Trump Urges Republican Senators Forward on Healthcare During White House Meeting

It hasn't been easy, as adjustments to placate conservatives, who want the legislation to be more stringent, only push away moderates who think its current limits - on Medicaid for example - are too strong. His spokesman, Conn Carroll, said Tuesday that Lee would not vote to commence debate on the bill "as it is now written".

GOP defections increased after Congress' budget referee said Monday the measure would leave 22 million more people uninsured by 2026 than Obama's 2010 statute.

House Republicans were able to pass their bill, thanks to an amendment by Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-3rd Dist.) that attracted support from the most conservative members of their conference.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who led the secret drafting of the measure and unveiled it last week, said lawmakers would continue negotiating, in a bid to bridge the "differences" that have split Republicans over the legislation.

"I have so many fundamental problems with the bill that have been confirmed by the CBO report that it's hard for me to see how any tinkering is going to satisfy my fundamental and deep concerns about the impact of the bill", she told reporters at the Capitol.

The Congressional Budget Office projected that 22 million more Americans would be without health insurance under the bill, Better Care Reconciliation Act, than the current baseline. An aide to the senator said Rubio's staff invited staff from the offices of Scott - as well as the Florida speaker and Senate president - to Washington to be "embedded" in Rubio's office for the week and work with Rubio's team to analyze how the bill will affect Florida. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Sen. Both the House and the Senate have different health care bills. Paul had a noon meeting at the White House scheduled on Tuesday, at which Trump had been expected to appeal for his support.

Conservative Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said he could not support the proposal as it now stands. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., Sen.

Lee, another second-term Republican, reiterated his longstanding criticism that the Senate bill included "hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts for the affluent, bailouts for insurance companies, and subsidies for lower-income Americans".

The number of uninsured was just one million less than the House's CBO figure. No less than the president of the United States reportedly called the House version of the bill "mean" in a closed-door meeting with Republicans ― a fact he (potentially inadvertently) confirmed while commenting on former president Barack Obama also calling it mean.

Party leaders had hoped to bring the bill to the Senate floor for a vote this week, ahead of the July 4 recess. Among her concerns: the need for more money to combat the nation's opioid epidemic and the proposed Medicaid reductions, The New York Times reported.

Because West Virginia made a decision to expand coverage through Medicaid under former President Barack Obama's health care law, many people in the state have come to rely on the health coverage and access to substance abuse treatment it provides, even as others with private insurance face skyrocketing premiums and deductibles, she said. The so-called lockout provision would generally require insurers to impose a six-month waiting period before coverage can start for people who enroll in individual health plans who have let their previous insurance lapse for more than 63 days.

Nancy Pelosi (D), California, said on CBS This Morning, "We do know that many more people, millions, hundreds of thousands of people, will die if this bill passes". It said that similar to the House bill, average premiums around the country would be higher over the next two years - including about 20 percent higher in 2018 than under Obama's statute - but lower beginning in 2020.
