Senate delays healthcare vote as McCain recovers from surgery

Senate delays healthcare vote as McCain recovers from surgery

Two Republican senators - Susan Collins of ME and Rand Paul of Kentucky - have already said they will not support a motion to proceed to floor debate on the legislation. Ted Cruz, who has been a solid no vote on the previous versions, would let insurers that sell Obamacare-compliant plans also market bare bones catastrophic policies with appeal to the younger and healthier who don't feel they need the expansive coverage mandated by the Affordable Care Act.

McConnell needs 50 votes, with every Democrat in the Senate prepared to vote no. Rob Portman of OH, who also expressed serious concerns about Medicaid cuts said he is undecided.

"But if we are not able to reach a consensus, the Senate should return to regular order, hold hearings, and receive input from senators of both parties, and produce a bill that finally provides Americans with access to affordable and quality health care".

Moderates have doubts about their leadership's promises that the innovation fund will be enough to help people likely to lose health coverage after the generous federal subsidy for Medicaid expansion phases out by the end of 2024.

Sandoval said he expected to meet privately with Vice President Mike Pence and Health Secretary Tom Price at governors' meetings he is attending in Providence, Rhode Island.

States should take stringent action: Modi on cow vigilantism
Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan has also called an all party meeting at 7pm at the Parliament library building. In the 545-member Lok Sabha, the Congress has 45 members while the TMC has 34.

"You think about 210,000 men, women and children, senior citizens, the drug addicted, the chronically ill", Sandoval said. The CBO found that version of the bill would slash more than $770 billion in Medicaid spending and leave 22 million more uninsured than under current law.

This is not the first time White House officials have made it clear they don't want the GOP health care bill called Trumpcare.

The rewritten package would add $70 billion to the $112 billion McConnell originally sought that states could use to help insurers curb the growth of consumers' out-of-pocket costs.

McConnell has several factors working for him. For years, ACA supporters were subjected to false accusations that the legislation was crafted in secret without input from Republicans.

Underscoring that, the measure would change two formulas to funnel more money to states that expanded their Medicaid programs since late 2015 to additional people.

McCain himself seemed skeptical of the bill's chances.

The GOP-controlled House had bravely and boldly voted for bills to repeal it at least five hundred times. Chris Sloan of the consulting firm Avalere Health said the change would be a significant benefit to large states including Florida, Texas, Georgia and North Carolina.

Sen. John McCain underwent surgery to remove a blood clot above his left eye and will stay in Arizona to recover next week - denying Republicans a key vote in their push to repeal Obamacare, where the GOP already has no room for error. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., right, talk while walking to a meeting on Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday, July 13, 2017.

A close vote has already been predicted to pass the GOP health care bill, with all Democrats and independents coming out against it and some Republicans opposed or undecided.

Still more Arkansans are en route to Washington to impress on Sens.
