Dozens Stand with Schumer Against Senate's Health Care Bill

The Senate Republicans' plan puts a lid on that by rolling back the Obama-era expansion of the program and then granting states a set amount of money for each person enrolled.

Second, how do they think it will play out politically when the blame for the exchanges' implosion shifts from the Democrats to the Republicans?

Throughout the post, Obama said many would be harmed if the bill made it through the Senate.

With a 52-seat majority, Republicans can afford to lose only two votes, as Vice President Mike Pence breaks a 50-50 tie. Medicaid is a state program but it relies on funds from the federal government to support those who need the services. "Remember, ObamaCare is dead", Trump tweeted late Thursday. But he said it was time to act. "The stark reality remains that if we do nothing, Obamacare will fail, and Americans will suffer", Republican Johnny Isakson said in a statement. They said GOP characterizations of the law as failing are wrong and said the Republican plan would boot millions off coverage and leave others facing higher out-of-pocket costs. Ron Wyden, D-Ore.

"We agreed on the need to free Americans from Obamacare's mandates".

In an interview with Fox News Channel, Trump was asked about the four conservatives opposing the bill. "We'll have to see".

The protesters shouted chants like "don't touch Medicaid, save our liberty".

Unlike the House bill, which bases its subsidies for private insurance on age, the Senate bill uses age and income. "And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, can not change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation", Obama wrote.

U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine said the Senate Republicans kept the health care bill completely secret from the American people.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) will release its forecast on the Senate draft next week. Republican senators from states that expanded Medicaid, such as Ohio's Rob Portman, want to extend that phase-out to seven years.

His Democrat counterpart from Wisconsin added she had concerns with fewer people being covered. The Senate plan, however, would keep Obamacare's subsidies to help people pay for individual coverage..

Those waivers would allow state to drop benefits required by Obamacare like maternity coverage, mental health care and prescription drug coverage.

He said it provides more money for hospitals that serve low-income residents who don't have insurance and provides new funding for opioid abuse issues. Trump has been threatening to discontinue those payments, and some insurance companies have cited uncertainty as a reason they are abandoning some markets and boosting premiums.
