In the opening scene from the FRONTLINE documentary, "McCain," the six-term senator’s colleagues reveal new details from the night of his deciding vote against the GOP’s bill to repeal Obamacare. Subscribe on YouTube: http://bit.ly/1BycsJW McCain had been diagnosed with a deadly form of brain cancer just over a week before, and returned to Capitol Hill for the vote on what would have been Trump’s first major legislative achievement. “[Sen.] Lisa Murkowski (R-Ariz.) and I knew that he had reservations,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), a longtime colleague of McCain’s, tells FRONTLINE. “We were talking with him about the bill. And all of a sudden, he pointed to both of us and he said, ‘You know, you two are right.’” Then, Collins says, she felt a tap on her shoulder. It was Vice President Mike Pence, who had come to pressure McCain to support the president. “The vice president stood toe to toe with John McCain,” Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) tells FRONTLINE. “And he was in his space. It was very close. They went on for, I don’t know, it seemed like 15 or 20 minutes, back and forth, back and forth.” Ultimately, King says, Pence turned on his heel and walked away. And then came McCain’s “thumbs down” vote — striking the crushing blow against a key campaign promise that had been made by a president who had criticized McCain’s Vietnam war record, called him a “dummy,” and portrayed him as a symbol of the old Republican Party. "McCain," an exploration of Sen. John McCain's complicated relationship with President Trump and his own Republican Party, premieres beginning Tues., April 17 at 10/9c on PBS & online: https://to.pbs.org/2GD55N2 Twitter: https://twitter.com/frontlinepbs Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/frontline Google+: https://plus.google.com/+frontline/posts FRONTLINE is streaming more than 200 documentaries online, for free, here: http://to.pbs.org/hxRvQP Funding for FRONTLINE is provided through the support of PBS viewers and by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

The bill doesn’t know what problem it’s trying to solve.

The GOP healthcare bill keeps some of the most popular parts of Obamacare, like letting young adults stay on their parents' health insurance until age 26 and requiring insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions. But the Republican bill gets rid of the key element that made Obamacare work: the individual mandate. Now that people aren't required to have insurance, healthy people could leave insurance pools en masse, leaving sick people who are more expensive to cover. Hypocrisy is a minor sin in politics, but still, it is remarkable how much of it there is to be found in this legislation. A core Republican complaint when Obamacare was passed was that the law delayed many of its provisions in order to reduce public outcry and manipulate the CBO’s score. The GOP bill is similarly aggressive with such tricks, delaying changes to the Medicaid expansion until 2020 and pushing Obamacare’s tax on expensive insurance plans out until 2025. Because Republicans aren’t even trying to win Democratic votes, they’re stuck designing a bill that can wiggle through the budget reconciliation process (another thing they complained about Democrats doing). That means they can’t make major changes to insurance markets like repealing Obamacare’s essential benefit standards or allowing insurance to be sold across state lines. That last part is particularly striking, given that it was one of President Trump’s five demands in his speech last week. I’ve always been skeptical about the savings Republicans could wrest by changing those regulations, but now they can’t get those savings at all — which means sacrificing a key part of their theory of cost control. This bill has a lot of problems, and more will come clear as experts study its language, the Congressional Budget Office release its estimates, and industry players make themselves heard. But the biggest problem this bill has is that it’s not clear why it exists. What does it make better? What is it even trying to achieve? Democrats wanted to cover more people and reduce long-term costs, and they had an argument for how their bill did both. As far as I can tell, Republicans have neither. At best, you can say this bill makes every obvious health care metric a bit worse, but at least it cuts taxes on rich people? Is that really a winning argument in American politics? In reality, what I think we’re seeing here is Republicans trying desperately to come up with something that would allow them to repeal and replace Obamacare. This is a compromise of a compromise of a compromise aimed at fulfilling that promise. But “repeal and replace” is a political slogan, not a policy goal. This is a lot of political pain to endure for a bill that won’t improve many peoples’ lives, but will badly hurt millions.

Opponents of the bill are already attacking Republicans for scheduling a vote before the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has analyzed the amended bill. The CBO score would project the effects of the bill--the changes in the number of insured premiums and its impact on the federal deficit. _ Hit the thumbs up button if you want to see more content like this.

