Republicans near votes to replace Obamacare

Senate Republicans pushing to replace Obamacare with state block grants are making real noise before their window to act closes, insisting they are just one or two votes shy and that President Trump can nudge their last-gasp bill to victory.

“We are thinking that we can get this done by Sept. 30,” Sen. Bill Cassidy, the Louisiana Republican who co-wrote the bill with Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, said Friday.

Republican leadership seemed to greet the bill with a shrug when it was introduced last week, yet Mr. Cassidy said the idea “took off” during a Thursday luncheon that focused on health care.

The senator said his informal whip count stands at “48 or 49” Republican votes — close to the 50-vote threshold needed to pass a bill, using Vice President Mike Pence as a tie-breaker.

Senior Democrats, meanwhile, are rallying Obamacare’s defenders to stamp out a revived threat to their signature law.

    Dump the whole ACA before coming up with something else . The first thing should be clamp down on the Insurance industry and then the drug companies .

      They don’t have the votes to do a total repeal unless at least 8 Democrats vote for it, like that’s going to happen. If the ACA did go away without a replacement in place a lot of bad things would happen without it’s protections the insurance industry would have no real controls on them and if you think they are bad now this is nothing.

        There must be a lot of Democrat pork in those 2700 pages ??? You did not read the whole thing did you as to what I said ?????

          You do know why the insurance company want it gone. It limits their profits. It keeps them from ripping people off even more then they are doing right now. They have worked with the republicans to sell you on how bad it law is but in fact the insurance companies want it gone so they can go back to dropping peoples coverage if the use the insurance and to selling policies that cover nothing. The top 1% also want it gone so they can get a tax break even if the middle class has to take a hit on their insurance. Unless you are very rich or very poor repealing the law well screw you.

          1. Retired says:

            Why are you such a pig head and change the subject ??? It is not hard to figure out the ACA was bad for everyone right from the beginning . We have already been screwed thanks to the ACA and it will continue until 2025 unless it is totally eliminated . A simple one page law could prevent insurance Companies from discriminating against prior conditions and not 2700 pages of BS plus taxes .

          2. bobnstuff says:

            Once again I worry about your memory. I guess you don’t remember how bad dealing with insurance companies was. Policies that covered nothing, people being dropped because they got sick and people who couldn’t even buy insurance because of preexisting conditions. Every year rates went up at a rate faster then even right now. There is no such thing as a one page law that does anything.

          3. Retired says:

            You are the one with the problem of always changing the subject like a good liberal does .
