Senate Republicans reluctant to rush vote on healthcare bill

He becomes the fifth GOP senator to say he will not back the bill as it is now written, and the first in Senate Republicans' so-called moderate wing.

Sanders added: "There is no way on God's Earth that this bill should be passed this week". Meanwhile, the Senate's number two Republican says the Senate is on pace to hold a key procedural vote on Wednesday.

"There isn't anything in this bill that would lower premiums", he said.

McConnell and other leaders, meanwhile, are trying to rally support for a vote on the bill this week, but may be short of the support necessary to pass it.

The Republican senator told reporters Friday, "I wouldn't say they are losing it".

Sens. Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson, Rand Paul, Mike Lee said publicly on Thursday that they are not ready to vote for the bill as is, although they are open to negotiations to change it. "I think it's better than it was in the days gone by, we're working now five days a week, generally, and we're in Washington, D.C., five days a week ... if it takes being in Washington, D.C., in August, let's do it". Furthermore, Heller kept citing Sandoval's assessment of the bill as critical to his thinking, which means he already has "cover" for what would be a step that may anger Nevada Republicans.

"We're anxious about the burden it creates for the states", Kristine Grow, spokeswoman at America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), said on Friday.

I don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to view the Senate bill. It would let insurers provide fewer benefits, offer less generous subsidies than Obama to help people buy policies and end the statute's tax penalties on people who don't buy policies and on larger firms that don't offer coverage to workers. He needs the support of at least 50 of the 52 Republican senators.

The US Senate bill resembles legislation the House approved last month.

The legislation would phase out extra federal money that more than 30 states receive for expanding Medicaid to additional low-income earners. But she said it would be "extremely difficult" for the White House to be able to find a narrow path to attract both conservatives and moderates.

Some Republican senators expressed doubt Sunday about holding a vote on the health care bill to repeal and replace Obamacare until the Congressional Budget Office releases its analysis on the legislation and changes are considered.

Johnson's remarks came in a nationally televised interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." "I think they'll get some points". "There's no way we should be voting on this next week".
