Sanders statement on CBO review of Graham-Cassidy Bill

Congress Health Overhaul

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., speaks about the Republicans' new health care bill on Capitol Hill on September 13, 2017.

Cassidy teamed up with Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dean Heller (R-NV) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) for the bill that, according to Cassidy, repeals Obamacare and replaces it with grants that are given each year to states to help the population pay for health care, CNN reported.

Republican Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are likely to cast decisive votes on the latest GOP plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill says she is opposed to the plan...but Republican Roy Blunt says he proudly supports it, saying in a tweet that it "would provide better health care for Missourians".

Jimmy Kimmel called out Senator Bill Cassidy in a scathing monologue Tuesday, criticizing the politician for crafting and pushing a health care bill that does not ensure the kind of protections he previously promised during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Like Hogan, he said the legislation would cost his state billions of dollars.

This chart breaks down the differences. If both of them are a no, the bill will die. On Tuesday afternoon, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, and other Senate Democrats rallied with progressive groups on Capitol Hill.

"We have many provisions in there which allow states to make insurance more affordable for him, if you will, that is what helps fulfill the Jimmy Kimmel test", he said. "But they're not taking care of you - they're taking care of the people who give them money, like insurance companies, and we're all just looking at our Instagram accounts liking things while they're voting on whether people can afford to keep their children alive or not". Bill Cassidy (R-LA) have proposed. After Sept. 30, any bill to change the law would need 60 votes to pass the Senate.

While GOP leadership is still short of the votes needed to pass the legislation - introduced last week by, Sens.

Baker, a former health insurance executive, has criticized Republican plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which he says will hurt MA. The cuts would grow dramatically in 2027, when the bill's temporary block grant (which would replace the ACA's Medicaid expansion and marketplace subsidies) would expire and its Medicaid per capita cap cuts would become increasingly severe.

"I don't think that government coming in and regulating doctors, nurses and hospitals like they were a utility is the answer".
