McConnell faces a challenge passing health care in Senate

'Dems would do it no doubt!'

That's not how government works, so Senate Republicans need to do the right thing, and continue to ignore Donald Trump.

While Republicans haven't yet released their tax proposal, House Republicans' health care bill was created to meet the legislative rules required to pass the Senate with a simple majority.

According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, only 21% of voters approve of the Republican "wealthcare, not a healthcare bill" which passed the House of Representatives earlier this month and is derisively known as Trumpcare. Through reconciliation, the party can approve its plans with only a majority vote in the Senate, in which it controls 52 of 100 seats. "I think that's what fundamentally changes the Senate".

The Senate Republicans voted in April to lower the number of votes needed to confirm Supreme Court nominees to 51, leading directly to Neil Gorsuch's confirmation. "Obviously the use of the filibuster and the rules of the Senate are ultimately up to Sen". He is and always has been someone who believes that he makes the rules while other people follow them. Democrats unanimously oppose the AHCA and Senate Republicans are divided over the bill.

The GOP plan now rests on a repeal of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, and much of the spending associated with it, and a new set of provisions offering financial assistance and incentives for people to obtain health coverage.
