Republican Health Care Plan

Handover The repeal of Obamacare was a key Trump campaign pledge

"They're very anxious to help", McConnell said.

McConnell (R-Ky) said healthcare is a "big complicated subject".

Democratic senators followed the Republican briefing and slammed the GOP plan. On several scores, Solomon said she can't think of a state that fares worse, in either the Senate or and the House bill, than Alaska. At 4:03 p.m., most Republican senators were already sitting around tables with white table cloths and black bunting. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, one of the bill's critics, said of the delay. But she said it will be "extremely difficult" for the White House to be able to find a narrow path to attract both conservatives and moderates. I think their coverage numbers - there's more to the story than the number implies. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn. "We're actually close to an agreement, but there are some important differences remaining".

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, Texas Republican, said leaders weren't ready to announce changes to the bill, though predicted they would prevail.

SenateGOP leaders said Tuesday they will charge toward a health care vote this week despite mounting concerns from within their own party. With this, he has become the fifth republican to come out in opposition to the current draft version of healthcare bill. In addition to removing millions from coverage and increasing premiums, the legislation will also likely reinstate annual and lifetime benefits limits and allow insurers to reject individuals with pre-existing medical conditions.


"I would not bet against Mitch McConnell", his House counterpart, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., told reporters. "This bill will drastically increase the cost of coverage for older, working-class ME people; put health insurance out of reach altogether for many others; and significantly gut Medicaid, forcing states to choose between serving the elderly or the disabled - all to give tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans". But three GOP senators are threatening to vote against a procedural motion to begin debate, a vote expected Wednesday.

The CBO attributes this to the bill's lower subsidies, which it said will entice fewer people to buy insurance. Shelley Moore Capito are the latest Republicans to say that they oppose the bill.

Lee and other conservatives have favored a fuller repeal of Obama's statute than the Senate bill would enact.

The Maine senator said she wishes Trump had attempted to pass legislation on issues that could have bipartisan support - like infrastructure - before trying to tackle "a politically divisive and technically complex issue like health care". "States are ultimately going to have to ration [their allotment] and say, 'Well, we only get so much from Medicaid, therefore we can not insure more disabled people, more elderly people.' It is frightening for those on low income", Mosman said. About $33 billion of this would go to tax cuts conservatively averaging $7 million every year to each of the 400 highest-income families in the country. The CBO said the bill would reduce the federal deficit by $321 billion over the next decade. In 2013, the CBO estimated that 24 million people would have coverage under Obamacare by 2016.
