Uphill Battle: Senate Health Care Bill

Uphill Battle: Senate Health Care Bill

Senate leaders can only afford to lose two GOP votes.

On Friday, Sanders tweeted that thousands would die if the Senate passed its version of the health care bill as it now exists. That's just slightly less than the CBO's estimate for the House bill, which clocked in at 23 million additional uninsured. "We will not be on the bill this week, but we're still working toward getting at least 50 people in a comfortable place".

"I will say I have so many fundamental problems with the bill, that have been confirmed by the CBO report, that it's hard for me to see how any tinkering is going to satisfy my fundamental and deep concerns about the impact of the bill", Collins said.

The White House criticized the Congressional Budget Office on Monday, hitting the nonpartisan federal agency for its analysis of the Senate's proposed health care legislation. Senator John Cornyn said previously, "I expect to have the votes to get this done and yes we will vote this week".

At issue are far right conservative senators who don't think the bill cuts services enough and senators from more moderate states who fear the drastic cuts in the bill will harm them at home with the voters.

GOP Sen. Susan Collins of ME, a swing vote, said Monday night she would vote "no" on the motion to proceed, tweeting that the Senate bill does not "fix the flaws" of Obamacare. He's been aiming at winning Senate passage this week, before a weeklong July 4 recess that leaders worry opponents will use to weaken support for the legislation. Trump has called the House version approved last month "mean" and told Senate Republicans to approve legislation with more "heart".

"The other side is saying all sorts of things before they even knew what the bill was".

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who met with Trump earlier in the day, said he was encouraged by the president's willingness to negotiate on the measure and hoped leadership would do the same.
