Obamacare repeal bill dealt yet another possibly fatal blow by Senate parliamentarian

During a lunch meeting Wednesday, Trump urged senators to stay in Washington to forge an agreement on the health care legislation before the start of an already postponed August recess. Despite overwhelming opposition from patients, doctors, nurses, hospitals, employers, unions, safety-net health plans and others who have a direct stake in these decisions, Republican congressman have been pushing forward dangerous pieces of legislation that will result in millions of Americans going without health insurance, and driving up the costs for those who are still covered.

At least for now, the threat remains - but the action has been put off again. Republicans have spent the past couple of months trying to come to a consensus, piecing together a couple of different versions of the same bill.

Defunding Planned Parenthood was only one of the provisions that violate the Senate rules; the parliamentarian also ruled that abortion restrictions on tax credits under the Republican bill could be subject to a point of order on the Senate floor, as could other provisions.

This year, the Congressional Budget Office appeared to give those critics some back-up. By quietly publishing anti-Affordable Care Act propaganda and removing vital information about the law from government websites, the Trump Administration continues to strip citizens of their rights under the ACA.

As president, Trump has referred to the Democratic leader in the Senate as "Cryin' Chuck Schumer".

But before McConnell could even play chicken with these (mostly male) senators, by lunchtime Monday, Sens.

Depending on how it all shakes out, buyers of Obamacare health plans could face sharply higher premiums and fewer health plan options in 2018, analysts said. That's roughly $12,000 to $30,000 for an individual and about $24,000 to $60,750 for a family of four, according to The Commonwealth Fund. Senators are expected to hold a procedural vote on Tuesday.

Democrats, led by California's redoubtable former House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, can either sit back and watch the messy proceedings content with the mayhem it is causing in Republican ranks or take advantage of the moment to seek accommodation with a weakened president in some areas where they can find agreement. The CBO said most older people would still face higher premiums than younger people.

It wasn't quite a wicked-witch-is-dead Munchkin happy dance, but the white noise of foregone conclusions drowned out Republicans' relatively muted regret over their failure to repeal and replace Obamacare. They want the savings to go toward tax reform, which the savings from necessary Medicaid reforms will help buffer.

Do I have news for her. I worked for almost 25 years for the Department of Human Services, Surveillance and Utilization Review Division (the investigative arm of Medicaid for Minnesota). Leading Republicans warned of dire political consequences in next year's midterm elections should their party fail to fulfill their years-long promise to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law.

For that matter, why should women have to subsidize men's sexual dysfunction curatives when, by the way, men don't have to pony up for women's corresponding, post-menopausal, medically appropriate intercessions. Congress' nonpartisan fiscal analyst said Wednesday the repeal-only bill would mean 32 million additional uninsured people over a decade and average premiums doubling.

Needless to say, the Trump Administration is disregarding its responsibility to administer the Affordable Care Act and is putting significant resources into sabotaging the law through all means necessary. Similarly, when an outbreak of illness occurs, Medicaid is there to provide coverage for needed care.

Yes, we know what they're against - every Republican initiative, from health-care to tax reform.

"This bill would make sweeping and deep cuts in the Medicaid program, which has been a safety net program on the books for more than 50 years", Collins told ABC News on Sunday.
