CBO delays analysis of latest health care bill

Proposed dramatic Medicaid cuts threaten important Minnesota values

Proposed dramatic Medicaid cuts threaten important Minnesota values

A revised draft of the Senate's Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 (BCRA) was released Thursday, and new spending and coverage estimates from the Congressional Budget Office are expected to be released Monday.

I ask you to consider the irony of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delaying a vote on the Senate bill to repeal Obamacare until Senator John McCain recovers from surgery to remove a blood clot above his eye.

The No. 2 Republican in the Senate says he fully expects a vote on the GOP health bill once Sen.

Even before the development on Saturday night, the fate of health care legislation seemed deeply uncertain in the Senate.

With a slim 52-48 majority, McConnell, who also represents Kentucky, can not afford to lose more than two votes on the bill.

McConnell tweeted that the Senate will work on other legislative issues and nominations next week and "will defer consideration of the Better Care Act" while McCain is recovering.

The plan, republican of partial abrogation of law democratic party of 2010 is only a wire to the Senate, where two republicans have already announced that they will vote no next week when the text will be submitted to a vote. Susan Collins of Maine. In a Senate divided 52-48 between Republicans and Democrats, McConnell can lose no more than two votes and still prevail.

The bill on halls approved by the Bureau cancels mandates that require individuals to carry out insurance and businesses to deliver them and reveals the extension of the Medicaid program for the poor and the disabled, which was adopted under President Barack Obama's law. Pathology reports are expected in the next several days.

The Senator is resting comfortably at home and is in good condition. His office said he would spend next week in Arizona recovering from the surgery, leaving McConnell short of the votes to move forward.

McCain, 80, is three times surviving melanoma. Records of his medical exams released in 2008 when he was the GOP candidate for president showed that he has had removed precancerous skin lesions, as well as an early stage squamous cell carcinoma, an easily cured skin cancer.

Sen. John Cornyn tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that there should be a vote once there is a "full contingent of senators" available.
