GOP senators oppose health care bill as written

"The chaos the Republican Party is wrecking across our health care system won't just be felt in our insurance markets but in doctor's offices, ER's and clinics across the state of in", says Myers. "The only people who are better off under their bill are millionaires and health insurance companies".

House bill: Insurers could charge older people up to 5 times more. That's Julie Rovner, chief Washington correspondent at Kaiser Health News. Toomey should help fix them instead of taking us backward.

Hillary Clinton put on the boxing gloves once again to fight back against the forthcoming Senate healthcare bill.

Sabri Ben-Achour: Dan, give us this bill by the numbers.

ROVNER: It differs in some significant ways. Much of those criticism has centered on how the bill's steep cuts to Medicaid, among other things, would amount to a death sentence for Americans who rely on the program.

House bill: Tax credits would be based primarily on age. And plans might be able to offer less coverage.

"No amount of eleventh hour reality-denying or buck-passing by Democrats is going to change the fact that more Americans are going to get hurt unless we do something", he said. Or as one economist described it, they'll face a choice between paying a premium they can't afford or paying a deductible they can't afford.

ROVNER: Well, they've been kind of skirting that. "And without the individual mandate, that sort of adverse selection, the death spiral, the elevated premiums, all of that that's going on gets worse under this bill".

Abbas on Kushner Talks: 'Sounded Like Netanyahu's advisers, Not Like Fair Arbiters'
McMaster and they will discuss the adminstration's next steps regarding the peace process, or whether to abandon it altogether. The report said Kushner will submit a report of what transpired after his meetings with Netanyahu and Abbas .

Yet McConnell plans to bring his bill to the floor without so much as a public hearing - and under rules that limit debate and prohibit a filibuster.

The Affordable Care Act became law in March 2010 and is widely regarded as the Obama Administration's most significant legislative achievement.

Both Paul and Cruz told reporters Thursday that they felt they could get to "yes" votes with tweaks to the proposal. They will confirm that it doesn't increase the deficit.

Ben-Achour: And fewer people covered. Those are exactly the people the Republicans have been complaining about.

The Better Care Reconciliation Act, as it is formally known, would significantly roll back federal Medicaid spending by capping cost growth, starting in 2021.

A major goal of Republican "reforms" is to greatly reduce the Medicaid program. How would it work under this Senate bill?

On Thursday, Obama ripped the Senate's version for its "fundamental meanness". His home state has taken advantage of federal funds to expand its Medicaid rolls: As of March, more than 630,000 Nevadans had enrolled for Medicaid coverage, nearly double the number of enrollees who signed up in the state before Obamacare, according to data compiled by the Kaiser Family Foundation. People would need to be lower-income than ACA to be eligible. Mark Warner, D-Va., says shouldn't even be referred to as a health care bill. That program is jointly funded by the states and the federal government.

States will be allowed to seek waivers from certain Obamacare requirements.
