Press for info on Senate health bill

Irune Rengel | 20 Junio, 2017, 11:04

They called for open committee hearings and more time to consider the bill before a Senate vote, which Republicans say could come in the next two weeks, although a draft bill has yet to emerge publicly.

Amidst mounting frustration about Republicans' secretive deliberations to repeal Obamacare, Democrats plan to throw sand in the gears of the Senate to try to force a more public debate.

As the ongoing controversy over President Donald Trump and Russian Federation continues to dominate headlines, Senate Republicans have been secretly crafting a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Asked to comment, a spokesman for Republican Majority leader Mitch McConnell said only that the Senate meant to vote on nominees for Trump administration positions in the coming days.

According to Senate Republican aides familiar with the Senate negotiations, leaders in the chamber are weighing lowering the annual growth rate for the Medicaid program beginning in 2025.

Democrats are demolishing the lies and delivering facts as a first step in derailing the secret Republican health care bill.

Senate Democrats plan to go all out in their protest against the GOP healthcare bill starting Monday night. Democrats plan to object to all requests for unanimous consent and they plan to make their own consent requests to move the health care negotiations into committee where the conversation can take place publicly.

Senate Democrats, in taking action Monday, are inserting themselves into a process that has excluded them by design.

"They're ashamed of it, plain and simple", Schumer said.

McConnell is trying to complete work on the bill and bring it to the Senate floor next week.

No one knows exactly what a final Senate bill will look like - and senators from expansion states already are asserting that current enrollment numbers will be maintained. And so the secrecy gives Republican senators cover to hash out their significant and serious differences on this bill, a bill, by the way - at least the House version - which is not at all popular.

Senators are not obligated to hold meetings in the open, but Democrats pointed out that there were lengthy committee meetings and many days of floor debate on Obamacare before it passed in 2010.

The group is spending $1.5 million targeting the lawmakers with ads that include a TV commercial that begins with the scene of a young boy wheezing in his bedroom and his mother rushing to get his asthma medication.

Since everything is being done in secret, we have to depend upon the grapevine which says there will be drastic cuts, leaving millions without health-care coverage. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska; Jeff Flake of Arizona; Susan Collins of Maine; Dean Heller of Nevada; and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia. All of them except Collins also represent states which expanded Medicaid under Obamacare.

The expansion reaches individuals earning about $15,800 a year in New Mexico, or $32,319 for a family of four. Some Republicans, including Capito, have pushed for a more gradual seven-year rollback. The amended bill would then need House approval before heading to President Donald Trump to become law.
