The Senate will delay a procedural vote to begin debate on the Republican Health Care bill until after the July Fourth recess, CNN reports.

"We're going to talk and we're going to see what we can do", the president said. All it clearly indicates is that McConnell and the Republican leadership weren't confident they'd have the votes by the end of this week.

Whether or not one believes the forecast for the Senate bill, it is a serious obstacle to getting 50 Republicans to vote for the Senate bill.

Next to Collins was Sen. "It's really on meltdown - and we're going to try and solve the problem". Additionally, low-income and older Americans would end up paying more for insurance, the CBO projected.

"What they're basically saying at the Congressional Budget Office is that, if you're not going to force people to buy Obamacare, if you're not going to force people to buy something they don't want, then they won't buy it", said our nation's foremost P90X enthusiast. In this case, both have two specific, and related, concerns causing them heartburn on the health bill: The prevalence of opioid addiction in their states, and their constituents' reliance on Medicaid.

"I would not bet against Mitch McConnell", his House counterpart, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., told reporters.

Many of the Republican senators who met with Trump Tuesday are hesitant to support the new plan, and sought answers from the president.

Republican Senators were invited to the White House Monday afternoon to discuss health care legislation.

That is the number of Republican senators who must back the bill for it to survive, with all Democrats opposed. Ron Johnson, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. That was particularly a concern for senators like Susan Collins of ME or Dean Heller from Nevada or Shelley Moore Capito from West Virginia. "I will say that I have so many fundamental problems with the bill that have been confirmed by the CBO report that it's hard for me to see how any tinkering is going to satisfy my fundamental and deep concerns about the impact of the bill". But he added, "If we don't get it done, it's just going to be something that we're not going to like, and that's okay".

While the House of Representatives narrowly passed a measure last month to replace Obamacare, the Senate version stalled on Tuesday as a small but potentially crippling group of senators held out.

These lawmakers range from moderate to conservative Republicans, and include senators who were just re-elected and a couple facing tough re-election fights. Furthermore, as I understand things, it provides a basis for characterizing the legislation as a spending bill, thus rendering it immune to filibuster under the "reconciliation". He said that's because Democrats were hell bent to prevent repeal of former President Barack Obama's signature health care law. She's always been a question mark on how she would vote on the bill, and she told CNN Tuesday morning that she's "concerned about the bill in the form that it is now".

U.S. Sen. Rob Portman has announced his opposition to the current Senate health care bill after days of political pummeling that ended with the vote delayed. "I think we will find that, over a 10-year period, Medicaid funding will be significantly curtailed".

Since that time, Republicans have done everything in their power to criticize and remove the law, voting 60 times in Congress to have it repealed during Obama's eight years in office. After the PAC announced they would be launching the campaign, McConnell called White House Chief-of-Staff Reince Priebus and said the attack ads were "beyond stupid".

"As drafted, the Senate health care bill is not the right fix for West Virginia, and I can not support it". At the same time, West Virginia has the largest Medicaid population in the country.
