In Alabama, a Trump miscalculation in Senate primary

Anthem will not sell individual Obamacare plans in Maine next year

Although Senators Graham and Cassidy said they would press ahead with the legislation, there were doubts whether the party leadership in the Senate would bring it to vote, given the near-certain defeat of the measure.

According to Manning, Paul and Cruz are not to blame for the current situation - in which a weak repeal bill sponsored by liberal "Republican" Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana is hanging on for dear life ahead of a key September 30 procedural deadline.

"I'm hopeful now that the Senate effort has not come to fruition, we can try to make incremental fixes and leave the major structural changes to another day, " said Republican Rep. John Faso of Kinderhook.

Monday night, the Republicans modified Graham-Cassidy to make it more palatable for Murkowski, Cruz and Lee to vote in favor but that did not satisfy the senators who announced they were still opposed. Susan Collins (R-ME) announced Monday that she will vote against the latest ACA-repeal bill, making her the third Republican to definitively oppose the bill. They are racing against the clock; after September 30, the chamber's rules change and lawmakers won't be able to pass a new bill with just 50 votes. Collins stated that she could not support the health care proposal until it received a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score, which it would not have before the reconciliation deadline. "We've got some time this year to deal with it and I think we have to".

Because Republicans now have the majority in the White House, the Senate and the House, the responsibility of providing a new, viable health care system for the millions of inadequately insured and uninsured Americans falls squarely on their shoulders.

The president has repeatedly scolded Republicans, including McCain, who for years promised to repeal Obamacare but have not yet delivered.

"If we had a tax code that maximized the right kind of incentives and was more competitive we would have stronger economic growth", Toomey said.

"The Cassidy-Graham bill would have been a health care disaster, and the American people saw it", Schumer said.

The House passed an Obamacare repeal bill in May, but the Senate has now failed three times.

The main thrust of the Graham-Cassidy bill was to give money to the states, so that each would decide what health care model their constituents wanted to go with. Collins says she spoke with Vice President Pence and President Trump, but it wasn't enough to change her mind.

"We're coming back to this after taxes", Mr.

"Physicians, patient advocates, insurers, and hospitals agree that both versions of this legislation would lead to higher premiums and reduced coverage for tens of millions of Americans". Representative Richard Neal (D-MA) said the president made it clear "he was going to work with Democrats on a plan" if his healthcare interests weren't met, according to CNN. "If we have not produced something on this", he said, Republican voters would punish lawmakers "at the ballot box".
