The Latest GOP Health-Care Scheme Fulfills an Old Conservative Dream

Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy propose replacing the 2010 Affordable Care Act, known informally as Obamacare, with a plan to give US states money in the form of block grants to run their own healthcare programs.

McMaster confirmed he has had several conversations with Graham and Vice President Mike Pence along with "a few others". First and foremast, analysis are showing us that as many thirty-two million people could lose their health insurance under this particular Republican version of the healthcare bill, effectively making it the most cruel version of healthcare reform that Republicans have proposed to date. Because Republicans obviously aren't getting 60 votes since Democrats universally oppose a repeal of Obamacare.

Further, the individual and employer insurance mandate would be eliminated, with potentially catastrophic consequences on the individual and group health insurance markets. Without a CBO score, it remains unclear what the official estimate of the loss would be for Graham-Cassidy. Dean Heller (R-NV), and Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, one of the most vocal critics of the lack of transparency during Congress' initial attempt to scrap the Affordable Care Act (ACA). But a number of Republican senators have yet to get on board, including the three who defeated McConnell's plan - Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John McCain of Arizona.

The hard-hitting South African was the first player in six matches to take a set off Carreno Busta in the tournament. After upsetting Roger Federer in the quarter-final, Del Potro was looking to engineer a repeat of 2009.

The liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, for example, complains that "Cassidy-Graham would ... allow states to spend their federal block grant on virtually any health care objective, not just for health coverage".

Because the Graham-Cassidy plan has no Democratic support, Republicans have only until September 30 to push it through the Senate before rules expire that allow it to be passed with 50 senators plus Vice President Mike Pence's tiebreaking vote.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) said that if the bill gets the support of 50 of 52 Republican senators, he can bring it to the floor. It said the cuts would grow more severe in 2027, when the block grants would expire and Medicaid per capita cap cuts would notch down spending. "But again, this is a very serious question, and I'm studying it very closely". On Monday, he collected another Republican endorsement, from Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey.

David Johnson suffers dislocated wrist, likely to require surgery
The injury will test the depth of the team on the offensive line. "I have all the confidence (in other backs)". He said Johnson is now seeking a second opinion on the injury before deciding whether to undergo surgery.

Graham said during a press conference last week such endorsements from Republican Party leaders are critical to the bill's success.

Democrats don't have much power in government these days, but that hasn't stopped them from coming up with grand plans for the future.

What happens if these Republican senators fail?

McMaster, then the state's lieutenant governor, had endorsed Graham for president during the 2016 GOP primary campaign, before Graham dropped out in late 2015 and McMaster went on to become one of President Donald Trump's most ardent supporters. Graham went on Breitbart Radio this past weekend to brag about how his plan was "Bernie Sanders' worst nightmare", and to urge listeners to call their reps and badger them to hold a vote on repealing Obamacare. Earlier Monday, she told a CNN reporter she was undecided. "People are coming out and saying they are for it, either publicly or privately". "So I want to measure twice and cut once". "Less-healthy people would face extremely high premiums" in states that obtained waivers involving both benefits and premiums, the Congressional Budget Office said in analyzing a similar provision of the bill passed by the House. "I want to be sure that what I do is the best thing for them for the future".
