The republicans waive the right to repeal Obamacare

Lindsey Graham, R- SC and Bill Cassidy, R-Louisiana, would have reorganized how the federal government manages health care by redirecting funds from Medicaid and other subsidies from the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) into block grants that states could use for more locally based health care programs.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is defending his friend, GOP Sen.

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, who torpedoed the latest Republican plan, urged on his colleagues a bipartisan approach to fix Obamacare. Under this process, the Republicans could pass a health care bill with just 50 votes.

Paul had previously said he would oppose the bill because it did not go far enough in repealing the health law.

Due to their narrow majority and unified Democratic opposition, Republicans can lose just two GOP votes and still push the legislation through the Senate.

Several Republicans blamed defeat on the rushed and secretive process as they scrambled to meet a September 30 deadline with just one public hearing and said that a more thorough debate would produce legislation that could win support.

Graham Cassidy is structured to slash federal spending on health care, particularly the Medicaid program for low-income Americans-a program that Kasich expanded in his state under Obamacare.

On the "Rick & Bubba Show", a radio programme, Trump singled out McCain, calling his vote in July "a tremendous slap in the face of the Republican Party". "We aren't going to be able to do it this week".

Leaving a lunch of Republican senators who'd gathered to discuss their next steps on the issue, Sen.

"While the arcane rules of the reconciliation process limited our policy options and imposed an artificial deadline on our efforts, we will push on".

When asked where the health care debate heads next, Collins said she believes it's back to the drawing board.

"The Cassidy-Graham bill would have been a health care disaster, and the American people saw it", Schumer said. The Trump voters and many other Americans will look at this display of obstructionism caused by McConnell and the three or four Republican senators as something that will affect their lives for the worse, because they know that when Obamacare fails, millions of Americans will no longer have health insurance. Trump tweeted Wednesday, one day after Senate Republicans' last-ditch proposal to unwind the Affordable Care Act collapsed.

The president recently posted a 6-minute string of videos where McCain in various venues, including last year's reelection bid, said his goal was to "repeal and replace Obamacare". Representative Richard Neal (D-MA) said the president made it clear "he was going to work with Democrats on a plan" if his healthcare interests weren't met, according to CNN.

Earlier Tuesday, Trump lashed out at GOP lawmakers for deserting the measure, telling reporters, "We are disappointed in certain so-called Republicans".
