Kansas House to debate school funding proposal

The Democratic opposition, meanwhile, emphasized the negative consequences for people in light of the CBO analysis, focusing particularly on the loss of coverage for tens of millions of citizens.

The agency has already issued two reports on earlier versions of the GOP health care bill, but lawmakers continued to make changes up until the last minute to secure enough votes for passage.

That compares with 28 million under age 65 who would lack insurance that year under the current health law signed by President Barack Obama.

The Texas Senate approved SB 5 in March and on Tuesday the state House of Representatives preliminarily approved the measure.

Opponents say, although Republicans have expanded access to their health care discussions, their initial decision to name an all-male roster raises red flags. A full repeal of the 2012 tax cuts would potentially generate about $1.4 billion over two years.

He added, "Whatever CBO says about the House bill today, this much is absolutely clear: the status quo under Obamacare is completely unacceptable and totally unsustainable". The tax is applied to wages over $200,000 for an individual and over $250,000 for a married couple. However, Coleman, the bill's author, said the Senate's efforts were all for naught.

Congress' official budget analyst is projecting that the House Republican health care bill would produce 23 million more uninsured people and costly, perhaps unaffordable coverage for the seriously ill.

During the hearing, Democrats criticized the proposal, partly because of an increase in taxes on health care.

HB2433 passed the House 52-47.

"I always said we need to stay focused on one very important goal, and that is reducing costs, premiums", said Sen.

Senate Republicans have been holding closed-door meetings to try writing their own health care overhaul.

The Kansas House gave the new school finance bill final approval on an 84 to 39 vote Thursday morning after initially agreeing to the new formula the day before.

The Republican-led House on May 4 narrowly approved its own legislation to overhaul the US healthcare system and dismantle major parts of the Obamacare law that was Democratic former President Barack Obama's signature legislative achievement.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York, left, accompanied by Sen. And House lawmakers could follow through on threats to kill off dozens of Senate bills. The House bill would halt higher federal payments for the Medicaid expansion created by the 2010 health law by 2020. That was a knock on 11th-hour changes Republicans made in the bill to gain conservatives' votes by letting states get waivers to boost premiums on the ill and reduce coverage requirements. There are only five days left in 2017's legislative session before lawmakers adjourn until 2019, the Dallas News reports, and the war to get the thing passed is playing out not across party lines but within the Republican party itself, as more conservative Republicans push for the bill's passing while others worry about the possible negative outcomes the bill could have on business.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has said he will only rely on Republican votes, making his margin of error razor thin (he can stand to lose only two members). John Barrasso, R-Wyo., meets with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, May 23, 2017, following after a Republican policy luncheon.
