United States health-insurance bill faces stiff opposition

"We've a very good plan", Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday.

"This bill is grounded in greed and cruelty to the poor and the underprivileged", he said, and Casey responded, "Well, doctor, I'll tell you, you described the bill better than I did".

President Donald Trump is bemoaning what he calls "the level of hostility" that he says has stymied bipartisanship in Washington.

Five Republican senators have announced they will not support the bill, which is created to repeal and replace Obamacare, in its current form.

Schumer said Senate passage of the bill to replace former president Barack Obama's health law is too close to call.

Republicans have been saying for seven years that they want to repeal Obamacare, so I can hardly pretend to be surprised that they're doing it after winning the 2016 election. "Healthcare's a very complicated subject from the standpoint that you move it this way, and this group doesn't like it". Five senators, including conservatives like Johnson and moderate U.S. Sen.

Johnson, one of five GOP senators who has announced opposition to the bill as written, said there's not "enough time" to review and improve it before a planned vote Thursday - just one week after the secretly drafted bill was made public. Dean Heller of Nevada, have said they oppose the bill in its current form.

"If they're not going to use the committee process for health care, I doubt they'll use it for tax reform", he said.

His surprise slam came just one month after Trump took to the Rose Garden with fellow Republicans to celebrate the House narrowly passing its version of the Obamacare replacement bill.

Sen. Susan Collins of ME says she thinks getting the votes needed in the Senate this week to pass a Republican bill to replace the Affordable Care Act could be very hard. "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.

Meadows also told reporters if the Senate passes the bill this week, the House could quickly follow with a weekend session - ahead of a Fourth of July bill signing by the president.

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, during interviews on CNN's "State of the Union" and "Fox News Sunday", defended the bill, claiming it would help drive down insurance premiums and make private insurance more affordable for those low-income Americans who would no longer qualify for Medicaid. 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. I don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to view the Senate bill. Famous last words, right? Referring to Republican senators opposed to the bill, he added: "They want to get some points, I think they'll get some points". "We don't have too much of a choice, because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare".

President Donald Trump pressured the handful of Republican senators who may be planning to vote against Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's plan to overhaul Obamacare, days before the Senate is likely to begin debate on the measure.

Trump said Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer criticized the GOP bill before knowing what was in it.

"There's no way we should be voting on this next week".

"If we get to impasse, if we go to a bill that is more repeal and less big government programs, yes I'll consider partial repeal", Paul said on ABC. "Their theme is resist".

"The senate bill will codify and make permanent the Medicaid expansion and in fact will have the federal government pay the lion share of the cost", Toomey said. He needs the support of at least 50 of the 52 Republican senators.
