Trump scrambles for GOP health votes; budget score looms

Trump scrambles for GOP health votes; budget score looms”

Sen. Rand Paul, one of the key Republicans senators in the ongoing health care battle, said on Sunday that his party has "promised too much" with trying to fix the health care system and assuring that the cost of premiums will be lowered.

"It would be so great if the Democrats and Republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it and come up with something that everybody's happy with", the president said.

"I think they have, at best, a 50-50 chance of passing this bill", Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY said on ABC.

Kasich said he opposes the Senate bill and called on Republicans to change it. And if it were the greatest bill ever proposed in mankind, we wouldn't get a vote and that's a awful thing.

The Democrat reiterated her opposition in a statement to The Associated Press on Sunday, saying the health care bill being pushed by Senate Republicans is a "monstrosity". Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. He said Democrats "are doing everything we can to fight this bill because it's so devastating for the middle class". So I've been encouraging leadership, the White House, anybody I can talk to for quite some time, let's not rush this process. "I want to see a bill with heart". "They are causing people to have a lower quality of actual health care". He said the Republicans' proposed legislation hurts the poor and those with pre-existing conditions.

As negotiations within the deeply divided group of Republican senators enter their decisive final stages, Trump professed to be tentatively confident that agreement would be reached. That means that Republican supporters of the legislation can only lose two Republican votes, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a tie-breaking vote if the Senate splits 50-50.

Collins said another seven to eight senators including herself remain troubled about the possible Medicaid cuts.

Senate Republicans are painting the new plan as less austere than the House bill which, according to a forecast by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), would leave 23 million fewer people insured than under current law.

Collins spoke on ABC's "This Week".

In a Twitter comment Saturday, Trump voiced optimism about passage of the Republican plan, saying, "I can not imagine that these very fine Republican Senators would allow the American people to suffer a broken ObamaCare any longer!"

President Donald Trump says he doesn't think congressional Republicans are "that far off" on passing a health overhaul to replace what he's calling "the dead carcass of Obamacare". "I can not support a piece of legislation that takes insurance away from tens of millions of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Nevadans", Heller said.

But the forces arrayed against the Republican push to dismantle former president Obama's signature domestic achievement are formidable.
