Not 'that far off' from passing health overhaul

"Democrats in Congress created this calamity and now, if we don't act, millions more Americans will be hurt by Obamacare's deepening death spiral", President Trump said. Centrist Republicans and medical organizations said the bill would leave millions of Americans without health care or with fewer benefits and would cut Medicaid by $800 billion.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Nevada Republican Dean Heller became the fifth GOP senator to declare his opposition to the party's banner legislation to scuttle much of Barack Obama's health care overhaul on Friday, more than enough to sink the measure and deliver a stinging rebuke to President Donald Trump unless some of them can be brought aboard.

Menendez held a news conference at Newark Community Health Centers where 53 percent of patients are on Medicaid.

"It looks to us like the Obamacare subsidies will remain in place and. we think that the spending actually may exceed Obamacare spending in the next two years". I have no idea what's going to happen. John Cornyn of Texas said there is "a sense of urgency" to push forward but acknowledged the outcome is "going to be close". The conservative coalition of Lee, Cruz, Johnson, and Paul swiftly issued a statement criticizing the bill, which they argue doesn't go far enough in dismantling the Affordable Care Act. But that so-called "individual mandate" is one of the least popular provisions of the law. The graphic purported to show the projected negative impact of proposed Medicaid cuts on young children. States would not be allowed to obtain waivers for Obamacare rule banning insurers from charging those with pre-existing conditions higher premiums.

Obamacare: Requires insurance companies to cover birth control with no co-pay and requires insurance plans and employers that provide insurance to cover some contraception costs.

The Republican-led Senate is set to vote on the Better Care Restoration Act before the 4th of July congressional recess. That's what I want. It is expected to run the same calculations on number of insured and cost of premiums for the Senate draft bill early next week. And just - can you give us just a couple of ways in which it differs from the House bill?

Even Mr Obama wrote: I was careful to say again and again that while the Affordable Care Act represented a significant step forward for America, it was not flawless, nor could it be the end of our efforts.

"It should scare every American that the Senate plans to vote on this bill without understanding the true ramifications".

The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, which represents health insurers covering more than 100 million people in the US, said it will continue to push for a replacement for Obamacare's coverage requirement as well. Controversial, because it defunds Planned Parenthood for a year and could also gut programs to treat opioid addiction - a cause championed by Gov. Chris Christie.

"It's going to be very hard to get me to a yes", Heller said.

"We don't see them as cuts". "He may or may not succeed, he probably doesn't have the votes right now, but even if he doesn't have the votes right now, he can make deals to get there".

Trump shot back in the interview, saying he has accomplished more on health care in five months than Obama or Bill Clinton did at this point in their presidencies. Expressing frustration, he complained about "the level of hostility" in government and wondered why both parties can't work together on the Senate bill as GOP critics expressed doubt over a successful vote this week.
