What's Congress Voting On? Week of July 24, 2017

by Countable | 7.24.17

Congress convenes Monday with a vote to start debate on Senate Republicans' healthcare bill potentially occurring as early as Tuesday.

The House will vote on the top secret intelligence authorization Monday, along with several veterans affairs and small business bills. Tuesday will bring votes on a Congressional Review Act regulatory repeal and a sanctions package aimed at Russia, North Korea, and Iran. The remainder of the week will be focused on the Make America Secure Appropriations Act, which doles out funding normally included in four separate appropriations bills, a resolution calling on Iran to release American citizens it's holding, and other legislation.

The Senate will vote Monday to confirm a deputy secretary of the interior. Its agenda for the rest of the week is yet to be announced, although all eyes will be on a potential motion to proceed to the GOP's healthcare bill that could come as early as Tuesday.

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

    How can you, in good conscience, vote for a bill you haven't read or has even been scored by the CBO.

    Senate healthcare fiasco. Senators Graham and Scott, I urge you to vote "no" on even considering a repeal or repeal and replace. No transparency (you GOP seem to revel in secrecy) and of all the proposals I've seen, any yes vote will be a travesty on your and my neighbors and friends. Do your job, to serve those of us that have no other voice, not your rich buddies and corporate donors. Just do what's right and vote no on whatever train wreck you are secretly considering. Sincerely, Jerry Peace

    The Healthcare bill is an absolute disaster and disgrace. You must vote no against it and take steps towards Medicaid for All. Make us proud and represent the people.

    I urge you to vote 'no' on a bill that's made in haste, probably hasn't been fully read, and hasn't been scored by the CBO. This seems like a railroad job to me.

    How can you, in good conscience, vote on a bill you haven't read? Or that the CBO has even scored? Stop sticking with your party line and vote to protect your constituents. Vote no on the healthcare bill--whether the vote is to repeal and replace or just repeal.

    No matter what bill shows up to be voted on , it will kill people so that the rich have more money..... wealthcare. Everthing the republicans are doing is against democracy. Disabled people are being arrested for begging for their lives at their representatives offices. People forget that before the ACA was enacted, people would not leave their jobs (and insurance). republicans say "let's go back to that". What they forget is that they caused a great recession that Obama got us mostly out of but citizens united kept wages down . Now wages are so low that people need more than one job to exist. Added to that is the fact that medical bills have skyrocketed and one catastrophe will end up throwing you out of your house. We were promised lower deductibles and better healthcare and the republican congress is doing their best to give us the exact opposite. We have a despotic family in the white house demanding pardons for his and his families crimes, all the while claiming healthcare cost $12 in his interview. This is insane "we the people" deserve better then the republican sham of a wealthcare bill. DO THE RIGHT THING! Do not vote for these bills.

    Marco Rubio please surprise us and vote no on this heinous healthcare bill. How can you vote yes on the bill that will put millions of Americans at risk? This is not the solution to Obamacare. Be better!

    I urge you to vote no on the healthcare bill. How about actually researching ways to fix and improve the Affordable Care Act instead of trying to repeal the entire law?

    Until you've read and understand the benefits and repercussions of the healthcare bill, you should not vote FOR it. You're priorities are to your constituents as well as the betterment of our country.

    Voting to proceed to vote on ..... something? A 'Yes' vote would be a travesty, not to mention, an embarrassment. I would fully support a 'Yes' vote to debate the various proposals out there and there are many. They, at least, need an open discussion and debate -which, I believe, is why we are (should be) proud to be a democracy. Having Sen. McConnell make this decision for you (Sen. Graham and Sen. Scott) should be an insult and voted down.

    Why would McConnel wait until the Healthcare Bill is brought to the floor for a vote to reveal exactly which bill it is? And it appears there won't be any debate before the vote is called from what I'm reading different places. (Not sure if this is true or not.) I'm sick and tired of the Republican majority pushing through legislation that no one has read and then they pass it with their majority party line vote. The people they are supposed to represent are betrayed and pay a heavy price. What is wrong with these people in Washington? Don't they have any compassion or conscience left at all? We will remember what they have done to us come election time in 2018.

    If you vote to repeal without a good replacement which keeps people from losing insurance, you deserve to be voted out of office.
