Eugene Robinson

The real danger to Americans’ health is that Mitch McConnell might not fail.feedback

Chuck Schumer

It's the epitome of 'mean' to say that those without health insurance for several months have to wait even longer to get it.feedback

Larry Leavitt

The likely biggest effect of a 6-month waiting period would be to prevent some sick people from getting care immediately after signing up.feedback

Christopher S. Murphy

GOP is hiding the worst Medicaid cuts in years 11, 12, 13 and hoping CBO stays quiet.feedback

Heidi Heitkamp

You have to look at it from a mile high and they're trying to tell you we're going to keep coverage the same, no one's going to get hurt, and we're going to take billions of dollars out of health care. Once it's parsed and people have a chance to look at it, it is only going to get more difficult.feedback

Tim Phillips

There is urgency. We believe we have a window of about 12 months to get as much of it accomplished as possible before the 2018 elections grind policy to a halt. We are not committed to the Senate bill in its current form, but there is still time to make changes and we're actively working to improve it.feedback

Chris Wright

If we don't get anything done by then, the elections probably don't go very well. They may not go well anyway.feedback

Sean Lansing

If they don't make good on these promises ... there are going to be consequences, and quite frankly there should be.feedback

Dean Heller

I cannot support legislation that takes away insurance from millions of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Nevadans. Make no mistake, the Affordable Care Act does need fixing. But the bill in front of us today doesn't make those fixes.feedback

Dean Heller

I have made clear that I want to make sure the rug is not pulled out from under Nevada or the more than 200,000 Nevadans who received insurance for the first time under Medicaid expansion.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Our healthcare plan will lower premiums & deductibles - and be great healthcare!feedback

John Graves

The two bills would move, or at least substantially encourage, the use of [high deductible plans], with some assistance for premiums but no assistance for the other aspects like cost sharing, coinsurance, and deductibles. Notably these are the aspects folks have complained the most about regarding the [Affordable Care Act's] private plans.feedback

Larry Levitt

There's no question that people in the individual insurance market would end up with higher deductibles under the Senate bill, much like the House.feedback

Lanhee Chen

The focus of Republican efforts largely has been on costs. You do have a different set of issues that the two sides have been focused on, which partly explains why this has been such an intractable and difficult debate to find common ground on.feedback

Lisa Murkowski

It needs to be done right. I remain committed to ensuring that all Alaskans have access to affordable, quality health care.feedback

Patrick Toomey

The idea that there's a sector of our economy that has to permanently have a higher inflation rate than the rest of our economy is ridiculous. I think that it's absolutely essential to putting [Medicaid] on a sustainable path so that it will be there for future generations.feedback

Joni Ernst

It was just released yesterday. So, we have 142 pages to go through. I wouldn't say they are losing it.feedback

Paul Starr

This is bringing us back to where we were before 1965. There is no longer the federal commitment to back up the states in terms of health care for the poor.feedback

Zoë Carpenter - The Nation

The question is whether the GOP legislation improves on Obamacare and current coverage. It doesn't come close – unless, of course, you happen to believe that we provide too much help to the poor and elderly, and not enough tax cuts to the wealthy.feedback

Susan Collins

It isn't any one factor but it's all of those factors put together that will influence my decision.feedback

Rand Paul

I think the choices are do they want our votes or don't they not want our votes. They have to have at least two of the four of us and so that means that the bill has to get better and it has to get more to our liking.feedback

Emily Ekins - Cato Institute

They have cooler feelings toward minorities. They agree in overwhelming numbers that real Americans need to have been born in America, or have lived here most of their lives, and be Christian.feedback

John Sides

What stands out most, is the attitudes that became more strongly related to the vote in 2016: attitudes about immigration, feelings toward black people and feelings toward Muslims.feedback

Fernando Stein

Medicaid is there for families struggling from the opioid epidemic, covering treatment for parents and services for their children. Medicaid covers a grandmother's chemotherapy and a newborn baby's emergency heart surgery and a six-year-old's hearing screening and a teenager's asthma inhaler.feedback

Fernando Stein

Medicaid allows a college student with cerebral palsy to live independently. Medicaid pays for a toddler's wheelchair, and as she grows over time, it covers the next one and the one after that.feedback

