A repeal-and-replace disaster

The four holdouts, among the Senate's most conservative members, said the plan failed to rein in the federal government's role, highlighting Republicans' struggle to craft legislation to revamp a sector that accounts for one-sixth of the world's largest economy. Over all, the Senate would reduce federal spending by about $1 trillion over 10 years and use nearly that much to cut taxes for rich families and health care companies.

The GOP-controlled Senate bill introduced Thursday would phase out federal money to states which opted to expand the low-income health insurance program.

Republicans were more likely than Democrats and independents to say they would be better off under a replacement plan, by a ratio of 3-to-1.

The Senate plan to replace Obamacare is already in danger.

-Delay a new "Cadillac" tax on high-cost health insurance plans until 2026.

"No argument against Trumpcare is more eloquent than the grave consequences it means in people's lives", she wrote colleagues.

"It confuses me as a consumer why this needs to be done in secret and debated in such a short amount of time", says Connor.

"It is a disgrace that Senate Republicans are trying to force an extremely unpopular bill on the country, in one week", Sen. "That has caused a great deal of disruption in the health care system in Iowa, resulting in many people losing coverage, or not having access to coverage that they had before". Mike Lee are now opposing the bill, stating that they might come around to supporting the same if a few changes are made to it, since their original agenda - repealing Obamacare - is not being fulfilled by the current draft of the bill.

In a message to his supporters, Obama urged people to demand compromise from their lawmakers before senators vote on the Republican bill next week. A week or so, assuming a major vote before the July 4 recess, appears even worse a rush to get a health care financing bill, but not necessarily a bill that's good for health care for many Americans. He said the Medicaid cuts contained in the Senate bill are even deeper than the House version.

Here's an example from 2014 and another from 2017 , just to prove that this has been happening for a long time. Dunn and/or Markkanen must become impact players or this trade will be one of the worst of the decade.

So no matter the new name and a few tweaks, the bottom line of the Senate bill is the same: Millions of poorer people will lose their health insurance so that the richest Americans can get a huge tax cut they don't need.

"Rural America has an older population", he said.

This bill also gets rid of the Obamacare mandates, where you had to get insurance or pay a fine.

Meanwhile, liberals insist action to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act - Obamacare - is nothing more than politics.

The vote was largely symbolic, because that measure was destined for a certain veto by then-President Obama, but Collins left a marker for her colleagues, telling them where she would not go.

Former US President Barack Obama has slammed the Republican Party's new healthcare bill, which he said would transfer wealth from the poor to the rich.

The program now helps low-income adults, their children, people with disabilities, pregnant women and the elderly in nursing homes.

The Senate bill does keep more of Obamacare's protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
