Expert is 'pretty dubious' about a bipartisan solution to health care

Oregon would lose about $13 billion in federal funding by 2016 under the Cassidy Graham bill according to a study by Avalere

"I'm leaning against the bill", she said in Portland, Maine. "Maybe there will be a surprise in there", she said. John McCain (R-AZ) to oppose a last-ditch GOP proposal to overhaul the Obama health law, Republicans have nearly run out of time to make substantive changes to Obamacare by a September 30 deadline for action under a special expedited procedure that did not allow for a Senate filibuster, again dealing the President and GOP leaders a bitter defeat on an issue they've campaigned on for the last seven years. That date would mark the expiration of Senate Republicans' ability to pass an ACA repeal through budget reconciliation, which would bypass a filibuster from Senate Democrats. The GOP must pass the bill by September 30 otherwise it will be subject to the Senate's usual 60-vote threshold.

The latest repeal effort is being advanced by Senators Lindsay Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. National opinion surveys show that overall a majority of Americans want to keep the current law, although many Republicans do not. Rand Paul, significantly hurts the GOP's latest plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. He also voted against the last health care proposal in July, and it was speculated that Graham was hoping McCain would support this effort. We have hearings - bipartisan hearings - and then actually vote on a legislation offer - bipartisan amendments.

The office said it could not determine the bill's impact on insurance premiums or project the change in insurance coverage levels it would trigger until a later date.

He says the measure doesn't really repeal President Barack Obama's health care law because it leaves most of its tax increases intact.

"I can not in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. Money direct to States!" Rand Paul of Kentucky - who's said he'll oppose the latest Republican bill because it doesn't abolish enough of the Affordable Care Act.

"I have some initial concerns, and will continue to research the legislation and listen to my constituents on the best approach to health care reform in this country", Faso said Wednesday. His opposition has caused frustration among GOP colleagues and drawn the ire of President Donald Trump, who said those who goes against the party line will be known as "the Republican who saved Obamacare".

What a difference a year makes for Arsenal and Chelsea
Arsenal will be resting quite a lot of players for this fixture as they have a big game coming up against Chelsea on Sunday. Despite this, Cologne fans were clearly visible in home sections all around the stadium ahead of the rescheduled kick-off.

Collins' concerns over Graham-Cassidy have ranged across a host of issues, including the way the bill would end Obamacare subsidies and Medicaid expansion, and instead give states a set amount of funding through block grants.

Here's what Trump's tweeted about Paul: "I think he may find a way to get there for the good of the Party!"

Now Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has added himself into the opposing column alongside Paul. That defeat had been seen by many as the end of a seven-year campaign pledge by many Republicans to repeal Obamacare. And before this latest proposal, he had indicated that he was willing to work with Republicans on a health care plan.

"The legislation that we passed was full of things that still need to be fixed; it wasn't flawless, but it was better".

"It is aggravating", Obama said.
