Republican Sen. Johnson and Independent Sen

Sen. Rand Paul, one of the key Republicans senators in the ongoing health care battle, said on Sunday that his party has "promised too much" with trying to fix the health care system and assuring that the cost of premiums will be lowered.

"It would be so great if the Democrats and Republicans could get together and wrap their arms around it, and come up with something that everyone is happy with", Trump said.

Johnson framed his call to delay the Senate vote on the American Health Care Act as a bid for transparency, arguing that it would give the public more time to see what the bill really entails. The bill proposes phasing out federal funding to states that had been used to expand the program under the Obama administration.

Trump bemoaned the lack of help from Democrats on health care.

The GOP legislation would phase out the Medicaid expansion, dramatically curb Medicaid spending and repeal ObamaCare taxes and its mandate to buy insurance. "But I think we're going to get it. Action is absolutely vital", Price said.

She also pushed back on the White House's line that the bill would not result in Medicaid cuts. "We're very confident that the Senate bill will get through", Conway said.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), speaking on ABC's "This Week", said he believed the bill has a "50-50" chance of passing. As of Sunday, Johnson is joined by fellow Republican Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and Dean Heller in standing against the Senate health care plan as it now exists.

She cited the dramatic cuts the bill would impose on Medicaid.

Johnson, on NBC's "Meet the Press, " urged McConnell not to "rush" a vote through the Senate, saying Americans needed time to review the 142-page proposal.

An analysis from the Congressional Budget Office is due as soon as Monday and vote by the full Senate is planned for Thursday.

Paul said he could get to a yes, if the bill went farther to repeal ObamaCare rules that drive up premiums. "It is obstruction", Trump said, as he singled out top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer for attack: "I saw Senator Schumer criticising the bill a couple weeks ago and he had no idea what was in the bill".

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

"There's no way the Republican bill brings down premiums", Paul said in an interview on ABC's "This Week". "They're not going to go down after the Republican bill.it's a false sort of over-promising".