Jack Ende

BCRA discriminates against providers of women's health services, cutting funding for in the awarding of federal grant funds and/or Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program funding to women's health clinics that are qualified under existing federal law for the provision of evidence-based services including, but not limited to, provision of contraception, preventive health screenings, sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment, vaccines, counseling, rehabilitation, and referrals.feedback

Rick Pollack

The Senate proposal would likely trigger deep cuts to the Medicaid program that covers millions of Americans with chronic conditions such as cancer, along with the elderly and individuals with disabilities who need long-term services and support. Medicaid cuts of this magnitude are unsustainable and will increase costs to individuals with private insurance.feedback

Fernando Stein

A 'carve-out' for children with 'medically complex' health issues does little to protect their coverage when the base program providing the coverage is stripped of its funding. Doing so forces states to chip away coverage in other ways, by not covering children living in poverty who do not have complex health conditions, or by scaling back the benefits that children and their families depend on.feedback

Paul Kawata

This bill creates a false narrative that says it will help people with pre-existing conditions, but instead it allows states to waive essential health benefits such as vital prescription drugs, mental and behavioral health services, and preventive services. The bill includes misleading 'protections' for children.feedback

Matthew M. Davis

Senate leaders present their bill as providing states with flexibility. The reality is that it will put considerable pressure on states to limit their spending on health care, including for children.feedback

Nancy Brown - American Heart Association

The Senate draft health care bill is literally heartless. Americans with pre-existing conditions will likewise suffer under this proposal because it would give states the ability to discriminate against the sick by obtaining waivers for essential benefits. States can then create their own essential benefits packages which could exclude prevention benefits, rehabilitation and rehabilitation services – all critical for people with cardiovascular disease.feedback

Jim Cramer

You can't have both of those go up. It's antithetical. That is like oil and water.feedback

Jim Cramer

I really feel that people have to recognize a vote to be able to cut back Medicaid, which is what this really is ... is a vote to be able to lose your seat whether you're in the Senate or the House. So, I think this rally was about how this thing's dead.feedback

Donald J. Trump

They're also four good guys, and they're four friends of mine. I think that they'll probably get there. We'll probably have to see. Now it's failed – it's virtually out of business – Obamacare is a disaster, and we're trying to do something in a very short period of time. I've been here for only five months. People are saying, where's the healthcare? Where's the healthcare? Well, I've done in five months what other people haven't done in years. It's a very complicated situation from the standpoint, you do something that's good for one group but bad for another. It's a very, very narrow path.feedback

Barack Obama

I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party. Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what's really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did.feedback

Mitch McConnell

No amount of 11th hour reality-denying or buck-passing by Democrats is going to change the fact that more Americans are going to get hurt unless we do something.feedback

Ted Cruz

This current draft doesn't get the job done. But I believe we can get to yes.feedback

Larry Levitt

Low-income people will end up paying higher premiums for plans that have bigger deductibles, compared to today. Older people who are now getting premium subsidies would get substantially less help, but younger people would get more.feedback

Dean Heller

[The Better Care Act] takes insurance away from tens of millions of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Nevadans. There isn't anything in this bill that would lower premiums.feedback

Simon Rosenberg

I don't think he wanted to play a major role or to get intimately involved. But it's become very personal. There comes a point where you can't stand aside. My guess is that part of the urgency of him weighing in is that a vote is happening within a week. Trump and the Republicans are drawing him in and it's to their own detriment in doing so. He's still arguably the most popular and potent political force in either party and he can have a big impact.feedback

Bill McInturff

If you look at the parties and you say, OK, Republicans are the party of the economy and change in Washington, and they have overwhelming margins on dealing with ISIS,' that's a problem for Democrats.feedback

Robert Laszewski

The penultimate question is this. Will the Medicaid rollback be enough to keep the most conservative Republican Senators onboard in the face of a truly 'Obamacare lite' approach to the individual market while not pushing the moderates off the bill – particularly Republican Senators from Medicaid expansion states?feedback

Robert Laszewski

If this isn't enough, just what would these moderate and conservative Senators expect to get.feedback

Donald J. Trump

ObamaCare is dead and we're putting a plan out today that is going to be negotiated. We will hopefully get something done, and it will be something with heart and very meaningful.feedback

