Senate Dems Wants Details Of GOP Health Care Bill

They also plan to hold the Senate floor tonight with speeches about health care.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said, "Republicans are drafting this bill in secret because they're ashamed of it, plain and simple".

"They're talking about a whole new way of delivering health care" and people don't know the details, Stupak said of Republicans. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) can only afford to lose two Republican votes. "We think it's critical that Americans across the country understand what's at stake for them and their families if the U.S. Senate passes this bill".

"We believe we can and must do better than Obamacare's status quo", he said.

The two headline items of this Congress were supposed to be tax reform and repeal-and-replace of ObamaCare. And so far not a single lawmaker has told us that a bill exists and that they have seen the language.

Senator Kamala Harris (D-California) said that the Senate bill is almost identical to the bill that passed through the House, which President Donald Trump reportedly called "mean, mean, mean" during a meeting with Republican Senators last week. Both chambers would have to agree on the language in order for the repeal measure to become law. President Donald Trump recently called the AHCA "mean" and asked senators to craft a bill that is "more generous".

Democrats will take advantage of Senate rules which allow any member to object to moving forward with routine business, a Democratic aide said. "You can't get reconciliation instructions if you don't pass a budget", Jordan said at a recent forum at the conservative Heritage Foundation.

Republicans in the House have already passed their version, but those writing the Senate bill are doing their work in private ahead of next week's planned vote.

Still, Mr. McConnell has reasons to try to vote quickly on the health-care bill: the pressure could force lawmakers to reach a consensus on sticking points that have divided them for weeks.

Collins' criticism and the scrutiny of other Republicans is important because of the 52-to-48 margin that the party holds in the Senate.

This is not normal.

State Republicans called Blumenthal's hearing a political stunt, saying he has done little to help the state deal with rising healthcare costs and other problems that Republicans attribute to the Affordable Care Act. In comparison, city councils get nothing done, even though they are made up of a lot of people.

MCEVERS: And McConnell says he wants a vote on this bill before the July 4 congressional recess.

So, the GOP is working on their product but still won't do so in full view of Democrats, who are making noises about what they view as the more transparent Affordable Care Act drafting process, which saw almost 100 hearings and 25 days in session on the subject.

"When he says drain the swamp, it's not just about getting rid of all the crocodiles in the water that we don't need".

Adam Shaw is a politics reporter for Breitbart News based in NY.

"If there is not going to be a hearing, then we shouldn't vote", said Sen. I think that's the difference.
