GOP health bill short of needed votes, Trump says

GOP health bill short of needed votes, Trump says

Rand Paul, who voted in favor of Senate Republicans' last health care bill - so-called "skinny repeal" - has come out strongly against Graham-Cassidy, characterizing it as "ObamaCare Lite" and vowing to vote against it. John McCain a hero for his decision not to vote for Republicans' Obamacare repeal bill.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) has been trashing the Graham-Cassidy health care bill all over town.

Graham is McCain's best friend in the Senate, but McCain says he can't support the bill in good conscience. He said he believes Republicans and Democrats can do better working together.

McCain said he can not vote for the bill without knowing how it will affect premiums, how much it will cost, and how many people it would help or hurt. "I'm leaning against the bill", she said at an event in Maine Friday, according to the the Portland Press Herald.

The estimate, released Friday by the state Department of Healthcare Services, comes on the heels of increased focus on the Republican bill championed by Louisiana Sen. After the experience, Kimmel has used several of his monologues to talk about how Obamacare would help other parents in his situation more than the recent proposed repeal bills would. Some have criticized how the legislation handles Medicaid and its plan to replace Obamacare's insurance subsidies with block grants.

"All of these groups populated by doctors say this healthcare bill is bad", said Kimmel.

After McCain announced he wouldn't vote for the bill, Kimmel thanked McCain on Twitter.

An emotional TV advertisement featuring the mother of a grown woman with cerebral palsy is set to air urging Senate Republicans not to vote for the GOP health care bill. "Instead, the specter of September 30th budget reconciliation deadline has hung over this entire process", he said in a statement.

Here's what Trump's tweeted about Paul: "I think he may find a way to get there for the good of the Party!"

The bill, named after Republican Sens.

"Wouldn't it be ironic if he took John McCain's place?"

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., walks to the Senate chamber for a vote, at the Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017.

"Previous partial repeals he voted for left the "replace" fight for another day, enabling him to vote yes", Gor said. The CBO won't have enough time to score Graham-Cassidy. The effort to gain Murkowski's support is also viewed as uphill, given the repeated insistence of Alaska's governor, independent Bill Walker, that any "deal" to secure her support likely wouldn't assuage his concerns and opposition to the bill. After that, they will need 60 votes, considered a near impossibility.
