Dems say they'll slow Senate work over secretive care bill

Obamacare in 2018: Many will pay the price

Liberal activists have been urging Schumer and other Senate Democrats to adopt the last-ditch strategy for weeks. "If the Republicans won't debate their healthcare in the open for the American people to see, they shouldn't expect business as usual". "Since last week, I have gotten more than 1,000 phone calls from people who are pleading with me to do whatever I can to stop Republicans", Warren said from the Senate floor, according to the Hill.

Senator Kamala Harris (D-California) said that the Senate bill is almost identical to the bill that passed through the House, which President Donald Trump reportedly called "mean, mean, mean" during a meeting with Republican Senators last week. They plan to control the floor of the chamber Monday night and try to force the House-passed health care bill to committee in a bid to further delay it. As Politico noted, while some Democrats in the Senate are planning to block lengthy committee hearings on Tuesday, it's not clear whether the whole of the party is committed to maintaining the standoff beyond the start of the week.

The greater impact likely will be the interruption of the legislative process and routine Senate business. Democrats were more than happy to remind the GOP of that extended 2009 debate, as we wait to see if there will be final action over the next ten days on a GOP health care bill.

McConnell responded that senators would meet on the Senate floor with an unlimited amendment process.

Senate Democrats on Monday night began using parliamentary maneuvers to slow Senate business as part of a coordinated protest against the GOP push to pass an Obamacare replacement bill.

A group of ten Republican Senators are secretly meeting and writing a plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

It had to be, especially with the wind. "And to be honest with you, this week I don't think I ever got nervous, not at one point". "He's going to overpower golf courses, and he's got a great demeanor", said Bill Haas, who finished tied for fifth.

Senate Democrats are moving into hour five of their talk-a-thon against Trumpcare and against the deeply undemocratic process Mitch McConnell is following to ram it through.

A spokesman for McConnell declined to comment.

The Senate version is expected to end the Medicaid expansion more slowly than the House bill would, and it could include larger tax credits to help older Americans purchase health insurance.

It's not just Democrats who have been left out of the health care deliberations.

And not only have the Republicans been crafting this massive piece of legislation in total secrecy, but the uncertainty surrounding their efforts have wreaked havoc on the health care system already in place.

As Democrats prepared for battle over the Senate bill, conservative House Republicans planned to send a letter to McConnell warning against letting the legislation get too moderate if he wants to keep support from the House after it passed the Senate.
