GOP Senators Call for More Time to Debate, Change Health Care Bill

Sandoval said Medicaid expansion provided coverage to about 210,000 people in Nevada.

In a separate statement, Paul said he would vote against the bill "in its current form, but I remain open to negotiation. Make sure we're taken care of here in the state of Nevada", Heller said.

Both our senators are included in the elite 13 GOP senators working in complete secrecy to produce this bill.

"I think they have, at best, a 50-50 chance of passing this bill", Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY said on ABC. "After the House passed a very similar bill he called it mean and unfortunately the Senate bill is even meaner".

While neither of Louisiana's Republican U.S. senators has committed to back the Senate GOP health plan, advocacy groups seeking to keep the current federal law intact have their focus squarely on only one of them: physician Bill Cassidy. He noted that there "isn't anything in this bill that would lower premiums", and that to say otherwise would be a "lie". Or about "moderate Republicans" who will vote against it. Already, Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen is preparing to challenge him.

McConnell, R-Ky., released the bill Thursday after weeks of closed-door meetings searching for middle ground between conservative senators seeking an aggressive repeal of Obama's statute and centrists warning about going too far. Mike Lee (R., Utah) and Sen. He said any repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act would have "insurance for everybody", telling the Washington Post, "there was a philosophy in some circles that if you can't pay for it, you don't get it".

Johnson, elected in 2010 running against Obamacare, also said on NBC's "Meet The Press" program that the debate on revising health care has not been based on facts. "People aren't out here because it's super fun to be in the spitting rain, protesting for hours, people are out here because it's literally life or death", Vashti Bandi of South Philadelphia said. "These are our friends, these are our families, and these are our neighbors".

"I don't think we're that far off..." In addition, the proposed changes to Medicaid financing for people who were newly covered under Obamacare and those in the standard Medicaid program are dramatic.

As Senate Republicans aim to force a vote on their version of Trumpcare - a bill that was written in secret, without public hearings, despite the fact that it will reshape one-sixth of the US economy and impact the lives of millions of Americans - most people have been left in the dark.
