Senator Ron Johnson: 'We should not be voting on [AHCA] next week'

Senator Ron Johnson: 'We should not be voting on [AHCA] next week'

Unless those holdouts can be swayed, their numbers are more than enough to torpedo the measure developed in private by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and deliver a bitter defeat for the president.

"It's hard for me to see the bill passing this week", Collins said.

The Republican health care bill is uniformly opposed by Democratic Senators, but could pass without them if Republicans line up. The conservative coalition of Lee, Cruz, Johnson, and Paul swiftly issued a statement criticizing the bill, which they argue doesn't go far enough in dismantling the Affordable Care Act.

McConnell may be pushing for speedy passage because that disunity is only getting worse.

Despite Trump appearing to suggest he had used the word "mean" to describe his own party's healthcare bill, the president appeared more concerned with outlining who coined the description.

In addition to Heller, Republicans expected to offer some pushback against the Senate bill include Maine's Susan Collins and Ohio's Rob Portman. Several other Republicans, including moderate Susan Collins of ME, are still undecided about the legislation.

But Gov. Scott Walker said late last week that he supported Johnson's position.

A fifth GOP senator has come out against the Senate Republicans' health care bill, which can only afford to have two GOP senators vote against it. The deep cuts to Medicaid likely mean about 20 million Americans will lose their health insurance, including 4.5 million Californians.

At the time, Ms Mukerjea, who presented her daughter as her sister to friends, said Ms Bora had moved to the US. Investigators also claim that they are looking at "a financial dispute" as a motive for Ms Bora's murder.

Senator Bill Cassidy (R-L.A.) is a physician who worked with low income patients.

Hospital stocks have been under pressure from the possibility of health-care reform because they have been more profitable under Obamacare, which the Congressional Budget Office said would result in 23 million more Americans with insurance over a decade than under the House GOP plan.

And if it were the greatest bill ever proposed in mankind, we wouldn't get a vote and that's a bad thing.

"Well, they are also four good guys and they are four friends of mine", said Trump.

Trump said that each of the lawmakers would have a chance to negotiate a better deal.
