Trump hits 'so-called Republicans' as health bill withers”

He said nothing about whether he would bring the repeal bill to a vote, leaving open the option of letting the measure simply die if more firm votes for it can not be nailed down. Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, said.

"It found, as I suspected would be the case, that it would have a negative impact on millions of Americans who are now insured, so it was the final piece of the puzzle that I had been waiting to confirm", Collins told reporters outside her Senate office.

The Senate will not vote this week on the Republicans' latest effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, sidelining efforts for the foreseeable future to see through a key Republican priority.

"So yes, we're a little frustrated that the Senate has not acted on a seminal promise, health care", House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Tuesday, adding, "By the way - Obamacare's collapsing". "Sweeping reforms to our health care system and to Medicaid can't be done well in a compressed time frame, especially when the actual bill is a moving target". 3 GOP Senate leader, said Monday, after Collins joined a small but pivotal cluster of Republicans saying they're against the measure.

"We make that care effectively, but we've had a hard time articulating what we are for until now". Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana - called for Obamacare to be broken down into block grants that would be distributed to states. GOP Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Texas' Ted Cruz have said they oppose the measure, though Cruz aides said he was seeking changes that would let him vote yes.

"Health care, as far as I am concerned, is over", Sen. That is why we believe Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson is needed and will eventually pass.

Senator Collins, one of three Republican senators who opposed the last repeal attempt in July, described the latest plan as "deeply flawed".

"It took 18 months to pass Obamacare".

But as arrests were made Republican Senator Susan Collins appears to have doomed her own party's efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act by refusing to give it her support.

McConnell says Sanders' plan would "rip" health insurance from people. But Republican leaders in the Senate are conceding that their prospects for repealing the law are dismal.

Rushed into consideration with just days left for approval by a simple majority before a procedural deadline, Graham-Cassidy would have replaced ACA subsidies and Medicaid funding with grants to the states, likely returning tens of millions of Americans to the ranks of the uninsured.
