts taxes by almost $1 trillion over the next decade, mostly for corporations and the richest families in America".

Comey's story 'may have changed' when he heard about tapes
Yesterday, for example, Trump lied about former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson's congressional testimony from the day before. Comey made no public statements between his firing May 9 and his testimony before Congress June 8.

The CBO report says under the bill that 22 million people fewer would have insurance by 2026 than under Obamacare - one million less than the House bill's figure - but the budget deficit would be reduced. He says the Senate bill would cost the state $7 billion. The number of holdouts on Tuesday, when news broke that McConnell would delay the vote, was several times that.

New analysis shows that millionaires would get tax cuts averaging $52,000 a year from the Senate Republicans' health bill.

Mr Trump has called the House bill "mean" and prodded senators to produce a package with more "heart".

The failure to vote before the recess came one day after the Congressional Budget Office said it would throw 22 million Americans off the insurance rolls, while granting tax cuts to the wealthy.

It would let states ease Mr Obama's requirements that insurers cover certain specified services such as substance abuse treatments.

He cited several reasons for the impact, including the loss in 2020 of $600 million in safety net funding that was part of a Medicaid waiver the Baker administration negotiated with former President Barack Obama's administration; the elimination starting in 2023 of federal matching funds to cover those in MA who received coverage under the expansion of Medicaid; a cap on overall federal matching funds; and a provision in the bill that he wrote would, "with no justification", shift billions of dollars in matching funds from higher wage states like MA to lower wage states. As a result of the surcharge, it said, two million fewer people would enroll, and the people most likely to be deterred would be those who are healthy.
