There's No 'Moving On' From Health Care

Putting The Dramatic Health Care Vote In Context

But we have to get to that point first, and it unfortunately appears that's still not on the near horizon.

"It's very hard to disappoint your colleagues and I know that there's probably disappointment because it was the three votes that Sen". Now the Senate has failed.

Trump's last tweet continued: "As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal". For example, 77 percent said they were in favor of expanding Medicaid to low-income families, and 43 percent said they favored requiring US residents to own health insurance. We can not leave the American middle class swinging in the breeze.

"Today, it remains that way because of everyone who mobilized, organized and made their voices heard", Lewis explained in the statement, according to NBC's Twitter post.

Before the Affordable Care Act had even been signed into law, congressional Republicans were promising to veto it. "And the American people have gotten accustomed to it...trying to pull it back is really not going to work". "There's no moving on from here".

As expected Collins voted against the repeal, and Pence was hanging around in case he was needed.

Cruz's Consumer Freedom amendment failed in a procedural vote earlier this week, subject to an insurmountable 60-vote threshold, but is highly favored by House conservatives who say it's critical to winning their support on a final compromise bill. Equally as inspiring are the constituents who have called, emailed, and visited their Members of Congress to speak out for the millions of Americans who would lose health coverage under Trumpcare. "Alaska already struggles with the highest health care costs in the nation, and the situation would have only gotten worse with the passage of the proposed health care legislation". Several news outlets also reported that Senate Republicans still plan to include a measure to defund Planned Parenthood for one year.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), saying Trump should "stop playing politics with people's lives and health care, start leading, and finally begin acting presidential".

The ACA helped to insure 20 million Americans and gave "tens of millions more" preventive care, such as mammograms and vaccines, the statement said. "No way. If you passed it as a standalone proposition it would destroy the insurance markets and we would own the failure of Obamacare". The status quo is unsustainable.

"We have missed a vital opportunity to provide relief from a flawed law on the verge of collapse".

Some people are better off with Obamacare, but for the majority of my constituents, that is simply not the case.

"I don't understand why they had to push for health care reform before tax reform", he said.
