Leader praises revived GOP health law repeal drive


However, as Rubin argues, the bill's "few restrictions on how states reconstitute their own system" indicate that the bill "doesn't remotely pass" the Jimmy Kimmel Test. Lindsey Graham of SC and Louisiana's Bill Cassidy - are still hunting for the 50 GOP votes they'd need to prevail over solid Democratic opposition.

"We have no real competition", Portman says."We have 42 of our 88 counties only have one insurer now, which is not competition".

He added: "I hope Republican Senators will vote for Graham-Cassidy and fulfill their promise to Repeal & Replace ObamaCare". The bill would also place a federal spending cap on Medicaid, which is jointly funded by the states and feds, for the first time.

By contrast, President Donald Trump is urging Republicans to get behind the latest GOP effort to repeal Obamacare, which has been drafted by senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy.

"Not only did Bill Cassidy fail the Jimmy Kimmel test, he failed the Bill Cassidy test". "Going back to this Trumpcare 2, Graham-Cassidy, would shut down that bipartisanship that Americans yearns for". "I think the price will actually be lower". "It will cost our state over $2 billion annually while directly jeopardizing the health care of our citizens".

Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and John McCain of Arizona, the three Republicans whose "no" votes killed previous iterations of the Senate healthcare bill. The group of governor's would like input more input from them. Bill Cassidy on his show to discuss health care. "Money direct to States!"

The result: All 16 states that would get more health-care money in 2026 than under Obamacare are states that have declined to expand Medicaid, according to calculations by the health-care consulting firm Avalere.

Ten other governors - both Democrats and Republicans - in a Tuesday letter asked Senate leaders Mitch McConnell of Kentucky a Republican and Chuck Schumer of NY, a Democrat - to take a bi-partisan approach.
