GOP senators to get glimpse of leadership's health care ideas

Trump declared during a Tuesday afternoon meeting with congressional Republican leaders that the Senate would move quickly "and get a bill across the finish line this summer that will be great health care for Americans".

When the bill arrives, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) has the ability to bring up the legislation under the provisions of reconciliation, which include a nondebatable motion to proceed that requires only a simple majority vote; no filibuster; time limits on overall debate, amendments, and motions; and the adoption of the legislation by a simple majority vote.

He added, "I look forward to hearing from the parliamentarian as soon as possible on the broader ruling on whether the Trump-Ryan health care bill is in compliance".

"What we've been told so far, states would have the ability, a lot more power than they do under Obamacare, to shape their future, and I think we've gotta return the power to the states", the Louisiana senator said, potentially referring to state waivers for certain Obamacare regulations or per-capita cuts to Medicaid spending. The House bill would eliminate enhanced federal funding for Medicaid expansion in 2020 and curtail support for the program overall.

"We talked more in terms of the goals".

"We're running out of time in terms of stabilizing the really need to fish or cut bait here on something short term to stabilize the markets", he said. Republicans have sought to overturn Democratic former President Barack Obama's signature domestic law since it was enacted in 2010.

The Trump administration's decision to hold cost-sharing payments "hostage as a political tool" is to blame for insurance companies deciding not to offer coverage in certain areas, Schumer said. Trump denies any collusion with Russian Federation and has called the investigation a "witch hunt."The Justice Department has appointed a special counsel to oversee its probe into the Russian Federation issue and several congressional panels also are investigating the matter".

In total, the proposal - crafted by House Republican leaders - would remove more than $150 million the Senate proposed to spend. Leaders would have to choose between fulfilling their longtime campaign promise to repeal Obamacare or passing a tax cut. "We just try to manage that growth".

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., on Tuesday accused Trump of holding the subsidies "hostage".

I am stunned that that's what Leader McConnell would call regular order, which he sanctimoniously said would be the order of the day when the Republicans took the Senate over.

On Thursday, the Hillreported that two key GOP senators, who had both expressed skepticism over the AHCA's Medicaid expansion cuts, are now open to phasing out that expansion.

Apparently unsure how to respond, Hatch briefly conferred with an aide before telling McCaskill "I think we've already had one" and saying her ideas on the issue are welcome.

The House bill, passed May 4 on a narrow 217-213 vote, would let states allow insurers to charge higher premiums to people with pre-existing conditions and a gap in coverage as long as the state provides help - such as a high-risk pool - for people priced out of commercial insurance.

Tuesday's lunch meeting may be the first opportunity conservatives and moderates have to see which direction leadership is moving after wide-ranging disagreements within the working group.

"There's no doubt that keeping members focused on investigations detracts from our legislative agenda, detracts from what we're trying to deliver for the American people", Marc Short, Trump's legislative affairs director, told reporters Monday night. "We pretty much know what we have to do".
