Chris Evans shows support for Jimmy Kimmel's health care fight

Chris Evans shows support for Jimmy Kimmel's health care fight

Despite last minute efforts to save the legislation crafted by Senators Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), the votes aren't there.

In addition, 46 percent of voters said they would be less likely to vote for a member of Congress if he or she voted for Graham-Cassidy, while 23 percent would be more likely.

The Graham-Cassidy legislation, which was expected to be voted on next week in the Senate, would get rid of some mandates of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, but for the most part would put its taxes in place and redistribute the money to states in the form of block grants. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said Friday that she's leaning against the bill.

Trump also called Cassidy a "class act who really cares about people" and "doesn't lie-just wants to help people" in a tweet seemingly addressing Kimmel's battle over the bill.

Republican lawmakers are facing a September 30 deadline to use the Fiscal Year 2017 budget to repeal and replace Obamacare, and the chances of them passing the latest health care bill appear slim, leaving some wonder what their next move will be. So not only would people lose access to health care that they need, it would be a devastating blow to the community. Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana introduced Graham-Cassidy, a bill that would transform the Medicaid funding and federal subsidies of the ACA into state block grants that would expire by 2026, CNN reports.

Carolina Panthers vs New Orleans Saints
On the opening drive, 12 of the first 13 plays were either a run by one of those two backs or a reception by Christian McCaffrey . Not being able to victimize a Saints defense that a week ago gave up more than 500 yards to the Patriots has to be concerning.

"All of these groups populated by doctors say this healthcare bill is bad", said Kimmel.

McCain, who is battling brain cancer, provided the decisive tally to kill the Republicans' "skinny repeal" measure in an early morning vote July 29.

An emotional TV advertisement featuring the mother of a grown woman with cerebral palsy is set to air urging Senate Republicans not to vote for the GOP health care bill.

"This is an opportunity to say to the states, we're going to let you be responsible for devising a system for people in your state that meets the needs of people in your state", Republican U.S. Sen. "Unfortunately the Graham-Cassidy bill has derailed that effort at least temporarily".

"I take no pleasure in announcing my position", McCain continued.

North Korea quake detected, and Seoul says it's the real thing
Seoul's Meteorological Administration assessed the quake as natural, while China called the earthquake a "suspected explosion".

"I know Rand Paul and I think he may find a way to get there for the good of the Party!"

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has been a defiant voice against the legislation for some time now, labeling it Obamacare Lite and Obamacare 2.0.

"The Graham-Cassidy proposal represents a significant shift of costs from the federal government to states", wrote Kent.

Without Collins' vote, Republicans would not have the 50 votes needed to repeal the ACA, better known as Obamacare.
