Donald Trump says Congress not 'that far off' passing Obamacare replacement

As one of five Republican senators that announced opposition to the bill in its current form, Paul said he would consider voting for partial repeal of Obamacare, if there's a stalemate, but argued the Senate bill "isn't anywhere close to repeal". That was my term.

However, unlike the hardliners opposiing the bill, Heller said he can't support the current version of the legislation because he believes it goes too far in cutting the expansion of Medicaid and would likely would take away health care coverage from millions of Americans and tens of thousands of Nevadans.

"The health care bill would be so great if the Democrats and Republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it so that everybody is happy with it", Trump complained on the "Fox and Friends" program, in a previously taped interview broadcast early today. That's because unanimous opposition is expected from Democrats in a chamber in which Republicans hold a narrow 52-48 majority. "They're doing the same old Washington thing, throwing more money at the problem".

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. Mike Lee and Texas Sen.

Collins said another seven to eight senators including herself remain troubled about the possible Medicaid cuts. The Senate bill would provide for expanded tax-free Health Savings Accounts, and it would also eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood for one year.

"But if those can be addressed, I will", he said.

Already five Republican senators have said they can not vote for their party's plan as it stands now, with four them saying it does not go far enough to curb provisions under the Obama law and one saying the cuts in healthcare payments for the poor go too far. "I'm not voting for something that looks just like Obamacare". "We could well be in all night a couple of nights working through what will be an open amendment process and I think that at least is good".

"I don't think we're that far off..." Famous last words, right?

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

President Donald Trump says he doesn't think congressional Republicans are "that far off" on passing a health overhaul to replace what he's calling "the dead carcass of Obamacare".

"What's driving this is a tax cut that Republicans insisted on of about $700 billion for the wealthiest people in America and the pharmaceutical companies", Durbin told "Fox News Sunday".

Schumer said Democrats have been clear they will cooperate with Republicans if they agree to drop a repeal of the Affordable Care Act and instead work to improve it.

The Trump administration is reminding the Republicans that the Senate bill fulfills several 2016 campaign promises. Johnson spoke on NBC's "Meet the Press".
