Could “Skinny Bill” Become Law?

July 27, 2017

There is no way that a number of Republican Senators are going to vote for the “skinny bill” if there is a chance that the measure could actually become law.  The reason is that it is dreadful and so very damaging for the American citizen.

As Republican senators seek assurances that the bill they are being asked to vote on won’t become law, the House majority leader, Kevin McCarthy of California, may have sent shivers down a spine or two in the upper chamber with this announcement.

“While last votes are currently scheduled to take place tomorrow, Members are advised that — pending Senate action on health care — the House schedule is subject to change. All Members should remain flexible in their travel plans over the next few days. Further information regarding potential additional items will be relayed as soon as possible.”

That doesn’t sound like a man preparing for lengthy House-Senate negotiations on a comprehensive health care bill. So maybe the “skinny repeal” could become law after all?

@SenJohnMcCain on House just passing the skinny repeal bill: “I’m very worried about it and I would be worried about the product.”
