Summary: ” This is feeding the roots of Obamacare, putting a band-aid on it, throwing some more tax money at it, and calling it a day.” “Currently for a variety of reasons, we aren’t ready to vote for this bill but we’re open to negotiation and obtaining more information prior to it’s brought to the floor,” the statement said. Senate Republicans rolled out a new health care bill today while trying to attract the 50 votes needed to pass this bill. “There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current health care system but it doesn’t appear this draft as written will accomplish the almost all important promise that we made to Americans: to repeal Obamacare, and lower their health care costs.” Those senators — Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mike Lee of Utah, Ted Cruz of Texas and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin — issued a joint statement about their position. “We see a brand new entitlement program, which is called a stabilization fund, which is over with $100 billion that’s really taxpayer money being given to companies that make $15 billion a year profit.” He said he needs more “information.” That means if all Democrats vote against the bill, only three no votes from Republicans would torpedo it. Four Senate Republicans announced Thursday that they now oppose the health care bill to repeal, and replace Obamacare that was released only hours earlier, putting its passage in jeopardy.”
