May 12, 2017 - Sinator Ted Cruz Spearheads another Obamacare Repeal and Replace Bill. HUH?? Cruz??
Mitch McConnell put the Senate Obamacare Repeal and Replace Bill in the leadership of Ted Cruz. McConnell appointed a GOP Working Group led by Cruz to write a Repeal and Replace Bill. This process bypasses the Senate Committees. This new Senate Bill will go directly to the Senate floor for a vote.
Ted Cruz Spearheads Senate healthcare bill
House didnt repeal ObamaCare, it endorsed it
ObamaCare is a stool with 4 problematic legs. The constitutional leg is the premise that the federal government has the lawful power to regulate the delivery of health care. The legal leg is the premise that the federal government is obliged to provide health insurance to everyone in America. The economic leg commands that everyone in the U.S. purchase and maintain health insurance. And the Orwellian leg says that every physician in the U.S. shall retain all patient records digitally and that federal bureaucrats shall have access to all those records. None of that is changed in the House-passed bill.
Senate health care reform bill
May 12, 2017 - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will have to balance competing interests.
Republicans enjoy a 52-seat majority in the Senate, meaning that McConnell could lose 2 votes and still let VP Mike Pence break the tie and pass the bill. McConnell convened a working group of 13 senators to write a Senate health care bill, rather than taking up the House AHCA bill.
Senator Lamar Alexander is the chairman of the Senate Health Committee and runs a working group to devise the Senate version of the healthcare bill.