(3 Mar 2009) President Barack Obama took command of one final attempt by Democrats to enact bitterly contested health care legislation, calling for an "up or down vote" within weeks under rules denying Republicans the ability to kill the bill with mere talk. Appearing before a White House audience of invited guests, many of them wearing white medical coats, Obama firmly rejected calls from Republicans to draft new legislation from scratch. The White House and Democratic leaders said they hoped that Obama's maneuvering would at least win the votes of wavering conservative and moderates in their own party, even if it didn't entice Republicans.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ascendant Republicans drove a budget through Congress on Friday that gives them an early but critical victory in their crusade to scrap President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. The vote trains the spotlight on whether they and Donald Trump can deliver on repeated pledges to not just erase that statute but replace it. Demonstrating the GOP's willingness to plunge into a defining but risky battle, the House used a near party-line 227-198 roll call to approve a budget that prevents Senate Democrats from derailing a future bill, thus far unwritten, annulling and reshaping Obama's landmark 2010 law. The budget, which won Senate approval early Thursday, does not need the president's signature. "The `Unaffordable' Care Act will soon be history!" Trump tweeted Friday in a dig at the statute's name, the Affordable Care Act. Trump takes the presidential oath next Friday. But the real work looms in coming months as the new administration and congressional Republicans write binding legislation to erase much of the health care law and replace it with a GOP version. Republicans still have internal divisions over what that would look like, though past GOP proposals have cut much of the existing law's federal spending and eased coverage requirements while relying more on tax benefits and letting states make decisions. Friday's final vote was preceded by debate that saw hyperbole on both sides and underscored how the two parties have alternate-universe views of Obama's overhaul. Democrats praised it for extending coverage to tens of millions of Americans, helping families afford policies and seniors buy prescriptions, while Republicans focused on the rising premiums and deductibles and limited access to doctors and insurers that have plagued many. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said the health care law was "so arrogant and so contrary to our founding principles" and had not delivered on Obama's promises to lower costs and provide more choice. "We have to step in before things get worse. This is nothing short of a rescue mission," Ryan said. "Our experimentation in Soviet-style central planning of our health care system has been an abject failure," said freshman Rep. Jodey Arrington, R-Texas. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Ryan was peddling "mythology" and said the GOP was moving toward making things worse for health care consumers. "They want to cut benefits and run. They want to cut access and run," she said of Republicans. "This is a sad day in the history of this country as Republicans begin the process of destroying health care in America," said Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., who said the GOP has no replacement in hand.

Five House Republicans hope to add to Democrats' healthcare reform bill an amendment that would automatically enroll members of Congress in the public option program. The effort, spearheaded by Reps. John Fleming (La.), Joe Wilson (S.C.), Wally Herger (Calif.), Phil Gingrey (Ga.) and Steve Scalise (La.), would bar lawmakers from participating in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, which they currently use for health insurance. Instead, members would have to rely on the Health Insurance Exchange and the public option plan House Democrats are proposing in their latest healthcare reform effort. If Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi [D-Calif.] and her Democratic counterparts truly believe that their government insurance option is the best way forward for healthcare in the United States, then they should be fully supportive of amending the bill to ensure that every single member of Congress, both in the House and Senate, is enrolled in it," explained Rep. Gingrey, who is leading the new campaign. http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/66331-gop-members-offer-amendment-to-force-congress-to-participate-in-public-plan

Cable news treated a major health care vote like an episode of House of Cards.

Follow Strikethrough on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/CarlosMazaVox/ In the coverage of the Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, cable news networks have largely fixated on the drama of trying to get the Republican’s bill through Congress: the vote whipping, the partisan infighting, and Trump’s efforts to make a “deal” with the more conservative members of his party. Treating the debate over health care like an episode of House of Cards might make for good television, but it fails to accomplish the basic goal of good political journalism: to explain why this stuff matters to people outside of DC. And if the angry town halls across the country reveal anything, it’s that you don’t need the drama of congressional politics to make people care about what’s happening to their health care.

What became clear during their attempt to get rid of The ACA, also called “Obamacare”, is that people like it. Voters are even supportive of The ACA in red states where voters despise the name “Obama”, but tend to embrace the protections of his health care plan. In particular, protections for pre-existing conditions are very popular amongst American voters. Two years ago, Democrats were clearly in favor of The ACA and Republicans were against it, but now conservatives are having to bend their platforms to account for popular provisions of ACA. The difference between the 2016 campaign platforms and now is stark. In 2018, the midterm elections is shaping around one big question: whether pre-existing protections will be protected.

