Trump prods Republican senators to work harder on healthcare reform

Trump prods Republican senators to work harder on healthcare reform

"Those were the two promises that were made by the previous administration" about the Affordable Care Act, he said.

The pressure is on Lee and the handful of other Republican holdouts on the bill meant to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, because Senate leaders can afford to lose only one more GOP vote.

"After all of these years of suffering thru Obamacare, Republican Senators must come through as they have promised", Trump wrote.

Several senators, including Shelley Moore Capito, Rob Portman and John McCain, had concerns about the legislation and particularly its Medicaid cuts.

After weeks of wrangling, Senate Republicans unveiled a revised version of their healthcare bill on Thursday, with GOP leaders planning a vote, or at least a procedural one, in the upcoming week. Two, Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Rand Paul of Kentucky, already have announced they're voting against allowing the bill to be debated.

Anderson Exantus, a 19-year-old neighbor, said he would often see the little boy playing outside with his mother and siblings. The front doors of Action Saint Saveur's auto were unlocked and it had a dead battery. "I don't know why this happened".

On that basis, we are inclined to agree with Senator Cruz, who said, "I think this new bill represents a substantial improvement over the previous version", according to the Texas Tribune's Livingstone and Evans.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell late Saturday put off plans to hold a vote on the bill this week, after Republican Sen.

The Republican bill is aimed at fulfilling President Donald Trump's pledge to repeal Obamacare, the signature health insurance achievement of former Democratic President Barack Obama, which covers some 20 million Americans. With the Democrats solidly opposed to the legislation, the Republicans can only pass the bill if all their other members back it and if Republican Vice President casts his tie-breaking vote in favour. "And the time to deliver that to them is next week", McConnell said.

The bill played to the party's disparate factions by letting insurers sell cheap, bare-bones policies while retaining taxes on the wealthy. "It is simply unworkable in any form and would undermine protections for those with pre-existing medical conditions, increase premiums and lead to widespread terminations of coverage for people now enrolled in the individual market". Close the doors and sit down to discuss and negotiate the Medicaid portion of an insolvent, past-hope program called ObamaCare.

The Cruz amendment, offered to placate conservatives, allows insurers to provide plans with fewer benefits that don't meet the necessary list of "essential health benefits" under current law. Records of his medical exams released in 2008 when he was the GOP candidate for president showed that he has had removed precancerous skin lesions, as well as an early stage squamous cell carcinoma, an easily cured skin cancer.
