CBO to issue estimate of Obamacare repeal bill on Wednesday

President Donald Trump blasted congressional Democrats and “a few Republicans” over the collapse of the GOP effort

Those on the more reasonable end of the Senate GOP caucus have begun sounding the right notes, too.

At the same time, Sen.

"This second failure of Trumpcare is proof positive that the core of this bill is unworkable", Schumer said. That has almost no chance to pass, either, since it could leave millions without insurance and leave insurance markets in turmoil.

McConnell faced a difficult environment.

But President Donald Trump was not ready to give up.

The plan would repeal key elements of the healthcare law, including the individual mandate requiring all Americans to have healthcare and the employer mandate requiring businesses of a certain size to offer insurance to employees. We can henceforth trust the GOP to.do what? Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.

"We're not going to own it. I'm not going to own it", the President said. Or they can work with Democrats on a narrower measure to fix the flaws in the Affordable Care Act that both parties acknowledge. "And quite frankly, neither do I", he said. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., his party's No. 2 Senate leader. According to the news site, the proposed bill left in place Obamacare taxes on higher earners and instilled large cuts for poorer American's healthcare coverage, leaving neither party happy.

Vice President Mike Pence and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price will be "on Capitol Hill tonight working with some of our members who have had some difficulty in getting to 'yes, '" the majority leader said.

That, the CBO says, would destabilize much of the individual insurance market and set it up for an immediate death spiral of skyrocketing premiums, declining enrollment, and disappearing insurers. The Republican plans for healthcare also includes reductions in Medicaid that paid for healthcare for the disabled and the poor. Following Trump's intervention, McConnel echoed comments he'd made the day before, saying that he would ask the Senate to vote to repeal existing laws, while proposing an alternative at a later date.

"Let down?" As if he really had some reason to expect help from the Democrats in dismantling Obama's signature legislation?

The Washington Post/ABC News poll, released on Monday, shows 50 percent prefer Obamacare while only 24 percent prefer the Republican health plan, also called Trumpcare.

"It was a lie, directly from the president", Trump said.

Enacting the legislation would reportedly reduce the deficit by $473bn over the next decade.

Time to go legislatively slow once again, it seems.

On the campaign trail last year, many Republican presidential candidates pushed more market-driven solutions to Obamacare, such as allowing insurance to be sold across state lines.

Movement conservatives who have often accused McConnell of not being an aggressive enough champion of their causes do fault him.

Which bill? Who knows.
