Sen. Angus King: Senate is 'flying blind' on Cassidy-Graham bill

Jimmy Kimmel’s Shredding Of Graham Cassidy Is The Explanation That America Needs To Hear

That's according to McConnell's spokesman, David Popp. She and Sen. Lamar Alexander, who is chaiman, held a series of four hearings over two weeks with patients, doctors, hospital officials and insurance experts to develop new legislation. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) for pushing an Obamacare repeal bill that does not pass the so-called "Jimmy Kimmel test", Cassidy insisted that his bill actually would protect more Americans. Due to a ruling by the Senate parliamentarian, Senate Republicans have only until September 30 to use the procedure. Senate Republicans need 50 of their 52 members to pass the bill. Cassidy-Graham is, instead, a cynical bait and switch strategy.

The Graham-Cassidy bill does not live up to those promises, and Kimmel called Cassidy out for his blatant dishonesty. GOP Senators John McCain of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME - all of whom voted against the first Republican effort to repeal parts of Obamacare - are undecided, although McCain indicated that he may "reluctantly" back the new effort. The grants would provide money to each state to do as it sees fit regarding health care, but with less money, meaning some people would lose Medicaid coverage unless the state was able to fund subsidies.

He's promoting his efforts to address New Jersey's opioid epidemic. Rand Paul Wednesday for not supporting the effort.

The plan promoted by the Louisiana Republican would undo the central pillars of former President Barack Obama's law.

It would give states control over billions of dollars in federal health care spending.

When police arrived at the scene, Barrett told them he was "playing a prank" on his daughter, according to WFMJ . Two men ended up facing charges: the dad wearing the mask and the neighbor who opened fire in reaction.

Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy plans to use the most recent effort to repeal and replace portions of the Affordable Care Act to push an amendment that would bar states from enacting their own single-payer systems, he told reporters on Monday.

The senator promised that he'd only support a bill that passed the "Jimmy Kimmel test" - meaning that it would guarantee coverage for kids like Kimmel's son, born with congenital heart disease. "I believe that most Republicans like the idea of state-controlled health care, versus Washington, DC-controlled health care", Graham said Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Senate Republicans are attempting to dismantle the ACA and dramatically cut Medicaid with legislation co-authored by Sens.

President Trump criticized Sen.
