GOP, Dem governors call for changes in House health bill

Sound familiar? Remember what then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in the Democratic rush to pass Obamacare in 2010?

I think the Republican base in Montana would be well-advised to call U.S. Sen. "If you get a copy of it, will you send me a copy?" John Thune (R-SD) in a speech on the Senate floor, as he said the House-passed bill was a "good start".

Anthony Carroll, associate state director for advocacy for AARP in Iowa, said the House bill is a "starting point" for the Senate and this a key chance for AARP to weigh in with lawmakers.

A crucial part of the political gamble the Republicans are making is for their healthcare bill to be budget neutral, which means they can pass it through a process called budget reconciliation.

The Senate could vote on the plan next week.

The bill is being written by just 13 senators, all of whom are men.

Meanwhile, Democrats have been holding news conferences and calling on Republicans to share with them more details of the negotiations. Sen.

Rep. Mike Lee (R-Utah) also expressing heavy concern about the current legislation, meaning Paul may have some room to push the legislation in a more conservative direction. Funds for Planned Parenthood might be eliminated altogether.

At least in public, they aren't showing their cards as of yet. Democrats have howled that the bill would reduce access to affordable coverage and undercut Obamacare's protections for those with pre-existing conditions.

If the Senate's bill looks similar to the House's version, however, she's opposed, as Murkowski told the publication that legislation "does not help Alaska".

"It is deeply disturbing", Erika Sward, assistant vice president of the American Lung Association, told the Associated Press. This is likely due to the fact that, because of pressure exerted by the hardline House Freedom Caucus, the AHCA would hit poor and elderly Americans the hardest.

President Donald Trump has been eager for quick action, although in a closed-door luncheon with 15 GOP senators last week, he described a House-passed bill as "mean".

The secret Senate version reportedly preserves most of the mean stuff but stretches out the implementation from three years to as many as seven.

Politico's report said that meeting the deadline seems unlikely, since resolving the disputes is not the only job remaining.

Some of Obamacare's taxes could also be repealed later when Congress tackles new legislation overhauling the US tax code, two current Senate aides said.

The sources say the president did not specify what aspects of the bill he was characterizing.

All of governors who signed the letter are from states that expanded Medicaid under ObamaCare, but the Republican bill in both chambers is set to end the federal funding for that expansion.
