Ted Cruz: New health care bill doomed in the Senate without changes

Allison Shelley
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz gave a pessimistic prediction Wednesday for the new House Republican health care bill's chances in the Senate — though he said the bill's fate would be improved with some changes.
"The current draft in the House is a draft about which I have significant concerns," he told reporters on a conference call. "As drafted, I do not believe this bill would pass the United States Senate. But I am encouraged and optimistic that we can resolve these differences."
Cruz's comments come hours before he and his wife, Heidi Cruz, are scheduled to have dinner at the White House with President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump. Cruz said the purpose of the dinner, which was arranged several weeks ago, is “social” but that he expects the health care plan to come up.
