Healthcare industry analysts scrambled to figure out how a revised Senate GOP healthcare bill released Monday morning would distribute federal funding among the states and loosen protections for Americans with pre-existing medical conditions.Meanwhile, a Senate Finance Committee hearing Monday afternoon to consider the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act had to be delayed while protesters loudly chanted calls to protect Medicaid, which would be capped and cut...
Maine Sen. Susan Collins appeared to deliver the death blow to the latest Senate GOP bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, announcing Monday she opposes it and calling it "deeply flawed." Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) came out against the Graham-Cassidy bill Friday, and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said he couldn't support the revised version of the bill released Monday morning because its healthcare block grants are far too large.
The shape of a large part of the U.S. healthcare system may be determined by a single GOP senator this week. Nearly all healthcare stakeholder groups and some governors, including from red states, are pressing Republican senators to oppose the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. They warn the bill, unveiled on Sept. 13, would leave tens of millions more Americans uninsured and gut protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
