Trump vows GOP will continue efforts to repeal Obamacare

Trump vows GOP will continue efforts to repeal Obamacare

Senator Susan Collins, reputed to be a moderate Republican, announced her decision to vote against the repeal and replace measure after a report by the nonpartisan Congress Budget Office projected that millions of Americans would lose their health insurance under the alternative Bill sponsored by Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy.

"The U.S. Senate can not get the text of a bill on a Sunday night, then proceed to a vote just days later, with only one hearing - and especially not on an issue that is intensely personal to all of us", Murkowski said in a statement.

The Bangor Daily News reported that Pence told WGAN Radio that the administration hoped Collins' "no" vote wouldn't kill the Graham-Cassidy bill.

After the defection of the three senators, the republican majority has been forced to postpone the vote on the repeal of Obamacare. Prior to Collins' announcement, Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., have said they would vote "no" on the bill.

Senators are pressing for a vote prior to a September 30 deadline, in which a procedural rule regarding budget resolutions with reconciliation instructions that allows the Senate to pass budget-related legislation with a simple majority vote will expire.

"With a process that gives more attention and time, we will repeal and replace Obamacare with a block grant called Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson", he said.

German business confidence unexpectedly deteriorated in September, according to a widely-followed survey released on Monday.

On the "Rick & Bubba Show", a radio programme, Trump singled out McCain, calling his vote in July "a tremendous slap in the face of the Republican Party". "We're going to try to do this in some form in this session of Congress".

Rejection became all but inevitable Monday after Maine GOP 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. On a conference call with reporters Tuesday, she said the program would replace the for-profit insurance industry, but it wouldn't lead to government-controlled health care.

"Everybody agrees that people in those circumstances need their health care supported, but there are a lot of different ways you can achieve that and I don't think you have to have a one-size-fits-all policy for Washington, D.C.", Toomey said. "You know what? The real question is, 'What do we do?' What do we do now?" No, but we got it done...

This is a punch in the gut to Trump and his supporters, who see this as another attempt by the Republican-majority Senate to obstruct Trump's agenda to help Americans who either don't have health care or can no longer afford it. On Tuesday, Senate leaders said they would miss a key deadline for voting on an ACA repeal before the end of the fiscal year. "We go and we do reform that's common sense, and we don't care about the politics". Representative Richard Neal (D-MA) said the president made it clear "he was going to work with Democrats on a plan" if his healthcare interests weren't met, according to CNN.
