Senate to White House on health care: No Trump, please

22 June 2017

Senators could vote on their version of the healthcare plan next week before their summer recess begins.

According to NBC News, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the announcement on Tuesday, June 20, that he would be releasing a "discussion draft" of the bill to the members of the Republican party and the American public on Thursday.

"Just about everything was done in public", said Jim Manley, a top aide to then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. He added, "If Republican leadership says we can't act on the Senate bill, here's an easy solution: Let's introduce an identical House version and we can vote on that instead".

However, the biggest indication of what President Trump and Republicans will do to fix "this disaster" is a line reiterating that Trump has pledged to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

Three Democrats tried to make a point by live streaming a visit to the Congressional Budget Office, where they failed to get a copy of the GOP plan.

"House Republicans are considering using a procedural excuse to hide what they're really doing: covering for a president who has been far too soft on Russia", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement, Bloomberg reported.

As previously reported, the impact caused his Bronco truck to flip over. "I and @keleighperry are ok". The report revealed Teller was initially taken to a detox center and not the police station.

McConnell's criticism of the ACA was unfair - the major parts of the bill passed through regular order after 160 hours of debate on the Senate floor, and it ultimately included 171 Republican amendments.

"I strongly support sanctions against Iran and Russian Federation to hold them accountable", Brady told reporters.

"You say that Democrats aren't interested, but they aren't invited into your-" Cordes started. "We had thousands of people standing up and cheering us on, saying we're going to repeal it and now they've gotten pretty weak-kneed and I think they want to keep it", Sen.

The sources said that in some instances, the documents McConnell planned to release might suggest optional approaches for issues that remain in dispute among Republicans.

The Senate proposal is expected to cut back the expansion of Medicaid, the government program for the poor, and reduce subsidies to people buying private insurance. That might satisfy Republican senators from states that expanded their programs, but conservatives have wanted to halt the extra expenditures quickly. And another conservative, Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., told The New York Times, adding that "people get buy-in along the way and understand what's going on". Among them, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) seemed the most concerned about the direction the GOP Senate was heading. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said GOP senators will be briefed on the emerging bill Wednesday and he expects to see the legislation the next day, about a week before a vote occurs.
