Trump scrambles for votes as Republicans express doubt over health care bill

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.

Lie One: Democrats and progressives are unwilling to work with Republicans and conservatives on this issue.

Republican U.S. Senator Susan Collins of ME said on Sunday that she has extreme reservations about the Senate health-care bill.

U.S. President Donald Trump says he and his Republican colleagues in the Senate are facing "a very narrow path" in their seven-year effort to overhaul the national healthcare reforms championed by former President Barack Obama.

McConnell wants a vote before his members head home to face their constituents over Congress' Fourth of July recess - maybe even before they have a chance to fully digest the bill, which would shake up an industry that comprises one-sixth of the US economy and safeguards the health and well-being of more than 300 million Americans. Analysts noted that if all Democrats vote against the bill, only two GOP votes would be required to stop it from passing. "And I'm open arms; but, I don't see that happening. The level of hostility". "I call her Pocahontas and that's an insult to Pocahontas".

Trump remained confident, but acknowledged that a "negotiation" might be needed to get the bill passed.

The CBO is not expected to "score" the Senate version of the health care bill until next week, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed to have a vote on the measure by the end of the week. Defections from just three of the Senate's 52 Republicans would doom the legislation. I hope I'm not lying to myself.

President Trump admits to calling the bill "mean". "Healthcare's a very complicated subject from the standpoint that you move it this way, and this group doesn't like it". Trump said on Saturday on his personal Twitter account. He is seeking to push a final package through the Senate before the July 4 recess.

The center estimates that the proposal to shift the cost of Medicaid payments to states could cost Arizona an additional $243.2 million by 2021, a number that could grow to $773 million by 2024.

"I would like to delay", said Sen.

Four of the Senate's most conservative members immediately complained that the bill didn't go far enough.

"The working poor, disabled and elderly appear to shoulder the burden in this latest version of Congress' health care rewrite", Edwards said.

But, he wrote, those in Washington think "more money" can solve every problem. In addition to her concerns about Medicaid, Collins has critiqued the bill for blocking funding to Planned Parenthood.

A key Republican swing vote on the Senate health care bill said Monday that he opposed the current plan because it did not roll back Obamacare's protections for people with preexisting conditions, a demand that will likely make it hard to win his vote. "We should not be voting on this next week", he said on NBC's "Meet the Press". "That's the kind of thing we're trying to fix".

The Senate bill resembles legislation the House approved last month. It eliminates the individual mandate that forced people to get health insurance, repeals Obamacare taxes on insurers and the wealthy, and gives states more power to administer their own Medicaid programs.

"They took the money out of health care, out of Medicaid and that's why we see 23 million Americans losing their health insurance", Durbin said. The bill would also cut taxes for high-income Americans. And we should look to improve successful models for protecting individuals with pre-existing conditions, models underway prior to Obamacare, such as those in ME and Wisconsin. Famous last words, right?

Paul said he would only vote for the bill if it substantially repealed the ACA, which it does not do as it now stands. "We don't have too much of a choice because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare".

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin strongly believes the Affordable Care Act needs to be improved but not replaced.

Trump held a victory celebration in the Rose Garden of the White House after the House vote, but since then has called the legislation "mean".
