Folks as I have been saying the last few days, this bill will either pass or fail based on Dean Heller from NV. The issue for Heller is that the Governor of NV, Sandoval, stated yesterday that he didn’t see much difference in the new bill versus the old bill. His entire complaint is the Medicaid expansion being cut. This has left Heller in a terrible predicament in NV. Everyone including the Republican Governor are against it. Our President can’t stand this POS Sandoval. He is sending our VP, Mike Pence, out to meet with him to get him to come over and support the bill which will allow Heller cover in the state. Keep in mind Heller is up for reelection in 2018.
The Ohio Governor whose is another POS blasted the bill! The good news is that his voice is DEAD in OHIO! Our Lion’s approval rating went up to a +13% margin between approve versus disapprove in July. Portman will not listen to this moron!
From the article linked above:
PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval on Friday expressed deep reservations about Senate Republicans’ latest Obamacare repeal bill, but he wouldn’t go as far as to say he opposes the revised legislation.
The moderate Republican said he will meet privately with Vice President Mike Pence, who will deliver a speech to governors later today. Earning Sandoval’s support for the legislation is seen as crucial for securing a vote from Sen. Dean Heller, the most vulnerable GOP incumbent facing reelection next year.
“I want to protect the 210,000 lives in Nevada that are living happier and healthier lives,” said Sandoval, adding he still needs to review the legislation with his staff. “That’s been my primary concern all along.”
Ohio Gov. John Kasich, one of the most outspoken Republican critics of the GOP repeal effort, blasted the updated bill on Friday morning and urged congressional leaders to strike a bipartisan compromise.
“The Senate plan is still unacceptable,” he said. “Its cuts to Medicaid are too deep and at the same time it fails to give states the ability to innovate in order to cope with those reductions.”
