Trump optimistic on health care; some lawmakers doubtful

But some lawmakers have doubts.

The Senate measure would make major cuts in the Medicaid program for poor and disabled people. Unfortunately, this bill that was written pretty much in secret, and is now trying to be rushed through the process, doesn't do any of that.

"Policies contained in the discussion draft will repeal the individual mandate so Americans are no longer forced to buy insurance they don't need or can't afford", McConnell said.

Price said he had spoken with Heller and Sandoval to elaborate on his full vision for the proposed health care overhaul.

Nearly immediately, the pro-Trump group America First Policies chose to launch what a source with the group says will be a major television, radio and digital ad buy against Heller - a remarkable attack on a member of Trump's own party whose seat is endangered in 2018. Seventy-four percent of those polled, meanwhile, said they have a favorable opinion of Medicaid.

Sasse said he's neither finished reading the bill nor taken a position on it. Ted Cruz and Utah Sen. "That means the money available under this bill, for Medicaid in the out years, beyond 10 years, is even leaner, is even less, is even a deeper cut than what's in the House bill".

"It would be so great if the Democrats and Republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it and come up with something that everybody's happy with", the president said. "We have a few people that are - I think you could say modestly - they're not standing on the rooftops and screaming, they want to get some points". And the president called Massachusetts Sen. Liberal states might try single-payer systems, while conservatives might emphasize health savings accounts.

The Senate health care bill has some differences from the American Health Care Act that passed the House last month on a party-line vote without any support from Democrats.

"But that's up to the majority leader".

Joining Paul and Johnson in already announcing opposition are Sens.

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) also agreed there is undue pressure to pass the bill quickly.

"We should not be voting on this next week", he insisted. The Democrat reiterated her opposition in a statement to The Associated Press on Sunday, saying the health care bill being pushed by Senate Republicans is a "monstrosity".

"It's not that they're opposed", he said. Yet the measure will live or die in the Senate on Republican support.

When the GOP bill squeaked through the House in May, Trump held a televised celebration in the White House Rose Garden and told the cameras, "We're going to get this passed through the Senate - I'm so confident". Bernie Sanders went so far to call it "by far the most harmful piece of legislation [he's] seen in [his] lifetime". "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!" he wrote.

Collins says another seven to eight senators including herself remain troubled about the possible Medicaid cuts.

First up, the Congressional Budget Office's estimate of the plan's costs and the effects on insurance coverage is due early in the week, perhaps Monday, June 26.

Collins spoke on ABC's "This Week".

Even Mr Obama wrote: I was careful to say again and again that while the Affordable Care Act represented a significant step forward for America, it was not ideal, nor could it be the end of our efforts. "Like in the House bill, older people around 58, 59, 62, who were lower income will certainly wind up paying a lot more for their health insurance if this bill passes in its current form". Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who each have expressed serious reservations with the bill for very different reasons, proclaimed during exclusive interviews on Sunday's "Meet The Press" that rushing a vote before the July 4th recess would be unwise.
