Republicans spread version of fake news

Susan Collins of ME and Rand Paul of Kentucky - have already said they will vote against a motion to proceed next week, leaving the legislation dead if one more Republican opposes it. Rob Portman (R-OH), who says he is now undecided on the bill as a vote approaches.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker said Friday a preliminary review by his administration of the latest version of the Senate GOP health care bill has not changed his view that it would be harmful to MA.

Trump also said Vice President Mike Pence, a former congressman with close ties to lawmakers, was "working hard on HealthCare and getting our wonderful Republican Senators to do what is right for the people".

Capito came out against the original Senate proposal June 27, the same day Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., announced a vote on the legislation would be delayed. He spent three weeks reworking the measure.

Perdue said he wants to make sure affordable plans are available for people with pre-existing conditions and that Medicaid funding is sustainable. And President Trump, who seems to care only about a "victory" that fulfills one of his most angry campaign promises about repealing the "disaster" of Obamacare (it wasn't and it isn't), cares not for the details.

The revised Senate health care bill draft - Better Care Reconciliation Act - allows health insurance companies to sell plans to Americans that do not include Obamacare's essential health benefits, such as mental health services and maternity care, notes Vox. It also adds $70 billion to subsidize higher-cost plans that many older and sicker Americans would be forced to obtain - which sounds ironically like the ACA provisions that Republicans have attacked as a "bailout" of insurers. But, deep Medicaid cuts remain.

Also weighing in was the American Medical Association, the physicians' organization, which said Medicaid cuts and "inadequate subsidies" in the bill would lead to "millions of Americans losing health insurance coverage". With "something that's really good and that people are going to like" - and by being "very angry" if the Senate, which is expected to take up the issue again next week, fails to present a really good, eminently likable something to him.

On Thursday, Senate Republicans unveiled their latest version of replacing Obamacare and this time, it included a version of an amendment by Sen. The Senate adopted the ACA only after approximately 100 hearings, roundtables, walkthroughs and other meetings, and after 25 consecutive days in continuous session debating the bill.

That brought New Jersey Sen.

Even from afar in Paris, President Donald Trump on Friday kept up the pressure on Republican senators to pass a repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

"Instead of having a one-size-fits-all solution from Washington, we should return dollars back to the states to address each individual state's health care needs", Graham said in a statement.

It also provides $45 billion to fight the opioid abuse crisis, a move aimed at placating moderate Republicans, notably Senator Rob Portman of OH and Senator Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia.
