Dems say they'll slow Senate work over secretive care bill

Dems say they'll slow Senate work over secretive care bill

In Ohio, a chapter of Indivisible, an anti-Trump resistance group, will bus dozens of people to Washington, DC, on Tuesday.

The ad campaign specifically targets; Sens.

The health care industry killed Hillarycare in the 1990s and cut deals to shape Obamacare more to its liking in 2009.

"We'll be in his public space, making a demand, and he'll be stuck with us", Neiman said. There was a recent slide-show briefing for GOP members, but one senator said the slides were flashed across screens so quickly "that they can hardly be committed to memory".

Three GOP aides said Monday their offices have yet to see a draft of the bill, which was sent to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office for review last week.

The senators targeted in the ads have expressed some reservations about the emerging Senate legislation or the process and timeline with which GOP leaders are crafting it. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and a small clutch of aides are writing the bill behind closed doors as McConnell consults GOP senators.

If Senate Republicans plan to win moderate votes by spending more on health insurance subsidies and by delaying the phase-out of Medicaid expansion under the PPACA, they will need to find a way to pay for it, The Hill points out. That was people who were frustrated and upset, and they took to the streets, and that has continued.

AG Rosenstein sees no reason to fire Mueller
If Mueller knew he was going to be named special counsel, it is unlikely he divulged that information to Trump. Rosenstein says the attorney general would be the only one who could fire Mueller.

But now, with the American Health Care Act, Republicans are doing exactly that. "That was definitely not a town hall".

Democrats have begun to use the line in fundraising emails and will soon roll out ads featuring the comment to try and capitalize on backlash on the deeply unpopular American Health Care Act.

Senate Republicans have steadfastly refused to publicly discuss the details of their bill, which some hope to ram through the upper chamber before they leave for the 4th of July recess.

Republicans have held no committee meetings or votes on the measure, which McConnell is trying to produce from numerous private meetings among GOP senators. What they discovered is not surprising if you've been following the debate over Obamacare for the last 7 years. Doctors and hospitals, on the other hand, could face a surge in uninsured patients if millions fewer Americans have health coverage.

"Congress is moving fast to rush through a health care overhaul that lacks a key ingredient: the full participation of you, the American people", Ryan wrote in an op-ed in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2009.

By the way, those numbers come from the notoriously unreliable Congressional Budget Office. The protest, planned by (I-Vermont) Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV). Jim Risch, R-Idaho, left, and Sen.

The summer recess, set to run from July 29 through September 5, will be an important opportunity for opponents of President Trump and GOP policies - what has come to be known colloquially as "the resistance" - to render their dissatisfaction in person to Republican lawmakers at town halls, office hours and other in-district events.
