Three Republican senators oppose GOP Obamacare repeal

Democracy Now!

Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader (R) Kentucky. So here's what happened in the last just 24 hours. "I believe it's bad for our country", he said.

ALISON KODJAK, BYLINE: Hi, Robert.

"We're not going to own it, I'm not going to own it", Trump said Monday after the Senate indicated it could not pass a healthcare plan. "Let Obamacare fail", he said. Any "replacement" bill that exchanges one federal program for another is not the right direction.

"ObamaCare has failed, and ObamaCare must go", he said. "All they want to do is obstruct government and obstruct, period". Health care was a top issue, according to those at the meeting.

A group of 11 governors - both Republicans and Democrats - has called on the Senate to "immediately reject" repeal-only efforts.

Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Alabama, expressed frustration at this own Republican colleagues. And then more people might drop out. It was a great plan for a lot of people. You can see that. If Murkowski remains a no, it's not clear it will pass. They've been refusing to say whether they're going to enforce this individual mandate.

"To Missouri families and businesses, healthcare isn't a political game", says McCaskill.

"My suspicion is there'll be hearings on the crisis that we have", he said. He runs the state's insurance marketplace under Obamacare. And why are premiums rising? "It may not be as quick as we had hoped, but it's going to happen". Indeed, 40 percent of that money will go to households with incomes greater than $1 million per year. No one raised their hand.

McIntosh also acknowledged the latest proposal would leave several existing regulations in place and is "short of perfection".

Further, Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas tells NPR's Susan Davis, there are probably "five or six" Republicans in total who are against the motion. "I don't think anybody really thinks that this meeting was advisable", Christie said.

Even this vampiric motherfucker couldn't revive the vampire bill. But right now nothing changes. Kindred Healthcare (NYSE: KND), the largest home health provider, did buck that trend; its shares were up 0.67% as of market close. There are other, more subtle ways the exchanges could run into trouble.

Senate Republicans are scrambling to pick up the pieces after their attempt to repeal and replace the Obama-era health care law collapsed a second time.

And if support isn't there? But that effort also hit a wall Tuesday when three Republican Senators said they wouldn't support that effort.

Even many leading Republican senators have voiced major concerns about repealing the current law without some replacement.
