Cruz, Johnson, Lee, Paul 'not ready' to support GOP healthcare plan

Thursday, June 22, 2017 | Tag Cloud

Enrollment in California's healthcare program for the poor has soared as the state implements President Obama's federal overhaul, pleasing advocates who have sought expanded coverage but also presenting new costs for the state -- a total of $1.2 billion more than originally thought.

(Worthy News) - Four Republican senators are demanding changes to a GOP proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare, and warned just hours after the bill was released that they "are not ready to vote" on the proposal until it is altered.

It's enough to sink the bill because Republicans can only afford to lose two Republicans in order to pass the measure with a simple majority. Republicans have a narrow 52-48 majority in the Senate.

"The current bill does not repeal Obamacare." Paul said. "It does not keep our promises to the American people. I will oppose it coming to the floor in its current form, but I remain open to negotiations." [ Source ]

  1. Let the bill die! You see, the insurance companies are the ones who'd love to keep some portions of Obamacare.......which this bill does. If we let it die however......Obamacare will self destruct on its own. The insurance companies will not be receiving the annual $$$Trillion bailout like Obama was planning, thus sending the U.S. into sure doom. And the insurance companies will be forced to stop paying for people who don't pay into Obamacare. Obamacare will self-destruct. Bye bye Obamacareless!
