Revisions Made To GOP Health Care Bill To Target Key Votes

Kimmel has been speaking about the topic sporadically - once after his son, Billy, was born earlier this year, and again in recent days, as a new Republican effort to pass a repeal of Obamacare backed by Senators Cassidy and Graham gained some momentum.

Under the new bill, Alaska would see a small drop in federal funding, which backers of the bill say would be compensated by the money that it would save on its Medicaid program. Even after Hatch reconvened the hearing, some of the demonstrators could still be heard shouting in the hallway.

On Sunday, Graham-Cassidy backers circulated a list of revisions that would redirect additional money to ME and to Alaska - the home of Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana nor does it include information on how Graham-Cassidy would affect the cost of premiums throughout the country. Senate Republicans are looking to vote on the bill this week, before a deadline at the end of September would require they get support from Democrats to be able to pass the legislation. Collins voted against every Obamacare repeal bill proposed by Senate Republicans.

Several outside analyses found that the Graham-Cassidy bill would result in 32 million people would lose their health insurance over the next two decades.

She cited higher costs and the bill's provision weakening protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Still, protesters, some in wheelchairs, were carried and dragged out of the hearing room by U.S. Capitol police.

Last-minute score pushes Penn State past Iowa, 21-19
Catch it, will ya: Brandon Polk dropped a completion that would have sustained a Penn State possession in the second quarter. According to Mark Emmert of Hawk Central , there are still 4,000 seats available for the contest against the Nittany Lions.

A summary of the revised version also projects increases in federal Medicaid funding for Arizona and ME, compared with prior estimates.

"The state budget that the governor just signed is only $56 billion", Stabenow noted.

For seven years, Republicans have hammered Obamacare, which extended health insurance to some 20 million Americans, as an unwarranted and costly government intrusion into healthcare, while also opposing taxes it imposed on the wealthy.

In Monday night's debate on the all-but-dead Graham-Cassidy healthcare plan, Bernie Sanders called the Republican plan a "disaster" - and he did it while standing right next to Sens.

The Graham-Cassidy measure would repeal the ACA subsidies and Medicaid expansion, ultimately block granting health care funding to the states. The revised plan would make it easier for states to waive some federal insurance regulations. "I want to do my own research". King said in a statement Monday.
