Leaders should take the time to get health care right — Editorial

"My disappointment is mostly with those who promised to vote for repeal and then didn't vote for repeal", he said.

Even if Republicans drop the prospect of full ACA repeal, the administration could weaken the act by removing the individual mandate penalty.

Republicans controlling Congress are gearing up to advance their tax measure this fall, promising to lower rates on businesses and individuals, while clearing out many tax breaks and deductions.

Lee called the failed vote a "blessing in disguise" in his weekly newsletter and said Congress must go back to the drawing board. Why can't the portions of the Affordable Care Act that don't work be amended?

In his speech, Hatch, who is president pro tem of the Senate, said he has passed more legislation "than anyone alive today" by working with Democrats over his decades of service.

More specifically, McConnell said "no action" was not an option.

What Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have been presenting is a farce, badly acted at that. Several failures, a diluted and little understood recast and 20-hour free-for-all in which most Americans weren't ever sure what plan the Senate was debating?

For some background: The insurer payments that Trump describes as "bailouts" are actually way to keep insurers in the marketplaces and prevent premium hikes. Under former Speaker of the House John Boehner, the House sued the Obama administration for spending money on the subsidies that Congress had not allocated, alleging a violation of Article I, Section 9, Clause 7 of the Constitution: "No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law".

And there are no signs GOP leaders have chosen a fresh pathway after last week's collapse of their struggle to repeal and rewrite President Barack Obama's statute. God forbid, the ACA was so horrible it only provided health coverage to tens of millions of our citizens without insurance before.

U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson recently spoke with the Marietta Daily Journal editorial staff, submitted to the Rome News-Tribune. And it's time to put aside the idea that one side or another should "own" the issue and thus take the blame for any problems or the credit for successes.

"So, we're starting from a really good base", Trump told reporters during his Cabinet meeting at the White House. "I think he will bring some order and discipline to the West Wing", said Senator Susan Collins, (R) Maine.

John McCain votes no on the GOP's 'skinny repeal' healthcare bill early Friday morning.
