The House of Representatives also is under pressure to approve the Senate bill instead of holding a conference to iron out differences between House and Senate. "You just have to decide which 10 days it is, but there may be just administrative obstacles that I'm not aware of about CBO scoring or getting a bill put together that might push it beyond July 4th".
"I've said from Day 1, and I'll say it again", said Sen.
John Kasich (R), Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D), Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R), Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D), Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) and Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) signed the letter. The House bill would phase out the money for increased Medicaid coverage by 2020.
The Republican-controlled Senate on Thursday night voted 30-2 for legislation that would raise the sales tax to 6.5 percent, cut income tax rates initially 5 percent and establish tiered coal production tax rates.
The only things that can prevent the passage of Trumpcare are the votes of a handful of vulnerable Republican Senators. And that's before awaiting a score from the Congressional Budget Office and taking a series of procedural votes on legislation, all while keeping party members on board and fighting off obstructive Democrats.
Collins has been a leading advocate for a deliberate health care reform process focused on giving more people access to care. It's an unsurprising bit of hypocrisy from Republican leadership, who long criticized the President Obama's Affordable Care Act for being created behind closed doors.

Rosenstein has been overseeing the Russian Federation probe since shortly after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself . He said he will fire Mueller only if there was a "good cause" for it, "it wouldn't matter to me what anybody said".
The official said the President does believe he's under investigation for obstruction as he indicated himself on Twitter . If Rosenstein recuses himself, Brand, a Trump appointee, would become the top Justice official overseeing Mueller's work.
This comes as the federal investigation and congressional inquiries into Russian interference in the election moves along. But Rosenstein, too, may ultimately have to hand off oversight of the probe given his own role in Comey's firing.
