Where key US Republican senators stand on healthcare bill

Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released a video discussing the Senate Republican health care bill.

Many top health groups said they tried to offer their input on the bill but were turned down.

At least three Republican senators need to oppose the Senate bill to slow this high-speed train. They said the measure missed delivering a GOP promise to Americans "to repeal Obamacare and lower their health care costs". Coloradans deserve a full debate and an open process when it comes to reforming something that affects one-sixth of our economy. Three of them - Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, John Kasich of OH, and Brian Sandoval of Nevada - signed a bipartisan letter last week raising concerns to Senate leaders closing in on their own bill.

Trump, who said on Wednesday he wanted a health plan "with heart", told reporters at the White House that healthcare legislation would require "a little negotiation, but it's going to be very good".

Here is Obama's argument, which was laid out on Facebook, annotated with what we found eyebrow-raising.

The Senate bill would provide money to stabilize the individual insurance market, allotting $15 billion a year in 2018 and 2019 and $10 billion a year in 2020 and 2021.

I hope Mitch McConnell listened to what the demonstrators had to say outside his office today. "Because Obamacare is a direct attack on the middle class, and American families deserve better than its failing status quo". It's about the character of our country - who we are, and who we aspire to be. Speaking on the Senate floor, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer asserted that the Senate's version would end Medicaid "as we know it" by decreasing federal support for the programme even more than the House bill, which cut it by more than $800bn, he said. They were Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas.

Earlier on Thursday, US Senate Republicans introduced a healthcare measure that aims to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare.

Sen. Marco Rubio (Florida) - "Senator Rubio will decide how to vote on health care on the basis of how it impacts Florida". Rob Portman of OH and. It also is going to need to pass the muster of more moderate senators like Maine's Susan Collins and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski.

Obama was more than skeptical.

"Simply put, if there's a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family - this bill will do you harm", the former president wrote. He said "small tweaks" during the upcoming debate "cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation".

The US House of Representatives approved its version of the bill, dubbed the American Health Care Act, on May 4. Though Trump lauded its passage in a Rose Garden ceremony, he called the House measure "mean" last week. That's not my opinion, but rather the conclusion of all objective analyses, from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which found that 23 million Americans would lose insurance, to America's doctors, nurses, and hospitals on the front lines of our health care system.

To read the health care bill, visit the U.S. Senate. There is uncertainty over whether abortion-related provisions will meet Senate rules, but those provisions could be included in another Senate bill. The program now gives states all the money needed to cover eligible recipients and procedures. A Reuters/Ipsos poll this month found almost 60 percent of adults believed the House bill would make insurance costlier for low-income Americans and people with pre-existing conditions.

The bill would also let states apply waivers to disregard some mandates of the Affordable Care Act, like the law's ban on insurance companies charging higher premiums for people with pre-existing medical conditions. "Children under 26 remain on the parents' plans". Governors in states that expanded Medicaid are wary of a bill reveale.

Despite all this trepidation, some Republican senators gave their outspoken support for the bill.
