'Lets Not Rush This': Senators Urge Health Care Vote Delay

Dean Heller also came out against it. "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.

Both Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), and Sen. A handful of Republicans senators have already come out against the bill in its current form, and with so little time to make amendments and so many voices in opposition, the BCRA might not make it to Trump's desk.

Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell smiles as he leaves the chamber after announcing the release of the Republicans' health care bill.

"We also heard the House bill was never going to pass, we heard this guy could never get elected".

Significantly, President Donald Trump's assessment of the House Republican version of the bill agreed with criticisms by Democratic Party opponents, including Clinton and Obama.

Senate Republicans could have at least tried to replace Obamacare with a totally different program design, to justify all their effort and hate directed at the ACA. "All for the objective of a big tax cut for people who are doing really well financially." said Schatz. Seventy-four percent of those polled, meanwhile, said they have a favorable opinion of Medicaid. McConnell's bill nearly certainly will not, which may explain his haste. Al Franken, a Democrat. Assuming no Democratic senator votes in favor of the bill, the Kentucky senator can afford to lose only two Republican senators and still pass the bill.

Paul added, "And it's a false, sort of over-promising to say, 'Oh, yes, insurance premiums are going to go down but we're keeping 10 of the 12 mandates that caused the prices to go up.' It's a foolish notion to promise something you can't provide".

Angry protesters rallied outside Sen. He wants a vote before people realize his bill is hazardous to their health. Not only would millions lose their health care coverage, but a million would lose their jobs and hundreds of small hospitals and nursing homes could disappear.

Although the Senate bill includes a waiver process for states to opt out of most of Obamacare's regulations, it does not allow states to deviate from Obamacare's rules forbidding insurers from treating any customers differently on the basis of pre-existing conditions.

"We have ideas. You have ideas", said Mr. Schumer, New York Democrat.

Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) held a separate event blasting the measure Friday, CBS2's Alice Gainer reported. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!" he wrote. And Senate Republicans say their plan attempts only to slow the growth of Medicaid, not de-fund it.

"I can not imagine that these very fine Republican Senators would allow the American people to suffer a broken ObamaCare any longer!" he wrote. The former Republican governor of Alaska Sarah Palin suggested at the time that the ACA, popularly known as Obamacare, included provisions that would involve government bureaucrats selecting elderly people or special needs people who "deserve" health care.

The clock is ticking. He also claimed former President Barack Obama only called it "mean" after he did. Trump said on Saturday on his personal Twitter account.

A former Obama aide told the Washington Post "we sort of choked" with whether to disclose the meddling and how to punish Russian Federation.

"Call off this bill right now and let's sit down and start working", Manchin said.

Trump responded Friday using his favorite social media platform.
