Health Care Showdown: Senate Health Care Vote: What to Expect

The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, says it is time for a vote.On Tuesday, he will have the Senate vote on a motion to proceed — in this case, on whether to take up a health care repeal bill that narrowly passed the House in May.Continue reading the main storyNobody expects that bill to become law. Instead, it would essentially serve as the vehicle for the Senate’s legislation. The House bill’s text would be swapped out for the Senate’s preferred language, whatever that ultimately is.How does the vote math break down?Republicans hold 52 seats in the Senate, and to be successful, they need a majority for the motion to proceed. In a deadlock, Vice President Mike Pence would break the tie in favor of proceeding.Only days after announcing he has brain cancer, Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, plans to return to the Senate on Tuesday.

Health Care Has G.O.P. Down. Tax Cuts May Be the Cure.

Americans for Prosperity, the Koch group that will be most involved in the push, says it has spent nearly $1 million so far on lobbying and advertising efforts, including more than 500 meetings with lawmakers and their staff members on Capitol Hill and ads directed at Republicans on the Senate and House committees responsible for tax policy. By the time debate begins on a tax bill, expected later this year, the group will most likely have spent several million dollars more, its strategists said.The American Action Network, another conservative policy group, expects to invest more than $20 million in an advertising campaign promoting tax changes, more than it spent pushing for the health care bill.“The American Action Network spent $15 million on health care reform since Jan. 1,” said Corry Bliss, the group’s executive director. “Looking ahead to the tax initiative that we’re all waiting for,” he added, “$15 million from our perspective is the starting point.”PhotoAn ad for Americans for Prosperity, which has spent nearly $1 million lobbying for tax reform.Credit Americans for ProsperityUnderlying this kind of spending — on a policy, no less, that was once expected to be a relatively easy lift for Republicans — is a rising sense of urgency. Republicans fear they could be looking at a worst-of-two-worlds scenario in which they have a historically unpopular president dogged by persistent legal and ethical questions, at the same time they remain unable to restore a semblance of functionality to Capitol Hill.Watching efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act fall apart was more than just a setback for conservatives who disliked the law, which expanded the government’s role in health care and created an expensive new entitlement program. For some, it was a demoralizing glimpse into a future in which Republicans have all the power in Washington but they are powerless to do anything with it.“Anytime a party is given this kind of opportunity, you’re judged by the product you produce,” said Josh Holmes, a Republican strategist and former aide to Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader.The inability to produce is especially problematic for the Republican Party, which portrays itself as more capable and efficient when it comes to running an unwieldy federal bureaucracy. “Where Republicans have their biggest problem,” Mr […]

Trump, Tweeting About Health Care, Says, ‘We Will Return’

WASHINGTON — President Trump said early Tuesday that Democrats and “a few” Republicans were at fault for the collapse of health care legislation in the Senate, and restated his strategy to let the Affordable Care Act “fail.”In a pair of morning tweets, Mr. Trump said, “We will return,” but he provided no specifics.Senate Republicans’ hopes for a health care bill died Monday night when two Republican senators said they would oppose their party’s bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, leaving the Senate at least two votes short of what would be needed to start the debate on the proposed law.On Monday night, Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, said that “the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful.”He described a plan to vote now on a measure to repeal President Barack Obama’s signature law. But that is unlikely to pass, because it could leave millions without insurance and likely push insurance markets into turmoil.Continue reading the main story […]
