Republican Senator Is on a Mission to Rescue the Health Care Law

The White House Isn't Giving Up on Obamacare Repeal

Republicans run the risk of the same thing occurring with health care policy if they decide to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act without a replacement in place.

Eight in 10 voters disapproved of the way President Donald Trump and Republicans handled the health care issue, with just 15 percent expressing approval; and 64 percent disapproved of the GOP proposals to repeal and replace the current law with just 25 percent supporting them.

"We are confident right now that we will be able to earn (Democrats') support with our tax reform agenda", said Marc Short, the White House director of legislative affairs.

Gardner, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said he remains "very confident" about the GOP's chances because Democrats are defending so many seats in conservative-leaning states. Roy Blunt of Missouri, another member of the GOP leadership.

"People may turn on their TVs, and they think that all that we do here in this bubble is spend our time focusing on one thing at one time, or you know, bickering with each other about one thing", Ryan said.

Republican senators looked exhausted as they recited the day's talking points on the latest presidential foul ball.

In addition to the White House, the political network associated with the billionaire brothers Charles Koch and David Koch has is trying to prod the vulnerable Democrats to join the Republicans.

After seven months of nearly no legislative accomplishments, the GOP is turning to its next agenda item - an overhaul of the nation's tax code.

Democrats are capitalizing on the public's distaste for the Republican plans. President Trump staged a photo-op celebration in the Rose Garden, even as Senate Republicans declared the zombie to be DOA at their doorstep.The senators wanted to pass their own version even before the president, in one of his weird flip-flops, described the House bill as too "mean."But, alas, Senate Republicans came up with their own clunker of a bill that the CBO estimated would grow the uninsured by 22 million and cut Medicaid by $772 billion".

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Wednesday that the Senate was working to complete a bill on FDA user fees and confirm additional nominees. The Senate then took up a third option, a limited Obamacare repeal bill that would have only repealed the Obamacare insurance mandates and the medical device tax, but it failed by a vote of 49-51, with Senator McCain joining Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and all 48 Democrats to defeat the bill. John McCain, R-Ariz. "We're six months into this Congress, [and] we failed on health care". They have iffy prospects at best.

Among its more notable successes this year, and against Mr. Trump's objections, Congress passed a tough Russian Federation sanctions bill with a veto-proof majority, which the president begrudgingly signed this week. But rather than resuming its health care debate, the Senate on Monday began considering a judicial nomination. It would also limit Obama's requirement that employers offer coverage to workers to companies with at least 500 workers, not just 50. Meanwhile, 26% said they were more likely to vote for him because of the vote, and 20% said it made no difference.

Obama's statute requires that insurers reduce those costs for low-earning customers.

In the letter that Senate Democrats send to Republican leaders and President Trump on Tuesday, Democrats urged them not to use rules to protect the bill from a filibuster. "And if he doesn't we'll have to figure out from a congressional standpoint what we do". Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., has urged Trump to approve the CSRs for August and September, and has said that once Congress returns from recess, the committee will work on a bill guaranteeing insurance funds for all of 2018, including CSR payments. That, it seems to me, was above all what happened in 2016: The "neutral" media, led by CNN, chose to turn the 2016 nomination fight into "The Donald Trump Show" and failed to follow cues from Republican Party actors to portray the reality-show star as unacceptable. Mnuchin this week said Trump would like to sign a bill by Thanksgiving.
