The strategic seating chart from the White House meeting with GOP senators


"I think, probably, the best strategy would be to have just a clean repeal vote with a two-year window before it kicks in and then those two years have Democrats and Republicans come together and work on a replacement", Congressman Massie said.

"We're still working toward getting at least 50 people in a comfortable place", McConnell told reporters.

US Senate Republican leaders have delayed the vote on repealing and replacing Obamacare until after next week's Fourth of July holiday due to a lack of party support.

FYI: McConnell can only afford to lose just two GOP senators in order for the bill to pass and be sent to President Trump to sign into law.

"We know where some of the problems are with the Affordable Care Act and how we can try to get that done in a bipartisan way". While removing health coverage from 20 plus million Americans, it funds an $800 billion tax cut, including retroactive payments, for millionaires.

Vice-President Mike Pence could provide the crucial vote needed to break a tie. Republicans now have a majority in the Senate, as they hold 52 seats. Under Obamacare, those who do not purchase healthcare are levied a tax and many Americans have to pay high deductibles.
