It predicted that average premiums in the private health insurance market that serves individuals who purchase policies directly from insurers would increase by roughly 25 percent relative to projections under the existing system.

McConnell can not even muster enough Republican senators to support a procedural motion that would allow the bill to head toward a final vote.

The Republican legislation is a near-identical copy to repeal-only bill vetoed by former U.S. President Barack Obama in 2015.

The Senate bill is opposed by the American Medical Association and a plethora of other physician groups, the American Hospital Association and other hospital trade associations, and patient and consumer organizations like the American Lung Association and the AARP. All they needed was a Republican president to finish the deal. During the luncheon, Trump contradicted McConnell, and himself, directing senators to repeal and replace simultaneously.

This game of legislative "not it" might not have gone over too well with the Donald Trump of four years ago. This, the president said, would bring Democrats to the table on a possible fix. But like the GOP's other attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act (over 60 attempts to be precise), this will unlikely go over well with Republican constituents, who often rely on Medicaid and other government programs.

Quite frankly, I do not see how the fundamentals of this have changed simply because the president says they have. "Congress needs to do their job and Congress needs to do their job now", he said. Obamacare still hasn't been repealed, despite Trump's campaign pledge to gut the landmark health care legislation "very, very quickly" and replace it with "something terrific".

"Look, he wants to remain a senator, doesn't he?"

"People are hurting. Inaction is not an option", Trump said at the White House lunch on Wednesday. Dean Heller (R-NV), who was sitting to his right.

Republicans can't afford to lose more than two GOP votes in order to pass the bill. But thanks to votes against McConnell's bill from Collins, Murkowski, and Capito, it failed as well. Thune sought to cast this week's initial vote as important but mostly procedural, allowing senators to begin debate and propose amendments.

McConnell then said the Senate would vote on repealing Obamacare without replacing it.

Experts say the amendment basically amounts to a high-risk pool, forcing those with pre-existing conditions to purchase more expensive ACA-compliant plans while offering cheaper plans that cover very little to now healthy individuals.

And that means first, letting the bill come up for a vote on the floor of the Senate. He told The Hill he'll "make it a habit" not to visit the White House while his committee is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
