Senate Obamacare Repeal Vote Could Happen As Soon As Next Week

Messalina Adamo | 20 Giugno, 2017, 18:11

McConnell wants a Senate vote before the chamber leaves town for a July 4 recess, giving Democrats scant opportunity to rally resistance against a major bill whose contents are unknown.

Even some Republicans are frustrated by the closed-door meetings.

Also watch for the Medicaid expansion to be phased out more slowly than the steep cliff proposed by House Republicans.

Sen. Roger Wicker said Tuesday that there will be a score on the Senate Republican health care plan before any voting takes place. The procedural move is a tactic the minority party can use to draw out the legislative process for days, forcing Republicans to jump through procedural hurdles to get anything done. He is responsible for the extreme secrecy of the health-care legislative process, which is reportedly created to reduce pressure on GOP senators from affected interest and advocacy groups, but is rapidly becoming a public-relations problem in itself.

"When this happens, she isn't thinking about the health care bill in Congress", the narrator says.

"The only thing more secret than Republicans' health care bill is Donald Trump's tax returns", said Sen. The reconciliation process that is being used on the health care bill only allows for 20 hours of debate.

"If it is an effort to rush it from a small group of people, straight to the floor in an up or down vote, that would be a problem", Senator Marco Rubio told CNN Sunday. For his part, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is defending the closed health care talks. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) told reporters on Monday evening. We have not had one hearing, not one open discussion. "We understand the issue very well and we are now coming up with a solution".


Schumer said the "shameful Trumpcare bill" would provide tax breaks for the country's most wealthy people and make middle-class citizens pay more for less health care.

In response, Republicans have sought to shut up their Democratic counterparts, preferring silence over the traditional give-and-take associated with this sort of legislation. Asked to comment, a spokesman for Republican Majority leader Mitch McConnell said only that the Senate meant to vote on nominees for Trump administration positions in the coming days.

McConnell said all Republican senators have been involved to some degree in healthcare meetings and that Democrats would have a chance to amend the legislation they produce, once it is brought to the Senate floor.

"There's one estimate that Arizona would have to pick up, eventually, $3 billion in costs on health care, just because of this bill", he said. The bill still needs to be scored by the Congressional Budget Office, but even that process is being expedited as the Senate is sending the CBO various policy proposals for pre-scores.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) in March was forced to pull the original bill from the floor after learning that it did not have sufficient support to pass.
