Collins: GOP bill would affect 'most vulnerable'

Collins: GOP bill would affect 'most vulnerable'

"As the U.S. Senate considers the Better Care Reconciliation Act, we are writing to urge you to strike the "Consumer Freedom Option" from the bill", the letter reads.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that the bill would cut Medicaid by almost $800 billion by 2026, and would cut Medicaid 35 percent come 2036. Doctors from the Mayo Clinic said the senator's surgery was successful and he is resting comfortably at his home in Arizona.

Can Sen. Mitch McConnell round up enough Republican votes to force the destruction of Medicaid and other punishing measures on working people, while preserving huge tax cuts for the rich?

"There are few people tougher than my friend John McCain, and I know he'll be back with us soon", Mr. McConnell said in a statement Saturday.

Collins is one of two Republican senators who have already said that they would not even vote to open debate on the latest version of the bill released on Thursday, meaning one more defection from the Republican ranks could kill it. Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Susan Collins (R-ME) now oppose the BCRA; the bill would likely fail in Sen. Tissue pathology reports would be available within the next several days.

Two Republicans, conservative Sen.

Beyond repealing these key provisions of the ACA, the bill would also cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which could jeopardize the ability of clinics to deliver preventive health services, including HIV testing and transition-related care. With a 52-seat majority and Democrats unanimously lined up against the legislation, Republicans can not afford another defection.

"President Trump and I believe the Senate health-care bill strengthens and secures Medicaid for the neediest in our society", Pence said in a speech to governors Friday. The American Health Care Act was the Republican effort in the House, which passed in early May.

"We are going to dump billions of dollars into the insurance companies and say, 'please charge less, ' and try to counteract the death spiral, but the Republican plan doesn't fix the death spiral of Obamacare, it simply subsidizes it", Paul told Wallace.

President Obama "made a serious mistake when he pushed through the Affordable Care Act without a single Republican vote", she said.

"The president has been monitoring what's going on with health care, and he and his staff have been involved with what's going on in the Senate", she said.

"While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act", McConnell, R-Ky., said on Saturday. McConnell did not disclose when the vote could occur in the statement in which he and his wife Elaine Chao wished McCain a "speedy recovery".

"This bill would make sweeping and deep cuts to the Medicaid program, which has been a safety net program on the books for more than 50 years, ensuring that some of our most vulnerable citizens or disabled children or low-income seniors receive the health care that they need", Collins, R-Maine, told ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl on "This Week" Sunday.