Eugene Robinson

The GOP proposal is the first step in redistribution of wealth from struggling wage-earners to the rich.feedback

Simon Rosenberg

Donald Trump has invited Barack Obama into the arena. No president has trashed a former president more than Trump has trashed Obama - personally and in terms of his legacy. It's been direct, persistent and out of bounds.feedback

Chris Coons

Look, it's hard for me to believe that for something as important as a bill that would remake health care for hundreds of millions of people, that they're holding no hearings. There's a reason that President Trump called the House version of Obamacare repeal 'mean.' It's because it cuts Medicaid by too much, and it cuts Medicare by too much just to fund a tax cut. I think there's a real reason that the Republican leadership here in the Senate is hiding this bill even from its own members.feedback

Lisa Murkowski

I am not a reporter, and I am not a lobbyist, so I've seen nothing.feedback

Rand Paul

Health care is such an important thing, I think we should have debated in open, in committee hearings, have both sides bring in witnesses. If you do it on one side only, what you're setting yourself up for is failure. The public is not going to accept it if only one side does it. If you at least have open committee hearings and hear from both sides, I think that's better.feedback

Barack Obama

Simply put, if there's a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family - this bill will do you harm. And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation. So I still hope that there are enough Republicans in Congress who remember that public service is not about sport or notching a political win, that there's a reason we all chose to serve in the first place, and that hopefully, it's to make people's lives better, not worse.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out. That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!feedback

Linda J. Blumberg

They're trying to hide how much they're taking out of the program. If you put it at the end of the budget window, it doesn't look as bad. Don't be fooled. This is a very dramatic difference.feedback

Marc Goldwein

It's a very small issue in 2026 but, potentially, a very huge issue by 2040.feedback

Doug Holtz-Eakin

There's, I think, an overabundance of caution up front to make sure that markets get stabilized and coverage gets maintained to the extent possible. They made sure there's enough money in there up front to, sort of, assuage those concerns.feedback

Mitch McConnell

It's time to act because ObamaCare is a direct attack on the middle class and American families deserve better than it's failing status quo. They deserve better care. That's just what we're going to continue to work to bring them.feedback

Mitch McConnell

When legislation does come to the floor, it will present Senate Democrats with another opportunity to do what's right for the American people. They can choose to keep standing by as their failing law continues to collapse and hurt more Americans, but I hope they will join with us instead. Either way, we have to act. Because Obamacare is a direct attack on the middle class, and American families deserve better than its failing status quo – they deserve better care. That's just what we're going to continue working to bring them.feedback

Alex Seitz-Wald - National Broadcasting Company

As Democrats point fingers in the wake of Jon Ossoff's loss in a Georgia special election on Tuesday, some of them are aimed at Nancy Pelosi, the party's longtime House leader, who appeared in almost every GOP attack ad broadcast in the most expensive House race in history.feedback

Steve Schwarzman - The Blackstone Group

The reason I think we have consumer confidence at record levels and markets at record levels and business confidence at record levels [is] because the basic program the administration has is really excellent.feedback

Steve Schwarzman - The Blackstone Group

We're in the middle of a big potential tax reform and you can't really look much at anything until you see what the rules of the road are.feedback

Ron Johnson

I would find it hard to believe I will have enough time. I've made leadership well aware of the fact that I need information to make a final decision, and if I don't have the information to justify a yes vote, I won't be voting yes.feedback

Paul Ryan

Here in America, 8 out of 10 businesses file their taxes as individuals. In fact, most of our jobs come from these ... small businesses. Real tax reform ... means creating a new lower tax, specifically for small businesses, so they too can compete on a fair, level playing field.feedback

Jeremy Wanamaker

They're pushing health care hard right now, and if they even manage to get that passed, I don't see them having anything left to be able to get any sort of meaningful tax reform through.feedback

Joseph Henchman

What North Carolina did is a good model for tax reform for the United States. Find a way to broaden the base of the tax system, lower rates for everybody, and make it more pro-growth.feedback

Susan Collins

That inflater is critical, because it translates into billions of dollars over time.feedback

