CBO Set to Release Analysis of Senate Healthcare Bill Monday

He spent much of his medical career working for Louisiana's charity hospital system, and he has said he has problems with the bill that won House passage in May and that was the building block for the Senate legislation unveiled Thursday (June 22).

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said on Sunday she has extreme reservations about the U.S. Senate's healthcare overhaul and does not think it will be able to pass this week.

In the Sunday interview, Trump said, "I want to see a bill with heart".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, has a challenging road ahead as he faces trying to bridge the divide between conservatives who want a more robust repeal of Obamacare and moderates who are wary about phasing out Obamacare's Medicaid expansion. Ben Sasse (R-NE), whose vote Republican leaders absolutely need if they hope to pass a health care bill in the Senate this week, told a gathering of conservative donors on Sunday that the bill does not really repeal Obamacare - but instead mostly concerns a government program that provides health coverage to the poor.

Speaking to "Fox & Friends", Trump claimed that former President Barack Obama only called the draft bill "mean" because he did it first.

"Johnson - who on Sunday said he is "not a yes yet" on the bill - noted that the goals of healthcare reform should be to restrain costs "while improving quality, access and innovation".

But Democrats can never be complicit in a wholesale repeal of Obamacare that would take health coverage away from millions of Americans. "And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, can not change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation". Meanwhile, the Senate's number two Republican says the Senate is on pace to hold a key procedural vote on Wednesday.

Collins said based on what she knows about the inflation rate, she expects the Senate bill to make even deeper Medicaid cuts than the House bill passed earlier this year.

But Johnson did not say whether, if forced to vote on the bill, he would vote "no". Charles Schumer of NY and Elizabeth Warren of MA as "obstructionists". Tax cuts under the House bill would total $765 billion over 10 years, with most of the benefits flowing to people earning more than $250,000 a year. "Every moment Obamacare survives is another day America suffers", Pence posted on his personal Twitter account about his remarks to a gathering of the Republican National Committee at a downtown hotel.

That the Koch network quickly panned the Senate bill is no surprise. I actually think that's better for patients.

The full impact of McConnell's bill won't be clear until the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office completes its analysis next week.

He was then asked by the Fox News reporter about Elizabeth Warren, to which Trump replied: 'I think she's a hopeless case, I call her Pocahontas and that's an insult to Pocahontas.
