The House's health care bill is 'mean,' Trump reportedly tells senators

  • Senate Republicans Are Using A Special Rule To Vote On Health Care

"That may be adding additional money into it", he said, without offering details on how much money might be needed or how it might be used. "We're not going to have hearings on a bill that impacts one-sixth of our economy".

But Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), a key figure in the Senate's health care debate, said he wasn't as confident in the process. If that ends up being the case, it's possible that the bill may become something that both the conservatives and their more moderate antagonists can oppose. Moderate GOP senators have been pushing to ease those efforts.

But once the House passed its legislation in early May and the Senate began drafting its own bill in earnest, "it's been radio silence". "We've really been doing this for eight weeks, if you think about it". His legislative affairs team has been closely involved, but the President himself has been removed - by design, multiple aides on Capitol Hill said. These states will not feel compelled to " come up with extra funding to keep their expansions going when they know that the federal funding cuts", said Aron-Din, thus imploding the Medicaid expansion.

Despite his swipe at partisanship, Trump encouraged the GOP senators to continue to fix the House bill, which the Congressional Budget Office estimates would leave 23 million more Americans uninsured by 2026 than if Obamacare were to stay intact. But Republicans can only afford to lose support for the bill from just two of their 52 senators for that legislation to pass.

The prohibition apparently came from the Senate Rules Committee, run by the Republican caucus.

"I think he may have advanced the ball with some of my colleagues", Sen.

"The Senate is, as we speak, working tirelessly to improve this legislation and create an orderly framework to transition our healthcare economy away from the regulations and mandates and taxes of Obamacare to a patient-centered healthcare system built on personal responsibility, free-market competition, and state-based reform", Pence said in his remarks.

News on Tuesday that on-camera interviews might be significantly curtailed within the Capitol is an on-the-nose manifestation of something that had otherwise not attracted a lot of attention: The Republican effort to replace Obamacare was being put together nearly entirely outside of the public's ability to see what was happening.

President Donald Trump meeting with Senate Republicans to discuss the health care bill on Tuesday.

Many Republican senators who attended the meeting dodged questions afterward. Lamar Alexander, Colorado Sen.

CMS administrator Seema Verma has said she wants to allow states to experiment with their Medicaid programs and make it easier for them to get waivers.

President Trump speaks at the White House after Obamacare replacement passes the House on May 4, 2017. Nothing, therefore, would get done and Obamacare would go on and on.

Trump stepped up pressure for the repeal with a tweet Tuesday morning declaring that the Affordable Care Act, nicknamed Obamacare, "is in a death spiral".
