New blow to GOP health bill: Nevada GOP Sen. Heller opposes

Sandy Vega | 26 June, 2017, 04:42

No Democrat is supporting the plan which means Republicans can only afford to lose two Republican votes in the Senate or else the bill will fail. He is one of four GOP senators to say they are opposed it but are open to negotiations, which could put the measure in immediate jeopardy.

If three Republicans defect, the party can not reach the majority vote it needs to pass the measure.

The Nevada senator joins four other Republicans in expressing opposition to the draft bill as it is now written.

Republican Senator Rand Paul (Kentucky) said, "It keeps the preexisting condition, keeps the regulations, and then subsidizes the death spiral".

"In this form, I will not support it", Heller said at a news conference with Republican Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.

To the editor - I am writing to express my concern over the actions of Congress on health reform.

Trump Describes His Health Care Bill As "Mean"
Moderates Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski were on the list as well as conservatives Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. The next congressional recess is on July 4, and the hope is the bill could be signed into law before then.


Johnson, one of five GOP senators who has announced opposition to the bill as written, said there's not "enough time" to review and improve it before a planned vote Thursday - just one week after the secretly drafted bill was made public. The U.S. Senate worked behind closed doors to draft legislation that could change the future of health care in America.

It's no secret that the Affordable Care Act has flaws, but Sen.

The House approved its version of the bill last month.

"If we get to impasse, if we go to a bill that is more repeal and less big government programs, yes I'll consider partial repeal", Paul said on ABC. Senate Republican leaders may rely on the deal-making former businessman to lean on conservative senators who are balking at the bill.

"I can not imagine that these very fine Republican Senators would allow the American people to suffer a broken ObamaCare any longer!" he wrote. The Senate bill also calls for a tighter cap on federal spending in Medicaid overall than the House bill did.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said that under the House bill, 23 million fewer people would have coverage by 2026.