Rand Paul

My main concern is I promised voters that I would repeal – vote to repeal Obamacare. And everything I hear sounds like Obamacare-lite. It may well be that prices don't come down at all.feedback

Dean Heller

At first glance, I have serious concerns about the bill's impact on the Nevadans who depend on Medicaid. I will read it, share it with Governor Sandoval, and continue to listen to Nevadans to determine the bill's impact on our state. I will also post it to my website so that any Nevadans who wish to review it can do so. As I have consistently stated, if the bill is good for Nevada, I'll vote for it and if it's not – I won't.feedback

Mitch McConnell

We believe we can do better than the Obamacare status quo, and we fully intend to do so.feedback

Michael Needham

It is clear that significant portions of the Republican Party have no intention of actually repealing Obamacare despite campaigning on that objective for years. Conservatives will evaluate legislative language when it becomes available, looking particularly at whether the legislation empowers states to get out of the onerous insurance mandates imposed by Obamacare, maintains and improves the House's Medicaid reforms, and repeals Obamacare's stifling taxes.feedback

Kathleen Rice

Attacks aren't fair or justified, but GOP keeps using this playbook because they see that it works. That's a fact we can't keep ignoring.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Congrats to Karen Handel on a HUGE win in GA! Democrats lose again (0-4). Total disarray. The MAGA Mandate is stronger than ever. BIG LEAGUE.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We're 5-0 in special elections. The truth is, people love us. They haven't figured it out yet. And if Karen Handel had lost, [the media] would have blamed it on me, which is fine. He called me and I called him. He said, You know what? I felt like the forgotten man.' But he won beautifully. A lot of people didn't show up because they thought he would win.feedback

Seth Meyers

You might remember that last month, after narrowly passing their healthcare bill in the House, Republicans held a giddy celebration in the White House rose garden with President Trump, who was so happy to finally get a bill passed, no matter how unpopular, that he could hardly contain himself. But since that ceremony, you've probably heard suspiciously little about the GOP healthcare plan, and apparently, that's by design.feedback

Rob Portman

I haven't seen the draft yet. I like the idea of preexisting conditions being more firmly clarified.feedback

Shelley Moore Capito

Up to this point, I don't have any new news – tomorrow we will see it definitively – that would cause me to change that sentiment.feedback

Orrin Hatch

I don't think there is right now. It might have to be considered separately.feedback

Rand Paul

Had they not been there, it would have been a massacre.feedback

David M. Cordani - CIGNA

It's clear the legislation needs to evolve. And what we have been able to prove is that if you can engage individuals into health care, and, very importantly, connect with... physicians and professionals and better quality health care, then good things happen.feedback

Tonya Morrow

We know what their intentions are, and they are to do things for corporations, not the people they represent.feedback

Jim Jordan

We shouldn't operate in this revenue-neutral tax policy world, because that's just a fancy way of saying the tax burden is going to stay the same. We're going to shift around who pays what.feedback

Mario Schlosser

We've really got to make sure that our unique strategy around how we build networks… also works.feedback

Cynthia Cox

It is entirely possible that Centene or other insurers could move into some counties that appear to be at risk of having no insurer. Consumers in these counties shouldn't worry too much yet, as there is still time for insurers to change their service areas. Companies don't get locked in until early fall.feedback

Mario Schlosser

We are spending 98 percent of our days thinking about 'what does the product look like? What network can we build?'… and two percent worrying about the regulatory framework.feedback

Michael Marchand

I really feel for a number of our insurance companies, because it's not that they don't want to be participating. It's the uncertainty in the marketplace. As a result, we're seeing an increase in premiums because it's essentially the insurance companies hedging their bets that there may be the potential for them to have to pick up that CSR costs.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Karen Handel for Congress. She will fight for lower taxes, great health care strong security -- a hard worker who will never give up! Vote today!feedback

Sean Spicer

Trump "clearly wants a bill that has heart in it. This is an area that the president believes passionately about.feedback

Paul Ryan

I am here to tell you: We are going to get this done in 2017. You know why we're going to get this done in 2017? Because we have to get this done in 2017. … Transformational tax reform can be done, and we are moving ahead. Full speed ahead.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Democrat Jon Ossoff, who wants to raise your taxes to the highest level and is weak on crime and security, doesn't even live in district. KAREN HANDEL FOR CONGRESS. She will fight for lower taxes, great healthcare strong security-a hard worker who will never give up. VOTE TODAY. Karen Handle's opponent in #GA06can't even vote in the district he wants to represent.feedback

