Rob Portman Hints That He'll Support Latest GOP Health Care Bill


"The bill contains provisions that would allow states to waive key consumer protections, as well as undermine safeguards for those with pre-existing medical conditions", the association said in a statement.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host teased on Twitter that he'd have some harsh words for the Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill now circulating in the Senate. "I will keep working with the President for real repeal".

Christie says he's been lobbied to support the proposal. "I believe that most Republicans like the idea of state-controlled health care, versus Washington, DC-controlled health care", Graham said Tuesday.

President Donald Trump is backing a new push by Senate Republicans to repeal Obamacare and attacked Republican Kentucky Sen. "Not only did he fail 'the Jimmy Kimmel test, ' he failed the Bill Cassidy test".

"We have seen some very, very hopeful sprouts of bipartisanship in the last month", Schumer said.


Given his past comments and voting history, Paul seems more opposed to the particular way Graham-Cassidy distributes the block grants and not the overall amount of Obamacare spending it retains or the mere principle of block-granting Obamacare's spending. Due to a ruling by the Senate parliamentarian, Senate Republicans have only until September 30 to use the procedure.

"I think the other side, why are they rushing this through? In fact, this bill is even worse than the one that thank god Republicans like Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski and John McCain torpedoed over the summer". "We take that money, we divide it up by states, we tell the states it's up to them to design their system". John McCain. Would he step back in line with fellow Republicans now that there was a bill co-written by Lindsey Graham of SC, his best friend in the Senate?

The Senate's longshot Obamacare repeal bill is starting to look possible.

"Legislation should receive consideration under regular order, including hearings in health committees and input from the appropriate health-related parties", added the governors' letter. "So, this is not a repeal bill, this is sort of, 'Hey, we'll take Obamacare, replace it with Obamacare, but we're going to let the states have a little more power in how we spend it'". Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson, of Florida, is a cosponsor.
