Trump insists he's engaged with health care bill

Trump insists he's engaged with health care bill

This prompted Collins to quickly announce that she would vote against proceeding to debate on the Better Care Reconciliation Act.

Republican leaders were in a fierce push on Tuesday to shore up support for a healthcare bill in the U.S. Senate after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said 22 million Americans would lose insurance over the next decade under the measure. Conservative senators say the Senate bill does not do enough to repeal Obamacare.

Now, you say, "Well, will you work with your Republican colleagues?"

In the folksy analysis of John Cornyn of Texas, the Senate GOP vote-counter: "Every time you get one bullfrog in the wheelbarrow, another one jumps out".

GOP defections increased after the Congressional Budget Office said Monday the measure would leave 22 million more people uninsured by 2026 than Obama's 2010 statute. So, just because the Senate has thrown a tire in June does not mean that the entire bill is going into the Legislative Ditch.

Plus, it could devastate hospitals across our state that have already been teetering on the brink. Heading into McConnell's office, she said the bill's tax credit scheme, which is particularly burdensome on older consumers, would be an area of discussion.

Collins is one of almost 10 Republicans who have expressed opposition to the bill. Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, from Alaska, has cited the Congressional Budget Office's predictions as their yardstick to whether to vote in support of the bill or not. Moderates and senators who cite the CBO's dismal scores of the House legislation are now facing the attacks of disparaging adverts by a pro-Obamacare group. This is what happened in the House. Now it looks like at least 12 GOP senators are opposed to the bill in its current form, another sign of how much of a mess this thing is.

One might ask if there was any better way to handle this challenge, or if it's simply impossible to design a health-care plan that would be consistent with conservative free-market principles yet not result in more people without insurance and higher costs for the poor and middle class. It was approved by a 217-214 vote.

McConnell's decision was so last-minute that even senior Senate Republicans appeared unaware that the announcement was coming.

The other was that McConnell was willing to let the bill go down if he couldn't salvage it and move on to tax cuts and infrastructure, rather than allowing the health debate to consume the rest of the year. Vice President Mike Pence, who could cast a crucial 51st vote in the Senate, is on a road trip to meet with wavering Republicans.

Republicans eager to repeal "Obamacare" suffered a deeply embarrassing setback on Tuesday when shrinking support forced them to postpone votes on their controversial health care overhaul, one of President Donald Trump's top priorities. Susan Collins, R-Maine, left, and Sen.

At the same time, the Departments of Labor and Homeland Security are hurriedly issuing visas to allow immigrant workers for the hospitality industry in ME and the fishery in Alaska, ProPublica reported.

Senator Angus King, an independent, lamented the lack of presidential leadership to guide the legislation that he said runs counter to Trump's promises to insure everyone, cut costs and protect those with pre-existing conditions.

"I have so many fundamental problems with the bill that have been confirmed by the CBO report that it's hard for me to see how any tinkering is going to satisfy my fundamental and deep concerns about the impact of the bill", said Maine GOP Sen.

"There are so many problems in healthcare", he said.

When Republicans campaigned past year on a pledge to "repeal and replace Obamacare", they failed to add, as has become obvious, "with something just as flawed". They fear the political consequences of not keeping this campaign pledge. "These are real families who need and deserve health care". Whatever they might agree on has little chance of garnering much popular support.

Utah's Mike Lee became the fifth Republican senator to oppose letting the chamber formally begin considering the proposal.
