Trump fires back at McCain over health care bill

Provisions shoehorned into the Republican health care bill dangle extra money for Alaska and Wisconsin, home states of one GOP senator whose vote party leaders desperately need and another who co-sponsored the legislation, according to analysts who've studied the legislation.

The new bill, known as Graham-Cassidy, would completely shake up how the federal government allocates money to states to cover health care.

"I'm leaning against the bill".

All eyes remain on Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).

Republicans in Congress are pushing yet another plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and Texas, at first glance, looks like one of the big beneficiaries in the short term. If three Senate Republicans voted against the bill, it would not pass. Republican leaders hoped that since McCain is a very close friend with SC U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, that he would have supported the bill.

But delays in getting eight more countries to ratify the treaty mean that it still has not entered into force. However, nuclear-armed States and most of their allies stayed out of the negotiations.

Using a different method of calculating the legislation's effects, Kaiser forecasts an overall reduction of $160 billion between 2020, when most of the bill's changes would begin, and 2026, when it would stop funding the block grants. "He'd sign copies of the Koran at the Barnes and Noble in Fallujah if it meant he could get rid of Obamacare". National opinion surveys show that overall a majority of Americans want to keep the current law, although many Republicans do not. Rand Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, has also been clear since Graham-Cassidy gained momentum last week that he is opposed to the legislation. The chance to pass repeal and replace with just 50 votes expires at the end of this month and it's hard to imagine some other proposal sweeping in that could achieve their goals. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., in 2009 and Beau Biden, son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, in 2015.

In a joint statement, the nonprofit group Health Care for All, Associated Industries of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Medical Society warned that the latest repeal plan will severely strain the state's budget and leave tens of thousands of residents - including seniors, children and people with disabilities - without access to quality, affordable health care.

"I have some initial concerns, and will continue to research the legislation and listen to my constituents on the best approach to health care reform in this country", Faso said Wednesday.

But some, including President Donald Trump, have speculated that Paul or Collins could still change their minds before the bill comes to a vote.

On Friday the Community Health Network of Washington and the Washington Association of Community and Migrant Health Centers, which represent more than 250 clinics in Washington, denounced the Graham-Cassidy bill as "an attack on the low-income patients they serve".

In his last message, he made an appeal for global aid, writing: "We will need help, my friends, we will need help of all kinds". Aside from the islands already damaged by the Category 5 Irma , Maria also battered Caribbean islands that were spared by Irma.

In a tweet, Kimmel thanks McCain "for being a hero again and again and now AGAIN".

Obama has only rarely publicly engaged in the day-to-day Washington policy fights since Trump replaced him in January. John McCain over the Arizona Republican's opposition to the latest effort to overhaul the nation's health law.

"The legislation that we passed was full of things that still need to be fixed; it wasn't ideal, but it was better". "Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will affect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it", said McCain.

"It is aggravating", Obama said.
