Health care bill could cost Hawaii billions in Medicaid

To recap, the Senate received the House-passed American Health Care Act in May.

"I think, in the end, this is going to come down to some compromise and the Senate listening to everyone", Perry said. Trump has called the House bill "mean" and prodded senators to produce a package with more "heart".

But adjustments to placate conservatives, who want the legislation to be more stringent, only push away moderates who think its current limits - on Medicaid for example - are too strong.

Because the Senate is hoping to pass the bill with a simple majority, Republicans now hold a slight majority of 52 seats, and no Democrats are expected to vote for the bill, the most support Republicans can lose to still pass the bill is three senators (with a tie, Vice President Mike Pence would be expected to break it in favor of the bill).

The Times, in its Wednesday editions, said Trump was less involved in the press for the Senate bill than with the earlier House bill - making fewer phone calls to senators, for instance.

So far, at least six Republican senators have said they will vote against the bill - more than enough to stop it from passing. Thirty-one states plus Washington, D.C., accepted the Medicaid expansion offered under former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act while 19 states did not, and there are Republican senators representing states in each group. The bill was short of support heading toward a critical procedural vote Wednesday.

If Republicans are unsuccessful in their efforts to repeal the law, 37 percent said they would blame the GOP majority and 23 percent said they'd blame Democrats, who are in the minority. John Thune of South Dakota told reporters later.

The Medicaid cuts and projected coverage losses under the Senate measure have cast doubt on whether Republican leaders will be able to muster enough votes for passage.

The ad was pulled Tuesday evening. There are big numbers when it comes to who would lose their insurance and even bigger numbers when it comes to how much more the state of CT would have to pay, if the Senate Republican health care plan becomes law.

The current makeup of the U.S. Senate includes 52 Republicans, 46 Democrats, and two independents (both of whom caucus with the Democrats).

But McConnell is finding it hard to satisfy demands from his diverse caucus. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT), for example, would like the bill to place more emphasis on allowing individuals to build tax-free health savings accounts (HSAs). Sen.

The Senate Republican bill would reduce spending on Medicaid by $772 billion, lowering state payments until 2025, when the deepest cuts are slated to take effect, according to a cost estimate by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

Paul said President Trump and other conservative Republican lawmakers promised in rally after rally past year that if elected, Republicans would repeal ObamaCare.

But Trump also conceded the possibility that the health bill wouldn't pass. As Bloomberg's Francis Wilkinson points out, the BCRA "will transfer hundreds of millions of dollars from poor and middle-class people, in the form of health care, to rich people in the form of tax cuts". Remember how Obamacare set up health care exchanges in some states, including CT to help people get insurance.
