Bennet: Bipartisan support on Obamacare replacement will come if current bill fails

Evan Vucci  AP

Senator Susan Collins of ME, in an interview with ABC, noted that securing her vote will not be a simple matter. "Schumer", he said, referring to Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. "Wrong, I know the subject well & want victory for U.S". "The Senate draft before us includes some promising changes to reduce premiums in the individual insurance market, but I continue to have real concerns about the Medicaid policies in this bill, especially those that impact drug treatment at a time when OH is facing an opioid epidemic", he said.

US Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and majority whip John Cornyn at the White House after senators met with the president about the healthcare bill.

President Donald Trump's Republican party is struggling to secure the 50 votes it needs to get its bill through the Senate when it comes to the floor. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Sen.

With all Senate Democrats opposed, it would take just three Republicans to block the bill, so the lack of support on the procedural vote spelled an end to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's hope for passage by the end of the week.

"So, we're going to talk and we're going to see what we can do", he said. It had planned was to release the advertisement on television and radio in Nevada in advance of the Senate vote on the health care bill that was expected this week and to conduct additional ad campaigns in 18 other states in support of the legislation.

The Republican reform plan would not directly affect half of Americans, who receive health insurance through their employers.

After meeting with Trump, McConnell warned that "the status quo is simply unsustainable" and said Republicans have two options.

Some Republican opponents of the health law changes said the plan would cost too many poor Americans their insurance, while others thought the changes did not go far enough in overturning key provisions of the seven-year-old law championed by former President Barack Obama and popularly known as Obamacare.

Another opponent, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, said it was worse to "pass a bad bill than to pass no bill". They've mostly focused on how disgusting Obamacare is, at least for the 8 percent of Americans who get their insurance on the individual marketplace.

That required working with Democrats, however, not his own caucus. "I told the president I'm open to supporting it, but it has to get better".

As noted above, the CBO report also projects that the BCRA would reduce the federal deficit by $321 billion over the next decade, or $202 billion more than the estimated net savings from the House-passed American Health Care Act.

Several major health groups, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, oppose the Senate health bill.

Republicans fear the week-long delay will allow opposition to the proposal to build, and Sen.

"There doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in focusing on the things that would actually fix the many things that Republicans and Democrats both agree are wrong with the Affordable Care Act", Baker said.
