Democrats to study every option to halt Obamacare repeal bill

Sen. Bill Cassidy speaks during a town hall meeting

Health Reform: After nine fruitless months, Republicans have finally come up with an ObamaCare replacement plan that is simple and appealing, and that should easily pass the Senate. McConnell plans to take the temperature of his leadership team and his entire conference over the next few days. The budget reconciliation tool Republicans are using to prevent a filibuster from Democrats expires at the end of the month.

Cassidy has sorta, kinda, maybe won over Sen.

McCain has said he supports the bill in theory but wants to assess its impact on Arizona.

"Why did Obamacare fail?"

Bill sponsors say it is time to match wits with Democrats, who've defended Obamacare at every turn. "That's not the way to do it". "As he has said before, Sen".

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has scheduled a hearing for September 26 about health-care block grants.

The other complaint from liberal groups is that Cassidy-Graham won't spend as much on health care as ObamaCare would.

"I can't support a bill that keeps 90% of Obamacare in place".

On "This Week" George Stephanopoulous asked Jonathan Karl, "We all assumed repeal and replace was dead".

WASHINGTON - Senate Republicans are revving up a final push to scuttle President Barack Obama's health care law. "Willing to go over it with you".

Collins, Murkowski and McCain voted against the last measure Republicans tried pushing through the Senate in July, which failed 51-49. Pressure will intensify on familiar moderates Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, both Republicans.

GCHJ also eliminates the inequity of three states receiving 37 percent of Obamacare funds and brings all states to funding parity by 2026.

Any provision that prevents a health insurance issuer offering a coverage plan in the individual or small group market from requiring an individual to pay a premium or contribution (as a condition of enrollment or continued enrollment under the plan) which is greater than such premium or contribution for a similarly situated individual enrolled in the plan on the basis of any health status-related factor in relation to the individual or to an individual enrolled under the plan as a dependent of the individual. This, too, has been a point of contention among some moderate Republicans. Graham and Cassidy would move us.

But if it can get through the Senate, it may have a chance in the House of Representatives, also run by Republicans. The GOP can only afford to lose two votes, and Sen.

You wouldn't exactly pick up on all these obstacles from talking to Cassidy. It replaces all of these provisions with a block grant that is smaller than the total amount of the money it takes away. That's one reason Kentucky Republican Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), and Sen. Senator John Cornyn, the No. 2 Republican leader, said last week that he'll gauge support for the bill, and the topic is expected to be discussed again privately by Senate Republicans on Tuesday. "People are coming out and saying they are for it, either publicly or privately".
