GOP, Dem governors agree with Trump, call health bill 'mean'

Posted June 19, 2017

The CBO said that the so-called "Trumpcare" bill, which narrowly passed by U.S. House last month, would also reduce federal deficits by $119 billion between 2017 and 2026.

"In the Senate, what you have is you have I believe it is 10 Republicans working behind closed doors to address one-sixth of the American economy", he said.

The House GOP bill would phase out Medicaid expansion in 2020. Moderate GOP senators have been pushing to ease those efforts.

The Democratic leadership and rank-and-file members are planning to prevent the chamber from conducting routine business, including allowing committees to meet for extended hearings when the Senate is in session. They spoke on condition of anonymity to reveal a closed-door conversation.

A bipartisan group of governors are criticizing the Republican health care bill now being crafted in Congress, arguing the legislation fails to protect the vulnerable and shifts the financial burden of coverage to the states.

Republicans have been meeting in private to negotiate the bill's details - which would likely mean millions of people losing their health coverage.

Two other congressional GOP officials confirmed that the general descriptions of Trump's words were accurate.

Differences would have to be resolved before the Legislature enacts and Justice signs either tax or budget bills.

Since everything is being done in secret, we have to depend upon the grapevine which says there will be drastic cuts, leaving millions without health-care coverage.

It's crunch time for health care in the Senate, where GOP leaders could present a bill that aims to repeal and replace Obamacare, NBC News reported.

By the way, we now know what President Donald Trump really thinks of the House bill. Tim Scott (R-S.C.). "And Medicaid has paid a crucial role in the services he receives in the community, at school and in his medical care".

Then, he made headlines by wheeling a photocopier across the Capitol to try to find a copy of the House bill. He alluded to Schumer's comments earlier this year in which he said Democrats will work with Republicans on repairing Obamacare as long as Republicans back off of the "repeal" part of it.

Just last weekend, Trump used his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., to hold a fundraising event for MacArthur that netted $800,000.

Nor can the the American Heart Association, the American Lung Association, the American Diabetes Association, or eleven other patients groups who requested a meeting with McConnell's office next week, offering wide-ranging availability.

House and Senate negotiators were trying Friday to reconcile their versions of that bill. I don't know where he stands on it. "ObamaCare is dead - the Republicans will do much better!"
