Sasse: Senate Healthcare Bill Not A Repeal Of Obamacare

LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


By Phillip Stucky

Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska asserted that the Senate bill to replace the Affordable Care Act isn’t a true repeal during a retreat Sunday.

The senator made the comments during a Koch foundation retreat according to Reuters White House Correspondent James Oliphant. Sasse asserted the measure was simply a “Medicaid reform package,” during a session closed to the press.

He later added that he didn’t have anything to announce about his official position on the health care plan during an event attended by members of the press. “This session is on the record, right? There’s press here? I have nothing to announce,” Sasse said officially on the record.

Five Republican Senators, Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah, Dean Heller of Nevada, Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin all declared they didn’t support the Senate plan as it was currently written, but indicated that they had an interest in negotiating the final language of the bill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell indicated an interest in holding a vote on the measure Thursday, but it remains unclear if Republicans will have enough votes to pass the plan by then.
