Trump lays blame as US health care reform bid collapses

The report from Congress' nonpartisan budget analyst says the measure would cause average premiums for people buying their own health insurance to double by 2026.

The Center for American Progress estimated that the Senate bill's replacement version released last month would result in 18,100 to 27,700 additional deaths in 2026.

To avoid confusion and exhaustion in the Trump era, I've argued for drawing a simple line: When Trump advocates and enacts policies that you disagree with, it's appropriate to express disagreement, tempered with the acknowledgment that this is the right of an elected president, especially one whose party controls both houses of Congress. The attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act is and was a perfect example. By losing, GOP leaders would send a message to conservative voters that they tried to obliterate the law, while signaling to Republican senators that the votes aren't there and it is time to move on. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., has said he opposes the Better Care Reconciliation Act. He didn't barnstorm the country selling the deal or hold many White House meetings to press wavering senators to get on board.

The Club for Growth, a small-government, anti-tax group with its roots in the supply-side economic philosophy of the Reagan era, accused Republicans of "hiding behind President Obama's veto".

A bipartisan group of 11 governors says Senate Republicans should abandon the effort to repeal the Obama health care law and replace it later.

For now, anyway. The next big thing to watch is what happens in late August. That's where most of the previously uninsured gained coverage.

Heller reacted with a surprised expression that turned to a smile as the President explained how he knows the people of Heller's state "really well" and said he's sure they will "appreciate" what Heller will "hopefully do" with Obamacare. Other budgetary effects would increase the deficit by $210 billion.

"We still do have work to do to get to a vote of 50, but people are committed to continuing that work", said Sen. That would affect some of the most vulnerable people in our society, including disabled children, poor seniors.

That's not a good enough for Republican voters, crucial in midterm elections, who repeatedly were promised health care repeal for seven years, according to Republican pollster Frank Luntz, who called this week's health care failure "tremendously significant".

"I have seen no other issue bring the retail industry closer together than this one", said Brian Dodge, spokesman for the association.

Holding paper replicas of tombstones, they lay down on the plaza in front of the building to silently protest Republican efforts in Congress to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

The event poked at Rep. Jim Banks, R-3rd, for voting in favor of repeal-and-replace legislation that passed the House in May. That's two more than Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had to spare in the face of a wall of Democratic opposition.

I found many of Paul's arguments and complaints entirely persuasive on the merits.

And with Senator John McCain home in Arizona through this week and perhaps longer as he recovers from surgery to remove a blood clot, the room for maneuver is even narrower.

But findings from the draft report drew immediate criticism from health policy experts as opaque and misleading. The point is that Republicans campaigned and won on a promise to do something, and when they had the chance to keep their word they didn't, or couldn't because they had spent more time talking than on crafting a mutually acceptable alternative. "We have 14 repeals of regulations".
