GOP disunity painfully clear in Senate health care debate

GOP disunity painfully clear in Senate health care debate GOP disunity painfully clear in Senate health care debate

He added on Saturday: "Republicans in the Senate will NEVER win if they don't go to a 51 vote majority NOW".

Unlike previous attempts to craft legislation to repeal or replace Obamacare, the skinny bill does not end the law's Medicaid expansion or make changes to the federal health programme. The three Republicans were Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of ME and John McCain of Arizona.

Trump was referring to a longstanding Senate rule, which requires 60 votes to overcome a filibuster in the upper chamber.

"I've stated time and time again that one of the major failures of Obamacare was that it was rammed through Congress by Democrats on a strict-party line basis without a single Republican vote", McCain said in a statement.

Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., said the Senate would "send the bill over with every belief that the House will go to conference".

But that plan caused consternation among GOP senators after rumors began to surface that the House might just pass the "skinny bill", call it a day and move on to other issues like tax reform after frittering away the first six months of Trump's presidency on unsuccessful efforts over health care.

The Trump administration had also put pressure on Sen Murkowski, with President Trump tweeting on Wednesday that she had "let the Republicans, and our country, down". He said it also would have provided more flexibility to states in providing medical care to low-income Americans and repeals the medical device tax for three years while increasing the amount of money that people can contribute to Health Savings Accounts.

Democrat Chuck Schumer said his party was relieved that millions of people would retain their healthcare.

Speaking to a audience of law enforcement officers on Long Island, N.Y., President Trump said, "They should have approved health care last night, but you can't have everything, boy oh boy".

The big problem is that there are no guarantees the the House will not simply pass "skinny repeal" after the Senate does. "Let's turn the page and work together to improve our health care system", he added.

"I've told everybody this can not be the final product", said Sen.

"I suspect they are pretty satisfied tonight".

PHOENIX - Sen. John McCain sent shockwaves through the Senate early Friday morning when he cast the deciding vote rejecting the GOP's heath care effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

"We worked really hard to try to develop a consensus for a better way forward", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said during a speech on the Senate floor after the vote.

Cornyn is the Republican Majority Whip and is actively encouraging Senators to vote for a bill he does not support.

McCain said it came down to the idea that it was a repeal without a foreseeable plan to replace.

The bill at hand would have revoked the widely unpopular individual mandate that required Americans to buy insurance or pay a penalty, and another mandate on employers.

"The burden remains on the Senate to demonstrate that it is capable of passing something that keeps our promise, as the House has already done", Ryan said.

Earlier in the week, two GOP efforts to scrap the 2010 law failed. And Democrats are saying, we're ready to deal on health care and maybe even more.

Senate Republicans released the plan late Thursday just hours before voting on an amendment to take up the bill. Had Skinny Repeal (or something close to it) become law, it would increase premiums and the number of uninsured Americans, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
