Senate Passes Motion To Proceed On Health Care Debate

Without Obamacare, companies could roll back benefits, raise out-of-pocket costs

Protesters briefly disrupted the Senate proceedings on the health care bill, shouting "Kill the bill" and "shame" before being led out of the chamber by police.

He suggested that changes to the current health care law could be improved "with narrower reforms that do not jeopardize the access to health care that millions now receive". Instead, repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has become partisan red meat. All 48 Democrats voted against it, as did two Republicans-Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska-creating a 50-50 deadlock which was broken by Pence's vote.

Michael Kors is to buy British luxury shoe and accessory brand Jimmy Choo for £900 million, reports The Guardian . JAB is moving out of fashion to concentrate on its coffee and food businesses, including Krispy Kreme.

It's an attempt to capitalize on a critical moment in the health care battle, as the Senate moves toward repealing at least parts of Obamacare.

True, polls show Obamacare remains unpopular. However, there are reports that the GOP's newest plan is a so-called "skinny repeal"-legislation that would undo: Obamacare's individual mandate requiring people to carry health insurance or pay a penalty; a mandate on employers to cover full time workers; and a tax on medical device companies". Millions of people were forced to give up health-insurance policies with which they were perfectly happy, so claims that "millions will lose their coverage" when Obamacare hits the dumpster ring hollow. Income-related gaps in access to a primary care provider and avoiding care due to cost also declined more in expansion states than in nonexpansion states.

Vice President Mike Pence broke a 50-50 tie to clear the Senate motion to proceed with the House-passed bill to repeal and replace the 2010 health care law, after weeks of hand-wringing and backroom deal-making by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. John McCain himself-who made a dramatic return to the Senate on Tuesday following a recent brain cancer diagnosis-slammed the "shell" health care bill (it's unclear exactly which possible version he was referring to), in a speech to the Senate just minutes after he voted "aye" on the motion to proceed.
