GOP Ties Democrats to 'Socialism' Over Single-Payer Health Care Bill

Republican Sen. Susan Collins told CNN on Wednesday she was "disappointed" that a bipartisan healthcare effort fell apart, while the Republican-only Graham-Cassidy bill gained momentum instead.

Amidst growing tensions and in a bid to defend his support for the Graham-Cassidy Bill which is a new effort at repealing the ObamaCare health policy, President Trump is validating the essence of the bill and equally testifying to the good intentions of Senator Bill Cassidy at promoting the bill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell needs 50 of the chamber's 52 Republicans to vote for a bill that aims to repeal most of the Affordable Care Act and drastically reshape the Medicaid system.

"I told the young lady that answered the telephone that I was a terminal cancer patient who relied on Medicaid, and if this bill passes I would lose what little access I had to health care and it would hasten my death", Gregory told the reporters. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to round up 50 votes to pass the legislation before September 30, when special rules preventing a Democratic filibuster will expire.

"He made a total about-face, which means he doesn't understand his own bill or he lied to me". Yes, for seven long years Republican office holders and Republican office seekers have been promising the American people that if only THEY had the power, they would repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with something MUCH better! The week of that vote McCain also gave a sharp speech condemning the effort to push the bill through the Senate without committee hearings and regular procedures.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., meanwhile, called the Cassidy-Graham bill "a stinkaroo" during a press conference Wednesday, according to the Washington Examiner.

KODJAK: Well, this one most people will say is the most radical bill in that it makes the most drastic changes.

The healthcare debate has re-opened and health care advocacy group Save My Care is back to try and end it for the last time. Even those who are still covered will see a 20% increase in premiums in the first year.

The problem, critics say, is the block grants would provide far less funding than now projected.

The independent study by the consulting firm Avalere Health found the Graham-Cassidy bill would lead to an overall cut in IN of $7 billion between 2020 and 2027.

One is what happens to the 400,000 Arizonans added to the state's Medicaid rolls under Obamacare.

When looked at on a per person basis, however, Oregon, Vermont and MA would see the greatest funding losses at more than $2,000 in 2026, the New York Times' analysis of the CBPP estimates found.

"If you're them, it's alarming they can only get half of America to support the issue with their messaging", he said about Democrats, noting the poll question did not include the system's cost.

Barro has dubbed the bill's new funding formula "the Alaska Purchase". His administration has used Medicaid money for treatment. NY and MA followed with respective $19 billion and $5 billion estimated funding losses.
