As Congress returns to work, Senate health care bill faces uncertain future

Members of Congress return from their July 4th recess this week with no apparent head-way on the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act.

If you missed it over the weekend on Policy Watch’s News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon, Brendan Riley with the Justice Center’s Health Advocacy Project explains in clear terms why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is struggling to find the votes needed to pass their bill to replace the Affordable Care Act. (Click below to hear the full radio interview.)


And with just three weeks until Congress’ August recess, President Trump tweeted Monday he cannot imagine they would dare to leave Washington without ‘a beautiful new HealthCare bill fully approved and ready to go.’

    My husband and I are conservative and very concerned abouth the health care bill….We need

    to get rid of Obama care and replace as soon as possible, leaving the opportunity to change

    parts of it that are not working.
