Republican senator has 'very serious' concerns on USA health-care bill

Dean Heller, R-Nevada, became the fifth Senate Republican to reject the measure. "I don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to review the Senate bill".

He has considerable firepower to win votes, by guaranteeing amendments that would address the concerns of individual Republican senators and playing on their loyalty to him and their fealty to conservative voters still demanding an end to the Affordable Care Act. "I want to see a bill with heart".

Trump has endorsed the bill, and Democrats say they will take every opportunity to link the legislation to an unpopular president. Activists and health organizations have argued that the bill's sweeping cuts to Medicaid would be life-threatening to many Americans. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, announced with three other Senate Republicans that they opposed the bill in its current form because it doesn't go far enough in repealing President Obama's health care law.

We could see a vote sometime this week.

The Senate bill resembles legislation the House approved last month that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said would mean 23 million additional uninsured people within a decade and that recent polling shows is viewed favorably by only around 1 in 4 Americans.

Schumer says Democrats have made clear they would be willing to work with Republicans to pass a Senate bill if they agree to drop a repeal of the Affordable Care Act and instead work to improve it.

Bengaluru entrepreneur loses forearm in crocodile attack, now booked for trespassing
The friends were out on a weekend trip and had planned to visit a temple in Thattekere inside the forest. As he chased the dogs out of the lake, one of the crocodiles jumped out of the waters and attacked him.

While discussing the Republican health bill during an interview on "Fox & Friends", Trump said it would be great if lawmakers from both parties could "come up something that everybody's happy with".

Already five Republican senators have said they can not vote for their party's plan as it stands now, with four them saying it does not go far enough to curb provisions under the Obama law and one saying the cuts in healthcare payments for the poor go too far.

"I'm anxious for negotiations to commence and conclude so that we can do 12 separate appropriations bills", said Moran, chairman of the Military Construction-VA Appropriations Subcommittee. Without the support of at least 50 of the 52 Republican senators, the long-anticipated bill likely is doomed.

"We have a very good plan", Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday.

Republicans have been saying for seven years that they want to repeal Obamacare, so I can hardly pretend to be surprised that they're doing it after winning the 2016 election.

I was diagnosed with stage 3b breast cancer at just 25, and I rely on Medicaid for my care. It might not get things done in the timeline the president wants it, but sometimes, to steal and modify a line from ex-Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington, "That's the way politics go". So there is well look their theme is resist. That means that Republican supporters of the legislation can only lose two Republican votes, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a tie-breaking vote if the Senate splits 50-50. Johnson spoke on NBC's "Meet the Press".
