Here Is Every Republican Senator Who Opposes the Health Care Bill

The GOP-led Senate yesterday released a bill it hopes will repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

When it comes to managing Republicans' best interests, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, rarely loses.

Barack Obama has condemned the Republican's new healthcare plan, which was released on Thursday.

The recent rally in hospital and HMO stocks means the Senate Republicans' health-care bill will not pass, CNBC's Jim Cramer said Friday.

A Republican senator up for re-election next year just got some bad news about the Senate GOP health care bill. He said he doubted Democrats would help.

The Republican bill aims to deliver on one of Trump's central campaign promises to "repeal and replace" the 2010 law passed under Obama that expanded coverage to millions of Americans. "Well, they're also four good guys, four friends of mine, and I think that they'll probably get there", he said.

Obamacare has been credited with expanding health coverage to many more Americans. The Affordable Care Act took a year and a half to craft, with much debate adn amendments at the request of Republicans.

The draft text announced by the Senate this week was received with even less enthusiasm. Elizabeth Warren of MA called the tax cuts for the wealthy "blood money" - the bill's fate is out of their hands. Numerous companies help manage state Medicaid programs, meaning their profits can be hurt by those cuts as well. It would also lower the annual income limit for receiving subsidies to cover insurance premiums to 350% of the poverty level, or about $42,000 for an individual, from 400%.

Former Indiana State Health commissioner Woody Myers says the bill worsens an already-weakened health care situation after large insurers this week left Indiana's Obamacare marketplace - something Myers blames federal Republicans for.

"I'd like her to come out strongly in support of improving health care and improving access for all Mainers", said Postman.

"The Medicaid cuts are even more draconian that the House bill was, though they take effect more gradually than the House bill did", Pearson says.

The bills would also end the Obamacare prohibition on paying for over-the-counter medications with funds from tax-advantaged health accounts.

In a joint statement, the four senators said, "Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor". Policy experts said that would keep more young, healthy people out of the market and likely create a sicker patient pool.

"They'd like to get certain changes". It sort of peels off the Obamacare bumper sticker, and then spray paints over the dents - the parts of the bill that nobody liked - in particular, the individual mandate. "The bill that's before the Senate doesn't meet that test".

Mr Trump's role is expected to become more pronounced in coming days as the vote nears. In California, Medi-Cal covers almost 14 million, including half of the state's children and two-thirds of seniors in nursing homes.
