Collins: GOP bill would affect 'most vulnerable'

17 July 2017, 02:10 | Anna Nguyen

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced late Saturday he was delaying the vote on the bill to repeal and replace the Obama-era health care law, which had been planned for this coming week.

Creates a fund for the objective of making payments to specified health insurance issuers for the associated costs of covering high risk individuals enrolled in the qualified health plans on the Affordable Care Act's Individual Exchange.

The 2008 Republican presidential nominee, McCain was resting comfortably at home in good condition after Friday's operation, his office said.

"But yes, I believe that when we have a full contingent of Senators that we'll have that vote and it's important that we do so", he added.

Sen. Ted Cruz has already unveiled a fix to nullify the exemption, but that bill would take 60 votes to overcome any filibuster attempts. "Surgeons successfully removed the 5-cm blood clot during a minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision". Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky. plans to roll out the GOP's revised health care bill, pushing toward a showdown vote next week with opposition within the Republican ranks. Moreover, a new poll by the Washington Post and ABC News shows that, by a two-to-one margin, Americans prefer keeping Obamacare to the plan being pushed by Senate Republicans. A revised version of the Bill he released earlier last week quickly drew two firm no votes - from senators Rand Paul of Kentucky and Susan Collins of ME - leaving the Kentucky Republican with no margin of error.

McConnell didn't specify when the bill would be voted on, saying only that the Senate will "defer consideration of the Better Care Act".

But the Senate Budget Committee on Sunday said the release had been postponed. The date that the score will be released is not clear.

McConnell, the chief author of the Senate health care plan to overhaul and dismantle key provisions of Obamacare, has been wheeling and dealing over the past several days to try to buy off a half dozen or so recalcitrant moderate and conservative GOP senators who are threatening to oppose the measure when it finally comes to the floor.

But, he said they are unlikely to dismantle the Obamacare law.

But he gave the most truthful explanation I've heard from a Republican politician all year about why the GOP can't get it together on health care reform.

Health care reformers, not to mention tens of millions of other Americans who understand money does not grow on trees, are caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place.

"More than 1.1 million Pennsylvanians have benefited from coverage and improved health as a result of the Affordable Care Act; this plan jeopardizes these gains and weakens the Medicaid program".

"This bill would impose fundamental, sweeping changes in the Medicaid program", Collins said. The lower House of Representatives passed legislation to do so in May. So you are asking me what number am I comfortable with - well, I don't know.

She also raised concerns that the plan's proposed opioid fund to help offset Medicaid cuts falls short of current resources available through the health care entitlement that help Americans receiving treatment for substance use disorders.

"Time is not the problem in the present healthcare bill". Paul told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday".
