Dems hit secrecy of GOP health care bill, threaten delays

SeattlePI.com Tuesday, 20 June 2017
WASHINGTON (AP) — Lacking the votes to stop it, Democrats are criticizing the still-evolving Senate Republican health care bill as a stealthy measure that GOP leaders want to rush through the chamber before anyone knows what's really in it. [...] they were hoping it would have at least two effects — scare off Republicans wavering over whether to back the measure, and show liberal activists that Democrats are aggressively trying to thwart the legislation, even though they lack the votes to derail it. In these sessions lawmakers are trying to resolve internal disputes over how to reduce the insurance coverage standards that Obama's law requires, cut the Medicaid health care program for the poor and eliminate taxes Obama levied on higher earners and the medical industry. Democrats have even suggested a scenario in which Senate debate begins on a preliminary version of the GOP measure and McConnell offers the final package as a late amendment, giving Democrats little or no time to criticize it.
