What's Congress Voting On? Week of June 26, 2017

by Countable | 6.26.17

Immigration and healthcare will take center stage in Congress this week before lawmakers adjourn for a week-long Fourth of July recess.

The House will cast at least three recorded votes this week, including one on a bill reforming medical malpractice lawsuits involving federally-subsidized care that'd been slated for a vote on the day the Republican baseball practice was attacked by a gunman and Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot. It will also take up immigration bills, including Kate's Law which would strengthen penalties for unauthorized immigrants who repeatedly reenter the country and a bill to detain unauthorized immigrants convicted of drunk driving while they await deportation hearings.

The Senate is planning to vote on its revision to the House-passed American Health Care Act this week, although the timing of the vote hasn't been announced yet. On Monday it'll vote to confirm Kristine Svinicki to be a Member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Check here throughout the week to see the vote results and updates to the schedule.

    Please vote no on the latest version of the health care bill, as it is devastating to Medicare, and anyone but the extremely rich. Please vote in the best interests of those that you represent. Thank you.

    What does health care means to the law makers in this country? The sick and disabled are the most suffering now, I would like to see this country take serious look at how the private company are getting richer on the experience of the sick and disabled people who lay wherever a care giver leave them because they are total care laying in you own mess for hours, while greedy bosses live high.

    What made America great is its ideals and democratic government. We should all have equal opportunities in our country. Sadly, we are excluding immigrants from the American dream!!! Let's protect ourselves but we should open our hearts . Healthcare should be a right in this country. Why should the rich be the only ones to have full access to healthcare!!!

    I understand that Republicans would like to follow through with their promise to repeal and replace the ACA. However, you need to remember the rest of your promise, that you would NOT cut Medicaid, that you would protect Medicare, that you would be sure to cover all Americans, that no one would loose their healthcare and that the cost would be affordable. The only way you should support the replacement of the ACA is if you follow through with your promise. The Senate bill does not keep your promise and the American people will remember.

    This is the most reprehensible, disgusting, unchristian piece of legislation to come out of the pro Russian GOP. It was clearly written to poke Obama in the eye even if thousands will die, and they will. Sen. Grassley was given the opportunity to amend the ACA. I'm positive the Senate's Dear Leader will not allow hearings, debate, amendments. That sounds like Communism to me. Oh wait, we have a pro Communist president so I guess it's ok to block an inclusive process. You are picking on those most vulnerable to disease and sickness. You should be ashamed of yourselves. We are watching. There will be other elections - unless there is a pro Communist block to those as well. Maybe it's time to rename the GOP the Grand Old Pinkos.

    Please vote no on the Senate's version of healthcare. It totally takes away coverage of people that need it the most. Insurance companies should not be dictating to our government. This should be the will of the people. Why is it the richest nation of the world cannot provide healthcare for their citizens. Election time will be here in a few short yrars.

    Please vote NO on GOP & Sen McConnell's super-secret, cruel healthcare plan. It is a disgrace that they have included a significant tax break for the wealthiest Americans at the cost of discarding our most needy children, elderly, disabled and special need families! They should be ashamed!

    The current iteration of the healthcare proposal is unacceptable. It displaces millions of Americans and benefits the wealthiest. If you truly represent the common, working, middle class of your constituents you will not support this measure.

    Here is how free market healthcare works. You get sick, really sick. Your new insurance raises your rates, has a lifetime cap, etc... TRUMPCARE. As I said, you are really sick. You spend all your savings, go bankrupt, loose your house and possessions then die. Surviving family members doomed to poverty. Here is how the free market part works; the wealthy buy all your stuff for a few cents on the dollar. I'm sure the honorable Christian right can find a verse in the New Testament where Jesus said this is the way to treat people. Ain't America Wonderful.

    I urge you to vote no on the American Health Care Act. It needs further, transparent, inclusive improvement to rise to the level of an improvement upon ACA and/or an approximation of the President's promises regarding healthcare for the American people.
