GOP Senators: Healthcare Bill ‘Definitely Not Repealing Obamacare’


Soon after the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released the draft of the Senate’s healthcare bill on Thursday, Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) blasted the bill for not fully repealing Obamacare.

Johnson told NBC News that he “would not call this Obamacare repeal,” adding that “it’s definitely not repealing Obamacare.”

“I’m just saying, I think I have a difficult time thinking, again, I’m an accountant, I’m a business guy, I know it takes time to develop this information in such a complex system, I have a hard time believing I’ll have the information prior to when leadership may want to vote on it,” Johnson reportedly said. “I would certainly say it’s trying to address and fix some of the mess, just some of the mess, created by Obamacare. But that’s my concern, I’m not sure it’s fixing enough.”


Sen @RonJohnsonWI is still concerned leadership is rushing a vote on the health care bill, which he says is not Obamacare repeal -->
Paul, who has criticized the House’s bill, told MSNBC that “it looks like we’re keeping Obamacare” and “not repealing it.” He said he and other Senators would be releasing a more detailed statement on the matter later in afternoon.

President Donald Trump said that “a little negotiation” would be needed but the end product would “be very good.”

“Obamacare is dead and we’re putting a plan out today that is going to be negotiated,” Trump reportedly said.

Democrats have slammed McConnell for writing the bill in secrecy. Democrats like Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are also trying to paint Republicans as “heartless” for supporting a bill that cuts Medicaid while giving tax breaks to “millionaires.”

McConnell reportedly wants to have a vote on the bill before July 4.

Update:  Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Paul, and Johnson released this statement:

UPDATE ON THE RAT :Senate Majority Leader 

The Senate version of the Obamacare repeal and place bill that been has kept behind locked doors for weeks was finally unveiled this morning.

Under the plan presented, Obamcare taxes would be repealed and Medicaid’s expansion program would be phased out. The tax on health savings accounts will be reduced from 20 percent to 10 percent, and the tax on medical savings accounts will be reduced from 20 percent to 15 percent.

The plan will also grant subsidies that would go to insurance customers based on income, and health insurance companies that provide subsidies for reduced out-of-pocket costs for low income customers of Obamacare plans will be reimbursed.

In other words, more socialized medicine. Continue Reading :>>>>>Here
