Trump calls for 51-vote majority but math is off

Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John Mc Cain are worried that House lawmakers will simply pass a health care measure they deem to be subpar rather than renegotiating a better text

John McCain, R-Ariz., who returned to the Senate this week after receiving a diagnosis of brain cancer.

"I think everybody in there, maybe except for one senator, promised their supporters, their voters that they supported repeal of Obamacare", said Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.

"The political pressure on something like this is real", said GOP strategist Mike Shields. Lisa Murkowski - voting against the proposal. Instead, McCain took a vote that very well may re-chart the course of Trump's own legislative agenda.

Following rejection of two broader GOP repeal plans earlier in the week, Friday's vote cast doubt on whether divided Senate Republicans can advance any health bill despite seven years of promises to repeal "Obamacare".

Republicans say no decisions have been finalized.

The House bill and Senate's original legislation would ease the ability of states to waive several of these provisions.

In a statement, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., pointedly said "the House delivered a bill".

But health care proved to be much tougher than those.

But leaders were encountering problems. They are laughing at R's.

"We call upon the speaker to establish a process - we can go right to the committees - and have the discussion on how we keep America healthy", Ms Pelosi said. The American people want us to work together. "Outsourced the whole issue to Congress".

McConnell's "skinny repeal" bill would end an unpopular requirement that individuals get coverage or risk fines, as well as a similar obligation imposed on larger employers.

Wenger tells Sanchez to respect his Arsenal contract
The Gunners have insisted all summer that he isn't for sale after contract talks stalled but could decide to soften their stance rather than keep a player who clearly wants to leave.

And by the time it's over, Republicans hope they will have found something, anything, that can get enough votes to pass.

"I will be calling up the chiefs of the services, those men and women in uniform who are the heads of the military, and ask them their views, including the cost of implementing, I'm talking about the fiscal costs, of implementing some of these changes, and we'll be having hearings", he said at the time. 200 Bills sit in Senate.

Trump referred to Washington as "the swamp" before pledging that "we're going to get it done".

In a remarkable coda to the night's dramatic events, a few moments after McConnell finished his emotional floor speech, he announced to the chamber that he wanted the Senate to turn next to the annual defense bill and pass it the next day. "This effort will continue", Price said.

Buoyed by a signal from Ryan, McConnell had introduced a pared-down health care bill late Thursday that he hoped would keep alive Republican ambitions to repeal "Obamacare". Obama's law extended coverage to some 20 million people, reducing the nation's uninsured rate to a historic low of around 9 percent. In total, 51 senators-the three rogue Republicans, plus all 48 Democratic senators-voted against the repeal, while 49 Republicans voted in favor. But just repealing the requirement would lead to a spike in premiums.

"If moving forward requires a conference committee, that is something the House is willing to do", Ryan said. It was not meant to become law, but to open a path for a House-Senate conference committee to try to work out comprehensive legislation Congress could pass and send to Trump. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota voted "no", but others have said they won't participate in the health care debate anymore until they see a final version of legislation Republicans intend to offer. It would have delayed a tax on medical devices. Mitch M, go to 51 Votes NOW and WIN.

But in light of rumors that the House could pass the bill as-is, they are looking for a guarantee from Ryan that that won't happen. Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME voted with Democrats to defeat the measure. Because there was concern among Republicans that the border wall funding would be rejected by the full House.

However the House might be unwilling to agree to the "skinny bill" as-is.

In an astonishing development, longtime Arizona Sen. It would allow states to seek waivers from consumer protections in the Obama-era law, and increase the amount that individuals could contribute to tax-sheltered health savings accounts for medical expenses.

In the rushed process of trying to come up with legislation, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office released a narrow analysis even later on Thursday night.
