Another Lawmaker Says No to Trump's Healthcare Bill

Charles Koch thanks Harry Reid for helping his book sales

The Congressional Budget Office issued a report in May saying by 2026, 28 million people would be uninsured under Obamacare and 51 million would be uninsured under the American Health Care Act, the bill House Republicans passed last month.

Dean Heller (R-NV) and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) feel the bill is too harsh.

Johnson said he is looking forward to working with Senate leadership and the president to "improve the bill so it addresses the plight of the forgotten men and women by returning freedom and choice to health care".

"This is largely a Medicaid reform package", Sasse said, during the lunchtime program at the meeting of the Seminar Network, which brings together hundreds of large donors to the organizations under the umbrella of Charles and David Koch. Three of them said they anxious it does not go far enough in repealing the ACA, known as Obamacare. Senate Republican leaders may rely on the deal-making former businessman to lean on conservative senators who are balking at the bill.

President Trump spent part of his Saturday at Trump National Golf Club but had healthcare on his mind.

"Small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, can not change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation", he wrote in a Facebook post Thursday.

By reducing the growth of Medicaid spending more than the House bill does, the Senate version adds $2 billion to the $37 billion the state would lose in coming years compared to states that fully expanded Medicaid, Borgerding said. That's more than enough to torpedo the measure developed in private by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and deliver a bitter defeat for the president.

"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", he said. GOP Senator Susan Collins of ME, who has not yet said she will vote against the bill, expressed reservations towards it to news outlets today. Charles Schumer of NY and Elizabeth Warren of MA as "obstructionists". But both versions permit states to say insurers can reinstate caps on coverage and stop paying for essential health benefits, such as prescriptions, maternity care and substance abuse treatment.

The Council is comprised of senior princes who gather in secret and vote to pick the king and crown prince from among themselves. Prince Mohammed bin Salman replied: "We will not give up taking your guidance and advice".

"I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party", Obama wrote in a Facebook post.

Medicaid is a health insurance program for low-income children and adults, pregnant women, seniors in nursing homes and people with disabilities.

The full impact of McConnell's bill won't be clear until the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office completes its analysis next week. They fight each other. "I think they have at best a 50/50 chance of passing this bill".

"It's so easy. But we won't get one Democrat vote, not one".

Some Democrats say they're ready to negotiate.

Shortly after the Senate bill was released on Thursday, the challenges that lie ahead in the Senate came into view. And it would keep more of Obamacare's insurance regulations than the House legislation. Right now we've got premiums that are going through the roof.

He was then asked by the Fox News reporter about Elizabeth Warren, to which Trump replied: 'I think she's a hopeless case, I call her Pocahontas and that's an insult to Pocahontas.
