In a speech on the Senate floor, Cantwell called the proposal that may come up for a vote before the end of the month an attempt to kick people off Medicaid and end the program as it now exists. Lindsey Graham, of SC and Louisiana's Bill Cassidy. Dean Heller, R-Nev., and Ron Johnson, R-Wis.

President Donald Trump says he hopes Republican senators will vote for new legislation that aims to repeal and replace the health care law enacted by his predecessor.

Due to procedural rules under reconciliation, the GOP is frantically maneuvering to push this bill through the legislature within 10 days. Democrats will all vote "no".

On Tuesday night, Kimmel said Cassidy "lied right to my face".

Rand argued that the Graham-Cassidy Bill only gives an amnesty to ObamaCare as it isn't a repeal but keeps it. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.) repeal and replace bill, saying it "immortalizes ObamaCare [.] all it does is reshuffle the proceeds from Democratic states".

Many Republicans have condemned Paul for obstructing what they believe to be the GOP's last chance to repeal Obamacare.

The bill would repeal the penalties for large employers that fail to offer affordable insurance to workers. But anyone could opt to buy a basic plan or supplemental coverage from a private insurer. He said he wants coverage for all, no discrimination based on preexisting conditions, lower premiums for middle-class families and no lifetime caps. "You're welcome to stop by the studio and take it anytime", he said.

What happens to private insurance subsidies? Those earning up to 250% of poverty get a break on deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses.

"If you asked any conservative up here-'Would you vote for a brand new trillion dollars in taxes, trillion dollars in spending and then we'll call it federalism by redistributing it and giving it out to the states?'-most people would laugh at you". State would get block grants instead. It would also cut and reshape Medicaid. The new Senate bill allows insurance companies to once again raise rates for people with pre-existing conditions, or even deny them coverage.

While these differences would all seem to make Graham-Cassidy better from a conservative perspective, Paul says that block-granting the money to the states makes Graham-Cassidy unacceptable. And it would allow health plans to refuse coverage of important health services - from mental health care to hospitalizations and prescription drugs, to substance abuse treatment and maternity care. However, the government now reimburses Planned Parenthood for non-abortion services that are covered by Medicaid.
