Senate Republicans plan to release revised version of health care bill

He recalled the tangled legislative process under Obamacare, pointing to the "Cornhusker kickback" as proof that it took a lot of work for Democrats to get enough votes to pass the Affordable Care Act.

In a strongly worded statement that reflects the "unanimous" views of its board, the National Association of Medicaid Directors said the Republican health care bill would be "a transfer of risk, responsibility, and cost to the states of historic proportions". More broadly, when we looked at the data from all the large studies in our set, we found that, for every three hundred to eight hundred people who gained coverage, one life was ultimately saved per year.

"Medicaid has been a real victor for states", said Joe Antos, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank. But without the support of Paul, Cruz, Lee, Johnson and Heller, passage of the bill in its current form is almost impossible, unless Republicans can manage to draw Democratic votes, which is highly unlikely. And polls indicate that recipients like Medicaid more than private coverage, even with the difficulties finding doctors who take Medicaid, because the program provides them with better financial protection.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has very little margin for error in rounding up votes. He is one of four GOP senators to say they are opposed it but are open to negotiations, which could put the measure in immediate jeopardy.

An outside political group aligned with the White House, America First Policies, said it is planning an advertising campaign targeting Heller for his opposition to the bill. We have no public hospitals but rather the costs of uncompensated care are baked into the rates set by the Health Services Cost Regulatory Commission.

Trump was interviewed by "Fox & Friends", while Collins appeared on ABC's "This Week".

President Donald Trump signed a bill into law Friday that will make it easier for the Department of Veterans Affairs to fire employees, part of a push to overhaul an agency that is struggling to serve millions of military vets.

The Republican health-care bill would achieve its proposed cuts to Medicaid by capping the federal funds sent to states.

"We agreed on the need to free Americans from Obamacare's mandate so Americans are no longer forced to buy insurance they don't need or can't afford", McConnell said on the Senate floor Thursday.

Washington Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell is against the legislation.

"It would be a very, very sad day for Republicans if she stepped down", Trump said.

At least five Senate Republicans have expressed opposition the bill in its current form to repeal and replace Obamacare, but Mr. Santorum said he believes the conservatives would change their minds.

"I am not a reporter, and I am not a lobbyist, so I've seen nothing", said Murkowski tartly.

Senate leaders want to hold a vote on the bill before the July 4 recess that starts at the end of this week. They were Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas.

Many senators objected loudly to these changes, usually because their states were among those that expanded coverage, or because their states rely on Medicaid to finance treatment of raging opioid epidemics or both. It would also slap annual spending caps on the overall Medicaid program, which since its inception in 1965 has provided states with unlimited money to cover eligible costs.

According to Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), the GOP health care bill "makes draconian cuts to Medicaid that will impact our nation's children, low-income Americans and seniors".

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said that under the House bill, 23 million fewer people would have coverage by 2026.

"Obamacare's" results have been mixed, with lower enrollment than expected, big losses for many insurers, and sharp premium increases. "As I have consistently stated, if this bill is good for Nevada, I'll vote for it and if it's not - I won't".

Trump said that each of the lawmakers would have a chance to negotiate a better deal. Those at the rally were demanding that something must be done to protect Arizonans from what they see as potentially devastating cuts that could eliminate health care coverage for some of the state's most vulnerable residents.
