Republicans Abandon Health Reform Bill

Republicans Abandon Health Reform Bill

The U.S. Senate will not hold a vote on the latest GOP health care plan, dubbed the Graham-Cassidy bill, after not having enough yes votes.

Graham himself was intent on putting the Bill to vote, regardless of the chances of its success.

Republicans had a September 30 deadline to pass legislation with just 50 votes and the help of a tie-breaking vote from Vice President Mike Pence, thanks to a legislative technique known as budget reconciliation. Collins joins Senators McCain and Rand Paul, who have both said they will oppose the legislation. Sen.

Collins announced her decision shortly after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said "millions" of Americans would lose coverage under the bill and projected it would impose $1 trillion in Medicaid cuts through 2026.

Trump said that he was "disappointed" in several senators, in an apparent reference to McCain, Paul and Collins.

With their narrow 52-48 majority in the Senate and solid Democratic opposition, three GOP "no" votes would doom the bill.

Rep. Thomas Massie, though, said Democrats packed multiple issues into the budget they used to help pass the Affordable Care Act originally, and said it could be done for repeal.

"We'll have time to explain our concept we will have a better process and we will take this show on the road", Graham said. It'll be much harder to pass anything after the deadline because 60 votes would be needed for approval starting in October. "We plan to move forward on our next priority which is reforming the American tax code in a significant way for the first time in 30 years".

In a phone interview with KTUU on Monday, Vice President Mike Pence said he was "still very hopeful that we can earn Senator Murkowski's support" when asked what the outcome for Alaska would be if Murkowski cast another pivotal "no" vote.

This latest attempt came on a bill from Sens.

This next attempt could be the Republican's passing its next budget resolution, which they originally meant to use to focus on tax reform.

"We've got citizens that need a fix now, " the governor said, a need that Ducey said transcends any concerns about time-consuming procedures. "We go and we do reform that's common sense, and we don't care about the politics". The next best opportunity for a potential ACA - informally called "Obamacare" - repeal could come in the 2019 fiscal year, beginning next October, Graham said. Even so, he had made it clear that he would not be supporting the Graham-Cassidy Bill. "If we have not produced something on this", he said, Republican voters would punish lawmakers "at the ballot box". Health care might be a political game to some Senators in DC, but it's a life-or-death issue to our constituents.

"[Trump] made that clear that if he didn't get what he wanted, he was going to work with Democrats on a plan", Democratic Rep. Richard Neal of MA said after the meeting.
