PostSubject: Great: Senate immediately loses 2 Republican votes on revised Obamacare repeal bill   Sat Jul 15, 2017 4:19 am

Senate Republican leaders released a new Obamacare repeal bill Thursday that keeps some of the 2010 law’s tax hikes but further erodes its coverage mandates, allowing insurers to offer slimmer plans that could entice young and healthy Americans to sign up but raise costs for older and sicker customers.



The revised bill, though, has already lost support from the right in Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and from the center in Sen. Susan M. Collins of Maine, leaving Republicans with no extra margin for error ahead of a floor showdown next week.
A number of other senators are withholding their support and waiting to see what budget analysts say about the bill, but a defection by any of them, combined with Mr. Paul and Ms. Collins, would sink the repeal effort.
Two Republicans offered an alternative plan Thursday that would send Obamacare money to states and let them decide how to spend it, suggesting yet another option that could complicate the debate.
President Trump is pushing for a bill, saying he will be “very angry” if the Senate can’t pull it off, and leaders now say their troops face a binary choice: They can either vote for repeal or violate their 7-year-old pledge to do so.
