Newest opponent to Cassidy health bill? Louisiana's governor

Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, would, among other things, replace federal funding received by states through the ACA with block grants through 2026.

"I support a plan that responsibly and adequately funds block grants to states and provides maximum flexibility and control to states", Haslam added.

The new bill has until September 30th to pass and take advantage of the rules that will allow a simple-majority vote. Alabama lawmakers have been vocal in their calls for repeal of the law, but they should be cognizant that this state - both because of high poverty and widespread health problems - needs robust federal assistance with health care. According to the senator, the bill could see bipartisan support.

Under the provisions of Cassidy-Graham, Medicaid funding will be given as a lump sum to each state.

He's promoting his efforts to address New Jersey's opioid epidemic. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Patty Murray, D-Wash., are working on a bill that would strengthen the ACA by appropriating money for health subsidies that help low-income families; Trump has threatened to end those payments administratively.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says they'll release a preliminary score of the "Graham-Cassidy" bill next week.

Republicans want to abolish President Obama's law, which expanded insurance but did not curb rising medical costs.

And this bill, Kimmel said, does "none of those things".

Collins said she preferred a push by the top Republican and top Democrat on the health committee - Sen. "Ends Ocare!" Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning. Lindsey Graham of SC are co-sponsoring a bill to repeal Obamacare - Vox's Matthew Yglesias called it the party's "final stab" at repealing that legislation.

Jimmy Kimmel ripped into Republican Sen. Ran Paul for opposing the bill. Rand Paul, an ardent conservative who says this new repeal effort, like others, doesn't go far enough. But in a sign he remained short of votes, McConnell refused on Tuesday to commit to bringing the legislation up for a vote.

Baker was asked about the Graham-Cassidy bill (before it gained such recent momentum) when he testified before the Senate in Washington, D.C., earlier this month on ways to stabilize insurance rates.
