Here's the CBO Score on Obamacare Repeal
"The Senate has failed the American people and abandoned voters who were promised that they would repeal and replace the disastrous Obamacare", Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Fla.), a senior deputy House majority whip, said in an extraordinary five-paragraph statement. FreedomWorks, which spent part of Wednesday handing awards to conservative members of Congress, said it was encouraging grass-roots phone calls to Capito and Portman; there was no evidence that this was drowning out the calls against the bill.
To get to a vote on the BCRA, the Senate must first vote on what's called a "motion to proceed". However, the bill did include in its analysis the $70 billion required to pay for the amendment.
McConnell indicated he was prepared to stick a fork in the Republican bill and move on to other issues including overhauling the tax code. Key Republicans such as Sen. And the uncertainty would foment chaos in the health care world. "I don't know", said Sen.
At least two GOP senators, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah, insisted on outright repeal.

"It's feeling a little bizarre like a bidding war right now", Corker said. "We're close, very close". It starts to look as if a number of the oath-takers had their fingers crossed behind their backs. Moderates thought the bill's cuts to Medicaid and the potential for massive coverage losses under the BCRA went too far.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell summed up the problem when he said "we just simply do not have 50 senators who can agree on what ought to replace the existing law". They can do that. Insurance is designed to cover risk, not certainty. He said: "It will be a lot easier". He's delivering a threat to Heller. "We have a couple days left".
Interviewing for the CNN poll conducted by SSRS was completed July 14-18 among a random national sample of 1,019 adults. But she didn't provide details.
Trump, in his own reckoning, already tried the carrot approach with senators.
But that vote will be on a resurrected bill to repeal Obamacare without a replacement at the ready.
"Obviously it's more challenging", Hoeven said. Nor do we realize the true cost and reality of insurance coverage. According to the report that reduction is the net result of a $903 billion decrease in direct spending partly offset by a $483 billion decrease in revenues. The margin of sampling error for the full sample is plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
The repeal bill would immediately end the requirement that most people pay a penalty for not having insurance, and would later end enhanced federal funding for Medicaid.
During almost a decade of writing sporadically about health care in its various iterations, I've interviewed dozens of people from a mix of related fields - medical, business, legislative and political.
In places like Alaska, West Virginia, or other specific counties within states where the populations are small and/or sparse - "access to care will be limited, insurance premiums in the individual market could increase at unaffordable rates and that would probably be defined as failure". The leadership went to Republicans because Richard Cheney was Vice President and could cast the deciding vote. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, which would allow insurers to sell minimal plans with limited benefits and lower premiums. Amid huge blowback, the group pulled its ads after just 12 hours. Once Republicans capitulate to the reality that the ACA is here to stay, there's no reason not to make sure that the largest share of eligible beneficiaries know to sign up.
