McConnell: Debate over nation's health care will continue

The Republican party is moving heaven and earth to overcome the talk show host's unselfish and well-informed one-man fight The Republican party is moving heaven and earth to overcome the talk show host's unselfish and well-informed one-man fight

The Maine senator voted against Sen. Republicans have until the end of the month to pass the bill with a simple majority vote in the Senate.

Maine Sen. Susan Collins, who announced her opposition Monday, joining three fellow GOP senators, essentially assured the proposal's defeat.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, a bill sponsor, publicly thanked McConnell.

Mark Dayton joined members of the "This Is Medicaid" Coalition to speak out about the latest version of the new health care reform bill. He added that any rational human being would vote against the bill. She had previously indicated she was likely to vote no but said she would withhold a final judgment until after the Congressional Budget Office released its analysis. It said that while it didn't have time to do its thorough analysis, it concluded that millions fewer people would have insurance under this plan.

"To any American who's got a problem with John McCain's vote, all I can tell you is that John McCain was willing to die for this country and he can vote any way he wants to, and it doesn't matter to me in terms of friendship", Graham said.

Paul objected to a key provision of the bill, under which Obamacare funding would be granted to states in blocs for them to decide how to spend, rather than be managed by the federal government.

The bill would also "open the door for states to weaken protections for people with pre-existing conditions, such as asthma, cancer, heart disease, arthritis and diabetes".

Graham and Sen. Ron Johnson, who both sit on the budget committee, have advocated for this idea.

Trump called into the "Rick & Bubba Show", a talk show based in Alabama, to discuss the state's Senate primary on Tuesday.

Multiple Browns players take a knee ahead of game against the Colts
The Colts played much better against the Arizona Cardinals this past Sunday, but they still couldn't walk away with a win at home. Brissett's second rushing touchdown of the game gave the Colts a 14-7 lead over the Browns with 10:06 to play in the first half.

Two Republican senators signalled strong opposition Sunday to their party's latest bid to overhaul Obamacare, dealing a potentially fatal blow to one President Donald Trump's top legislative goals.

Republicans hold 52 seats in the Senate. McCain's best friend Graham appeared offended. None of their concerns could be easily fixed by changing funding formulas.

Republicans have repeatedly failed at efforts to repeal Obamacare, despite campaigning against it for seven years.

Senator Ted Cruz already withheld his support and requested changes to the bill. The current state of health insurance, where premiums are skyrocketing, choices are limited, and small businesses are struggling, needs fixing.

Other Republicans are wavering, too. The bill introduced by Sens.

"It represents Republicans accepting a trillion dollars of Obamacare spending", Paul said.

However, McCain's refusal to support the initiative last week was enough to kill the draft by breaking the GOP's fragile majority in Senate.

Dayton says it will then fall to state leadership to choose which programs have to go. We didn't like what the Republicans were doing, so we made a decision to have a baby with congenital heart defects.
