Senate Republicans have a very slim path to victory on Graham-Cassidy: If more than two Republicans vote no, the bill won't pass. However, it does not appear likely that they will get their wish before the bill comes up for a vote. Lindsey Graham of SC and Louisiana's Bill Cassidy.
Lawmakers are looking to secure an elusive 50th vote to move the measure forward. If McCain decides to vote "yes", that leaves the GOP one vote short. Essential types of care could be out of reach entirely for many.
"Why did Obamacare fail?"
Credit ratings agency Fitch Ratings said Friday that because Medicaid spending represents one-third of state budgets, the bill would pose big challenges for them, particularly those that took advantage of Obamacare's Medicaid expansion. "That's not the way to do it".
Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is proposing a $1 billion infrastructure bill crafted by Congressional Democrats that could create as many as 15 million jobs. "As he has said before, Sen".
The legislation goes by the names of its four sponsors ― Sen.
Republican Sen. Rand Paul met with primary care providers at a roundtable in Crestwood.
Now, Graham and Cassidy say they believe they have close to 50 votes for the plan, prompting GOP leaders to check if they can finally succeed. A huge majority of voters, nearly 2-1, consider it a good thing that previous attempts at repealing and replacing Obamacare failed.
"This does not look, smell or even sound like repeal", Paul said. "Willing to go over it with you".
McCain said Monday on MSNBC he would consider supporting the plan, but was waiting for input from Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, R. That would include Maine's Paul LePage, who probably doesn't have a lot of pull with Senator Susan Collins.
He may not like how the bill is funded through maintaining the current health law's taxes on the wealthy, which Republicans have routinely criticized.
But if it can get through the Senate, it may have a chance in the House of Representatives, also run by Republicans. But the new Cassidy-Graham bill, the latest Republican effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), will come with an extra dose of drama and intrigue.
The measure would end Obamacare's requirements that individuals obtain health insurance and most employers provide it to their workers, and give states broad flexibility to address the needs of people with pre-existing medical conditions.
The simple fact is that all the major elements of the ACA - prohibiting discrimination by insurers based on medical history, requiring that people buy insurance even if they're now healthy, premium subsidies and Medicaid expansion that make insurance affordable even for those with lower incomes - are there because they're necessary.
A version of a repeal bill rejected by the Senate in July failed in part because it would cost 22 million Americans their health insurance by 2026.
In reality, Graham-Cassidy is the opposite of moderate. "Bernie-Care is full-blown single-payer socialism". Bill Cassidy (R-La.).
You wouldn't exactly pick up on all these obstacles from talking to Cassidy. Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader, could call a vote at any time. Dean Heller (R-NV), and Sen. Ducey told reporters Thursday that he didn't know how it would affect Arizona.
