    Real clear Politics ^ | July 21,2017 | By Anneke E. Green
    Getting rid of Obamacare was one of Donald Trump’s key campaign commitments. Several Republican senators said this week they would not vote to support various forms of dealing with the controversial law. Political commentators have construed the announcements as another indictment of the president’s leadership. Yet this interpretation ignores the fact that congressional Republicans have built their majorities on promises to repeal the Affordable Care Act. If they fail, it’s not Trump who will be blamed by voters. he come-hell-or-high-water stance by leadership tells Murkowski and Capito in particular that they will not be protected from the appearance of flip-flopping....

    Until now, I haven't been too concerned about the Republican Party's difficulties in passing a health care reform bill because delays have resulted in improvements to the proposed legislation. But enough is enough. No more games. It's time to quit the finger-pointing. Neither congressional leaders nor President Trump have done enough to whip votes and sell the bill. A major overhaul of Obamacare, whether a full repeal, or a repeal and replacement, is imperative for Trump and congressional Republicans. More than any other, Obamacare is the issue that has galvanized grass-roots conservatives since 2010, and the Republicans' failure to...

    Republican Sens. Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.) and Susan Collins (Maine) said on Tuesday that they will not support moving forward with the plan to repeal ObamaCare with a delayed replacement. "My position on this issue is driven by its impact on West Virginians. With that in mind, I cannot vote to repeal ObamaCare without a replacement plan that addresses my concerns and the needs of West Virginians," Capito said in a statement. Collins added to NBC that she is still a "no" on proceeding to the House-passed bill, which would be used as a vehicle for any Senate action. The...
  • McConnell defers consideration of Senate healthcare bill until return of John McCain

    The Senate will defer consideration of the GOP healthcare plan that would partially repeal and replace Obamacare until Sen. John McCain returns to work following a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement late Saturday. After wishing him a "speedy recovery," McConnell, R-Ky., added: "While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act." About two hours earlier McCain's office revealed that he would be spending a week in his home state of...

    WASHINGTON — Senate Republican leaders were poised on Thursday to unveil a fresh proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, revising their bill to help hold down insurance costs for consumers while keeping a pair of taxes on high-income people that they had planned to eliminate. With the revised bill, the majority leader, Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, is trying to keep alive his party’s seven-year quest to dismantle the health law that is a pillar of former President Barack Obama’s legacy.Republicans said the revised bill would provide roughly $70 billion in additional funds that states could use...

    Republicans are about to do something very stupid. Using bribery, threats and cajolery, they intend to pass a catastrophically unpopular bill on a party-line vote. GOP: Obamacare is unpopular, so let's pass a new health care bill that's even MORE unpopular. Normal Person: Why would you do that? GOP: No, you don't understand. Obamacare is totally imploding, so if we pass this bill now, all its problems will be blamed on us! Republicans would be better off doing nothing. They can survive the ridicule for running against Obamacare through four election cycles and then not repealing it. They cannot survive...

    RUSH: This is a fascinating poll result. It’s IBD, Investor’s Business Daily. Headline: “People Like The Senate Health Bill More Than They Realize — Just 33% of the public say they approve of the Senate plan to repeal and replace Obamacare and 62% oppose it, the latest IBD/TIPP Poll finds. However, many of the specific provisions in the Senate bill get majority support. … Unlike other polls, the IBD/TIPP Poll restricted its findings on the Republicans’ Obamacare replacement plans to the 77% who say they’ve been following the health care debate closely.” So this poll is not include people unfamiliar...

    Senate Republicans are considering dropping a tax break for the wealthy from their ObamaCare repeal bill as they seek to secure 50 votes for the legislation. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) on Thursday said the bill would be changed to increase the subsidies that help lower-income people afford health insurance. The most likely way for that to happen is by keeping a 3.8 percent tax on investment income for high earners, Corker said. “We will it appears, address the issue of ensuring lower-income citizens are in a position to buy plans that are actually provide them appropriate healthcare,” Corker said. To...

    Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview that he thinks the Senate healthcare bill “looks too much like Obamacare.” Senator Rand Paul joined Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT), Ron Johnson (R-WI), and Ted Cruz (R-TX) in opposition to the Senate bill. The coalition of conservative senators argue that the legislation does not do enough to repeal Obamacare. Senator Paul explained his opposition to the newly released Senate healthcare bill: I think the bill looks too much like Obamacare. It really doesn’t look like a repeal bill. It looks like we’re keeping Obamacare, it keeps probably 100 percent...

    A group of at least three Republican senators are planning to openly oppose the newly-released Republican health care bill, NBC's Chuck Todd reported Thursday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) released the text of the bill Thursday after more than a month of speculation. "For the past seven years, Obamacare has continued to hurt the people we represent," McConnell said on the Senate floor. "For the past seven years, Republicans have offered ideas for a better way forward. And soon, we will finally have the chance to turn the page on this failing law." But the host of "Meet...

    Dear Mr. Prebius: With republicans fighting each other and falling into the Chris Matthews trap and the talk of all of the efforts to broker the convention, we see failure. We have never sat one out, however, this may be the one as we view the establishment republicans as only a tiny step above establishment democrats. We don't trust either as neither keep their promises. If Trump has the most delegates, he should be the nominee. The time for the GOP playing games and thwarting the will of the people is over. You sent me a 2016 congressional district census...
