Fighting for Healthcare

Three Republican senators announced their opposition to the current draft of the Senate health care bill Tuesday afternoon, shortly after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell decided to delay a vote on the plan until after the July 4 recess.

In a joint statement Tuesday, Capito and Portman said they opposed the bill in part because of concerns they have about the affect its Medicaid policies would have on the opioid epidemics in their states.

Portman said in a statement on June 22 that he had "real concerns about the Medicaid policies in the bill," but wanted to see a CBO score before deciding whether he would support the bill.

Dean Heller, a Nevada Republican who came out in opposition to the Senate health care bill, saying the Republican "has decided to come back to the table to negotiate."

America First Policies last week announced its intentions to run ads against Heller, an unusual move against a member of the president's own party, after Heller said in a press conference*the Senate bill is "simply not the answer."

"America First Policies is pleased to learn that Senator Dean Heller has decided to come back to the table to negotiate with his colleagues on the Senate bill," America First Policies spokeswoman Erin Montgomery said in a statement.
