'Lets Not Rush This': Senators Urge Health Care Vote Delay

Brian Hooks Charles Koch Mark Holden in Colorado Springs

Trump used the term "mean" during a meeting with senators earlier this month, according to reports, telling them that the Senate version should be "more generous".

U.S. President Barack Obama meets President-elect Donald Trump to discuss transition plans in the White House Oval Office, Washington, November 10. If three Republican Senators vote no on the Senate legislation, the measure will fail.

The holdouts are expressing willingness to negotiate, but many of them are pushing revisions that could risk alienating moderate Republicans in the process.

The issue is acute for many states that expanded healthcare eligibility under the joint federal-state Medicaid program.

Molina also said that the bill's proposal to tie cost-sharing subsidies to the lowest-level "bronze"-rated healthcare plans will make coverage less affordable, not more, by raising customers' out-of-pocket costs".

"That is why we need the Congressional Budget Office assessment", Collins said.

"I want to see a bill with heart". Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. I don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to view the Senate bill. But only by killing this bill would these senators open the way for reasonable fixes to the ACA.

The bill would let states get waivers to ignore some coverage requirements under Obama's law, such as specific health services insurers must now cover. That's their argument. But what this would also end up doing is it would leave sicker people and older people with dramatically higher costs that they'd be expected to pay.

The Senate bill is similar to the version of the House measure that passed last month.

Man catches teen falling from park ride: 'It's OK to let go'
Matthew Howard Sr. was just leaving a NY amusement park Saturday evening with his family when he heard someone screaming for help. In one video taken of the scene and posted on Facebook, one of the people can be heard shouting: 'We'll catch you, honey'.

"In this form I will not support it", he said.

"And honestly", he said, "nobody can be totally happy, even without the votes".

Trump also continued his attacks on Congressional Democrats on Twitter Monday, saying: "The Democrats have become nothing but OBSTRUCTIONISTS, they have no policies or ideas".

Under special rules McConnell is using that will block Democrats from using a filibuster to kill the bill, the legislation can not include provisions that make policy changes that don't primarily affect the budget. He is seeking to push a final package through the Senate before the July 4 recess. "If we went and got the single greatest health-care plan in the history of the world, we would not get one Democrat vote", President Trump told an Iowa crowd last Wednesday.

Cornyn made the comments Sunday at a private gathering hosted by the libertarian Koch brothers in Colorado.

Critics have pointed to how the BCRA would affect the health and security of millions of Americans, particularly poor Americans who rely on Medicaid for their health coverage. Ironically, in the Senate and House bills getting rid of Medicaid expansion, the state would lose an additional $37 billion, compared to states that did the full expansion, he said. Meanwhile, the Senate's number two Republican says the Senate is on pace to hold a key procedural vote on Wednesday.

Trump will lead the effort to try to convince reluctant Republicans to support the bill. I don't know that they would come down but they wouldn't go up as fast. "We don't have too much of a choice, because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare".

But the bill's supporters were battling a dire internal threat: reluctant Republicans.
