Trump pushes GOP to solve health care overhaul riddle

US Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell, Republican of Kentucky speaks about the Senate Republican's healthcare bill alongside US Senator John Thune, Republican of South Dakota at the US Capitol in Washington DC

With the Senate bill delayed by a few weeks and maybe more, the timeline of the effort - and the overall viability of a years-long bid to dismantle Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act (ACA) in favor of a Republican replacement - was thrown into question. He had expressed concern about Medicaid cuts in the GOP bill.

As reporters continued to press Collins, Democratic Senator Mark Warner plunged through the scrum into the just-opened elevator behind her, bringing Collins along. "I want to work w/ my GOP & Dem colleagues to fix the flaws in ACA. I have every expectation that the Senate - I don't know what day -but I have every expectation the Senate will move this bill". "I will vote no on [motion to proceed]", she wrote in the first.

A Congressional Budget Office analysis that was released Monday found that the bill would result in a 22 million loss of health insurance for Americans over the next decade due, in part, to the bill's rollback of Medicaid expansion, according to NPR. Hospitals already make up for what Medicaid doesn't cover by spreading the costs around.

Because of increased dollars to Medicaid, through the Affordable Care Act, Bowman said 5,000 local residents were screened for depression and 500 for hypertension. To pass a bill, McConnell must find a way to please one side without losing more support from the other. GOP support for their own plan is underwhelming, however. This is what happened in the House.

Still, the discussion, several senators said, was positive, constructive and not tense - a change from the last 10 days leading up to what was expected to be a vote on the bill later this week. But others - Susan Collins of Maine, Rob Portman of Ohio, Dean Heller of Nevada - have listened to those who are outraged that they'd even consider such a harmful measure. It was approved by a 217-214 vote. The CBO predicts that premiums would rise for a few years under the Senate plan, then fall by about 30%. Since the Vice President can cast a vote to break ties, and Vice President Pence is a Republican, 50 senators must vote in favor of the bill and rely on Pence to cast the tie-breaking vote.

Mattis Says Trump's Warning Stopped Chemical Weapons Attack In Syria
He said the US assertions complicated peace talks on Syria, according to RIA news agency. The fact is we are in Syria to destroy ISIS.

Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan, both Republicans, were spotted heading into office ahead of Senate GOP's conference wide-lunch.

At the same time, the Departments of Labor and Homeland Security are hurriedly issuing visas to allow immigrant workers for the hospitality industry in ME and the fishery in Alaska, ProPublica reported.

Sullivan has been less vocal in his concerns about the direction the Senate was heading with its bill.

"I would say that I have so many fundamental problems with the bill that have been confirmed by the CBO report, that it's hard for me to see how any tinkering is going to satisfy my fundamental and deep concern about the impact of the bill", she said after the White House meeting. Do we want medical care to be a right for all (like most Western societies), or do we want to consider it a commodity that you can have if you can afford it? He's invited all 52 Republican senators to White House this afternoon, and he told them Obamacare was melting down, needed to be replaced.

Seth Meyers mocks 'dummy' Trump for being trolled by Obama
Meyers pointed out, "When you look at the winners and losers of this bill, it is nearly comically villainous". Meyers also updated his viewers on the latest development in Trump's sacking of FBI Director James Comey .

The speaker nodded to the political pressure the party is under to deliver on their signature campaign pledge.

They need to look beyond their re-election campaigns to reality. But, in a reversal of what the founding fathers intended, the Senate has become the chamber that is more sensitive to popular opinion than the House.

The Senate vote was postponed Tuesday amid a lack of sufficient support for the bill.

The CBO also estimated that federal spending on Medicaid from now until 2026 would be $772 billion less than what is projected to be spent under the current law. But the public has caught on.

The senator, also appearing on Fox News' "America's Newsroom," said McConnell has not yet given him an audience on some of his ideas for reform, including allowing group coverage for small businesses, rejecting bailouts for insurance companies, and eliminating a waiting period for people whose coverage has relapsed.
