Sen. Elizabeth Warren Slams 'Blood Money' GOP Health Care Bill

Martin Heinrich said the Senate bill "is everything we feared it would be".

"The public at large is deeply skeptical about the repeal-and-replace plan, with support among the Republican base hanging in but slipping and in danger of falling further", says Drew Altman, president of the Kaiser Family Foundation. McConnell was "basically writing it by himself behind closed doors and nobody is ever doing anything good behind closed doors", Meyers said.

The bill's rolling back of Medicaid expansion was key point of contention for Heller and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.

Bombings at market in Pakistan kill 15
The blasts took place at a market within three minutes of each another, senior government official Wazir Khan said. No group claimed responsibility for the Parachinar blasts.

"The current bill does not repeal Obamacare", Rand Paul, one of the four Senators, along with Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Ted Cruz of Texas, and Mike Lee of Utah, who have said in a joint statement that they're "not ready to vote for this bill".

"What I would like to do is legalize cheap insurance and you should be able to get insurance for $1 a day - I mean, you really should", Paul said. And GOP Sen. Susan Collins of ME reiterated her opposition to language blocking federal money for Planned Parenthood, which many Republicans oppose because it provides abortions.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Obama said there is a "fundamental meanness at the core" of both the Senate's and House's health care legislation. The score for the House bill projected that 23 million people would lose their insurance, whilst cutting the federal deficit by $119bn over a decade.

Lynching of Kashmir cop against Islam, humanity: Congress
The police officer identified as Mohammed Ayoub Pandit was on duty when the mob attacked him, a police spokesman said. Pandith, who was in civil clothes, was seen outside the Jamia Masjid where the Shab-e-Qadr prayers were under way.

Trump welcomed the bill but indicated changes might be in store, tweeting: "I am very supportive of the Senate #Healthcarebill".

As of now, the four defectors don't believe the bill will actually lower health care costs, which the GOP promised to its voters if it repeals the Affordable Care Act. Now I see exactly what they meant.

With a third of the Senate coming up for re-election in 2018, many will have to weigh the state-wide implications before voting for the bill. None of the Senate's 48 Democrats are expected to support the package, meaning the legislation survives only if no more than two Republicans vote no.

Couillard says Muslims also have a responsibility in the fight against terrorism
During a court hearing on Wednesday, it was learned that Ftouhi is from Tunisia and several family members still reside there. Scholten said he expects Neville to recover and return to usual activities within six to eight weeks.

McConnell blames the Affordable Care Act for rising health insurance premiums and says insurance companies pulling out of Obamacare markets show that the program is not working. He released this statement on Thursday after details of the Senate bill became known. Even if it passes it would have to go back to the House for a vote before landing on Donald Trump's desk to be signed into law.
