Five GOP senators now oppose health bill

"Health care is a very, very tough thing to get", Trump acknowledged in an interview on Fox and Friends airing Sunday morning.

"What I find so disappointing is these bills aren't going to fix the problem", Johnston said Sunday.

Appearing on CNN's State of the Union, Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich noted that he is against the bill in its current form, joining with the more moderate GOP voices who feel the legislation would leave too many vulnerable people without health care coverage. So Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can afford to lose two members of his caucus but no more and still have the bill pass.

Significantly, President Donald Trump's assessment of the House Republican version of the bill agreed with criticisms by Democratic Party opponents, including Clinton and Obama.

States could not get exemptions to Obama's prohibition against charging higher premiums for some people with pre-existing medical conditions, but the subsidies would be lower, making coverage less affordable, Pearson said. "I want to see a bill with heart", he added. "We have four very good people, and it's not that they're opposed. The level of hostility".

Without significant changes in the proposal, the senator said he'll vote with Democrats to block it from reaching the Senate floor. "Healthcare's a very complicated subject from the standpoint that you move it this way, and this group doesn't like it". Johnson said in an interview with WLUK-TV, "I'm saying I haven't gotten the information yet to convince myself that I'm a 'yes'". Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.

ROVNER: It's somewhat similar to the House bill, although the cuts would go even deeper. Enzi and Barrasso (complete with file photos) assured us the Senate's version of the Republican health-care bill will be made available to the public prior to a vote thereon.

The CBO announced Thursday it would release its analysis, commonly called a "score", early this week and Axios and other news outlets reported Monday is expected to be the day. It also would provide more generous tax subsidies than the House bill to help low-income people buy private insurance.

A major goal of Republican "reforms" is to greatly reduce the Medicaid program. It would also slap annual spending caps on the overall Medicaid program, which since its inception in 1965 has provided states with unlimited money to cover eligible costs.

The draft bill's fate was immediately thrown into question, however, by a statement from Senator Rand Paul and three other conservative Republicans, who said they were "not ready to vote" for it. Democrats need the support of only three Republicans to quash the measure in the Republican-led chamber.

Trump also told told Fox that he wants House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to remain as the Democrats' leader. "I'm not voting for something that looks just like Obamacare".

This is really an interesting question because I actually am a big believer in bipartisanship, in large part because I don't think our country deserves to go through the back-and-forth of changing our health care system every election cycle. Famous last words, right?

"I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party", Obama wrote in a Facebook post.

McConnell needs nearly every Republican to support the bill.
