Trump calls on Senate to end filibuster after healthcare defeat

Trump calls on Senate to end filibuster after healthcare defeat”

Getting rid of the two taxes would have reduced revenue by $231 billion over a decade, according to estimates from the Congressional Budget Office and Joint Committee on Taxation. He was at a dinner with a few Republican senators, where he was telling them that they would look like "dopes" if they could not pass the legislation, per Politico.

However, CBO was not going to have time to analyze the Cruz amendment by Monday, CBS News' Nancy Cordes reports.

Breaking down the changes for Americans now on Medicaid, Price detailed a long-term plan.

Instead, Rubio said young, healthy people can not afford the "astronomical" premiums or high co-payments even with subsidies. This is an abandonment of the heart of what Republicans promised people for eight years, and not to be able to deliver on it?

Meanwhile, Obamacare-supporting activists are keeping the phones jammed in Senate offices while major stakeholders (insurers, doctors, nurses, hospitals, AARP and several Republican governors) lobby to defeat the health care bill.

McConnell said Tuesday that a vote will be held "in the coming days".

Meanwhile, with some GOP lawmakers' key priorities like boosting funding for the opioid crisis now also stalled, Republicans who were planning to vote for the Senate health care bill are looking at their colleagues bewildered by the latest state of play.

Sens. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, and Susan Collins, R-Maine, plan to oppose that motion. And we need a number of votes.

Sen. John McCain's best pal in the Senate says he's "sounding strong" after surgery to remove a blood clot above his eye.

"It's easy to say, 'I want to go down these paths, '" Claxton said, "but once you go down them, they're pretty hard to back their way out of". It's one thing to say, "the vast majority of the benefits of the tax cuts go to the top".

The vote wrangling efforts in favor of the BCRA had generally been focused on Republican senators who represented states that expanded Medicaid under the ACA and were concerned about the new bill would undo that expansion and make deeper, additional cuts to the program that provides healthcare to the working poor, disabled and elderly.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said he "regrets" that Republicans can't reach an agreement on repealing and immediately replacing Obamacare on July 18, and said the party will pursue a repeal effort now and replacement legislation later.

Geoff and Tamara wrote: "McConnell had been in a rush to get the bill to a vote, in part because it was thought more time wouldn't help and could hurt the chance for passage". And millions more will retain insurance with greater financial burden due to the reduced premium support in the Republican bills.

The Health Care Select Sector SPDR (XLV), iShares U.S. Medical Devices (IHI), and iShares U.S. Pharmaceuticals (IHE) have not moved so far Tuesday morning, but the SPDR S&P Biotech (XBI) has fallen 0.22% and iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) has declined 0.35% in pre-market trading.

I can think of a least two fundamental problems.

Approximately 177 million Americans receive insurance through employers. "Stay tuned!", he added.

McConnell spoke of the potential of moving to a scaled-back, bipartisan version of health legislation last month when an earlier version of his GOP-only bill collapsed because it lacked enough support.

All of this should not be so complicated, and as frustrated as I get with some conservatives who insist on a flawless bill or nothing at all, the real problem here is the moderates - people like Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Dean Heller, Lindsey Graham, Bill Cassidy and John McCain.
