Nevada senator announces opposition to health care bill

Referring to Republican senators opposed to the bill, he added: "They want to get some points, I think they'll get some points".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has finally unwrapped his plan for dismantling President Barack Obama's health care law. That's because unanimous opposition is expected from Democrats in a chamber in which Republicans hold a narrow 52-48 majority.

Passage would move President Donald Trump and the GOP closer to one of their marquee pledges - erasing Obama's 2010 statute. I don't see that leading it. "The level of hostility". Charles Schumer of NY and Elizabeth Warren of MA as "obstructionists".

Even Mr Obama wrote: I was careful to say again and again that while the Affordable Care Act represented a significant step forward for America, it was not ideal, nor could it be the end of our efforts.

"There's nothing in the Senate bill that specifically would allow withdrawal of coverage for a person with a preexisting condition", said Timothy Jost, emeritus law professor at Washington and Lee University in Virginia and an expert on health reform.

In a tweet last week after Georgia's special House election, Trump also criticized House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer. "This is going to be really something that Democrats can be proud of, and I'm excited about it". He supports the expansion of health savings accounts and giving Americans more freedom in choosing plans that are right for them.

The Senate measure maintains much of the structure of a House bill passed in May but differs in several key ways. "That is so not fair", said Conway, the senior counselor to President Trump, during a back-and-forth with CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota.

On Thursday Republican Senators touted their bill as avoiding those features. "Medicaid provisions included in this bill are particularly problematic".

"Health care is a very, very tough thing to get", Trump said. "Medicaid cuts of this magnitude are unsustainable and will increase costs to individuals with private insurance".

"It makes absolutely no sense to eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood", Ms. Collins told ABC News, noting that federal funds can not be used directly for abortion anyway. But she said it will be "extremely difficult" for the White House to be able to find a narrow path to attract both conservatives and moderates.

Dreaded ISIS chief al-Baghdadi may have been killed: Russian Federation
Rami Abdulrahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights , cast doubt on the report Baghdadi may have been killed . Lavrov added on a cautious note that if al-Baghdadi's death is confirmed, its importance mustn't be overestimated.

Of course, the Republican holdouts in the Senate may want a number of other changes to the GOP bill.

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". John McCain has said how he will vote. "That's the kind of thing we're trying to fix".

He pulled out the Senate Republican bill.

As lawmakers made speeches about the legislation on the Senate floor, a protest erupted outside McConnell's personal office, with many people in wheelchairs blocking a hallway, holding signs and chanting: "No cuts to Medicaid". One state would see a 77 percent cut, and eight others at least 25 percent less in federal spending by the end of that period.

"And shifting the costs of the Medicaid program from the federal government to the states is not better for New Jersey patients or taxpayers". In Cassidy's Fox News interview, for example, co-host Steve Doocy said the Republican bill "eliminates the individual and employee mandate", and people will "love" such a change.

The proposal released Thursday calls for a slower phase-out of the Medicaid expansion than a bill adopted earlier by the House.

"We anticipate it will be hundreds of thousands of Oregonians that will be stripped of health care under this proposal in order to get a tax break for wealthy Americans", said Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat. "I think it's nice to have it set aside it specifically for that, and that they took the time to highlight the issue, which is completely bipartisan". "We don't have too much of a choice, because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare".

Trump went on to acknowledge that not everyone would be happy with the GOP's replacement legislation for the Affordable Care Act. They're not particularly good for people who are sicker, and they're not good for people who are older.

Collins spoke on ABC's "This Week".

Sanders has long advocated a single-payer health care system, what he calls "Medicare for all", and he repeated that position on Meet the Press on Sunday.
