Senator Marco Rubio remains a “undecided,” as he was headed to the White House for a meeting with President Donald Trump. Rubio feels that the time out, might be a good thing, he things taking more time to get all the data possible. When asked what he hoped to see from his White House meeting, Rubio talked about seeing what changes President Trump had in mind, while the senator from Florida had some ideas he wanted to share with the president.
President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to repeal and replace “Obamacare” is now in the hands of a key group of GOP senators who are opposing —or not yet supporting — legislation Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pushing to bring to a vote this week. These lawmakers range from moderate to conservative Republicans, and include senators who were just re-elected and a couple facing tough re-election fights. Their concerns about the legislation vary along with their ideology, from those who say it’s overly punitive in ejecting people from the insurance rolls, to others who say it doesn’t go far enough in dismantling former President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. Satisfying one group risks alienating another.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has finally unwrapped his plan for dismantling President Barack Obama’s health care law. Now comes his next challenge — persuading enough Republicans to back the measure and avert a defeat that could be shattering for President Donald Trump and the GOP. McConnell released the bill Thursday after weeks of closed-door meetings searching for middle ground between conservative senators seeking an aggressive repeal of Obama’s statute and centrists warning about going too far. Erasing Obama’s law has been a marquee pledge for Trump and virtually the entire party for years.
Florida Senators are not yet on board with new health care bill
The Republican effort to secretly craft a health care bill and whisk it through the Senate is drawing fire from members of both parties. But it’s not uncommon for either party to draft bills or resolve stubborn final hurdles behind closed doors, forgoing the step-by-step, civics-book version of how Congress works. That’s even true for the process that produced President Barack Obama’s health care law, the Affordable Care Act, which the GOP is now trying to dismantle. While Democrats reached out to Republicans, held scores of committee hearings and staged many days of debate on that legislation in 2009 and 2010, they also resorted to private meetings to reach agreements that clinched its approval

A senior House Republican on Thursday called for immediate action to stabilize shaky health insurance markets around the country, amid concerns that the GOP could get blamed for rising premiums and dwindling choice next year. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, said the government should keep paying billions of dollars in “cost-sharing” subsidies that help low-income people with deductibles and copayments. The $7 billion is under a cloud because of mixed signals from the Trump administration and a lawsuit originally filed by House Republicans.
Wednesday President Donald Trump made a day trip to Ohio to do some stumping for his heath care plan as well as his hopes to jump start the infrastructure needs of the country. President Trump has arrived in Cincinnati to discuss health care and his infrastructure plan.
