Senate Republicans push last-gasp Obamacare repeal amid hurdles

Bill Cassidy (R-La.).

The bill Schumer refers to is a proposal by Sens.

So assuming Republicans, desperate to fulfill a campaign promise, can rally behind the effort, they will be sending legislation to the president's desk to dramatically reshape the American health care system without much - if any - time for debate or chance to offer amendments. "We are giving the power over health care to the states, not DC".

"Graham/Cassidy keeps Obamacare and tells the states to run it", Paul tweeted, referencing the bill's two lead sponsors. The CBPP report showed that Graham-Cassidy would reduce federal funding for health coverage in both ME and Alaska and cut Medicaid overall.

Senate leadership called on the Congressional Budget Office to rush scoring on legislation - released by Sens.

After that embarrassing setback, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he'd not revisit the issue unless he was assured he had the votes he needed to succeed.

Congressional rules could play a large role in whether the Graham-Cassidy bill passes.

And Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who cast the deciding vote that killed the repeal effort in July, expressed misgivings that the Senate would try again to pass a bill that had not been examined by committees with expertise - and with no Democratic support. Karl responded, "They need 50 votes, and you're not going to have Rand Paul, he's going to be against anything, you're not going to have Susan Collins, so it may all come down to one senator, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska".

Because the Graham-Cassidy plan has no Democratic support, Republicans have only until September 30 to push it through the Senate before rules expire that allow it to be passed with 50 senators plus Vice President Mike Pence's tiebreaking vote.

Meanwhile, the Columbus Dispatch reports that a bipartisan measure, similar to one recently proposed by Governor John Kaisch of OH and seven other governors, may be unveiled next week by Republican Senator Lamar Alexander and Democratic Senator Patty Murray. Dean Heller (R-NV) over his sponsorship of a new Obamacare repeal bill that would make deep cuts to Medicaid. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who stood up against July's repeal effort. "As he has said before, Sen".

Senate Republican leaders seem increasingly focused on reviving their effort to undo the Affordable Care Act before the end of the month, asking Congress's nonpartisan budget analysts to fast-track consideration of a plan that would devolve federal health-care spending to the states.

All who care about the expansion of health care coverage need to focus their energies on defeating this latest attack on Obamacare. The liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities said Friday the bill would "significantly" cut federal funding for health coverage over the next decade.
