Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is having a tough time getting his fellow Republicans to agree on a bill to replace Obamacare.

As he revises the bill to gain the support of some senators, he loses the support of others.

Per Politico:

The GOP’s quest to repeal Obamacare is hanging by a thread, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell scrambles to lock down 50 votes just to open debate on the Senate GOP health care bill.

Two Senate Republicans – Rand Paul and Susan Collins – have said they will vote against the motion to proceed to debate. That means McConnell needs to win over every other GOP senator simply to discuss the legislation to realize Republicans’ seven-year repeal pledge.

The political line McConnell must walk is a thin one to get one of these senators to support the bill:

It won’t be easy: Moderate senators like Ohio’s Rob Portman, Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski and Nevada’s Dean Heller are still on the fence about the bill, worried about its deep cuts to Medicaid. At the other end of the spectrum, conservative Sen. Mike Lee is undecided even after GOP leaders tried to include his idea for rolling back more of Obamacare’s regulations. If just one of those holdout Republicans decides to vote no, it would sink the GOP’s repeal bid and represent a massive setback for the Trump administration’s already-stalled agenda. No Senate Democrat will back it.

The list of Senators Politico identifies as, “The 11 senators who may be the most difficult to land” are: Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Susan Collins, Sen. Jeff Flake, Sen. Dean Heller, Sen. Mike Lee, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Sen. Rand Paul, Sen. Rob Portman, Sen. John Hoeven, and Sen. Jerry Moran.

  3. Thanks for the suggestions you have provided here. Another thing I would like to state is that personal computer memory demands generally increase along with other innovations in the technology. For instance, if new generations of processor chips are brought to the market, there is usually a matching increase in the scale preferences of all laptop or computer memory in addition to hard drive space. This is because the software operated by simply these cpus will inevitably surge in power to use the new technology.

  4. Thanks , I’ve recently been searching for information about this subject for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve discovered so far. But, what about the conclusion? Are you sure about the source?

  5. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
