GOP lawmaker says Arizona should recall McCain during cancer fight

Cassidy and Graham pitted their proposal against Sanders' vision for a single-payer health care system. Susan Collins (R-Maine) tweeted her opposition to the bill, becoming the third Republican to do so.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said "millions" of Americans would lose coverage under the Graham-Cassidy bill and projected it would impose $1 trillion in Medicaid cuts through 2026. The bill faces a Saturday deadline, and the GOP can only afford two dissenting votes.

"We don't know why they did it", Trump said of Collins, John McCain of Arizona and Kentucky 's Rand Paul.

The only remaining hope for Republican party leaders is to change opponents' minds.

The Senate Finance Committee is meeting Monday in an effort to build support for the bill.

Protest erupting in Washington ahead of the only Senate hearing on the Graham-Cassidy bill.

After returning the hearing to order, Hatch told protesters, "If you can't be in order, then get the heck out of here". When the hearing resumed, he pleaded, "Let's have a civil discussion".

U.S. Sen. Edward J. Markey held an emergency health care meeting yesterday, where MMS president Dr. Henry L. Dorkin warned that the Graham-Cassidy bill would harm children with pre-existing conditions like asthma and cystic fibrosis by slashing their coverage.

The latest Republican push to repeal key parts of the Affordable Care Act appears to have met the fate of all previous Senate repeal efforts this year - it doesn't have the votes needed to pass the chamber.

Proponents argued the status quo will bankrupt America.

The bill, sponsored by Republican Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsay Graham, aimed to eliminate key portions of Obamacare, including the system whereby citizens are fined if they do not obtain health insurance and government subsidies are provided to insurers to expand Medicaid. "They're going to claw back that money from Republican states to give to Democrat states". "We need to find a better way", he said.

The GOP is now overhauling the bill to make it more Alaska-friendly, according to reports.

It was a major blow for President Donald Trump, who has made repealing former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law his top legislative priority.

"There are some things that are good in the bill". She lives with her family in Cottage Grove and says without Medicare, her 6-year-old who lives with non-verbal severe autism would immediately start to regress.

"Here's what happened: My wife and I were anxious about health care". And that's because this bill would have taken all this money from the Affordable Care Act and instead redistribute it to states to design their whole - their own health plans.

Leaving a lunch of Republican senators who'd gathered to discuss their next steps on the issue, Sen.