Vin Weber

Paradoxically, I think it will help the agenda as it will focus the members on their survival. Some will try to distance themselves from Trump, but the overriding reaction will be a desire to get some things done they can talk about.feedback

Mitch McConnell

At the end of the process, Congress will have a chance to turn the page on this failed law.feedback

Katrina vanden Heuvel

The president and the GOP are advancing harmful, hugely unpopular policies without needed scrutiny.feedback

Alex Lundry

The data accessed was not built for or used by any specific client. It is our proprietary analysis to help inform local television ad buying.feedback

Nariman Behravesh - IHS

If the current political turmoil were to escalate into a full-blown crisis, then the chances of any tax stimulus or reforms being implemented would diminish considerably.feedback

Paul Ryan

We are actually unique in the world in the way we discourage capital from coming back to America and how we incentivize off-shoring jobs. This is not the kind of exceptionalism we should aspire to…We must think differently, so that once again we make things here and export them around the world.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Karen Handel's opponent in #GA06 can't even vote in the district he wants to represent. …because he doesn't even live there! He wants to raise taxes and kill healthcare. On Tuesday, #VoteKarenHandel. I think that those concerns have only grown over time. And with a commitment to working across the aisle to get things done, to holding people in Washington accountable regardless of their political party, some fresh leaders can hopefully break through some of this nonsense.feedback

Chris Vickery

This [is] the DNA of voter analysis. This is exactly what they use to determine how someone is likely to vote on a specific issue.feedback

Mitch McConnell

The Senate will soon have a chance to turn the page on this failed law. We have to act, and we are.feedback

Mike Pence

We're going to pass the largest tax cut since the days of Ronald Reagan, and we're going to do it this year. Discussions will continue. Details are being worked out. But I can assure you with your support, and the support of our leaders in Congress, we will get tax cuts done and we will get them done this year.feedback

Mitch McConnell

This long-term Obamacare trend is not sustainable. We have to act. And we are.feedback

Chuck Schumer

If Republicans won't relent and debate their healthcare bill in the open for the American people to see, they shouldn't expect business as usual in the Senate. This radical departure from normal procedure on a bill of such consequence leaves the Senate minority with little choice but to depart from normal procedure as well.feedback

Marco Rubio

The Senate is not a place where you can just cook up something behind closed doors and rush it for a vote on the floor. Especially on an issue like this. So the first step in this may be crafted among a small group of people, but then everyone's going to get to weigh in.feedback

Peter Eckersley - Electronic Frontier Foundation

Perhaps the biggest privacy problem here is the fact that the Republicans have all this information about voters in the first place. At some point in the past, parties picked a platform and voters decided on it. But with these databases, political operations can promise very different and increasingly contradictory things to different people, and that may be turning into a serious problem for democracy.feedback

Edward J. Markey

The only thing more secret than Republicans' health care bill is Donald Trump's tax returns.feedback

Marco Rubio

The first step in this may be crafted among a small group of people, but then everyone's going to get to weigh in. You know, it's going to take days and weeks to work through that in the Senate. So I have no problem with a group of people meeting to conduct a proposal. But ultimately that proposal cannot be rushed to the floor. And I don't think the Senate rules would permit it. So it's fine if they're working on the starting point. But ultimately we're all going to see what's in it.feedback

Caitlyn Jenner

My loyalties and my fights are not going to be with the Republican party. My loyalties are with my community and fighting for my community.feedback

Caitlyn Jenner

Nobody deserves what happened out there. There's no justification for it. There's crazy people in the world – we know that … We have to minimize that kind of stuff. But, as far as the people who were injured, it's an absolute shame. Fortunately, the guy was a really bad shot. She did her job. She wasn't thinking about LGBT issues, she wasn't thinking about any of those types of things. She did her job and she did it well.feedback

Rob Restuccia

The Senate is working in secret and rushing to pass a bill. We think it's critical that Americans across the country understand what's at stake for them and their families if the U.S. Senate passes this bill.feedback

