Trump making calls to senators on healthcare bill

Trump making calls to senators on healthcare bill

Clinton is also not the only Democratic Party leader who has criticized the bill.

Call your senators and ask them to consider the impact of any new bill on the health of our people and our economy. That could result in millions of Americans losing health care coverage.

"Forget death panels. If Republicans pass this bill, they're the death party", Clinton tweeted. Democrats are expected to vote as a bloc against the bill, meaning it could be defeated with as few as three Republican votes. The trade-off is that a bill can only be passed through reconciliation if it meets certain stringent requirements, and it's now unclear whether the Republican bill does so.

So far, a majority of the Senate have expressed promises to vote "no" on the bill; according to statements made by senators, 55 senators oppose the bill, 17 support it and 28 are unclear.

Besides the five who announced outright opposition, several other GOP senators - conservatives and moderates - have declined to commit to the overhaul.

"Throughout the health care debate, I have made clear that I want to make sure the rug is not pulled out from under Nevada or the more than 200,000 Nevadans who received insurance for the first time under Medicaid expansion", Heller wrote in a statement released Thursday.

"That's not my opinion, but rather the conclusion of all objective analyses, from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which found that 23 million Americans would lose insurance, to America's doctors, nurses, and hospitals on the front lines of our health care system". "Obviously, this will not be the final bill, but I'm hopeful that we can resolve the remaining disagreements and deliver a consensus bill that is a vast improvement over Obamacare".

Scrambling to halt or at least slow the Senate's repeal effort, a range of Democratic and liberal groups leaders said Friday that they meant to intensify pressure on Republican lawmakers.

Separate reports released Friday by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a think tank in Washington, highlighted numerous same areas of concern in the Senate bill for states.

Liberal groups have already organized protests against the bill, and Sen.

Republicans view the law, formally known as the Affordable Care Act, as a costly government intrusion and say individual insurance markets created by it are collapsing. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who also is up for re-election next year, and Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.

The Senate Democratic campaign arm, which Van Hollen leads, plans to increase its spending this week on Internet ads focused on the health measure in Nevada and Arizona, as well as in Texas and Florida, which also have Senate races in 2018.
