Parsing through the details of the GOP's health care bill

Republican leaders in the chamber have indicated that they hope to hold a final vote on the measure - the Better Care Act - next week.

Appealing to Congress and the United States people, Mr Obama said the 142-page plan had a "fundamental meanness" at its core and was "not a healthcare bill".

With Democrats and independents unified in opposition, McConnell can only afford to lose two of the 52 GOP votes in the Senate.

Obamacare and Medicaid enjoy far more public support than the emerging Republican health care plan, according to a new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The president will lead the effort to try to convince reluctant Republicans to support the bill.

Mr Obama wrote that "health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did". The proposal would impose long-term federal spending cuts on the program.

Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst is suggesting Iowans would not be losing Medicaid coverage even as the Senate GOP health care bill would phase out financing to expand the low-income insurance program.


"But there are going to be lots of opportunities for Mitch McConnell next week, when this bill's on the floor, to make deals, to make amendments and to try to give senators things that they want to get their votes", says Zwillich.

The Nevada senator joins four other Republicans in expressing opposition to the draft bill as it is now written.

Health care stocks pulled back Friday, but the sector was still on track to post a weekly gain of more than 3 percent. "The Senate bill may be even meaner".

If three Republican senators vote "no" on the legislation, the measure will fail, CBS2's Jessica Moore reports.

-Congressional Budget Office analysts review the bill and its effect, both on Americans and the nation's finances. She said that a loss in federal funding could be detrimental to patients who rely on health care services including dentistry, OB/GYN, and pediatric medicine.

"This is not a huge surprise", said Young, whose research and teaching interests focus on health law and healthcare management.

"We have to protect our citizens and this is going to be very hard for us", he said. It also would end tax penalties on people who don't buy insurance policies and on larger firms that don't offer coverage to workers, while phasing out the extra money given to states that expanded their Medicaid programs to offer insurance to the working poor.
