Big moment for Obamacare repeal: CBO score due Wednesday

Ryan indicated the bill will be the sent the Senate after the Congressional Budget Office releases its analysis of the bill, which is expected next week.

"We've been discussing health care in lunches and private meetings and so that work continues, but obviously as there's new revelations every day coming in the press concerning the White House, it makes it more hard for us to pursue an agenda here, " she said. They were voting on a major piece of legislation without fully knowing its ramifications, since the Congressional Budget Office had yet to score its final version. This has provoked a huge outcry among Americans at town halls and elsewhere.

Making a few changes to the Senate's proposal, the West Virginia House passed its revenue bill Friday.

Shifting sands of political negotiation on a bill increasing Kansas taxes Thursday claimed a new victim - Senate Bill 30 - after House negotiators withdrew an offer to the Senate for simultaneous votes on almost full repeal of tax cuts signed five years ago by Gov. Sam Brownback. This bill still left us in a huge budget hole. Like what you're reading?

"I'm really delighted with some of the policy changes that are in the bill", Del. Some members, such as Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Rand Paul of Kentucky, are most focused on reducing tax rates, regardless of its impact on projected revenue.

"I had no idea", Dennis Ross of Florida, another member of the vote-counting team, said Thursday, adding that the prospect of another vote "does concern me". He asked McCarthy if there would need to be another vote on the bill and when it will be sent to the Senate.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi's spokesman, Drew Hammill, said the bill was increasingly becoming a liability for Republicans and "has no chance of success in the Senate, and now may even have to come back to the House to be amended".

The Senate version of a bill eliminating oil and gas tax credits is very different than the House bill, so that could lead to another conference committee.

Kim said Haase and Long employs 35 people in Lawrence and pays its employees a living wage, plus full health benefits and retirement contributions. As the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget has noted, if the plans lure a lot of young and healthy people into the insurance market, each of those people will receive a tax credit, which will eat away at the previous version's deficit savings.

Legislators also haven't agreed on how much they should increase the state's aid to its 286 local school districts, now about $4 billion a year. The back and forth was a more common component of Hoyer's interaction years ago with Missouri Republican Roy Blunt before Blunt himself was transmitted to the Senate. "But again, not anxious".

- Towing companies, self-storage operators and collection agencies pushed back Wednesday against a Kansas House plan that would levy sales taxes on their services as the Senate tax committee opened hearings on a bill just passed by the House on Monday that would repeal the sales tax exemptions that now apply to their businesses. It's possible that the last-second amendments which helped the AHCA pass in the first place could end up costing hundreds of billions of dollars.

Congressman Dennis Ross (R-FL) was not aware that House leadership was holding onto the bill. But it wasn't deemed important enough for citizens to see the score before their representatives voted on it.

The committee substitute for HB 107 passed the House Finance Committee by voice vote with seemingly bipartisan support, according to Storch. A revote may be only a narrow, worst-case scenario.
