McCain coy on new GOP health care bill that Flake, Ducey are backing

Graham-Cassidy Bill is GREAT! But Paul's arguments for a no vote make so little sense, and are so hard to square with his previous votes, that it is getting harder to dismiss. Amelia Chasse, a spokeswoman for Hogan, said the governor did not sign on to the letter, because he chose to put out his own statement opposing the bill.

Some Senate Republicans, who we'll call the less stupid, don't want to vote on this bill unless they know that it has the votes that it needs to pass.

The long-shot bill, which Senate leadership initially dismissed as a distraction, has been steadily gaining steam over the past week, with sponsors Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy saying they are close to 50 votes. On his Tuesday night show, Kimmel slammed legislation known as Graham-Cassidy for its two main sponsors, Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana.

Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman told reporters on Tuesday that he's still reviewing the bill and its impact on Ohio and will decide soon whether to support it.

The two lawmakers have been working on this bill for a few months but haven't gained much attention, according to CNN.

Clayton Kershaw allows first-ever grand slam to Aaron Altherr
The offensive outburst turned a loss into a win for Pivetta, who allowed just the two first-inning runs in six innings. Kershaw spent some time on the disabled list recently and since his return, his numbers haven't been great.

Democrats also complained that the GCHJ will not receive a full score from the Congressional Budget Office to measure the effects on insurance coverage and costs for Americans. "They want us to treat it like an iTunes service agreement", Kimmel said of the legislation. Cassidy-Graham is, instead, a cynical bait and switch strategy. It would let states ease coverage requirements under that 2010 law, end Obama's mandates that most Americans buy insurance and that companies offer coverage to workers, and cut and reshape Medicaid. "Murray and with other senators and come to a conclusion about what I think we can pass", Alexander said.

Shortly after, Cassidy, who was promoting earlier Obamacare replacement legislation he was co-sponsoring, created what he called the Jimmy Kimmel test for health reforms: "Would a child born with congenital heart disease be able to get everything she or he would need in the first year of life?"

Sen. Rand Paul R-Ky., has already said he is against the proposal and Trump jabbed him in a post as a "negative force" when it comes to "fixing healthcare".

"If you give California and NY a big chunk of money they're gonna set up a single-payer system".
