CBO: Number of insured 'reduced by millions' under GOP health bill

Only a "significant reassessment" of the "trillion-dollar spending regime" would get his support, he said.

"That's the only way he gets to a yes", Gor said in an email.

The bill is awful, and there are no sweeteners that can convince Republicans like McCain, Murkowski, and Collins to support the bill. They said Trump and his advisers have been in regular touch with the Kentucky senator.

Eyes are also on Alaska Sen. Susan Collins of Maine told CNN's Jake Tapper that it would be "very hard for me to envision a scenario" where she would vote for the bill. One more Republican "no" vote and the legislation's future is all but over in the Senate, where Republicans only have until September 30 to overhaul the law with 51 votes, according to the Senate's parliamentarian.

He was the third Republican to vote "no", just enough to kill it.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said last week in a statement that it was his "intention" to consider Graham-Cassidy next week, but without the votes, it's unclear that Republican leaders would actually bring the bill to the floor.

Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, said on Sunday that he had not yet been won over and was seeking changes to the repeal plan. Susan Collins, would require states to demonstrate that their health-care rules meet several federal standards, including parity for mental health care, reconstructive surgery after mastectomies and minimal hospital states for newborns, among others. In an embarrassing crash, the Senate rejected three earlier versions this summer.

No. 3 Senate GOP leader John Thune of South Dakota conceded that the measure's prospects were "bleak".

Trump called the "Rick and Bubba Show," an Alabama-based talk radio program.

With the latest version of Trumpcare floundering after several Republicans announced that they can not support the legislation in its current form, Sens. Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, the repeal bill would end the ACA's Medicaid expansion, which has provided insurance to about 600,000 people in Washington.

While Republicans have pledged to repeal the Obama-era health care reforms, they have struggled to secure enough support to do so amid fears that proposed alternatives would dramatically increase the number of Americans without health insurance.

"Taken together, the per-capita caps and the envisioned block grant would constitute the largest intergovernmental transfer of financial risk from the federal government to the states in our country's history", NAMD said.

Iran's ballistic missile launch was fake
Fitzpatrick agrees it would be a good idea to extend the Iran nuclear deal to include ballistic missiles. The unveiling of the missile came during a military parade that commemorated the 1980s Iraq-Iran War.

In a late stab at attracting votes, Republicans were adding $14.5 billion to the measure including extra funds for states of dissenting GOP senators, according to documents obtained late Sunday by The Associated Press. The initial version gave the authority to the secretary of health and human services, Tom Price. It would also let states unilaterally raise limits Obama's law has placed on consumers' out-of-pocket costs.

Such changes might appeal to the conservative Cruz. One in 5 Americans polled said they approved of the bill, which was revised on Sunday after the poll was conducted.

With five legislative days remaining until the Senate GOP's reconciliation authority (allegedly) expires, Graham-Cassidy looks dead as a doornail. Testifying against the measure will be Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, who learned earlier this year that she has kidney cancer. The Congressional Budget Office will only have time to produce a partial analysis before the expected vote. Instead, the office is expected to only detail its estimates of the measure's effect on federal deficits.

According to the Washington Post, a summary of the draft that was circulating on Capitol Hill late Sunday indicated that "Alaska would get 3 percent more funding between 2020 and 2026 than under current law, and ME would get 43 percent more funding during that time period".
