CBO: Repeal-only bill would lead to 32 million more uninsured by 2026

"I'm ready to act", Trump said, foisting the responsibility on Republican lawmakers, not himself. Any replacement that repeals the individual mandate will be scored by the CBO as covering at least 16 million fewer people.

"The other night, I was very surprised when I heard a couple of my friends, my friends - they really were and are - they might not be very much longer", Trump said of Sens.

The CBO has yet to score the latest version of the Senate's plan to replace Obamacare, the Better Care Reconciliation Act, which now does not have enough votes to pass after key Republicans announced their opposition on Monday evening.

Sanders was speaking at a White House briefing Wednesday after President Donald Trump held a lunch with Senate Republicans trying to salvage their stalled "Obamacare" replacement health care bill.

During a lunch meeting Wednesday, Trump pushed Senate Republicans to forge an agreement on health-care legislation before leaving town for the August recess.

Further complicating that approach, the Congressional Budget Office released an analysis Wednesday reaffirming its earlier findings that the repeal-only bill would mean 32 million additional uninsured people over a decade and average premiums doubling.

Heller represents Nevada, a state that expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.

Despite Trump's admonishment, McConnell said the Senate will vote on a repeal only bill next week. The bill comes as the Senate has struggled to agree on what plan should replace the Affordable Care Act. "And we're determined to help, monetarily, the conservative opponents of folks like the three you've seen so far", Cuccinelli said, speaking with Morning Edition's Steve Inskeep.

But that proposal already appears to be dead - with three senators voicing their opposition to it - even though Mr McConnell appears to still be moving forward with his latest plan.

"McCain, a Republican known for his feisty independence, tweeted, ". unfortunately for my sparring partners in Congress, I'll be back soon, so stand-by!"

The party's proposed alternative includes steep cuts to Medicaid, a healthcare programme for the poor and disabled.

Changes to Medicaid will lead the program to lose about $842 billion in funding over the next 10 years and leave 19 million people without coverage.

It's the same measure all Republicans voted for in 2015.

Only 33 per cent agreed that Congress 'should throw it out and start over, ' compared with 60 per cent who said they 'should keep it and make it better'. "The fight to move beyond the status quo of Obamacare was certainly never going to be easy", he told the Senate on Thursday.

"I'm sitting in that office, I have a pen in hand". President Obama vetoed the legislation.

"I'm getting a little anxious", Corker said.

Senate Republicans were scrambling to pick up the pieces Tuesday after their attempt to repeal and replace the Obama-era health care law collapsed a second time.

Senate Republicans can work with Democrats on ways to improve the program, but this would be a hard marriage to arrange.
