GOP senator is latest to oppose health bill

Like the House bill, it would repeal virtually all the tax increases imposed by the Affordable Care Act to pay for the program itself.

In a tweet, the former secretary of state wrote, "Forget death panels".

"Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor".

"We have to send the message to our elected officials and we depend on our elected officials to champion our cause in Washington", said Pamela Clarke, the health center's CEO. (See the exchange-implosion map here.) In short, the GOP Senate bill leaves in place what is arguably Obamacare's worst feature.

Barack Obama has called the Republican replacement for his signature healthcare legislation, Obamacare, a "massive transfer of wealth" from the poor and middle-class to the wealthy. It would put health care out of reach for many middle-income Americans.

Franken says after being crafted by Republican males behind closed doors, "as expected the bill does not address the real health care issues that people are facing and would be a disaster for the economic stability and livelihood of Minnesota families".

There have been reports Senate Republican leaders want to vote on the bill next week. Sen. Heller said he thought the bill would harm the elderly, the disabled and people battling substance abuse, adding that he is "not confident" it will lower costs for consumers.

Perfect shot: Durant's late 3 gives Warriors 3-0 Finals lead
James played all but 2:23 - when he sat the final 1:49 of the first quarter the Cavs went from up three to down seven. But history turned to infamy when they blew a 3-1 lead to the Cavaliers , the biggest collapse in NBA Finals history.

It turns out that if you simply kept that bridge in force, and tossed overboard the Paul Ryan flat tax credit, you'd solve all of these problems with the House bill.

The bill also scales back federal funding for Medicaid - which is more than half the spending for the program at the state level.

As a military veteran who uses the VA, and as someone who now works in the health care field, I believe a single-payer Medicare-for-all system is the only one that will truly work.

The Senate bill maintains much of the structure of the House bill but differs in key ways. Though he lauded its passage in a Rose Garden ceremony, Trump last week privately called the House measure "mean" and called on senators to make their version more "generous".

"We're pleasantly surprised with a lot of the support that's already come out and I think we'll continue to work through (it, ) in particular the four individuals who have expressed some ideas and concerns", White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters at a White House briefing.

Trumpcare 2.0 throws millions off healthcare, cuts Medicaid & weakens protections for pre-existing conditions.

"It doesn't protect Nevadans on Medicaid and the most vulnerable Nevadans", Heller said at a news conference in Las Vegas.