Jack Sava

There's still a lot of things that can happen, there's still a lot of forks in the road that we may not even see yet.feedback

John Kasich

You cannot write major legislation with one party, it doesn't work. Obama tried it, Obamacare is, you know, under fire every day. If Republicans do it, and they do it alone, it isn't going to last.feedback

John Hickenlooper

Ultimately governors are the ones who are going to have to implement whatever they come up with, and I think it would be unfortunate if we are not part of that process of figuring out what are the best compromises cause.feedback

Corey Stewart

That's what this election is going to help answer. He certainly was a different kind of Republican. The question is, did that start a new era in Republican politics? Or are we going to revert back to the same old same old, with more establishment candidates winning nominations?feedback

Moumita Ahmed

The left doesn't have to stay quiet because the left is talking about actual individuals who are suffering. We're not doing it by attacking people. We do it by saying the Republican party is hurting the people, and that's the truth. Do they want us to stop telling the truth?feedback

Nancy Pelosi

Tonight we will go to the game, play our hardest, but we will all be Team Scalise.feedback

William Almgren

When the economy's doing well, the country does well. My advice is: remember that.feedback

Allison Thorne

I don't watch Russia Today. We dip our toes in the water, but not in that end.feedback

Jon Ossoff

I don't think we're there. We need a full and transparent and independent assessment.feedback

Karen Handel

Look, some of you have known me. I'm a little more measured about things and sometimes that's a prudent approach.feedback

Mather Lindsay

Trump's self-inflicted wounds are my biggest disappointment. He has squandered a huge opportunity to get all that done. Someone, needs to take his Twitter away.feedback

Allison Thorne

I'm tired. It never stops. Would I like to see things get done? Yes. But I doubt they will.feedback

Sharon Huddleston

People are tense about what's going on with coverage for preexisting conditions. They're tense about how we're being seen in the world.feedback

Karen Handel

What they are focused on is what's happening with the economy, the rollback of regulations.feedback

Allison Thorne

It makes me uncomfortable when people call Trump dumb. But I can't help but thinking he's in over his head. He probably thought it'd be like it always was, his little kingdom, and he's figuring out that's not how government works.feedback

Mather Lindsay

I'm all for disruption, but most people are getting fed up with the circus show. It does make you wonder about whether single-party government makes sense. Sometimes, if the pendulum swings too far one way, it swings back.feedback

Malone Dodson

Quit paying attention to that and see the big picture. We need a good economy, good defense and good jobs and Trump's doing it.feedback

Malone Dodson

Faith, health, living condition and the economy, those are my issues. My take on Trump is: better to leave him alone. He'll straighten out and be fine.feedback

Ron Johnson

There's still a lot of work to be done. It just solves so many problems.feedback

Roger Williams

Baseball is the American game, to be able to play it, and that's why we have to play this game tonight. It's bipartisan, it's a charity, for crying out loud, it's in Washington D.C., we'll be able to honor Scalise and those others who have hurt.feedback

Seth Meyers

You know, we have a lot of fun at this show at Congress's expense, and it seems only fair they should be able to have some fun at times, which is what this annual baseball game is. And I don't often say this here on our show, but I will be pulling for the GOP so, good luck to all of you.feedback

Seth Meyers

I don't often say this here on our show, but I will be pulling for the GOP so, good luck to all of you. Also, I cannot believe that, based on how members of Congress look, that they play baseball instead of softball. I am absolutely stunned by that piece of news. I was sure that Congress was a chamber of softball bodies.feedback

Chris Sloan - Avalere Health

It's fascinating. They actually think that on average people will be paying more even though the underlying premium is less.feedback

Jeff Duncan

He asked me whether the team practicing were Republicans or Democrats. I told him that was a Republican team. He said, OK, thanks,' . Lots of residents walk dogs and exercise out there; he just seemed like one of those.feedback

Ron Johnson

My primary concern is writing a bill and not having enough time to analyze it. I don't want to get jammed. How much time do you have?feedback

Rob Portman

We need to come together around a more workable system that not only lowers costs, but also protects the most vulnerable in our society.feedback

