Trump told senators the Obamacare repeal bill he once celebrated is 'mean'

Why House and Senate Republicans hide Trumpcare bill

However, when Anthem announced that decision, it seemed to blame the administration by citing "the lack of certainty of funding for cost sharing reduction subsidies, the restoration of taxes on fully insured coverage and an increasing lack of overall predictability" for its action. Many, in fact, are organizing against it. People across the country are planning how best to mobilize against the bill, including organizing people to call their legislators, planning sit-ins at district offices, and writing letters to editors of newspapers. Sounds a lot like complaints from Republicans when a Democrat-controlled Congress passed the Affordable Care Act containing volumes of rules and guidelines nearly no one - including Democrats - bothered to read.

There's no great mystery as to why Trump would express love for the House bill in May, and disdain for the House bill in June. Can you say it was done openly?

House Republicans passed their health care bill last month.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who built his reputation as a firebrand by taking on the GOP leadership, might have to become its ally to deliver a long-promised GOP healthcare bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.

President Trump told Republican senators Tuesday that he thinks the bill that House Republicans passed in May to repeal and replace Obamacare was "mean" - even though the president celebrated passage of the legislation with a pep-rally style event with House leaders in the Rose Garden.

Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch said, "I think we're a ways away" from an agreement. I know you're part of the discussion.

Asked if she was frustrated and whether she wishes there were hearings on the legislation, she answered: "Yes". Not that either. Anthem explained clearly what is responsible for its retreat: Republican sabotage of the health-care system.

Others say they fear senators and the public will have little time to understand a final proposal when and if it is released. "Opening it to scrutiny before a vote would be the congressional equivalent of exposing a vampire to sunlight".

Trump reportedly talked about having a bill come out of the Senate that protects people with preexisting conditions and having a tax credit that works for low income elderly Americans, according to the story originally reported by the Associated Press.

What will the Republican legislation do? Lamar Alexander, Colorado Sen.

"This should be an open and transparent process", Paul said at the time. Ryan had tried to push the bill through only 17 days after revealing the legislative text to fellow Republicans.

Additionally, according to Senate rules, the bill passed through the body has to save $133 billion, the same amount of money as the House bill.

And with good reason, because when the CBO did look at the bill, it turned out that it would have left 23 million more Americans without health coverage and would slash $834 billion in health care for the poor.

In a particularly heated exchange at a hearing last week, Democratic Sen. Hatch has held several meetings with Utahns about what they would want in the bill.

"It's going to be an unbelievable victory when we get it through the Senate", he added.
