Lindsey Graham Defends John McCain After He Got Roasted In Trump Tweet

Lindsey Graham Defends John McCain After He Got Roasted In Trump Tweet

McConnell said the Senate majority has still not given up on "changing the American health care system".

Graham said, "We're on path to pass Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson". Collins, of ME, told reporters that she made her decision despite a phone call from Trump, who's been futilely trying to press unhappy GOP senators to back the measure.

The Senators behind Graham-Cassidy issued a statement warning that it is not a matter if their deadly legislation replaces Obamacare, but when it will replace Obamacare. The public opposition from three Republican senators _ John McCain of Arizona, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Susan Collins of ME _ had doomed that bill to defeat.

Limited government leaders in Washington, D.C. are pleading with U.S. Senators Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas - urging them to support a watered-down Obamacare repeal bill as a first step toward getting rid of this job-killing, socialized medicine monstrosity.

Republicans were facing a September 30 deadline to be able to pass a repeal bill by a simple majority.

While announcing the demise of the current bill, Republican leaders vowed that they will come back to healthcare once they complete tax overhaul, a task made more hard by their inability to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

Ducey said, "Graham-Cassidy is the best path forward to repeal and replace Obamacare..." "I want to read it, I haven't had a chance to do that yet, but we want to have a vote before Wednesday".

At an event in Louisville Monday, Republican Sen.

But the 2018 budget is already being eyed to push through a tax reform package, and some Republicans were wary of loading it down with several big lifts.

House and Senate Republicans appeared deeply frustrated over their inability, as the majority in Congress, to fulfill their longtime campaign promise to end President Barack Obama's signature health care law.

Toomey called the federally mandated Obamacare a "one-size-fits-all" policy, a term oft repeated by Republican legislators when arguing that the ACA has given individuals and families fewer options for health coverage. "We go and we do reform that's common sense, and we don't care about the politics". Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and South Carolina's Lindsey Graham.

The deal would have given block grants to states to allow them to craft their own unique plan to administer a federally backed health care plan.

"[Trump] made that clear that if he didn't get what he wanted, he was going to work with Democrats on a plan", Democratic Rep. Richard Neal of MA said after the meeting.

With that said, Murray called on the HELP Committee to "pick back up right where we left off and let's do it right now". The Trump voters and many other Americans will look at this display of obstructionism caused by McConnell and the three or four Republican senators as something that will affect their lives for the worse, because they know that when Obamacare fails, millions of Americans will no longer have health insurance. The Republican statement demonstrates that the GOP is on a mission to destroy the United States healthcare system.
