Hatch backs new GOP Senate health care bill, Lee undecided


About 40 percent of all voters oppose the Senate's Better Care Reconciliation Act, while 47 percent disapprove, the poll showed.

Health insurance lobbying groups are raising concerns about a proposed amendment to the Senate health care bill, warning that a proposal from Sen.

The Times also said the new bill would convert Medicaid from an open-ended entitlement to a system of fixed payments to states.

"This is the Senate leadership's third swing at replacement legislation and they have officially struck out.The Senate should drop this plan and start working to help and not hurt America's families". Instead, Paul has argued that the Republican health care plans leave Obamacare's essential structure in place while bailing out insurance companies.

The bill would expand the use of health-savings accounts; make cuts to Medicaid; and give tax credits to consumers to buy insurance. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.) unveiled a plan that would divert much of Obamacare funding to the states through block grants.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said including the Cruz proposal would not be enough to get his support.

Without making the bill budget neutral, Republicans would be forced to win over some Democrats to pass the 60-vote threshold need to close debate on a bill of that nature. Susan Collins of ME and Rand Paul of Kentucky already said they do not support the latest proposal. In the new plan, $45 billion would be available to states.

Under the revised plan published by senate majority leader Mitch Mc Connell, two taxes on high-income earners which had been abolished in the original draft have been restored - a 3.8 per cent tax on investment income and a 0.9 per cent charge on income. And in some ways it looks even more like Obamacare than previous iterations.

"We will be in session the first two weeks of August - that we had originally anticipated not being here", McConnell said at a news conference on Tuesday accompanied by fellow Senate GOP leaders. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, to permit stripped-down health plans that amount to catastrophic coverage and little else. With Lee and a handful of other GOP senators still undecided (and seemingly rather ambivalent about the merits of the legislation), it's going to be very close. Of those, 15 million would lose Medicaid coverage.
