Senate pushes for healthcare vote by end of the month

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 01:13

While Republican Senate leaders tried to publicly project optimism, they repeatedly ducked when pressed about a possible timeline and refused to discuss any specifics of the bill they're drafting behind closed doors.

Even for someone right in the thick of the action, the details of the Senate's rewrite of the GOP healthcare bill seems like a mystery.

"No matter what Republicans claim, they're working as hard as they can to jam their version of Trumpcare through the Senate to deliver a political win for President Trump and massive tax breaks for those at the top", Democratic Sen. "We don't have time to do this in a couple of weeks". "I was not a member of this committee at the time, although I would have liked to be", Sen.

"I don't know how we get to 50 (votes) at the moment". Leadership has largely been in "listening mode", that aide said, and it's not clear yet how they will be able to consolidate the wide-ranging input it has received from across the conference.

While we're all distracted by James Comey's Senate appearance to testify about Russia's involvement in the election and his meetings with Donald Trump, the Senate is stealthily ramming through its disastrous Obamacare replacement.

"I think we recognize that this is a crisis that needs to be addressed", Short said, pointing to rising prices and shrinking choices for some consumers under the existing system.

"'Cause this is not like fine wine, it doesn't get better with age", he added with a laugh. "Decisions have to start being made in order to get the package ready". How and whether to unwind states' Medicaid expansion presents the biggest hurdle, as a number of Republican senators in states that expanded coverage are deeply opposed to throwing people off healthcare. But lawmakers emerging from the room were tight-lipped about what exactly is on the table. "I am thinking it through", said Sen.

"What the big print giveth the small print taketh away".

Sen. Lindsay Graham is among a host of GOP lawmakers who say efforts to pass a new health care bill by the end of this year are in trouble.

Some Republicans say they will have a vote before July 4, according to The Wall Street Journal. Cassidy explained that protections for pre-existing conditions and slower roll back of the Medicaid expansion were instrumental in his support for the bill.

Teacher raises proposed by the House and Senate would vary depending on experience.

Debt ceiling: The nation's debt level is quickly reaching its ceiling. Toomey argues that using the growth rate of medical care spending would lead to an unsustainable Medicaid program, so he advocates for tying Medicaid funding increases to the standard inflation rate instead.

Two other reasons are tied to the method by which the GOP plans to pass whatever tax reform legislation it winds up crafting.

His comments came amid continuing turmoil among ruling Republicans in Washington, where in the Senate the GOP has a narrow 52-member majority in the 100-member body as it seeks to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, former President Barack Obama's signature health care law.

Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy suggested he was comfortable with the bill still being written, though he noted he hadn't seen final text. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) downplayed the possibility, but told reporters, "I'm talking about tax reform already".

"I think there's a consensus on parts of the plan".

However, adjusting the tax credits for income and geographic location would make them even more similar to Obamacare's premium subsidies, which are tax credits based on income and cost of coverage in one's area.

The differing ideas reflect not only contrasts in policy but sensitivities to opposite ends of the political spectrum, with some concerned about an electoral backlash from centrist or left-leaning voters who oppose major changes to Obamacare and others anxious a less aggressive assault on the ACA will leave right-leaning opponents of the law dispirited.
