GOP 'Obamacare' repeal teeters after Senate shelves vote

GOP 'Obamacare' repeal teeters after Senate shelves vote

The overlapping concerns and competing interests of the lawmakers highlight the balancing act facing McConnell as he tries to unify his party and deliver a legislative win to the president.

At the White House meeting with most of the 52 Republican senators, Trump said it was vital to reach agreement on the Senate healthcare measure because Obamacare was "melting down".

Trump added, "The other side is saying all sorts of things before they even knew what the bill was". "Now to put that number into perspective, if you laid 22 million people end to end, it would reach Canada, where they could get health care", Colbert said. So I'm trying to get the information. "We're going to press on".

MITCH MCCONNELL: Legislation of this complexity nearly always takes longer than anybody else would hope.

McConnell also has $200 billion in deficit savings compared with the House-passed bill that he's expected to use to sweeten deals.

The president, who was reportedly sitting next to Alaska Sen.

One of the opponents, Senator Susan Collins of the northeastern state of ME, said proposed funding cuts of almost $800 billion in Medicaid, the government's health care program for the poor, "hurt the most vulnerable Americans" and that access to health care in rural parts of her state would be threatened.

Our president promised that the Republican bill would cover all Americans and provide better access and coverage.

Building regulations vague on cladding for high-rises, says expert
The firm that supplied the tower's cladding has ended global sales of the product for use in high-rise blocks. The Welsh Government said last Friday that it was urging social landlords to have samples of cladding tested.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who met with Trump earlier in the day, said he was encouraged by the president's willingness to negotiate on the measure and hoped leadership would do the same.

The plan is for the Republicans to rewrite the health bill over the Fourth of July recess and get new analysis from the Congressional Budget Office before bringing legislation to the floor.

Still, McConnell has repeatedly salvaged victories when political prospects seemed darkest, helping avert a debt crisis in 2011 when he concocted an unusual solution that the Obama administration embraced. Chuck Schumer, the chamber's top Democrat, said Tuesday his party would work with Republicans as long as the bill did not focus on cutting benefits for the poor while cutting taxes for the rich. Heller. Tell him America needs him to keep his promise: "Vote "yes" to repeal and replace Obamacare". "What the act really would do, would be to cut tens of millions of Americans who are low income, working Americans off health care without fundamentally addressing what are the predominant cost drivers of health care".

A majority of Americans - 51 percent - now say they have a favorable view of the Affordable Care Act, according to the latest Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll.

"The status quo is simply unsustainable", he said.

"My suspicion is that any negotiation with the Democrats would include none of the reforms that we would like to make, both on the market side and the Medicaid side".

We need our politicians to clearly verbalize what their goal is. They've mostly focused on how terrible Obamacare is, at least for the 8 percent of Americans who get their insurance on the individual marketplace. "And we're working hard to do that".
