Opposition to GOP Health Bill Rising

The situation is prime for ridicule from Democrats, who Republicans previously accused of "rushing" Obamacare through Congress. Democrats in the House have already leapt on several of their Republican colleagues for admitting they didn't fully read the bill before the 4 May vote.

"Everything about it turned the American people off - that's not the way to operate", McConnell continued.

Asked by Bloomberg if he had seen the Senate version of the bill, Mr McCain responded, "No, nor have I met any American that has". But underscoring the uncertainty he faces, senators from both ends of his party's spectrum were grumbling about the bill's expected contents and the clandestine way it's being crafted. They indicated that the legislation would also be available to the public Thursday morning, though it's unclear exactly how it is being released. Just a day before the Senate passed it, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appeared before the House Foreign Affairs Committee and appeared to speak against the measure, as he pressed the Trump administration's case for more "constructive" relations with Russian Federation.

Possible Assassination List of GOP Lawmakers Found on Scalise Shooter's Body
Hodgkinson died at the hospital Wednesday after a shootout with Scalise's security detail and the Alexandria Police Department. The gunman was believed to have harbored unfavorable views toward Republicans at large, including President Donald Trump.

They're pushing for a vote next week. Just as, if the bill succeeds, Trump will surely be the first to spike the football, much like he did in the Rose Garden after health care reform narrowly passed the House. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said. Democrats drafted it and passed it without help or input from Republicans, and although President Barack Obama and his team meant well, Americans blamed them every time a shortcoming or flaw was exposed in the health care law. "It's apparently being written by a small handful of staffers for members of the Republican leadership in the Senate".

Sen. Mitch McConnell, then the House minority leader, was outraged.

On Tuesday, McConnell announced there would be a "discussion draft" unveiled Thursday on health care, but some in the right flank of his conference are already voicing skepticism for what's coming.

Portugal & Mexico draw 2-2 in Confederations Cup
Defender Shkodran Mustafi was already a part of the national team at both the 2014 World Cup and EURO 2016. Julian Draxler's penalty made it 2-1 after Leon Goretzka was fouled before Goretzka got the third.

Democrats said they were planning to start forcing procedural votes to slow the Senate down, making floor speeches and taking other steps to call public attention to McConnell's effort.

The Senate version of the bill, according to reports, is similar to the House version but with a bigger window to phase out Medicaid expansion and more funds for tax credits to purchase health insurance.

"The senate passed this bill on a strong bipartisan vote of 98-2, sending a powerful message to President [Donald] Trump that he should not lift sanctions on Russian Federation". And another conservative, Sen.

Afghan Soldier Wounds 7 US Soldiers in Insider Attack
US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said on Monday he would present options on Afghanistan to President Donald Trump "very soon". The Taliban and the Islamic State group have carried out a string of attacks in Afghanistan over the last few weeks.

Conservative Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky said he had not yet seen the Senate bill. Thune said "it's high time we turned the page on this failed Obamacare experiment".
