The Republicans' Dilemma of the Health Care Bill

"If we aren't able to gain certainty on some of these items quickly, we do expect that we will need to revise our rate filings to further narrow our level of participation", CEO Joseph Swedish said in an earnings call.

Many Republicans hope Kelly will be a more stabilizing presence in the White House.

They said that more research is needed to determine whether existing access gains will translate into improved health outcomes and reductions in disparities, and to "monitor future trends in access disparities in a changing policy environment".

After Republicans in the Senate failed to reach an agreement on an ObamaCare repeal measure Thursday night, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Friday he was "frustrated" but indicated he was ready to move on to reforming the US tax code.

Sister Keehan described that last-ditch effort to repeal major components of Obamacare as "poorly thought-out" and "harmful", hastily pulled together without input "from the people who take care of patients or even from the American public".

Republican backsliding on the 2015 bill has been underway all year; unhappiness with it was a large part of what killed the basic strategy of "repeal and delay" back in January. Republicans in Congress have generally seen more policy engagement from the White House on taxes than they did in the health-care fight. "I don't think this is something voters are going to forget".

John McCain received heaps of praise and positive news reports after he voted "no" on the Senate GOP's skinny repeal bill early Friday. Trump will swear him as Chief of Staff Monday morning.

For now at least, many Trump supporters blame the Republican Party's problems on its leaders in Congress. On Friday, the president again threatened to let Obamacare "implode" in order to make a deal.

". We as Republicans, especially now, agree on how to do it. Health care is a good example".

On a squeaker of a vote, the Senate began an extraordinary debate on Tuesday over profound philosophical and practical changes to the nation's healthcare system - without knowing what the legislation would be.

McCain promised a show on the way in, and delivered. But then they seemed to yield to the requests of the president republican, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski who have tipped the balance.

"John McCain is a hero and has courage and does the right thing", Schumer said afterwards. "For them to skinny back down that tree, that's tough".

The repeal bill is being considered under special expedited procedures that apply to certain budget-related legislation.

And the irony can not be ignored that his vote preserved - at least for now - the controversial reforms brought into being by the very politician who defeated him nearly nine years ago.

GOP leaders stressed to the rank-and-file during a conference meeting Friday morning that they should focus on the bills that have made it through the lower chamber but await action in the Senate.

The only repeal Bill ever to pass Congress would have left intact some popular ACA insurance rules, such as letting young adults stay on their parents' health plans to age 26.

If a senator objects to any of these provisions, the presiding officer could sustain the objection, following the parliamentarian's advice.

He started today with attacking the Republican Senate, asking them to "get rid of 60 votes NOW!"
