    McCain is getting the credit, but these women are the ones who really saved Obamacare
    Sens. Murkowski and Collins have always stuck to their principles

    Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is grabbing headlines after he voted “no” on the Senate’s so-called “skinny repeal” bill to roll back Obamacare.
    Even though Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Susan Collins (R-ME) arguably played a more pivotal role in the bill’s demise, most major outlets are now hailing McCain as a hero ...

    Trump threatens insurer payments — and health care enjoyed by Congress

    WASHINGTON — President Trump on Saturday indicated he will make good on a months-old threat to destabilize the health insurance market if Senate Republicans cannot repeal and replace major elements of the Affordable Care Act.
    The first part of the ultimatum likely refers to cost-sharing reduction payments made by the federal government to insurers, which in turn offer discounted plans for many low- or middle-income Americans buying plans through ACA marketplaces ...

    Obamacare repeal bill: It is 'the beginning of the unravelling' of Republican support for Donald Trump, says political strategist


    US political analysts are calling the latest failure to repeal Obamacare in the Senate "the beginning of the unravelling" of Republican support for Donald Trump.
    During a panel discussion on the President’s “skinny repeal bill”, which was voted down by a thin margin of 51-49 after three GOP rebellions led by Senator John McCain, CNN commentator Margaret Hoover warned that “Trump is clearly acting on his own; he’s not listening to anybody” ...

    RETIRE, MITCH! TRUMP THREATENS MCCONNELL OVER OBAMACARE DISASTER
    The president escalates his war of words with the G.O.P. leader


    ... It was perhaps Trump’s most overt threat yet in a week-long feud with McConnell, who criticized Trump’s understanding of the lawmaking process during a speech in Kentucky on Monday. “Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before, and, I think, had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process,” ...

    ... Several surveys show health care cost and availability are a top concern of voters heading into the November midterm elections, with some key indicators getting worse instead of better. Recent research by Deutsche Bank found that health care has been the most-Googled political topic so far in President Trump’s first term, followed by Mueller (the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 elections) and immigration; in an April YouGov/HuffPost poll, health care was the top voter concern, followed by the economy, gun policies and immigration.
