Pres. Trump: Not 'that far off' from passing health overhaul

In addition, Susan Collins (R-ME) expressed reservations Thursday, and on Sunday said it would be "extremely difficult" for McConnell to "come up with a bill this week" that both she and Sen.

The House approved its version of the bill last month.

The Senate plan repeals the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate, slashes federal support of Medicaid and eliminates taxes on the wealthy and insurers that now help pay for care for the poor.

Susan Collins of ME said on ABC's "This Week" when asked whether the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Donald Trump could get her support by week's end. "I don't want that life no more", Sanchez said.

There was a difference, several Twitter users pointed out , between working with one's own political party and "working with a foreign enemy".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-Brooklyn) will continue to fight the legislation which he has called "heartless".

"This bill that's now in front of the United States Senate is not the answer", Heller, a moderate who is up for re-election in 2018, said at a news conference in Las Vegas. Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ron Johnson are the other four senators opposed to the bill, but their contention is that it doesn't go far enough to repeal Obamacare. Others worry it goes too far.

"She has been living in a group home for 21 years, all their funding comes from Medicaid", Stuart said.

"There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current health care system, but it does not appear this draft as written will accomplish the most important promise that we made to Americans: to repeal Obamacare and lower their health-care costs", the senators said in a statement Thursday.

But tax authorities later found that some of the information presented in that settlement was incorrect, the prosecutors said. I believe everyone must comply with their tax obligations, and I know that Cristiano always does things the right way.

The Republican senator told reporters Friday, "I wouldn't say they are losing it".

Lawmakers in Washington are still reading through the finer details of the Senate GOP's new healthcare bill, but opponents are already warning it'll give states an impossible choice-either cut services, or spend billions more on healthcare.

McConnell, eager to approve the legislation next week, indicated he was open to changes before it reaches the Senate floor, but he said it was time to act. Of the 52 GOP Senators in the chamber, the Republican Party can only afford to lose two for the bill to pass. However, "as now drafted, this bill does not do almost enough to lower premiums".

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office expects to release its analysis of the Senate plan early next week.
