Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said senators are closer to bringing up a proposal, and other Republicans have predicted for some time that a bill would be ready for a vote before the August recess. Rolling back Medicaid, no matter when it is done, could result in many near-poor people losing coverage.

Some who will help determine whether the GOP can pass a bill without any Democratic support say they're missing a chance to guide and shape it. Bill Cassidy, R-Louisiana. "And so I would like to see language".

Senator John Thune (R-SD) said that although the Senate would like to repeal all of Obamacare's taxes, they would still like to consider all of their options. Until that point, though we (and many of our elected leaders) are in the dark. Passage of that House bill, one will recall, was celebrated in the White House Rose Garden by the entire House GOP caucus.

Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa listen at right as President Donald Trump speaks in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington, Tuesday before having lunch with Republican Senators. "Pretty obviously (he's) not a details guy", said a Republican aide.

The House legislation was similarly criticized for being written behind closed doors, with even Republican lawmakers out of the loop for weeks.

The House version of the AHCA, which narrowly passed by a vote of 217-213, withdrew federal funds from Planned Parenthood. There were no hearings held about the legislation. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., accused his Senate colleagues of "trying to sneak a major bill through Congress". "They worked so hard and they worked so long". But at least have the decency, honor, a little bit of courage.

President Trump speaks at the White House after Obamacare replacement passes the House on May 4, 2017. A CBO analysis of the bill will take ten to 14 days, meaning text of legislation would have to be sent to the CBO by the end of the week.

Independent Journal Review's Haley Byrd tweeted on Monday that when asked by reporters if he would like to know more about the health care bill, Graham said "no". That would bypass the usual 60-vote threshold and keep Democrats from blocking the measure. But that's not at all how the Republican bill has unfolded.

"I think he realizes our bill is going to move probably from where the House was and he seems fine with that", Thune said. Cruz said, "There are many issues being debated in the group".

"Dozens of Republican amendments were offered and accepted in that hearing process" around the Affordable Care Act (ACA), said Senator Claire McCaskill during a hearing with Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price last week. He would also remove some of the state waiver authority on coverage and pre-existing conditions that was added to win House support from its most conservative members. "I actually think it will get even better".

"To call a bill that he pushed "mean" leaves us scratching our heads", Brat said. "That's not good. We're trying to do it from a one-party perspective because no Democrat is willing to help us". It will give the richest Americans a big tax cut by depriving lower-income, older and sick Americans of access to affordable health care.

Most GOP senators don't face re-election in 2018, making them less vulnerable to a voter backlash. That's what we're going to do. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin. A growing number of conservatives, including Sens. "Whether I condition my vote on it is not something I'm prepared to say".
