GOP Sen. Susan Collins Calls Latest Obamacare Repeal Bill 'Unacceptable'

Here's the CBO Score on Obamacare Repeal

In addition to going after Heller, Trump said he was "surprised" that Sens.

After Trump's exhortation, party members met Vice-President Mike Pence on Capitol Hill to try to come together on a major Republican campaign promise for the past seven years - undoing former president Barack Obama's signature legislation.

The latest GOP attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare was fatally wounded in the Senate when two more Republican senators voiced their opposition to the legislation.

On Monday, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell stuck a fork in the Senate's Better Care Reconciliation, saying, "Regretfully, it's now apparent that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful".

The unfavorable report from by the nonpartisan office arrived as Republicans are scrambling to pass any kind of health care legislation, whether by replacing Obamacare entirely or by repealing its key components.

The American Medical Association is telling senators it's time to stop trying to repeal and replace "Obamacare".

"Any senator who votes against starting debate is really telling America that you're fine with Obamacare", Trump said.

Trump also attacked Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. Dean Heller, R-Nev., who was sitting next to him, and said, "Look, he wants to remain a senator, doesn't he?"

An earlier CBO analysis of an Obamacare replacement bill passed by the House found that 23 million more people would be uninsured if that bill became law. McConnell can only afford to lose one GOP vote, as no Democrats are expected to vote in favor of repealing the ACA. They're also running short on time, with deadlines looming in September to approve a government funding bill, increase the debt ceiling and reauthorize a federal health insurance program for low-income children.

"Wide open for amendment no matter what I offer for a substitute first, it's fully amendable", McConnell explained.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn told reporters the bill would likely be put up for a vote on Tuesday. "Last week, Senate leadership said it would be a clean repeal. and I think that's a good idea", Paul said. "I'm going to vote, though, to proceed to whatever vehicle is on the floor and if we want to have a debate on the floor, I'll be an active part of that". "And if it were to pass without any amendment at all, there's a two-year delay before it kicks in".

What can the White House do to change Obamacare without Congress?

In a purely punitive move, the president hosted Senate Republicans for their second meal at the White House this week - an event meant to publicly shame those who expressed dissent.
