Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell arrives to speak with reporters following the successful vote to open debate on a health care bill on Capitol Hill, July 25, 2017.

Portman was one of the seven Republican senators who voted against the repeal-only Obamacare bill.

The Senate has defeated the so-called "repeal and delay" amendment which would roll back Obamacare without a replacement in place is defeated in the Senate.

It's now up to lawmakers to begin the hard process of negotiating an alternative to Obamacare.

Republican senators know that they need to pass something in the next few hours if they want to advance their health care negotiations to conference where a group of House and Senate members could then be tasked with hammering out the final legislation.

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) articulated the line most common among Senate Republicans: Let's pass something - and we can figure out the rest later.

How the Senate has voted this week 1. But it allows lawmakers to begin the process of potentially repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Do Republican Senate leaders have an endgame?

Democrats and other critics of the Republican effort said it would deprive millions of health coverage. Lisa Murkowski, one of two Republicans to vote against proceeding to debate on a health bill on Tuesday. "I will not vote for this bill as it is today". It was November or December of 2015 when we last voted on that and he vetoed it.

Getting some type of bill to a conference committee with the House is going to take almost all Republican senators since Democrats are united in their opposition. The GOP senators will only vote for the bare-bones bill, they say, if it is just a vehicle to get to the next step in the legislative process, a conference with the House, were new legislation based on the two competing bills can be produced for both chambers to pass. The skinny proposal is seen as a final attempt to push a plan through the Senate before the chamber tries to reach a plan that could also get approval in the House.

Trump calls out Murkowski: President Donald Trump used Twitter on Wednesday morning to call out Alaska Sen. "Too bad!" Trump tweeted.

Here are the senators who changed their positions, breaking their promise to repeal Obamacare.

The president's remarks do not seem to reflect public sentiment.

Congressional Budget Office estimates on all of the GOP bills considered so far have found that each would deprive more than 20 million Americans of health insurance over the next 10 years.

"I think everybody in there, maybe except for one senator, promised their supporters, their voters that they supported repeal of Obamacare", Sen. Meanwhile, moderate Republicans like Collins oppose the suggested steep cuts to Medicaid.

For example, Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., will offer a motion Wednesday to send health care legislation back to the Finance Committee for consideration.
