Oppose the Graham-Cassidy health reform bill

Mitch Mc Connell Is Launching One Final Gutless Attack To Kill Obamacare

But some of the same GOP senators who blocked various stages of earlier repeal efforts are withholding their support. "In fact I said it the last time". If there are any people out there who voted Republican because they want Obamacare repealed, I suggest you start paying attention because clearly you haven't been.

Graham and Cassidy say that Pence has been telephoning Republican senators and governors.

"They're going nuts. They're going absolutely insane", Graham said.

On Sunday, McCain repeated his view that a health plan needs to go through the committee process and gain bipartisan support - both of which are unlikely with the clock ticking and Democrats united against an Obamacare replacement.

And in case you were thinking the current bill is somehow more moderate or acceptable than the old ones, well...you don't know Republicans. While the House approved its version of the bill in May, the drive collapsed when the GOP-led Senate defeated three proposals for scrapping Obama's 2010 overhaul in July. But Trump has been banging the drum on Twitter for weeks, and health care experts and Congressional watchers have begun to talk about the increasing likelihood of Graham's bill passing. Boeing wins Air Force One design contract Senate votes down Paul's bid to revoke war authorizations MORE (R-Ky.) said he's anxious the latest attempt to repeal ObamaCare might pass, and the unintended consequences could be severe. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), would repeal the individual and employer mandate as well as a number of the taxes established under the ACA.

Already, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has said he will not vote for the measure because it leaves too much of the Affordable Care Act in place. To pass the measure with a simple majority of 51 votes, the Senate must abide by certain rules and vote by September 30, which is the end of the government's fiscal year. Sanders said, "The immediate concern is to beat back these disastrous Republican proposals that would throw millions and millions of people off of the health insurance they have, raise premiums for older workers very substantially, cut Medicaid by hundreds of billions".

"We're crunching those numbers", he said.

Not all the Senate's conservatives back the bill.

"Of course block grants are much better than the other way of doing things, having the money be allocated by Washington", McMaster said. Republican (and sometimes Democratic) governors have always been cheerleaders for this concept, though they are generally not as willing as members of Congress or conservative activists to contemplate a compete federal abandonment of Medicaid to the states at some point down the road. As a result, it will redistribute a lot of money from the 31 expansion states to the 19 non-expansion states.

Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson treats all Americans the same no matter where they live.

President Donald Trump has been telephoning members of Congress in recent days urging action on dismantling Obamacare. Senator John Cornyn, the No. 2 Republican leader, said last week that he'll gauge support for the bill, and the topic is expected to be discussed again privately by Senate Republicans on Tuesday.

Several healthcare groups have come out against the Graham-Cassidy bill, including the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, and the March of Dimes, among others, the New York Times reports.
