Senate GOP's health repeal ditched again

Why is health care in the US so expensive

This is a mere formality, but a nice one: Republican leaders have announced that there will be no voted on the Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill, which would likely have resulted in millions of Americans losing their health insurance. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), coauthor of the bill along with Lindsey Graham (R-SC), said on Tuesday that Republicans did not have the votes, adding that he was "absolutely" disappointed in the outcome.

A decision on the Graham-Cassidy Senate healthcare bill was made before there was even a vote cast. Bill Cassidy, of Louisiana and Lindsey Graham, of SC.

On Monday, Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced that she would not support the bill, saying that it was "deeply flawed". John Kennedy, R-La., leaving a luncheon where GOP senators decided against holding a futile roll call.

A last-ditch effort by the White House and Republican leadership to repeal Obamacare by a looming September 30 deadline might well have been killed by U.S. Sen. Collins stated that she could not support the health care proposal until it received a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score, which it would not have before the reconciliation deadline.

Earlier that day, President Donald Trump reportedly signaled during a bipartisan meeting at the White House that he would collaborate with Democratic lawmakers on health care if Senate Republicans were unable to repeal the ACA with Graham-Cassidy.

"With a process that gets more attention and time, we will repeal Obamacare", Graham said Tuesday. But the same surveys have also shown that Republican voters, especially the conservatives who disproportionately vote in primaries, want their representatives to push ahead on repeal. "We plan to move forward on our next priority which is reforming the American tax code in a significant way for the first time in 30 years".

At the same time he was on trial for Lloyd's murder, Hernandez was indicted in a double-homicide that occurred in 2012. The discovery was made following an autopsy of Hernandez following his suicide in April.

"Everybody knows that's going to fail", said Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin G Hatch, who led a five-hour hearing on the bill on Monday afternoon. Over the last few days, a handful of Republicans came out against the proposal, including U.S. Sens.

"We haven't given up on changing the American health care system", Sen.

Sen. Ron Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, said Tuesday it sounds like GOP leadership might have already ruled out fusing the two issues in the 2018 budget, but that he'd still like to try to include health care. Bill Cassidy, R-Louisiana, one of the co-authors of the bill, at a press conference following a closed-door Senate GOP Conference lunch.

The decision marked the latest stinging rejection on the issue for President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
