Sen. Ben Sasse Is Uncommitted On Senate Health Care Bill

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky. walks on to the Senate floor on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, June 22, 2017, following a meeting with Senate Republicans on a health reform bill.One of them – Sen.Earlier this month, CNN reported hat Trump had called the Senate bill “mean” in a luncheon with Republican senators, and said the House’s version of the bill did not provide enough protection for individuals. Because it preserves more reasonable subsidies than the House bill and because its Medicaid drawdown happens in the distant 2020s – which is to say, perhaps never – it might not be an outright political catastrophe. But a more holistic, less plutocratic conservatism would not stop there: In an environment where de-industrialization and social breakdown have driven the working class Trumpward, saying we should not oversubsidize their health insurance should be followed by saying so that we can find other ways to help them. “Remember keep your doctor, keep your plan?”Something is there they don’t want to make public.Sen. Mike Lee of Utah said the Republican bill “keeps the Democrats’ broken system intact”. “They’re not addressing the root cause”, he said, referring to rising health care costs. Warren is a leading liberal and defender of the current health law.

Johnson spoke on NBC’s “Meet the Press”. She cited in part provisions that she believes could cut Medicaid more than the House version. As a result, any gap between federal matching funds and what states need for Medicaid would grow over time ― most likely forcing them to make bigger cuts.Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to criticize the Affordable Care Act and Democrats who are opposed to the Republican repeal bill.Trump tells “Fox and Friends” that “we’ve a very good plan”.”I don’t think he’s leading it”, Trump said. “We don’t have too much of a choice, because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare”.Senate Republican leaders are scrambling for enough votes to approve their health care legislation as soon as this week.A month before he officially launched his bid for president, Trump tweeted that he would not touch the Medicaid program. It lays out plans to slow Medicaid spending beginning in 2025, but that probably won’t happen. He said Tuesday’s Republican win in a hotly contested Georgia special election for a House seat shows Democrats would “do better” if they worked with him and congressional Republicans on issues like health care, taxes and infrastructure.”The bill is just devastating”.He told ABC’s This Week that the Republicans have “at best, a 50-50 chance”.”This is not a full repeal or a full replace piece of legislation”, Sasse said.Republicans have long argued the continued growth of the entitlement program is a growing strain on the federal budget.Asked to respond to Conway’s comments, Collins said: “I respectfully disagree with her analysis”. “They are willing to accept the wrenching consequences that attaining those goals might have for Americans’ insurance coverage, betting that lower taxes and smaller government will fuel a more vibrant economy”.”All of that will help immediately to make coverage more affordable, especially for young and healthy people”, said Kristine Grow, a spokeswoman for America’s Health Insurance Plans, a key insurers lobby.
