Louisiana House leaders want to pare spending in budget deal

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan House Speaker Paul D. Ryan

"And exactly what the composition of that [bill] is I'm not going to speculate about because it serves no goal", the Kentucky Republican told Reuters, adding that President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence could help whip votes again as they did for the House.

To spur his legislative agenda, Trump will meet with House Speaker Paul Ryan, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn Tuesday afternoon, according to a White House official.

President Donald Trump is meeting congressional leaders on Tuesday to push for efforts to overhaul the US healthcare and tax systems, as investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election campaign weigh on his administration. Richard Burr, R-N.C., came to the same conclusion and Sen.

"What's clear is we have to act", McConnell said.

One month after House Republicans narrowly passed a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, GOP lawmakers in the Senate are confronting similar roadblocks that made health care reform such a hard political task in the lower chamber.

The House GOP offer would remove dollars the Senate proposed to spend on health services, public colleges, state prisons, state police and the child welfare agency in the 2017-18 budget year.

Thune has been looking at ways to adjust the tax credits in the House bill to offer more assistance to elderly and lower-income Americans. Negotiators have moved away from the House bill, which the Congressional Budget Office said would save $834 billion over 10 years by cutting back Medicaid.

Yet another group, led by Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio), is focused on Medicaid expansion. "Realistically, our expectation would probably be after Labor Day", said White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short, who told reporters that the White House wants to put together one Republican plan.

Under the ACA, 31 states, including Nevada, and the District of Columbia, expanded Medicaid, which provided additional coverage for 11 million people, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. The Senate bill would presumably save less with a longer phaseout, yet the program that gives low-income people health insurance would still suffer a painful decrease ― and largely in the name of giving tax cuts to the wealthy. A White House official told CNN on Saturday that Trump would focus on infrastructure for the following week, including trips to OH and the Department of Transportation office in Washington.


"The Committee of Conference is more than appeasing an individual - the Committee of Conference does a lot of very in-depth work and understanding all the intricacies of the different lines", Hinch said.

Several senators, including Sen.

The Republican party wants to expedite its stalled efforts to pass a health care bill replacing the previous administration's legislation, but we didn't find evidence they were trying to pull a bait and switch.

And conservatives, like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) are question marks. Republicans must pass a bill by the end of the fiscal year in order to use the budget reconciliation process and also avoid a filibuster attempt by Democrats.

Republican senators appear to be aware of the potential problems.

Democrats oppose repeal of the ACA and instead want changes to improve the current system.

Despite his resistance to deadlines, McConnell promised in a press conference after the lunch to bring the bill to the floor "sometime in the near future", and his lieutenants have said they're willing to do that without enough votes to pass it in order to go through motions of the vote.

Price blamed Washington and the media amid inaction on health care reform. But Republican house leadership chose to make that decision on its own Tuesday, without input from the rest of the chamber.
