McCain Says No to GOP Health Care Bill

McCain Says No to GOP Health Care Bill”

After Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) put the Republican ObamaCare replacement bill on "life support", Maine's governor pressed his senior senator to vote in favor of the bill, Mike Emanuel reported.

An accompanying story did not immediately reveal more of what she said, except her remarks that she is leaning against it, despite the bill's support from Maine Gov. Paul LePage. It also cuts the ACA's unpopular individual and employer mandates and shifts the allocation of Medicaid dollars.

As some of the most powerful forces in state and federal government bear down on her over the impending health care vote, Sen. If McCain is a "no" vote, then the fate of the bill could rest with Sen. "The premiums would be so high they would be unaffordable".

Estimates from outside groups haven't been kind to the Graham-Cassidy plan have said the opposite. King, an Independent, is against it. "I really urge [Collins] to really take a hard look [at the bill]".

"We have language in there that says, 'A governor may decide he wants to try, or she wants to try to lower health care costs and can come up with a plan to do so, but whatever plan they have must make sure that those with preexisting conditions have access to affordable and adequate coverage, '" Cassidy said.

Republicans must approve the bill by September 30 or lose the ability to do so with a simple majority. With unanimous Democratic opposition and 52 seats, the GOP can only afford to lose two votes - Pence would provide the tie-breaking tally if the count is 50-50. Rand Paul already opposes it and a third Republican no vote would kill the bid. His opposition has caused frustration among GOP colleagues and drawn the ire of President Donald Trump, who said those who goes against the party line will be known as "the Republican who saved Obamacare".
