McCain's Blood Clot Blocks Obamacare Repeal Vote

Medicaid affects millions of Americans, young and old

Medicaid affects millions of Americans, young and old

There was no reason given but it was known the agency was scrambling to complete its analysis of the bill, especially a complicated amendment by Republican Sen. Collins, a more moderate Republican said that she felt the Medicaid cuts were too deep.

According to Rand Paul the Senate Majority Leader still doesn't have his ducks in a row, so he's probably thrilled to get a 14-day reprieve.

"I think the longer the bill's out there, the more conservative Republicans are going to discover that it's not repeal", Mr. Paul said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation". "It's not at all consistent with Republican principles". By a two-to-one margin, Americans prefer the Affordable Care Act: 50% backed the ACA, while only 24% said they support the GOP alternative.

Vice President Mike Pence and other administration officials sought to allay these fears on Friday and Saturday by arguing that the health-care bill shores up Medicaid's finances to preserve the program for the future.

Collins agrees that the process should be more transparent.

The Kentucky Republican's new legislation changes how much money states that expanded their Medicaid programs for the poor a year ago would get.

McConnell's Saturday announcement was another setback for GOP efforts to repeal and replace "Obamacare" after years of promises. "They don't fix it - they just subsidize it with taxpayer moneys".

A former teammate of Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento, Rondo would likely serve as a backup to Jrue Holiday . Rondo is not always quick to pass the ball, so that will be an adjustment, though he did play well with Cousins before.

The delay carries multiple risks for Republicans who want to win the support of both moderate and conservative senators who are still undecided about whether to vote for the proposal. On Thursday, McConnell set the Monday vote to advance Shanahan. "I don't know whether it will pass", she said on CNN.

McConnell last week had refashioned the legislation to attract additional GOP votes. He said if money is reduced, governors will be left to decide among unpopular choices: "Raise a tax or limit coverage or change eligibility requirements" for coverage.

Meanwhile, the latest Congressional Budget Office report on the bill - and likely negative headlines for the White House and GOP about people who could lose health care under their plan - won't be released Monday as previously planned.

McConnell's initial challenge is to get all the remaining holdouts to agree not to vote with Democrats to block the measure from even reaching the floor for debate. A vote was postponed last month, also due to limited support.

The hard political calculus facing Republicans was clear in a new poll released Sunday showing the public prefers the Affordable Care Act to the Republican health-care plan by a roughly 2-to-1 margin. More often than not, a blood clot "in this area would be a very concerning issue", he said.

The Senate bill, like legislation the House passed earlier, repeals mandates requiring individuals to carry insurance and businesses to offer it, and unravels an expansion of the Medicaid program enacted under President Barack Obama's law.
