Trump confirms he called health care bill 'mean'

26 June 2017, 04:26 | Gladys Abbott

Walker said he's spoken with McConnell and other Senate leaders and called on them to change the bill before holding a vote.

Trump didn't indicate what types of changes may be in store, but affirmed that he had described a US House-passed bill as "mean".

Price reiterated the argument he has made for months, saying the bills under consideration in Congress are only one part of the GOP's health care plan and that HHS will take action on the administration side to lower premiums - which Heller said the Senate's newly revealed bill will not do.

"And it doesn't have to be 100 percent repeal", said Mr. Paul.

Sandoval, a Republican who accepted Obamacare's Medicaid expansion in his state, said about 210,000 Nevadans gained health coverage under the law. I actually think that's better for patients. "I have a hard time believing my Wisconsin constituents or even myself will have enough time to evaluate this for even a motion to proceed. let's not rush this". "They're not addressing the root cause".

But Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said Sunday the Senate's current plan to overhaul health care "is not a full repeal or full replace". Unless those holdouts can be swayed, their numbers are more than enough to torpedo the measure developed in private by US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and deliver a bitter defeat for the president.

This first lie is important because it rationalizes the Republican claim that the bill has to be draconian because it can't pass without support from the party's most right-wing legislators. Since it's likely Democrats will unanimously vote against the bill, Republicans can afford to lose two votes before the bill is jeopardized.

We could see a vote sometime this week.

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

Johnson said he is looking forward to working with Senate leadership and the president to "improve the bill so it addresses the plight of the forgotten men and women by returning freedom and choice to health care".

As more analysis of the bill reached state officials, especially in places that expanded Medicaid access under the Affordable Care Act, misgivings grew.

"Senator Durbin doesn't want to talk about the fact that in IL they are way down on the number of people even selling insurance and prices are way up", he also said.

"Now when I look at where we are, at the size and effectiveness of this network, I'm blown away", he told donors.

Trump, in an interview that aired Sunday on Fox News, said, "I think we're going to get there", but acknowledged the complicated road in the coming days to "picking a plan that everybody is going to like".

The senator more staunchly condemns the measure for keeping too much of former President Barack Obama's landmark Affordable Care Act intact - "just with less spending on the poor to pay for corporate bailouts and tax cuts".

HEGSETH: I opened up the failing The New York Times and The Washington Post this morning, no mention at all of this bill that you're signing today.
