Senate Republicans reluctant to rush vote on healthcare bill

Another senator who has announced that he does not support the current version of the bill, Rand Paul of Kentucky, said he would back it if the Senate reached an impasse on healthcare.

"As I have consistently stated, if the bill is good for Nevada, I'll vote for it and if it's not - I won't", Heller said.

The debate underscores the partisan divide in overhauling ObamaCare - former President Barack Obama's signature, 2010 health care law that extends health coverage to millions more Americans but has also struggled with rising premium costs and fewer premium options. We must contact our Senators immediately and let them know of our opposition.

The president said he thinks Republicans in the Senate are doing enough to push through the bill.

The Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017, which was released by Republicans in the U.S. Senate on Thursday, would significantly cut federal funding for the low-income Medicaid program.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said senior police officials were at the sannidhanam as part of the investigation. The Travancore Devasom Board, which manages the affairs of the temple, said the mast has suffered serious damage.

Back in May, the House narrowly passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA).

- Gives each state a fixed amount of Medicaid funding, forcing states to make cuts when money runs out.

Those waivers would allow state to drop benefits required by Obamacare, such as maternity coverage, mental health care and prescription drug coverage.

"Policies contained in the discussion draft will repeal the individual mandate so Americans are no longer forced to buy insurance they don't need or can't afford", McConnell said.

He called the Senate's bill "not a health care bill" but a "massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America". He added that Nevada "is one of the most improved states in the country" in expanding coverage.

Ernst declined to comment on any other provisions during a news conference at the Iowa Capitol, saying, "We have 142 pages to go through".

Trump will lead the effort to try to convince reluctant Republicans to support the bill. They say the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, needs fixing not replacing. But I think we're going to get there.

"Certainly in Iowa, we've been impacted and affected by what the state has done", he said, "in terms of attempting to privatize the Medicaid program".

The Congressional Budget Office is expected to release its score of the bill early next week, estimating how many millions of Americans stand to lose their insurance. In fact, the cuts to Medicaid are even worse than in the AHCA.
