Senate Republican leaders delay healthcare bill vote

Share

Last week, Mr. Trump tweeted that he is "very supportive" of the Senate bill.

And now, disgruntled centrist and conservative GOP senators are forcing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to scramble to rescue the measure before debate even begins.

The White House lambasted the nonpartisan budget office in a statement, saying it has a "history of inaccuracy" projecting coverage. All Democrats oppose it. "The bill's defenders will say it repeals Obamacare's taxes and reduces Medicaid spending growth".

Senators like Paul don't feel the bill goes far enough in actually repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.

Following the announcement, McConnell spoke briefly to express hope that the GOP will get "at least 50 people in a comfortable place" before a vote.

The Washington Examiner is now reporting that the GOP leadership has amended their newest version of the American Health Care Act to include a penalty for not having continuous coverage.

Moderates like Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said she would vote no.

In addition, conservative Sen.

Moderate Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., on Friday said he'd oppose the procedural motion without alterations. Ted Cruz. McConnell directly dismissed any possibility that the Obamacare repeal effort was finished.

Several other members have been skeptical or quiet about the bill, including Sen. And perhaps he'll give a more pointed pitch behind closed doors.

All Republican senators have been invited to the White House for a meeting about health care Tuesday afternoon. James Lankford of Oklahoma, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Ben Sasse of Nebraska.

Others want more time to review the draft plan, while a pair of centrists said the bill is too harsh on Medicaid and would result in too many people falling off the insurance rolls. It also would eliminate $700 billion worth of taxes over a decade, largely on wealthier people and medical companies - money that Obama's law used to expand coverage. But the report digs deeper into the kind of insurance that people, especially poor people, would be able to access - and finds that it would be so financially burdensome with high deductibles that many people would choose not to sign up.

The Senate is scheduled to recess all next week for the Independence Day holiday.

As The New York Times' Margot Sanger-Katz wrote: "Many middle-income Americans would be expected to pay a larger share of their income to purchase health insurance that covers a smaller share of their care".

In another troublesome finding for the legislation, the budget office warned that in some rural areas, either no insurer would be willing participate in the individual market or the policies offered would be prohibitively expensive. And President Donald Trump will "continue to listen to senators who have ideas about how to strengthen it", he added.
