Chuck Radis said the health care proposal would cause millions to lose insurance. "The American people are calling out for relief, and my administration is determined to provide it". "It's so easy, but we won't get one Democrat vote. if it was the greatest bill ever proposed in mankind, we wouldn't get a vote and that's a awful thing. their theme is resist".
Senate Republicans are expected to revise their health bill early next week, adding in a provision that could lock Americans out of the individual market for six months if they fail to maintain continuous insurance coverage.
In his address, Trump went on to call for congressional Democrats to muster the political courage to support the measure, "instead of obstructing, always obstructing change".
"Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor", Sens. They'd like to get certain changes. Both our senators are included in the elite 13 GOP senators working in complete secrecy to produce this bill.
Under Obamacare, about 20 million more people have been enrolled in insurance plans, many of them under the government's Medicaid program for the poor and disabled, which Republicans now want to cut by more than $800 billion over the coming years even though Trump during his campaign for the White House said he would not curtail it. The bill proposes phasing out federal funding to states that had been used to expand the program under the Obama administration.
We sure hope he changes his mind as he learns more about the bill.
"I have to start off by, I guess first congratulating all of the millionaires on the incredible gift that they're about to get", Danielson said. "It's hard for me to see the bill passing this week".

If he winds up voting for the newly released Senate version, which largely mimics the hugely unpopular House bill despite prior assurances from Cassidy and some of his peers that it wouldn't, I suspect the answer will be yes. The bill would also bar using tax credits to buy coverage that includes abortions.
"If they do to Medicaid what they're trying to do, it's not just a health care adverse outcome, we will be a different country, we'll be a different society, because we won't be taking care of people that most of us believe we should take care of", Casey told reporters in the Pennsylvania Capitol after he led a rally against the bill. They said the measure missed delivering a GOP promise to Americans "to repeal Obamacare and lower their health care costs".
"No one knows the Senate better that Senator McConnell", White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Friday on Fox News Channel's "America's Newsroom". Premiums and deductibles were so high that many healthy people chose to pay the penalty to save money or invested in cheaper alternatives, such as health care sharing ministries.
McConnell wants to push the package through the Senate next week, and will succeed if he can limit defections to two of the chamber's 52 Republicans.
"It would be so great if the Democrats and Republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it and come up with something that everybody's happy with", the USA president said.
Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer appears at a press conference with a sign that he had personally edited to read "Mean-er" after Senate Republicans unveiled their version of legislation that would replace Obamacare on Capitol Hill in Washington, US, June 22, 2017. So there is well look their theme is resist.
