Arrests at Capitol of health bill protesters

Arrests at Capitol of health bill protesters

That doesn't concern Mitch McConnell.

"It's going to be very hard to get me to a yes", Heller said. Though he lauded its passage in a Rose Garden ceremony, Trump last week privately called the House measure "mean" and called on senators to make their version more "generous".

The 28 female and 15 male protesters who were arrested were transported to Capitol Police headquarters for processing, authorities said.

"Everyone's going to have to give".

The White House is preparing for a roller coaster week until a vote.

Senate Rand Paul (R-KY), who does not support the bill as it now stands, also appeared on the show and said he would like to "legalize affordable insurance", and ultimately have Medicaid patients go on "inexpensive" plans - likely private plans. Early next week, the Congressional Budge Office will submit a report evaluating how many people would lose their insurance due to the bill as well as its impact on the federal budget.

I hope the Senate Majority Leader took notice.

Sen. Rob Portman's GOP colleagues have given him a golden chance to show his fellow Ohioans that he's a man of conviction, not just another opportunistic politician. "You have to protect Medicaid expansion states".

The proposed Medicaid changes were not initially a major point of discussion surrounding consideration of the House bill, the KFF poll notes, which may partly explain why many respondents were unaware of its effect.

Sailing - Winds of change for America's Cup in Bermuda Triangle
The 40-year-old British skipper had mixed fortunes in Bermuda, but his development team won the Red Bull Youth America's Cup . Both boats pushed the protest button, and the umpires decided Spithill didn't give Burling enough room.

But in both cases, McConnell has leverage. They don't care. The Democrats won't vote for them no matter what they do and the others aren't threatening to withdraw campaign support.

Also aiding McConnell is the fact that Republicans have campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare for more than seven years.

Tucked inside the Republican bill to replace Obamacare is a plan to impose a radical diet on a 52-year-old program that insures almost 1 in 5 Americans. Among respondents who supported President Donald Trump, 55 percent approved of the Republican bill, compared with 69 percent in May.

Under the Senate bill, premiums tax credits are based on income, age, and geography.

"It does not keep our promises to the American people".

According to the experts, it wouldn't be surprising if the bill were to fail. "We're not looking to play the blame game".

"Could you imagine tomorrow if finally we had a Zika virus vaccine, and that vaccine costs $50K a dose?" said Sara Rosenbaum, a professor of health law and policy at George Washington University.

"This is how I propose to eliminate meetings behind closed doors". Orrin Hatch told CNN.

"Moving from an opposition party to a governing party comes with growing pains", Ryan said at the time.
