Ron Johnson is one of the five GOP senators who have publicly declared they won't vote for the American Health Care Act as it's now written. "We don't have too much of a choice because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare".

The Senate revision largely mirrors the House bill passed in early May with slashes to Medicaid and Planned Parenthood funding. Unless those holdouts can be swayed, their numbers are more than enough to torpedo the measure developed in private by US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and deliver a bitter defeat for the president.

As Senate leadership plans a Thursday vote, negotiating with Lee and at least four other GOP senators who oppose the measure will be critical in determining its passage. "I think a few more days to consider would be helpful", he said. Susan Collins (R-ME) speaks during a news conference on Capitol Hill February 1, 2011 in Washington, DC. Sen.

"I don't think they're that far off".

Collins, a moderate Republican who has not taken a formal stance on the bill, said she was concerned it would cut Medicaid too deeply and said she wants to see an upcoming analysis by the Congressional Budget Office before making a decision.

The GOP legislation would phase out the Medicaid expansion, dramatically curb Medicaid spending and repeal ObamaCare taxes and its mandate to buy insurance. On Friday a fifth GOP senator, Dean Heller of Nevada, said he does not support the bill. "I don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to review the Senate bill", he said on NBC's "Meet The Press".

"We don't have enough information".

McConnell can only afford to lose the support of two GOP senators and still pass the bill - and that would necessitate a tie-breaking vote from Vice President Pence.

"I think right now - with President [Donald] Trump's shocking upset of the establishment still fresh in our minds - would be a good time for Congress to add a new ingredient to its legislative sausage: a dash of humility".

On Twitter this weekend, Trump urged the dissenting Republican senators to get behind the bill.

"It would be so great if the Democrats and Republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it and come up with something that everybody's happy with", the president said. "It's so easy. But we won't get one Democrat vote, not one". "Their theme is resist".

Republican U.S. Senator Susan Collins of ME said on Sunday that she has extreme reservations about the Senate health-care bill.

Trump said that each of the lawmakers would have a chance to negotiate a better deal.

"There's no way the Republican bill brings down premiums", Paul said in an interview on ABC's "This Week".
