  • If John McCain were uninsured, his surgery could have cost $76000

This means that the vote on the healthcare bill could be even further delayed, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said that the Senate will not vote on the bill until McCain is back.

In discussing their health care plan, Republicans do not usually speak as candidly as Price about returning the nation's health care system to its pre-Obamacare period, a period marked by egregious insurance company abuses. Jeff Flake says she's met with White House officials about the campaign.

Despite personal pleas from Vice President Mike Pence and the Senate's assistant Republican leader, Texas Sen. The Virginia Democrat said he would support the nominee to replace James B. Comey, whom the president fired in May.

"The bill itself is not the entire plan", he told ABC's "This Week".

It would give consumers more responsibility for their insurance choices, a goal long held by conservatives who argue that's key to a true health care market. Meanwhile, those who earn too much to qualify for subsidies could be priced out of the market.

Now for the hard place: Even some members of Congress who understand the Medicaid concern say they can not vote for reform that would even halt expansion of the program where it is now.

Collins estimated Sunday that there are eight to 10 Republican senators with "serious concerns" about the bill.

Collins said Sunday that she saw things "very differently" from the way the administration was pitching the legislation and pointed out that the bill would lower spending on Medicaid by about three-quarters of a trillion dollars by 2026 compared to current law.

McConnell's comment was a small bit of good news in a year when Republicans have put health coverage in doubt for millions of Americans. Talks are continuing to gain the backing of those lawmakers. Sullivan said it's not clear to him yet what the effects would be in Alaska.

Even so, some of the holdouts, including John Hoeven of North Dakota and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, said last week that they need to see the CBO report as they weigh whether to support debating the bill in the full Senate.

Ohio's Rob Portman and West Virginia's Shelley Moore Capito, whose states are being ravaged by the opioid and prescription drug epidemic, successfully got $45 billion in extra money for "treatment and recovery" options related to the national crisis. But Ryan has informed the House to expect immediate consideration if the Senate can find the votes.

Lee said last week he's still reviewing it but is unhappy that it's different than what he proposed. (That's a riff on "cornhusker kickback", a deal offered to a Nebraska senator back in 2009, to win his support for President Obama's health care bill.) Other names were also in circulation: Klondike kickback, polar payoff.

Senator Susan Collins (ME) has repeatedly voiced disapproval with the bill, particularly over its Medicaid cuts, and is is a no.

Doctors ordered a week of rest, the statement from McCain's office said.

The Avalere study projected marked reductions in federal Medicaid funding to all 50 states, ranging from 27 percent to 39 percent by 2036. He promised that the measure would restore Medicaid to its original purposes of helping the poor and disabled while giving states the flexibility to administer it properly.

"The only way we'll get there is with continued hard work, and that's just what we intend to do", McConnell said, signaling that days of bargaining and persuasion with reluctant colleagues lay ahead.

Paul's objection is that the BCRA does not go far enough in eliminating Obamacare's mandates, while Collins is anxious about the plan to phase out Medicaid expansion, which the BCRA would do over a seven-year period.

"And then there's what I'm referring to as a safety valve for states with extremely high premiums", Sullivan said.
