Trump coaxing Senate health bill holdouts to get in line

He said senators "don't have enough information" to vote on the bill.

McConnell unveiled the bill, which had been crafted behind closed doors, on Thursday and is aiming for a vote before the Senate recesses for the July 4 holiday break.

The Trump-Obama debate is mirrored by lawmakers who took to the Sunday shows to discuss the health care imbroglio, including disputes within the Republican caucus. She said Planned Parenthood funding is just one of many factors, "although a very important one", that she is considering. And I hardly see it. "The level of hostility".

At one point in the campaign, Trump called for giving Medicare the authority to directly negotiate prices with drug makers, an approach favored to some extent by Obama and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

"She's a hopeless case".

"I respectfully disagree with her analysis", Sen.

President Donald Trump is taking his obligatory swipes at Democrats opposing the Senate health care bill, but balking Republicans are the ones who can expect to feel the most heat. The Senate now has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats. "I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out".

If the Senate approves its repeal version, either the House would have to pass the same bill or reconcile its version with the Senate's before Trump could sign it into law.

"Well he used my term, 'mean.' That was my term because I want to see - and I speak from the heart - that's what I want to see". "Healthcare's a very complicated subject from the standpoint that you move it this way, and this group doesn't like it".

Imagine you are negotiating with two creditors who say you owe them $1,000 and you insist you owe nothing.

McConnell has said he was willing to make changes to win support, and in the week ahead, plenty of backroom bargaining is expected.

But Johnson did not say whether, if forced to vote on the bill, he would vote "no". "They're not going to go down after the Republican bill".

But, he wrote, those in Washington think "more money" can solve every problem.

Collins says another seven to eight senators including herself remain troubled about the possible Medicaid cuts.

"Threading that needle is going to be very, extremely hard", she said.

Cornyn made the comments Sunday at a private gathering hosted by the libertarian Koch brothers in Colorado.

Indian diaspora showers praise on PM Modi
They will then have a working dinner, the first time Trump has played host to a foreign dignitary at a White House dinner. Indian envoy to the US Navtej Sarna has termed Modi's visit a "great opportunity for the two leaders to know each other".

"We're trying to hold him back a little bit", Cornyn said with a smile.

And the congressional plans are likely to increase the number of uninsured people, because even if all Americans have access to coverage, some may no longer be able to afford it. It also would end tax penalties on people who don't buy insurance policies and on larger businesses that don't offer coverage to workers, while phasing out the extra money given to states that expanded their Medicaid programs to offer insurance to the working poor.

Paul said he could get to a yes, if the bill went farther to repeal ObamaCare rules that drive up premiums.

"I can not imagine that these very fine Republican senators would allow the American people to suffer a broken Obamacare any longer!" the president tweeted Saturday.

Trump said he thought Republicans in the US Senate were doing enough to push through the bill and criticised Democrats for their opposition.

"I don't think we're that far off". "Famous last words right?" It might not get things done in the timeline the president wants it, but sometimes, to steal and modify a line from ex-Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington, "That's the way politics go". "We don't have too much of a choice, because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare".

He urged Republicans to work with Democrats by "stop sabotaging Obamacare" and giving up the effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act. "I think we're going to get there". Johnson spoke on NBC's "Meet the Press".

Trump May Face Lawsuit For "Unprecedented Constitutional Violations"
Racine said he felt the need to sue the president to be the check and balance that it appears Congress is unwilling to be. However, Racine and Frosh insist Trump has not kept promises to keep his public duties and business interests separate.
