Health care bill set for vote faces uphill climb — The Latest

I have pen in hand. We'll repeal. We'll replace. And he's never going to sign it.

INSKEEP: That's precisely the problem. That compares with the 20 million who have become insured under Obamacare, as the Affordable Care Act is known.

"We have to have a responsible replacement", said Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-3rd Dist.), who played a major role in enabling House Republicans to pass their original health care bill. That's the worst of all worlds. Mr. Barnes, good morning. As Renée says, "it's weird and very JP". The GOP is conducting an exercise aimed to deliver tax cuts for the rich funded by brutal Medicaid cuts as it tries to undo the federal government guarantee of health-care coverage that the Affordable Care Act created for able-bodied, non-elderly adults. President Trump has offered two different plans and the Republicans killed both.

The protests continued once senators came back to work, and another set of protests is planned for this weekend.

"And Alabama's done things the right way - we've tried to be thoughtful and creative so that we're taking care of those who most need the help".

Moreover, though many Republicans assume that Obamacare's final implosion would mostly redound to the Democrats' detriment, it is hard to see that considering they would be the ones in power during the implosion. They have been given this great opportunity and they are squandering it.

The increases in abandoning repeal efforts are coming from groups that are not central to the GOP base, including younger adults, people with lower incomes, and non-whites, all who have become more supportive of leaving Obamacare alone. He doesn't like that. Democrats believed that once "Obamacare" became law, and families started enjoying the benefits of the vastly improved system, the overheated controversy would fade and the ACA's popularity would grow.

BARNES:.Health care insurance mainly for poor people.

Further, only about 25 percent of Republicans favor a bill that has only the backing of their party's lawmakers. "They've been listening, and they've been impressed by the level of activism and the intensity of interest", Blumenthal said in a tram below the Capitol Tuesday afternoon about Senate Republicans.

For seven years the Republicans have wanted to got rid of Obamacare.

"If you move more to the middle, you lose people on the right", Hudak said. "But, no, I don't think it has an effect". Many of them are working a full-time job, still, apparently, don't have employer-sponsored insurance.

"Any senator who votes against starting debate is really telling America that you're fine with Obamacare", Mr. Trump said before a lunch with the senators Wednesday. But since it had zero chance of being enacted, no one cared about whether what was left in the wake of repeal would result in a functioning insurance market.

The latest estimate did not take into account a recent amendment by Sen.

"By 2026, spending for that program [Medicaid] would be reduced by 26 percent". Fortunately, they do not appear to be bluffing.

"They keep promising it will get better but there is no way to fix repeal".

The president's opening comments at the lunch were open to the media and cable television was pretty quick to broadcast them.

This is a commentary piece.

BARNES: Well, they just aren't very good team players.

Staffer: But those numbers aren't accurate because this is just repealing now with a replacement to come later. Some were demanding it would be cut.

Trump urged the senators to resolve the health care issue immediately, according to Strange.
