Sen. Lamar Alexander on health care fix: 'Put out the fire'

06 Agosto 2017, 08:46 | Bibiana Flor

Without an actual bill on the table, however, it's impossible to say if he's right. "It is a problem". At Tuesday's White House briefing, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders pointedly blamed lawmakers for the president's failures to deliver.

Indeed, most of the coming efforts in Congress run counter to what the White House has suggested ought to happen.

Trump said that he didn't want to waste any political capital he had with Democrats on infrastructure or tax reform, and that was the reason he chose to start pushing health care reform. As proposed, the maximum contribution would have been increased to the out-of-pocket expense limit under qualified high deductible health plans. For instance, the administration has said that it's determined to repeal the deduction for state and local income taxes, which is an especially big benefit for those in states with high taxes such as NY. (The bill lowered rates but eliminated deductions enjoyed by the wealthy.) Tax scholars at the conservative American Enterprise Institute have ideas for tax reform that would meet these criteria, too, explains James Pethokoukis. He was referring to the recently passed sanctions on Russian Federation (and their repercussions), the closest thing the 115 Congress can point to as a bipartisan legislative achievement, or any legislative achievement, and which overwhelming majorities of Congress railroaded Trump into signing. We need a return to a citizen legislature. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., a committee member.

"I think most Republican senators have their own identity that's separate from the president", said Alex Conant, a GOP strategist and former adviser to Sen. Congress was considering a border adjustment tax on goods manufactured overseas, regardless of whether they were made by an American company, but congressional Republicans and the Trump administration couldn't agree to terms.

"Distance is a tax reform's best friend". Lindsey Graham agreed. And Speaker Paul Ryan said he didn't "see that as an appropriate comment" lamenting that it did not help attempts to improve the civility of politics in Washington. After all, how many times can you listen to experts tell you that your plan would lead to 22 million fewer people having health insurance?

Gale said he was doubtful that the GOP could meet its deadline of getting a tax overhaul in place by 2017. "Now, Obamacare has made it an adversarial relationship between the employer and the employee". "There was a time when the leadership of the Congress from both parties felt an institutional loyalty that would frequently create bonds across party lines in defense of congressional prerogatives in a unified front against the White House, regardless of the president's party", he wrote. No Republican candidate will receive my vote again.

The current plan is to have the Senate work through next week, and then go home for a three week summer break - without a new Senate vote on the health care issue.

"I think he just feels that everything is going to be his way whether you like it or you don't like it, and it just doesn't work that way", says Laura Vivenzio, of Syosset. "I want to open the door and get involved".

Moderate Republicans are concerned about how Medicaid cuts and changes to Obamacare regulations, like guaranteed essential health benefits and protections for people with preexisting conditions, will affect their constituents.

With Congress due to be closed until September 5, voters may ask: What happened to repealing and replacing Obamacare?

"I'm very upset with Sen".

The announcement marks a change in strategy after the failure last week of Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare. But it was a broad overview that didn't delve into policy details or contentious issues, senators said after the meeting.

"Competition is good", Barr said. But he added that he wants clarity on whether or the party will evaluate the cost of its tax bill using a dynamic score that accounts for macroeconomic impacts or a traditional score that doesn't take those effects into consideration. "We know that Obamacare is failing".

"Instead of just focusing on killing the ACA, we're focused on how to fix it in a smart way", Gottheimer said on Monday.