The Associated Press has reported that on Sunday former President Barack Obama, made his first public comments about the ongoing debate over his signature health care plan. Obama implored members of Congress to demonstrate political courage even if it goes against their party's positions. Obama briefly returned to the spotlight as he accepted the annual John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award at JFK's presidential library in Boston. The award is named for a 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Kennedy that profiled eight U.S. senators who risked their careers by taking principled though unpopular positions. In his approximately 30-minute speech after accepting the award, Obama steered clear of partisan attacks and never mentioned his successor, President Donald Trump, who has often criticized the previous administration and has worked to undo many of Obama's initiatives, including the Affordable Care Act. The former president recalled members of Congress who voted to pass the ACA during his presidency, only to lose their seat in later elections. "They had a chance to insure millions," he said. "But this vote could also cost them their seats, perhaps end their political careers." Obama made no direct reference to Thursday's House vote to dismantle much of the health care law, but declared that while it did not take courage to help the rich and powerful, it does require courage to help the sick and vulnerable. "It is my fervent hope and the hope of millions ... such courage is still possible, that today's members of Congress regardless of party are willing to look at the facts and speak the truth, even when it contradicts party positions," said Obama, whose appeal seemed to focus on wavering Republicans. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2017-05-07-US--Obama-Profile%20in%20Courage/id-13a0a9c11d8b4a6d8f18074038530f3f http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Republicans shielding themselves from the disastrous healthcare plan they're about to unleash upon America isn’t going over so well. Brett Erlich, Ana Kasparian, and Michael Shure, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "Republican leadership has moved to cut controversial language from its healthcare bill that would exempt Congress and their staff from changes to ObamaCare. An amendment to the House GOP's ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill would have allowed states to seek waivers for certain ObamaCare regulations, but lawmakers and their staff would be exempt from the changes. A new bill authored by Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) would remove the exemption. GOP staff and lawmakers said the exemption was originally added to comply with Senate rules but acknowledged that it was politically problematic. "That'll be fixed. That was written in to comply with some Senate rules to make sure it's just a budget vote," said Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-N.J.), who authored the amendment.”* Read more here: http://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/330845-gop-moves-to-kill-language-exempting-congress-from-obamacare-repeal-bill Hosts: Brett Erlich, Ana Kasparian, Michael ShureCast: Brett Erlich, Ana Kasparian, Michael Shure *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

On November 7, 2009, Congressman Davis spoke on the House floor against H.R. 3962, Speaker Pelosi's health care legislation, calling it "another misguided effort by the Majority to make it more complicated and expensive to create jobs." Congressman Davis supports the Republican alternative legislation, the Common Sense Health Care Reform and Affordability Act (H.R. 4038), because it would reduce premium costs for all Americans to make health insurance more affordable and accessible - without raising taxes or cutting Medicare benefits for seniors.

Linda Douglass of the White House Office of Health Reform answers a question from outside the recent town hall in New Hampshire on why Congress voted to exempt themselves from reform. This is a myth: there is no exemption and there has not been any such vote. To the contrary, reform gives all Americans access to an insurance exchange much like the one Congress has enjoyed, and just like Congress, Americans will be free to make their own choices.

Nearly one month after Donald Trump became president and signed an executive order intended to start the ball rolling on Obamacare’s repeal, Congressional Republicans still haven’t passed a replacement for the landmark health care reform bill. We do have an outline for their plan, though, and it doesn’t bode well for low-income Americans. The GOP proposal would reduce state funding for providing free Medicaid insurance coverage to the poor and would give a flat tax credit to Americans who don’t receive insurance through their work adjusted by age — but not by income. This means that, if Americans who don’t receive health insurance coverage through their jobs can’t afford the premiums with their tax credit, they will likely have to remain uninsured. By contrast, the Affordable Care Act (colloquially known as Obamacare) expanded Medicaid coverage to lower-income Americans in participating states and provided income-based tax credits. Obamacare was specifically designed to help Americans with less money receive health insurance, while the Republican alternative does precisely the opposite.

Republican Whip Eric Cantor urges Congress to listen to the American people and vote against the Democrat health care overhaul bill. At no time in our history has the government mandated its citizens buy a good or service, Cuccinellis statement explained. The final reform bill mandates that every American must purchase health insurance before 2014 or pay a fine. Virginia isnt the only state looking to the courts on this issue. Last week, the State of Idaho passed a measure requiring the state attorney general to sue the federal government if residents are forced to buy health insurance. Similar legislation is also pending in 37 other states.

Trump Breaking News Network - BOOM! Mike Pence Just Said 6 BRUTAL Words To Congress About Healthcare! Democrats Are SCARED SH TLESS! House Republicans couldn’t round up enough votes Friday to pass their healthcare reform. Paul Ryan ultimately called off the vote because it was 15 votes short of making through the House. Of course, Democrats played the usual part of obstructing and refused to even give the bill a chance. After the bill was pulled, Democrats celebrated as if keeping Obamacare’s skyrocketing premiums is a win for America. Vice President Pence had just 5 words to respond their their gloating… “THAT VICTORY WON’T LAST VERY LONG!” Speaking to a group of small business owners in West Virginia, Pence promised the American people not to worry one bit. Pence then SLAMMED Nancy Pelosi for saying that the day was “a victory for the American people”.
