Revised Senate bill fails to address core AMA concerns

Rand Paul Split GOP healthcare bill in two if this bill fails

Trump wrote; "After all of these years of suffering thru Obamacare, Republican Senators must come through as they have promised".

Both of Georgia's senators are expected to vote in favor of the latest version of the Senate health care plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, which was released Thursday.

According to NBC News, only Republican Sens. But Democrats say it's still a non-starter and even moderate Republicans in the Senate say they may not be able to vote for this version either. GOP Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Kentucky's Rand Paul have said they'll vote "no," leaving McConnell no wiggle room.

"Obamacare's yearslong hurdle towards collapse is reaching its seemingly inevitable conclusion - total meltdown - which would hurt even more Americans on top of those it has hurt already", said Senate Majority Leader Sen.

While this exemption was included in the Senate health care bill out of procedural necessity, we must still be diligent in ensuring that Members of Congress are treated just like other Americans under this law. The U.S. House of Representatives passed its own version of the legislation in May.

He said the GOP senators are right to be cautious, especially given reports from federal experts that millions of people would lose their health care coverage and others may end up paying higher costs. The group has called for sit-ins at Senate offices on Tuesday, July 18, when Republicans could hold their first procedural vote on the bill.

Wall Street gains as tech stocks rise; focus shifts to earnings
Delta Air Lines Inc . reported second-quarter earnings that missed expectations, although revenue rose. Another set of data showed weekly jobless claims fell last week for the first time in a month.

Said Chris Hansen, president of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network: "This bill would leave patients and those with pre-existing conditions paying more for less coverage".

The new Senate version backed by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and released Thursday bids for conservative support by allowing insurers to sell low-priced, slimmed-down policies and added billions to combat opioid abuse and help cut skyrocketing insurance costs.

The latest Senate bill provides $45 billion to fight the opioid epidemic that has swept the nation, after some senators - especially those whose states have been hardest hit by the crisis - expressed a need for more federal attention to the matter.

"Today, Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell released a new draft that would still rip health care from millions of people, with a particularly devastating impact on low-income senior citizens, women, children, LGBTQ people, and people living with HIV", said HRC Government Affairs Director David Stacy. More people now die in the USA annually from drug overdoses than from auto accidents or gunshot wounds. A leading option discussed by Senate leadership this week is to tie the debt limit legislation to an extension of a program letting veterans receive medical care outside of Veterans Affairs facilities, one of the people said.

Now, the Senate may vote to remove the exemption much like the House did before them, but that doesn't change the fact that this is a awful bill that will do bad things for millions of Americans, and that Congress's first instinct upon seeing said bill was to make sure it didn't touch them.
