After weeks of secrecy, Senate to unveil healthcare bill

Craig Ferguson | 22 June, 2017, 09:03

Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and other GOP senators from states that expanded Medicaid were still battling to prolong the phase-out of that money to seven years. "So I think you're going to wind up with what you had in the House bill - about 20 percent of the public's going to think it's a good idea".

"Some version of secrecy has to happen".

"I think there is a whole lot of ambiguity, which gives everyone some concern that there isn't enough time to review", Meadows said. But he added: "Most of our real private meetings were the final tweaks, not the original bill". McConnell is heading a committee of 13 Republican senators that will work on the bill. Representative Eliot Engel of NY, the top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee said an identical House version could be introduced and can be voted for.

Senator Susan Collins, a moderate Republican from ME, said she wants to read an assessment by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) on its impact on cost and insurance coverage before making her decision. "We have to act, and we are".

Nearly half of voters in the poll disapprove of the healthcare bill the House passed in May.

Some Senate Republicans, including Bob Corker from Tennessee and Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch of Utah, are skeptical about a vote happening that soon.

Earlier, a Google search for specific jobs would yield independent sites offering various disorganized and duplicate results. In theory, that should help make Google a one-stop shop that allows a user to conduct broad searches from a single query.

Just which element of the bill was seen as a revenue-raiser was unclear as of Tuesday.

The legislation didn't become law until March 2010.

As for the House bill's measure to defund Planned Parenthood, which Collins opposes, she said she hinted that she would be comfortable with it if she had the opportunity to vote on an amendment to strip the measure.

"This massive piece of legislation that seeks to restructure one-sixth of our economy is being written behind closed doors, without input from anyone", McConnell said, "in an effort to jam it past not only the Senate but the American people". Chris Murphy (D-CT).

Brady, a Trump ally, brushed off accusations from Democrats that House Republicans were using the origination clause as an excuse to hold up the bill on behalf of the president. Closed-door discussions were also used to resolve differences with anti-abortion Democratic Rep. Bart Stupak of MI that threatened the bill's passage. Republicans have been sending pieces of the bill to the CBO, so it's possible the Senate could have a score early next week. The measure would peel away much of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul and leave government with a more limited role in providing coverage and helping people afford it. Last-minute negotiations among lawmakers and between Congress and the White House "are never in public", he said. Thousands of times. And candidate Donald Trump promised us plenty.

When a bill raising revenue is introduced first by a member of the Senate, it is known in the House as a "blue-slip" violation, which normally means the bill is going nowhere.