Roy Blunt

These debates have a higher quality of intensity on detail than they would have in the past.feedback

John Cornyn

There's going to be trade-offs. We're trying to do this in a careful, thoughtful sort of way.feedback

Chris Sloan - Avalere Health

You can see promise of the lower premiums holding up. But there is nothing in this proposal that is going to lead to lower deductibles or lower cost-sharing. There is just nothing there.feedback

Joe Barton

He shot at Steve Scalise, our second baseman. He hit Steve Scalise, Scalise's security detail and the Capitol Hill police immediately returned fire, and Alexandria Police also immediately came and began to return fire. They shot the shooter. The security detail saved a lot of lives because they attacked the shooter.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Events like today are EXACTLY why we took issue with NY elites glorifying the assassination of our president.feedback

Joe Barton

Some of us were in the dugout. Some of us were on the ground. I was behind the dugout. My son Jack got under an SUV. He was very brave. Scalise's security detail and Capitol Hill police immediately began to return fire. They shot the shooter and I think the security detail saved a lot of lives because they attacked the shooter.feedback

Joe Barton

This is a charity baseball game. We played it for almost a hundred years. … I hope we continue the game. It's what, in some ways, what democracy is all about.feedback

Joe Barton

I was getting down, protecting, making sure my son was down and I did not see him when it was an active shooting situation.feedback

Joe Barton

My other son, Brad, was in the batting cage and he also was brave.feedback

Jeff Flake

All of a sudden we heard a very loud shot. Everybody thought it sounds like a gun. The gunman was over by the third base dugout with a clear view of the field and everybody on it. Then all of a sudden a couple more shots, and we knew what it was.feedback

Joe Barton

The security detail saved a lot of lives. It was scary.feedback

Mitch McConnell

I think everybody handled it well and things seem to be under control.feedback

Jeff Flake

I just didn't want her to wake up and learn the news.feedback

Jeff Flake

50 would be an understatement. He had a lot of ammo.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Everyone on that field is a public servant. Our courageous police, our congressional aides, who work so tirelessly behind the scenes with enormous devotion, and our dedicated members of Congress who represent our people. We may have our differences, but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capitol is here because, above all, they love our country. We are strongest when we are unified. We may have our differences, but we do well in times like this.feedback

Authorities are continuing to investigate the crime and the assailant has now died from his injuries. The FBI is leading the investigation and will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available. Congressman Steve Scalise, a member of House leadership, was shot and badly wounded and is now in stable condition at the hospital along with two very courageous Capitol Police offiers. At least two others were also wounded.feedback

Everyone on that field is a public servant – our courageous police, our congressional aides who work so tirelessly behind the scenes with enormous devotion and our dedicated Members of Congress who represent our people. We may have our differences but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capital is here because, above all, they love our country.feedback

Melania and I are grateful for their heroism and praying for the swift recovery of all victims. Congressman Scalise is a friend, and a very good friend. He's a patriot and a fighter. He will recover from this assault.feedback

I was absolutely stunned, just the sheer quantity of files I had acquired. You could just go to the root of where they were hosting all the files and just download everything without logging in.feedback

You're asking if we ever 'responded' to a report/study that was done more than 10 years ago? Doesn't make sense to me.feedback

They said: Take a look at our processes, take a look at our technology, and give us your opinion. I assigned some people from our Information Security center to work on it.feedback

She seemed very interested in getting this, at the time. Once she was in office for a few months, we heard nothing.feedback

I got Steve Scalise's phone and called his wife. I didn't want her to wake up and hear the news, not know what was going on.feedback

Finally, the shooter was shot behind home plate as he was circling around to the first base dugout where there were a number of US congressmen and other folks. Our security detail was able to incapacitate him at that point. I don't know if he [the shooter] was dead. He was wounded. I don't know how many times he was wounded.feedback

I believe that each member knows. And everyone doesn't want exactly the same thing.feedback

Shooter attacked a GOP baseball practice. Rifle. 50+ shots fired. 5 hit including Steve Scalise. I am not shot.feedback

Mo Brooks

I see a rifle, and I see a little bit of a body and then I hear another bam and I realize there's still an active shooter. At the same time I hear Steve Scalise over at 2nd base scream – he was shot.feedback
