No break until health bill passed - Trump

Trump gathered 49 Republican senators on Wednesday for a White House lunch after a bill to repeal and replace the 2010 Affordable Care Act collapsed on Monday following dissent from a handful of the party's conservatives and moderates. He fashioned a bill primarily to please the conservatives who dominate his caucus, then refined it to further accommodate holdouts on the right. That was Sens. Susan Collins, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Jerry Moran in the first instance, and Sens.

It predicted that average premiums in the private health insurance market that serves individuals who purchase policies directly from insurers would increase by roughly 25 percent relative to projections under the existing system.

The CBO score was released the day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., announced that the Senate would vote on a so-called "straight repeal" next week after two attempts to craft replacement legislation failed.

The consensus among voters is clear.

"My experience has been, and sadly I think this is still true today, that when a woman is elected to the Senate, she still has to prove that she belongs there, whereas when a man is elected to the Senate, it's assumed that he belongs here", she said. It would force the closure of many rural hospitals, clinics and drug-treatment programs that rely on Medicaid and cost-sharing subsidies. Make that, this is not governing in the Trump era. "It depends what's in the bill".

Now it's time to pay the price for your seven years of fake politics.

It is unlikely the Senate would get enough votes for a broader repeal, but efforts are again picking up to hammer out a way forward on legislation that both guts the ACA and sets up a GOP-shaped health plan.

"We can repeal, but we should repeal and replace", Trump said to Senate Republicans, who took a field trip from Capitol Hill to have lunch with him at the White House.

The bill would effectively repeal Obamacare in 2020, giving lawmakers until then to come up with a replacement plan. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), was not in the new analysis because the budget office needs more time to analyze it.

Trump added that any "senator who votes against starting debate is really telling America that you're fine with Obamacare".

Senate Republican leaders originally blocked all five GOP women out of negotiations for their health-care bill.

That new replacement, he said, would reduce premiums 60 to 70 percent.

Heller later said "that's President Trump being President Trump".

Hudak thinks such veiled threats aren't helpful.

Most troubling, for me, CBO noted that premiums may soar for older Americans.

"We're not going to own it. I'm not going to own it", the President said.

"I think a lot of the problem is simply that Trump isn't very experienced with the kind of negotiations that are needed to pass a bill". You can't walk away from a bad deal and go looking somewhere else.

As part of the sit-in, protesters broke into smaller groups lodged themselves in the doorways of those Republican senators who have not come out publicly against the bill.
