Early reviews negative on Senate Republicans' health care bill

  • As Affordable Care Act repeal teeters, prospects for bipartisanship build

Capitol Hill Police have forcibly removed protesters in wheelchairs from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office on the same day Republicans released their latest healthcare plan. That compares to an average of just $115,000 bestowed upon members not participating in the closed-door negotiations. Disabled patients who rely on Medicaid for their essential and life-saving care hoped that they might find some compassion and mercy from the Republicans intent on gutting their health care.

If three Republican Senators oppose this bill today, it will be one of the fastest crash and burns in legislative history. Phillip Corona fears that changes to the program "would possibly mean putting him in a nursing home". Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Susan Collins (R-ME) and many more GOP senators.

Moments after the 142-page discussion draft was unveiled, McConnell spoke on the Senate floor, renewing his criticism of the seven-year-old law.

"I think the bottom line is: I want them to pass the bill, so we can all get on with keeping our promise", Ryan told reporters, while also adding that he does not want to get in the Senate's way of doing business. "Senators who support this bill will be voting to take away health insurance from the elderly, the disabled, and children", said a June 22 statement from the Rev. David Beckmann, a Lutheran minister who is president of Bread for the World, a Christian anti-hunger lobby. And it would end the tax penalty Obama's statute imposes on people who don't buy insurance - in effect, ending the so-called individual mandate. In the Senate, McConnell may well try to handle more adeptly-or he might not-and the future of the American healthcare system hangs in the balance why McConnell plays his most important game yet.

It faces uniform Democratic opposition. The Republican-led effort was largely seen as negatively impacting some of the most vulnerable Americans. The measure represents his attempt to satisfy GOP moderates and conservatives who've complained about the measure. But it remains unclear whether he will have enough votes.
