Rand Paul would prefer a Senate health bill that repeals Obamacare

Its fate remained uncertain since the four lawmakers' refusal to back the Senate draft would leave Republicans short of the votes to pass it. "It does not keep our promises to the American people", said Senator Rand Paul, who along with fellow Republican Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Ron Johnson said they could not support it in its current form.

He said that if Republicans come up with a plan that is "demonstrably better than the improvements we made to our health care system, that covers as many people at less cost, I would gladly and publicly support it". Dean Heller says he "simply will not support" the bill, which he says is "not the answer". Many Republicans oppose the group because it provides abortions, the AP said. The House bill called for $880 billion of cuts; the Senate version's are reported to be even greater.

Trump shares that view, and passage of the Senate bill would move the president much closer to being able to boast about the adoption of a marquee piece of legislation, a feat he has so far been unable to accomplish. If it passes, it would have to be reconciled with the House version before Trump could sign it into law. About 263,000 Mainers, many in Maine's poorest counties, rely on Medicaid for care. That would focus the aid more on people with lower incomes than the House legislation, which bases its subsidies on age.

The Senate bill changes the tax credit formulas that help people afford their premiums through the exchanges to make them less generous.

Obamacare has been credited with expanding health coverage to many more Americans.

Majority leader Mitch McConnell insists he wants a vote before the fourth of July recess, leaving GOP leaders one week to win over more votes.

Overall, as rightly pointed out by Spencer Perlman, director of health-care research at Veda Partners, the Senate plan has the "same architecture" but with "nicer furnishings".

"We live in the wealthiest country on earth".


The bill includes misleading "protections" for children by proposing to exempt them from certain Medicaid cuts. The program now gives states all the money needed to cover eligible recipients and procedures.

By 2024, the bill would end Obamacare's federal money to expand Medicaid, which has allowed 4 million Californians to get insured.

"You have to protect Medicaid expansion states".

While Republicans control both chambers of Congress and the White House, the party's efforts to unwind Obamacare have been dogged by internal conflicts between moderate and hard-line members of the party. "Instead of throwing tens of millions of Americans off of health insurance, we must guarantee health care as a right to every American".

"[The Senate bill] would phase out the expansion of Medicaid that lots of states signed onto to give more people health care, beginning in 2020, and make deeper cuts after that", says Zwillich.

"Medicaid's not actually being cut from our perspective", Republican Sen.

"Because Obamacare is a direct attack on the middle class, and American families deserve better than its failing status quo", McConnell said.

The bill would cut and redesign the Medicaid program for low-income and disabled people, and erase taxes on higher earners and the medical industry that helped pay for the roughly 20 million Americans covered by Obama's law. If Republican leadership continues to push for a quick vote on the bill, without hearings, debate or full consideration of amendments, responsible senators like Susan Collins must reject it.
