Former Gov. Heineman says Sen. Sasse man to lead health care reform

Former Gov. Heineman says Sen. Sasse man to lead health care reform”

On "Fox and Friends" Friday, Republican Sen. "It doesn't have the votes, and it's a waste of valuable time to discuss it". But he reiterated that Trump believes Republicans should consider an option of immediately repealing the ACA and replacing it later, if senators can not reach agreement.

The trouble is that Senate leaders have attracted fire from both sides. "You can't leave the American people out like this". It could also roil insurance markets by prompting insurers to flee or boost premiums because of worries over whether, when and how Congress would replace the statute.

Republican leaders are aware of the risks that the president and some of the party's lawmakers floated by suggesting not to replace the health care legislation at the same time as its repealed. McConnell has balked at this suggestion, but on Sunday Sasse and other key Republicans and the Trump administration's chief lobbyist on Capitol Hill renewed support for the idea as a last-ditch effort. In short, no matter the political damage, Republicans will probably have to wait for Obamacare to fully implode before they will agree on some kind of replacement.

Trump says he's sending 'federal help' to stem Chicago violence
Never mind that the Chicago Police Department has earned a reputation as one of the most brutal and racist in the United States. Our federal partners from the US attorney's office, the ATF, the FBI need to be much more invested in this overall strategy.

"It's distressing to see so many Republicans who've lied about their commitment to repeal". They all were for repealing ObamaCare. Mimicking a southern accent, the New Jersey-born Cuccinelli said, "Root and branch, root and branch", repeating an expression McConnell once used about how thoroughly he wanted to repeal the Obama law. Support for the overhaul is in the single digits among Democrats, but several polls show independents and Republicans also remarkably uneasy, with total support among all respondents languishing somewhere between about 12 and 27 percent.

The early-morning tweet was Trump's first public statement since taking office in favor of bringing down the health care law with no replacement system in place. They hope to win over conservatives by eliminating numerous Affordable Care Act's insurance mandates and allowing higher tax deductions through expanded health-savings accounts. He said he was "very confident" that leaders would address the issue in the updated bill. Conservative Senator Rand Paul also backed the idea.

Both proposals were encountering internal Republican opposition, and it was uncertain either would survive.

"It's not easy making American great again, is it", McConnell rhetorically asked before comparing the Senate's negotiations to a Rubik's Cube, saying that he's "trying to figure out how to twist the dials to get to 50 to replace this with something better".

McConnell had hoped to close the deal on Friday by offering a raft of sweeteners to conservatives and moderates alike, yet congressional Republicans departed for the week-long holiday no closer to a final agreement.

McConnell planned to put the bill up for a vote on the floor last week, but yanked it last minute after it became clear too many Republicans abandoned ship. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., who with Ohio GOP Sen. Keeping that increase would save $172 billion over 10 years, and moderates want to use that money to make coverage more affordable for poorer consumers.
