Democratic Slumber Party Part VI: Seizing The Senate Floor Over Obamacare Repeal

Irune Rengel | 20 Junio, 2017, 10:57

Schumer initially refused, but Senate Democrats said they've grown more frustrated as Republicans have continued to keep details of their bill secret. "Since last week, I have gotten more than 1,000 phone calls from people who are pleading with me to do whatever I can to stop Republicans", Warren said from the Senate floor, according to the Hill.

While the Trump Administration Hydra grows a new venomous head almost every hour, a handful of Senate Republicans are quietly trying to push through an Obamacare replacement bill before the July 4th recess.

Some Senate Democrats also are preparing to block lengthy committee hearings beginning on Tuesday, although Democratic leaders have not announced or confirmed that decision.

Your Democratic Senator can draw attention to the secret process and slow down Senate business, through a combination of filibustering and "withholding consent".

McConnell responded that senators would meet on the Senate floor with an unlimited amendment process.

The Republican health care bill could be voted on as early as next week - ahead of the July 4th recess - without any committee hearings or public input. It should tell you something that major, major legislation is being written at this moment, and most Republicans don't have a clue as to what's in that legislation, let alone Democrats, let alone the average American.

A group of ten Republican Senators are secretly meeting and writing a plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

Analysts said 23 million more Americans would be without health care under the House bill. "Now, Democrat efforts to feign outrage over health care negotiations should be seen for what it is - a pure partisan game aimed at placating the far-left". He said the entire Senate Republican conference has been "active and engaged" for months on legislation that would stabilize insurance markets, remove mandates to buy insurance, and preserve access to care for those with pre-existing conditions.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer pointed to "very good" progress on the bill, but he declined to say whether White House aides had even seen a draft.

"We have to be part of the political process like we've never been before", Sanders said. Republicans need 50 Senators plus the Vice President to provide the margin of victory on their health care package - which we are still waiting to read. In the House of Representatives, conservatives wrote to McConnell about media reports on the Senate's work.
