Internists reaffirm 'strongest possible opposition' to Graham-Cassidy proposal

Although Senators Graham and Cassidy said they would press ahead with the legislation, there were doubts whether the party leadership in the Senate would bring it to vote, given the near-certain defeat of the measure.

McCain, who decisively voted against a GOP health care bill in July, is opposed to the latest, last-ditch version sponsored by Graham and Sen. "We decided, since we don't have the votes to postpone the vote", said Bill Cassidy, surrounded by the staff's republican Senate.

Majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced the decision to keep the bill from vote on the Senate floor.

The blame lies instead lies with liberal GOP Senators John McCain of Arizona, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska who have conspired to sink previous repeal efforts.

Collins joins fellow Republican Sens. GOP Senator John McCain was hailed as a hero by the Democrats for voting against the Republican bill.

With their narrow 52-48 majority in the Senate and solid Democratic opposition, three GOP "no" votes would doom the bill.

Not holding a vote on the Graham-Cassidy legislation means Republicans will officially miss the September 30 deadline that would allow the GOP to repeal the ACA without any Democratic support.

Gillibrand credited opponents who "made clear that they would be harmed if that bill passed" for helping derail the Republicans' health care repeal measure.

"Under the health care system we now have, too many insurance companies continue to value their profits more than they value the people they're supposed to be helping", she said.

"We will have the votes for Healthcare but not for the reconciliation deadline of Friday, after which we need 60".

"We ran out of time", said Sen.

Collins said the short-term increase in funding was going to be overwhelmed with the long-term cuts in the Medicaid program.

Leaving a lunch of Republican senators who'd gathered to discuss their next steps on the issue, Sen.

Through this law, millions of New Yorkers have been able to enroll in high quality affordable health care offered by the New York State of Health Marketplace in the form of Medicaid, the Essential Plan or commercial plans.

During a news conference Tuesday, McConnell said the fight to change the health care system is not over. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pulled the plug on the latest version of a bill created to dismantle the controversial health law.

The main thrust of the Graham-Cassidy bill was to give money to the states, so that each would decide what health care model their constituents wanted to go with.

Our view? We support a full repeal, but we do believe getting rid of the individual and employer mandates would be a positive first step to take.

Democrats urged Republicans to finally drop their push to replace Obamacare and instead work with them to improve the law. Schumer said. He added that Democrats are ready to work with Republicans on a bipartisan solution.
