Moderates may lose a major fight on Medicaid

Sen. Portman told reporters that he is working with Senate colleagues to provide governors with a "dedicated new funding stream" to ensure that people using expanded Medicaid resources to treat their addiction can continue to receive treatment as they work to get back on their feet. Conservatives worry that the changes may make it harder to pass the legislation in the House. Tactics will include procedural maneuvers that will disrupt routine order and late-night floor speeches demanding greater transparency. In a video, several female senators shared their constituents' stories.

President Trump took to Twitter Monday morning accusing Democrats of wanting to "stop tax cuts, good healthcare and Border Security".

A McConnell spokesman said on Monday he had no scheduling updates to provide.

Also on Monday, Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of MA were scheduled to rally supporters against the Republican plan in a Facebook Live event, another Democratic aide said.

"Republicans are writing their healthcare bill under the cover of darkness because they are ashamed of it", Schumer charged. "Where it can be vetted, debated and amended in the open, for the American people to see, as is their right".

The left-leaning lawmakers noted that the Senate has not yet held a single public hearing on the American Health Care Act (AHCA) set for a vote before July 4, which Sanders called an "embarrassing, disastrous process and an embarrassing, disastrous bill". Schumer asked McConnell whether there would be sufficient time to review and debate the legislation. The Senate is not expected to hold any hearings. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has made the calculation that it's better to have a secretive process and rush a bill to the floor, given the House's raucous, if abbreviated, debate and the deep unpopularity of its bill. Sticking points for Republicans are centered around proposed cuts to Medicaid, taxes related to the ACA, and funding for Planned Parenthood. But it is not yet clear how or whether he can get the 50 votes he will need to pass the bill. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated the House bill would cause 23 million people to lose insurance over a decade and leave many sicker and older consumers with much higher costs. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and senators Patty Murray (D-WA) and Ron Wyden (D-OR) sent a letter to Republican committee chairs with jurisdiction over Trumpcare requesting that they "schedule hearings to discuss, debate and hear testimony about the health care bill you are now drafting in secret".

"It's not unusual, especially for a big bill like this".

"Nobody's hiding the ball here", the Kentucky Republican said last week.
