Four Republican senators not ready to vote for healthcare bill

Look forward to making it really special!

Johnson then goes on to say the real problem with Obamacare is that it forces insurers to cover people with preexisting conditions and he trots out the party line that the AHCA cuts to Medicaid aren't actually cuts, so you know, don't go falling in love with the guy.

For one thing, the Senate bill is created to buy a skimpier plan than the Affordable Care Act's credit scheme does ― specifically, a plan that pays only 58 percent of the typical person's medical expenses (roughly equivalent to a "bronze" plan in today's system) rather than one that pays 70 percent of the typical person's medical expenses (a "silver" plan in today's system).

In a separate statement, Paul said he would vote against the bill "in its current form, but I remain open to negotiation".

Senate GOP bill: Forbids abortion coverage by plans sold to people who receive taxpayer subsidies.

Mr. Trump said during an interview on "Fox & Friends" that aired Sunday that Warren has a lot of "hatred" and "anger" that came out when Warren campaigned for Hillary Clinton, hurting the candidate's chances of winning the election.

"We agreed on the need to free Americans from Obamacare's mandate so Americans are no longer forced to buy insurance they don't need or can't afford", McConnell said on the Senate floor Thursday.

Four conservative senators expressed opposition but openness to talks: Sens.

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah said the Republican bill "keeps the Democrats' broken system intact". "And we'll see if we can take care of that".

Asked whether President Trump was doing enough to get the bill passed, he said: "We're trying to hold him back a little bit".

Sen. Susan M. Collins of ME is also on the fence, saying she is anxious that older Americans will have to pay more and that she won't be able to strip out a part of the bill that defunds Planned Parenthood over its abortion practice.

"Small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, can not change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation", he wrote in a Facebook post Thursday. The office's report on the House's health care bill, which is similar in many respects to the Senate measure, said if it became law, 51 million people would be uninsured by the year 2026 - meaning 23 million fewer people would have insurance coverage than if Obamacare remains the law of the land.

The House approved its version of the bill last month. White House press secretary Sean Spicer had called the "mean" comment just a rumor as recently as last week. This is something that the bill's authors are likely to include later but in the near term will worsen the score expected to be released by the Congressional Budget Office next week.

"The budget proposal that he sent forward shows that he doesn't care about the issue", Ogle said during an interview with NPR. The enhanced federal financing that pays for the expansion would disappear entirely in 2024.

That optimism runs counter to the public opposition of five Republican senators so far to the Senate GOP plan that would scuttle much of former President Barack Obama's health law.

The measure largely uses people's incomes as the yardstick for helping those without workplace coverage to buy private insurance.

He said the changes he is seeking to the bill would go in the opposite direction of those sought by other current "no" votes - conservative hard-liners including Texas Sen. Even if the Senate bill reduced that damage by half, it would qualify as a calamity, if not a crime. The legislation also would let people contribute more to certain tax-advantaged accounts. Trump has been threatening to discontinue those payments, and some insurance companies have cited uncertainty as a reason they are abandoning some markets and boosting premiums.
