Republican Senator Comes Out Against Party's Healthcare Bill

Evan Vucci  AP

Senate Majority Lead, Mitch McConnell says there will not be a bote on Healthcare this week. "Obamacare is a total disaster", Trump said. Senate leaders could use some of those additional savings to attract moderate votes by making Medicaid and other provisions more generous, though conservatives would rather use that money to reduce red ink.

"We're going to press on", said McConnell.

US Senate Republican leaders have delayed the vote on repealing and replacing Obamacare until after next week's Fourth of July holiday due to a lack of party support.

Democrats said they are planning to keep up the fight against the Republican legislation. If reform of our country's health care is going to make our lives better - and, to be clear, as it's written, we doubt the Senate bill would make improvements - it must be done carefully and in public. He also referred to the bill as "an ongoing discussion", and said that several senators wanted more time.

Stimulus to be scaled back if economy gets better, Draghi
United States crude rose 2.21 per cent to $44.34 per barrel and Brent was last at $46.90, up 2.33 per cent on the day. The euro leaped 0.9% against the dollar to $1.1284, while eurozone government bond yields also rose sharply.

The bill could be defeated, he said, because the Republicans "cannot excise the rotten core at the centre of their health care bill".

The bill provides billions in tax cuts to insurance companies and the wealthy, while allowing states to drop several now mandated benefits, such as maternity care and hospital services. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Sen. But minutes before news broke of an imminent delay, the White House scrambled to invite senators to discuss the issues. CBO analysis shows Senate bill won't do it.

"As drafted, this bill will not ensure access to affordable health care in West Virginia, does not do enough to combat the opioid epidemic that is devastating my state, cuts traditional Medicaid too deeply, and harms rural health care providers", Capito's portion of the statement said.

"No matter how the bill changes around the edges, it is fundamentally flawed at the center", he said.

Is It a Forest or a City? Actually, It's Both
Boeri's ultimate goal is to create an entire "forest city " that will become a reality in Liuzhou by 2020. It will run on renewable energy sources including solar energy and geothermal.

It also highlights the fractures within the party over how to improve the health care system while not cutting millions of Americans out of insurance coverage.

It would have been just as calamitous for Republicans to implement a health care plan without a single Democratic vote as it was when Democrats pushed through the Affordable Care Act eight years ago without a single Republican vote.

"His calculation is that he can spend next week or so trying to figure out how to bring some of these recalcitrant Republicans on board and there's a reason why you don't want to bet against him", Manley said.

The Senate plan would end the tax penalty that law imposes on people who don't buy insurance, in effect erasing Obama's so-called individual mandate, and on larger businesses that don't offer coverage to workers.

South Korea Urges North to Stop Weapons Development
The protest came as President Moon Jae-in and his USA counterpart Donald Trump are set to meet in Washington D.C. next week. Vietnam accounts for a large USA trade deficit ($32 billion), a key concern for the Trump administration.

"And if we don't get it done, it's just going to be something that we're not going to like", the president said. And if Obamacare doesn't fail, and most experts think it will continue to be at least moderately successful in the coming years, he can take retroactive credit for not dealing Americans a crippling blow to their surprisingly resilient healthcare law.
