Trump says he backs new GOP health care effort

Meanwhile, President Trump endorsed a Republican health care plan introduced by USA senators Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, which would eliminate many Obamacare mandates and subsidies and give states block grants to help individuals defray care costs.

Sen. Bernie Sanders is offering legislation to expand Medicare to provide health insurance for all Americans. Bernie Sanders unveiled his Medicare for All bill yesterday amid steadily growing Democratic support for single-payer health care - including from Bay State U.S. Sens Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey - but offered few details about how his plan would be funded.

Republican senators are ready to release details of a last-ditch effort to repeal and replace President Barack Obama's health care law. But it's a touchstone for the Democratic Party's liberal, activist base.

The notion was submerged as Obama enacted his overhaul, which boosted federal spending and set coverage requirements but left much of the existing private system in place.

Sanders introduced his bill Wednesday with the support of 16 Senate Democrats, more support than he's ever received for single-payer bills he has proposed in the past.

James Franco's The Disaster Artist Has the Best Trailer of the Year
Franco's Tommy repeatedly insists that "Acting is truth", and in the post-screening Q&A, the real Sestero described the movie as "terrifyingly true".

"We will defend it at every turn", Sen. "We will go further and we will say in this country everyone, everyone gets a right to basic health care". Potential candidates Kirsten Gillibrand of NY and Kamala Harris of California also attended the event. And they'd no longer owe out-of-pocket expenses like deductibles. Aides said it would probably be financed by income-adjusted premiums people would pay the government, ranging from no premiums for the poorest Americans to high levies on the rich and corporations. Sanders says most people and employers would save money.

They also acknowledged that they have an uphill battle to get the bill passed before October 1, when the GOP effort to repeal the law loses its protection against Democratic filibusters. Copayments would be allowed for prescription drugs. U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton, who is also the subject of 2020 buzz, supports, "universal health care", but stopped short of endorsing the Sanders plan. "I can't think of anything worse than having government being more involved in your health care instead of less involved". It would provide block grants to states to help individuals pay for health coverage.

Lewis-Miller said the bill was designed as a negotiating tool.

Republicans lost the votes of three of their 52 senators in July on legislation aimed at Obamacare repeal.
