Details on Obamacare replacement bill shouldn't be secret

Obamacare in 2018 Many will pay the price

"I really don't know that we can predict either way how this is going to turn out before recess", she said.

The letter, dated Friday and also signed by Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Gov. Steve Bullock of Montana, Gov. Brian Sandoval of Nevada, Gov. John Bel Edwards of Louisiana, Gov. Charles D. Baker of MA and Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, calls on members of the Senate to seek out "opportunity to craft solutions to [U.S. health care] challenges that can find support across party lines, delivering improvements to result in a system that is available and affordable for every American".

When Mitch McConnell and his Republican colleagues say they've created a committee of the whole by listening to 52% of the chamber, they're arguing, in a rather literal sense, that they see Democrats as something less than fully legitimate members of the Senate. The aides say leadership is leaning toward just a three-year phase out of the program, which is more generous than the House bill, but still less than the seven years that Portman and other Republicans in Medicaid expansion states have requested.

Democrats are quick to point out that the Affordable Care Act was debated openly with dozens of public hearings and amendments over the course of a almost a year before they brought the bill to a vote.

The "health care" act originally approved by President Trump that passed the House and is now being debated in the Senate would reduce spending on Medicaid by over $800 billion, the largest spending reduction in a social insurance program in USA history.

Senate Republican Marco Rubio said he hoped there would be "plenty of time for debate and analysis" on such a crucial bill.

"The situation in Nevada shows that chaos and instability in healthcare does not help the Republican case for free market reform - it undermines it", Gingrich said. He said his group is targeting 11 Senate Republicans, including Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Dean Heller of Nevada, Rob Portman of OH and Collins and Murkowski.

Family: Michigan native shot multiple times in chest, arm
The family of a MI who was injured Wednesday in a shooting at a GOP baseball practice has released an update on his condition. Mika is a former aide to Michigan Republican congressman Tim Walberg .

Senate Republicans have said they have no plans to publicly release the draft health care bill.

On Monday night, Democrats will "begin objecting to all unanimous consent requests", according to a senior Senate Democratic aide. Last week, a coalition of medical and consumer groups held an event in Cleveland that was billed as the first of a series of gatherings to speak out against a bill that passed the GOP-controlled House and the direction that Republican senators appear to be heading.

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

The Senate won't vote until the Congressional Budget Office evaluates the proposal's effect on health care coverage - including how many Americans would stand to gain or lose coverage. Meanwhile, Senate Democrats might decide to bring the Senate as close to a standstill as its minority position allows them in a protest against the unprecedented secrecy with which Senate Republicans are proceeding. Other lawmakers also expressed frustration about the line from Trump, according to the report.

The [AHCA] would fundamentally redefine health care in our country.

He added: "I hate to think that looking back on this period, we'll realize that the most regressive piece of social legislation in modern American history was passed, and no one was paying attention".

McConnell, R-Ky., has been under criticism, including from some fellow Republican senators, for writing the Senate version behind closed doors.
