Dems' motions, speeches knock GOP health bill for secrecy

Democratic Senators Search Washington In An Effort To Find The GOP’s Secret Healthcare Bill Dems' motions, speeches knock GOP health bill for secrecy

Democratic lawmakers have brought the Senate to a near-halt in an effort to protest the secret Republican healthcare bill. Democrats fear he is purposely keeping the bill under wraps until the last minute so he can jam the controversial plan through with just a few hours of floor debate. While senators acknowledge that the bill is nearing completion, unlike in the past with nearly every major bill the GOP hasn't held a single committee hearing or even publicly shared the draft texts of what they're working on.

But if the GOP leaders are on the cusp of a vote, most senators aren't in the loop.

Democrats can't completely stop the Senate's business or prevent Republicans from producing a secret health care plan and trying to rush it to the floor.

It's still not clear when that plan will be made public.

The White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, said he did not know whether legislative staff had been briefed on the Senate healthcare bill.

Republican sources on Capitol Hill today are expressing confidence their bill will be put forward next week.

One sticking point in these deliberations is what will happen to patients who receive opioid treatment under expanded Medicaid.

Many Republican Senators haven't yet seen the bill either.

Nashville Predators forward James Neal and Anaheim Ducks defenseman Sami Vatanen also were left unprotected. The expansion Vegas Golden Knights must spend at least to the salary floor in their first season.

Republicans must grapple with several unresolved issues, including how quickly to phase out the expansion of the Medicaid program in the 2010 health law (PL 111-148, PL 111-152).

"Health care is priority No. 1 right now", said Nicole Gill, executive director of Tax March, which organized more than 100 rallies across the country on April 15.

"We believe we can and must do better than Obamacare's status quo", he said.

The secretive nature of senators working on the bill is, according to one Senate historian, unprecedented in recent times. Using these rates as estimates for the future, it means the House bill stays even with inflation by increasing its spending cap 3.7 percent per year. And by asking for unanimous consent, they'd have McConnell on record objecting to giving the bill a hearing.

"I rest my case", Schumer said. Many Republican senators have pushed for a more gradual phaseout in their bill, as well as preserving certain protections for preexisting conditions under the ACA not maintained in the House bill. Voters are increasingly less likely to trust Republicans on health care, and independent voters have been embracing Obamacare. Democrats have even suggested a scenario in which Senate debate begins on a preliminary version of the GOP measure and McConnell offers the final package as a late amendment, giving Democrats little or no time to criticize it. He said that this is the only way to get something done, and if they fail to get something done, they will be voted out of office. Not complete silence followed by a vote that requires only a majority of 51. "If you get a copy of it, will you send me a copy?"
