Thompson 'confident' GOP senators will produce a health care bill despite delay

At least four conservative Republican senators said they were still opposed after the CBO analysis. But he added, "If we don't get it done, it's just going to be something that we're not going to like, and that's okay".

"We're here to implore our Republican colleagues: Turn back from this bill", said Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, speaking on the steps of the Capitol.

In the most contentious congressional vote of Trump's presidency last month, lawmakers voted 217 to 213 to pass the Obamacare repeal-and-replace bill.

"We will not be on the bill this week", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters in what was a remarkable reversal of plans to push one of President Donald Trump's and the GOP's top priorities through the chamber this week. Susan Collins of ME and Sen.

Other senators who have proclaimed their opposition, including Sen.

Obamacare repeal vote delayed as Republicans tussle
The plan has been widely criticised amid fears that millions will lose their health insurance coverage. The latest Congressional Budget Office estimates of the bill are atrocious by any interpretation.

Later, Jerry Moran of Kansas, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Rob Portman of OH also said they opposed the measure.

The CBO predicted that virtually no low-income people who now qualify for very low deductibles and co-pays will buy policies under the Senate proposal's regime, since their out-of-pocket costs would rise too high. This approach has been labeled by critics as Obamacare light.

The healthcare measure could dramatically affect many Americans' health and financial security while also posing challenges to state governments facing proposed cuts in Medicaid coverage for low-income residents. Moderates and conservatives are dissatisfied with the bill for different reasons.

"We will not be on the bill this week, but we are still working toward getting 50 people in a comfortable place", McConnell said. "It's a big, complicated subject".

"I think we're going to get it over the line", Trump told reporters a day after meeting with most of the Republican senators at the White House to urge them to break the impasse. Lisa Murkowski, another moderate who has said she has concerns about the health care bill as it stands.

The State Department officials weren't authorized to discuss national security planning publicly and requested anonymity. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders flatly denied the White House was freelancing on foreign policy.

"I understand it and support it".

McConnell's closest ally - said that he was a "little bit" surprised at the announcement, having only moments before that the vote was on schedule.

Hatch, on the other hand, was praised for his work on what's being called the Better Care Reconciliation Act by U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price during the Trump administration official's visit to Utah on Monday. "Right now I think we keep too numerous Obamacare regulations, we keep too numerous Obamacare subsidies, and we have a brand new big federal bailout of insurance companies. So they rely on Medicaid". For GOP voters overall, 41 percent approve and 41 percent disapprove.

A number of GOP governors oppose the legislation, especially in states that have expanded the Medicaid program for the poor under former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. He told CBN News he met with President Donald Trump this week, who Paul says is open to negotiating the bill, but he hasn't heard from Senate leadership. Conditions that Republicans find unacceptable.

Senators of both parties said their offices have received a steady flow of calls and emails from constituents opposing the bill.
