Trump urges GOP Senators to repeal Obamacare immediately, then replace

Letter to the editor: GOP's health care plan is shameful

Two GOP senators who espouse this approach, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ben Sasse of Nebraska, welcomed Trump's suggestion. If Obamacare goes under, Republicans will be blamed - not former President Obama and certainly not the minority Democrats. Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania said on Fox News Channel that while he would be okay with a split a approach, "I'm not sure it would pass".

Conservatives said they opposed the idea, along with the chairmen of Congress' two tax-writing committees: Senate Finance chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and House Ways and Means chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas. Splitting up the process, critics say, will leave a lot of Americans uninsured till the passage of a replacement bill.

It is time for Americans to come together to do what is best for the country. The president ran on repeal and replace.

Marc Short, Trump's director of legislative affairs, appearing on Fox News Sunday, said: "Our preference is to pass the bill the Senate has right now". When the GOP was in the minority, the Republicans voted unanimously to repeal the law without any replacement at all. "We are focused on doing that". McConnell's spokesman declined to comment on Trump's tweet.

President Donald Trump is offering his own solution to the Senate impasse on a health care overhaul.

Plane crash on California freeway
NBC News reported that two people were on board the aircraft at the time of the crash and their conditions are unknown. The aircraft clipped a vehicle as it came crashing down in a fireball but the driver escaped with a bruised elbow.

Cassidy, who has said he can not yet support the current draft of the Senate bill because of the impact its cuts in Medicaid funding would have on his state, received a blistering reception at a Baton Rouge open meeting Friday.

Price also defended Trump's commitment to passing a new health care law despite his latest spate of attacks on the news media, especially MSNBC "Morning Joe" host's Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.

"If you wish to chant and stop others from being able to speak or be heard, that is not civil", Cassidy retorted.

It's easy to see that most citizens and a significant number of Republican senators do not support the GOP's plan to scrap and replace the ACA.

McConnell is trying to strike deals with members of both factions to fashion a bill lawmakers can vote on.

Sony will start pressing vinyl records again because they're trendy
Sony was a major global player in the development of CDs, which have since taken a back seat to downloads and music streaming. The company originally stopped producing vinyl in 1989 as the music-buying public moved instead to CD and other formats.

Senate leaders also are rewriting their bill to provide $45 billion to combat opioid addiction and provide more financial assistance to low- and moderate-income Americans.

The split between the Affordable Care Act and Obamacare gave Republican leaders a large opportunity: They were in a ideal position to define Obamacare however they liked, and most Republicans (except for a handful of true ideologues and a perhaps larger handful of contrarians) would go along.

"But that's what they're going to use, these efforts to try to buy people off, " Kasich said.

"The president's held multiple meetings within the White House itself", Price added, "with physicians, with small-business groups, with other folks who have been harmed by Obamacare, with patients, individual stakeholders from across this land who tell him and have told us repeatedly that the current system is collapsing. We should do repeal, with a delay".
