Even Ted Cruz not ready to support latest Obamcare repeal

Lisa Murkowski

Republican Senators John McCain of Arizona and Rand Paul of Kentucky have already said they would vote against the repeal effort, the latest of dozens of legislative attempts by Republicans to undermine the 2010 law they have opposed, in part because it requires nearly all American workers to buy health care insurance policies or pay a fine if they don't.

The bill would lose if three GOP senators vote "no" in a showdown this week.

"I won't vote for Obamacare Lite that keeps 90% of the taxes & spending just so some people can claim credit for something that didn't happen", Paul said.

President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday that McCain had "let Arizona down" by opposing the bill. GOP Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has announced his opposition and GOP Sen.

GOP leaders hoped to bring the legislation to the Senate floor next week. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

Lawmakers authorized almost $32 billion in spending on June 30 and have grappled ever since with how to fully fund it. Call your state senators and tell them to approve the state House's no-tax-increase plan.

Analyses of the Graham-Cassidy bill by independent groups show both Alaska and ME would suffer significant reductions in federal funding for coverage subsidies, Medicaid expansion, and traditional Medicaid compared with current law.

Graham is McCain's best friend in the Senate, but McCain says he can't support the bill in good conscience. The Senate Finance Committee hearing is being held even though the measure's prospects are dim.

Sen. John McCain declared his opposition Friday to the GOP's last-ditch effort to repeal and replace "Obamacare", dealing a likely death blow to the legislation and, perhaps, to the Republican Party's years of vows to kill the programme.

The nation's doctors, hospitals and health insurance plans are unified in their opposition to the latest Republican bill to dismantle Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. "McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process".

Sen. Susan Collins said Sunday morning that it would be "very hard for me to envision a scenario" where she would vote for Republicans' latest plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, but the Maine Republican said she wanted to wait for a Congressional Budget Office score of the Graham-Cassidy bill before rendering a final decision.

Trump to Campaign in Alabama for 'Big Luther' in Runoff
After serving in the Army, Judge Moore completed his Juris Doctor degree from The University of Alabama School of Law in 1977. Luther Strange in his race to keep his Senate seat. "If anyone has any questions please let me know".

"They could remove the block grants from it, and we can vote on what we actually on agree on", Paul said. He campaigned on Repeal & Replace.

Eyes are also on Alaska Sen.

Republicans need 50 of their 52 senators to vote for the bill under special budget rules that allow them to avoid the typical 60-vote threshold, which would require Democratic support.

"I'm concerned about the impact on costs and coverage". John McCain's opposition to the latest GOP effort to pass a health care bill "sad" and "a frightful, disgusting thing for the Republican Party".

Here's what Trump's tweeted about Paul: "I think he may find a way to get there for the good of the Party!" Instead, the federal government would block-grant health care funding to the states - which critics say could destabilize the healthcare market and cut millions of people off of insurance. States could loosen coverage requirements under the law's mandates, including prohibiting insurers from charging seriously ill people higher premiums and letting them sell policies covering fewer services.
