Rand Paul denounces 'new entitlements' in emerging health bill

West Virginia's House on Friday affirmed its support for more limited tax changes than the Senate had passed, continuing their impasse on any tax changes. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., listens as Attorney General Jeff Sessions testifies before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence about his role in the firing of FBI Director James Comey and the investigation into contacts between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, June 13, 2017.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders said on CBS News' "Face the Nation" Sunday that as the House GOP-passed health care bill is debated behind closed doors in the Senate, Democrats should do "everything they can" to oppose the legislation in "any way" they can.

The Senate could vote on the plan next week. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. "So the first step in this may be crafted among a small group of people, but then everyone's going to get to weigh in".

Rank and file Republicans remain largely in the dark about what will ultimately end up being in their health care bill, making many even more skeptical the legislation is going to be ready and voted on by July 4.

We can not say the same about the health insurance millions of Americans count on.

That has created an air of distrust and concern - on and off Capitol Hill, with Democrats but also with Republicans.

The House of Representatives also is under pressure to approve the Senate bill instead of holding a conference to iron out differences between House and Senate.

Top LeT terrorist Junaid Mattoo killed in J&K encounter
A 22-year-old youth Muhammad Ashraf Khar was hit by a bullet and 12 other protesting civilians were injured in the Arwani clashes. Also on Friday, Indian soldiers fired at a taxi after it ignored orders to halt at a checkpoint in northern Bandipora, Khan said.


Other reports said Trump called the bill a "son of a b--" and told senators at the luncheon their version of the AHCA needed to be more "generous".

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that the House bill would leave 23 million more Americans uninsured by 2026 than under current law. This would likely mean restructuring the funding provided in the House bill to help states stabilize their insurance markets. But a hurried schedule - accelerated only for political purposes - would have the Senate vote just hours after the bill becomes public, and before we know how it really affects us.

Community Catalyst Action Fund, which bills itself as a consumer health organization, is targeting Sens.

Among them is Kentucky GOP Sen.

Finally, Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, a possible swing vote on the bill, told Vox that she is unable to give clear answers to constituents about what's in the bill.

The sources say the president did not specify what aspects of the bill he was characterizing. "For the truth we need to go to the ancient tree who leads them".

When the leader of the Senate wants to hide major legislation, that's a hint he doesn't think it will be popular.

Mitch McConnell and a select few Republican members of the Senate are now drafting a piece of legislation that represents one-sixth of our nation's economy and jeopardizes the healthcare of millions of Americans - and nobody, not even the people who will be voting on its passage - has any idea of what's in it.
