Senate Health Care Bill Draws Criticism From Conservative Republican Lawmakers

13 ways the Senate GOP health-care plan could impact Michigan

That expansion program would begin being phased out in 2021, and fully repealed three years later. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who each have expressed serious reservations with the bill for very different reasons, proclaimed during exclusive interviews on Sunday's "Meet The Press" that rushing a vote before the July 4th recess would be unwise. "A tax cut the Republicans insist on of about $700 billion for the wealthiest people in America and pharmaceutical companies".

He urged Republicans to work with Democrats by "stop sabotaging Obamacare" and giving up the effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

As Republicans scrambled Sunday to wrangle enough votes to pass health care reform legislation, United States president Donald Trump - in an unusual bid to reach out to his political opponents - urged Democrats to support bill. But she added: "We have to fight and we must win". A White House official said the Trump has pushed his team to stay involved and plans to flex his negotiating muscle, the official said. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Dean Heller (R-Nev.). It is believed the president wants to see a more generous bill pass through the Senate. It did not sound like a lengthier phase-out of the Medicaid expansion would satisfy Heller the way it might satisfy, say, Ohio Sen. Unfortunately, this bill that was written pretty much in secret, and is now trying to be rushed through the process, doesn't do any of that.

States with a large population receiving Medicare, health insurance for seniors, or Medicaid, government-subsidised insurance for low-income or disabled people, may be negatively affected by the bill in its current draft.

That's not sitting well with GOP Sen.

"It's going to be very hard to get me to a yes", Heller said at a press conference in Las Vegas.

Conservatives have said the measure does not go far enough to undo key provisions of Obama's health care plan, while moderates have raised concerns that the bill could increase the number of uninsured Americans due to proposed cuts to the Medicaid program.

Mr McConnell said Democrats chose not to help frame the bill.

Price said on CNN's "State of the Union" that Nevada Sen. The Republican-majority House passed a similar version of health care legislation last month.

"Right now, we've got premiums going through the roof, deductibles are sky-rocketing".

Some Democrats are holding events this weekend to stand up against the bill.
