What's Next on Health Care Draft in Congress

"This bill will have devastating consequences for hard working families, the elderly and the sick", Ryan said.

Trump has irked some Republicans by arguing the Senate bill needs more funding and "heart", suggesting the House bill was not compassionate enough to people who rely on health care.

The plan will eliminate the individual mandate which forces people to buy health insurance or pay a penalty. Ducey has been pressuring the senators for more flexibility on Medicaid but hasn't said how he might avoid dropping those people from coverage. "This bill affects one sixth of our economy, and if Republicans are successful, TrumpCare will cause hundreds of thousands of people in New Mexico and millions of Americans in every corner of our state and nation to lose access to health care, prescription drugs, drug addiction counseling, and other life-saving services".

Asked what would need to be included to get him on board, Paul said: "It has to look less like Obamacare light-it's got to look like what we promised".

McConnell is pushing toward a vote next week but Paul's stance throws that into question.

The protest got heated when Capitol Police physically removed protesters by dragging them by their limbs away from McConnell's door.

Some of the protesters are being escorted individually.

"The bill includes misleading "protections" for children by proposing to exempt them from certain Medicaid cuts", Stein said. Phillip Corona says he traveled from Wisconsin to make his voice heard.

Both of New Mexico's USA senators slammed the recently-released Republican health care bill, saying it would hurt New Mexicans by damaging coverage.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer spoke on the Senate floor Thursday moments after the GOP's 142-page discussion draft was posted online.

McCain said he's closely reviewing the draft legislation released Thursday and will be speaking with Republican Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and other Arizonans before making a decision.

"We live in the wealthiest country on Earth", he added in a second tweet. "We urge the Senate to go back to the drawing board and develop legislation that continues to provide coverage to all Americans who now have it", AHA President Richard Pollack said in a statement on Thursday. First of all, the House bill is nowhere close to moderate.

"The bill will encourage a lot more of those individuals to buy health insurance, ' Roy says".

Republicans in the Senate on Thursday unveiled their plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act - also known as Obamacare.

At the White House today, Trump expressed hope for quick action.

The Senate and House versions of the bill need to be reconciled.

The bill faces broad opposition from Democrats. But with some Republicans already saying they aren't ready to support the legislation, there is uncertainty over whether that is possible.

WASHINGTON-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released a draft version of the Senate's proposal to overhaul the health care system, legislation that had been drafted essentially in secret.
