Senate Leaders Issue Last-Minute Revisions To ObamaCare 2.0

Senate GOP Health Bill To Break With House Bill On Key PointsSenate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, center, walks to his office at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Thursday, June 22, 2017. Senate Republican leaders will unveil a closely held plan to replace Obamacare on Thursday that includes a longer transition period than a House passed bill, though thereÕs no indication they have enough support for it to pass in a vote that could come as early as next week. Photographer: Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg[/caption]Senate leaders released a slightly revised version of their health-care bill Monday as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tries to win over enough holdouts to pass the measure, with at least six Republicans signaling opposition.

The most significant change is the inclusion of a new provision to encourage Americans to maintain continuous health-care coverage that would replace Obamacare’s individual mandate. The new provision would impose a six-month waiting period before new insurance goes into effect for anyone who had a break in coverage lasting 63 days or longer in the prior year. It would take effect beginning in 2019.

A number of Republican senators are still demanding a variety of changes in what is shaping up as McConnell’s toughest test as Senate majority leader.

McConnell can only afford two defections and still pass his Obamacare repeal legislation, but Republicans only saw McConnell’s draft bill for the first time Thursday. With both moderates and conservatives expressing deep concern about McConnell’s “discussion draft,” he faces a narrow path to passage.

    REPUBLICAN MONEY SHOULD BE WITHELD FROM ANY REPUBLICAN THAT IS FIGHTING TRUMP. HIS/HER FUNDS SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE PERSON RUNNING AGAINST THEM.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 AND THIS LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. IT BANS ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US, THAT INCLUDE A MUSLIMS.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

    REPEAL OBAMACARE COMPLETLY!

    Insurance across state lines just like the auto insurance.
    Leave Medicare and Medicade alone & place catastrophic care & truly preexisting under those systems.

    • Mike N

      Get federal government out of insurance period. Leave it up to the states. This should not be a Federal Government Issue.

      • Pete

        I agree that the feds should not have been in the health care business, but they have been doing it for over fifty years ( and collecting tax to pay for it). Cutting it cold turkey would be a moral disaster that would result in the reemergence of hard left at the ballot box. We would then have a worse socialistic mess than the one we are now stuck with now.

        • Mike N

          You are right, but ideally the feds would not have gotten into the health care business as well as other things not specified in the constitution such as the department of education.
