Paul Suggests Passing Healthcare Like Henry Clay's Compromise of 1850

Paul Suggests Passing Healthcare Like Henry Clay's Compromise of 1850

"Americans aren't buying this latest version of the plan to kill Obamacare", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Overall, a 46 percent plurality said they would be less likely to vote for their member of Congress or senator if they voted in favor of the GOP legislation; 17 percent said it would make them more likely to support the incumbent and 33 percent said a lawmaker's position on healthcare would not change how they feel about them.

But it's far from a sure thing, and President Donald Trump, whose threats and cajoling helped push the House bill over the finish line, doesn't have the same sort of influence over the Senate. "I think we're doing it in a better process where we're going to try and harmonize what the White House wants, what the Senate wants, what the House wants, so it's not quite such a ping-pong operation".

"Obviously we'd like to get rid of all" Obama's tax boosts, No. 3 Senate GOP leader John Thune of South Dakota told reporters of possibly retaining the extra 3.8 percent investment tax. And that's OK, and I understand that very well.

The House went through its own struggles with its version of the bill, pulling it from the floor short of votes before reviving it and narrowly passing it in May. Among the Republicans, 44% abstained from taking a position due to lack of information.

Senator Susan Collins of ME, one of the most moderate Senators in the GOP conference, says that she can not support the bill in its current form. Do not stand for a bill that strips seniors of their right to health care. Rounds said the tax could pay for more Americans to receive the tax credits that help pay for health insurance. Kasich said of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimate that the bill would lead to 22 million more people - the equivalent of the population of 16 states - uninsured over the next decade. So it's possible that the Senate Republicans can rise from this week's setback.




Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell announced the delay Tuesday after it became clear the votes weren't there to advance the legislation past key procedural hurdles. The Senate, as always, moves more cautiously. But it would still represent a small fraction of the money that repealing Obamacare would drain from federal health programs. "And tax reform is hard enough if it's bipartisan".

But other Republican senators are aligned with "a couple of coalitions" that are more policy-oriented, he said, describing the two groups as "principled conservatives" and "Medicaid moderates".

Washington politicians now head home for a week of Fourth of July parades and constituent meetings.

CBS ran the clip of Trump saying that even if the GOP came up with the "greatest bill ever proposed" they still would not get any Democratic support.

The Senate Republicans' plan to overhaul the USA healthcare system could have a big impact on the healthcare funding that states receive.
