Nevada Republican Senator Wavers On Health Care Bill

It was the latest signs of high-stakes maneuvering over a key campaign promise, and the president signaled a willingness to deal. And Washington Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell spoke in Seattle recently about how she's trying to oppose it.

Opponents of the Republican health care bill are taking actions to keep it from passing.

ROVNER: Well, of course, there's only 52 Republicans in the Senate.

Dennis, Sahil Kapur and Nathan Howard of Bloomberg News; by Sandhya Somashekhar, Sean Sullivan, Robert Costa and Kelsey Snell of The Washington Post; by Jonathan Martin, Alexander Burns and Maggie Haberman of The New York Times; and by Frank E. Lockwood and staff members of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

Cotton, a Republican from Dardanelle, said current health care law is collapsing and changes are needed. So I think what we'll see is we'll see deductibles higher. "The level of hostility".

The bill was a rare Trump initiative that received Democratic support. Elizabeth Warren in the same interview: "She's a hopeless case".

The bill would continue the Affordable Care Act's enhanced Medicaid expansion funding until 2021, and then phase it out over three years.

Liberal groups have already organized protests against the bill, and Sen. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!" he wrote.

Senator Susan Collins (R-M.E.) counts at least seven more, including herself, who are troubled by the bill's cuts to Medicaid.

"I'm happy where I am and who I'm with because we share a lot of the same values and goals", Sanders said when asked if he'd be willing to partner with organizations on the left.

"He's more engaging, which means he has more personal relationships", said No. 2 House Republican Kevin McCarthy of California. Some of the GOP senators he'll need to persuade have built their own separate political identities in their home states and may be less inclined to embrace Trump.


"I would like to delay", said Sen. But he also stressed that no single bill is going to fix the system, and that it will be a long-term effort with multiple steps - potentially laying the groundwork for the group to support the bill with minimal changes. "We have a few people who are modestly, not standing on the rooftop screaming, they want to get some points". "They're doing the same old Washington thing, throwing more money at the problem". These include Heller in Nevada and Sen.

She also shared a study by the Center for American Progress that projects the bill now in the Senate could result in 18,000 to 28,000 additional deaths in the U.S.by 2026. "So, we have 142 pages to go through", she said.

The Republican senator told reporters Friday, "I wouldn't say they are losing it". John Cornyn of Texas said there is "a sense of urgency" to push forward but acknowledged the outcome is "going to be close". She was kind enough to join us from the Aspen Ideas Festival in Aspen, Colo. That message was at odds with Trump's Rose Garden celebration after the bill cleared the House, when he told lawmakers it was a "great plan".

The Congressional Budget Office plans to issue its analysis of the new bill as early as Monday.

GOP Senate leaders are presenting to their members for the first time Thursday a concrete health care plan. "But I think we're going to get it".

I've been discussing Obamacare's failures since the law was enacted in 2010. A White House official said the Trump has pushed his team to stay involved and plans to flex his negotiating muscle, the official said. Famous last words, right?

Arizona's Republican Gov. Doug Ducey said Friday the Senate GOP bill falls short of what his state needs. "We don't have too much of a choice, because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare".

Realizing they're outnumbered, Democrats and their liberal allies were planning events around the USA over the next few days aimed at building public opposition to the bill.

Trump remained confident, but acknowledged that a "negotiation" might be needed to get the bill passed.

Hutchinson is seeking permission from the Trump administration to make conservative adjustments to the program in Arkansas, including instituting a work requirement for many enrollees.
