Senate Health Bill in Peril as C.B.O. Predicts 22 Million More Uninsured

Senate Health Bill in Peril as C.B.O. Predicts 22 Million More Uninsured | 26 June 2017 | The Senate bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act was edging toward collapse on Monday after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said it would increase the number of people without health insurance by 22 million by 2026. Two Republicans, Senators Susan Collins of Maine and Rand Paul of Kentucky, said Monday that they would vote against even debating the health care bill, joining Senator Dean Heller of Nevada, who made the same pledge on Friday. Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin hinted that he, too, would probably oppose taking up the bill on a procedural vote expected as early as Tuesday, meaning a collapse could be imminent. "It's worse to pass a bad bill than pass no bill," Mr. Paul told reporters.
