Casey urges action against GOP health care plan

"It's not the answer, it's simply not the answer", Heller said. Dean Heller became the fifth GOP senator to say he would not support the measure in its current form.

Heller is widely viewed as the most vulnerable Republican senator up for reelection in 2018 - the only one running in a state that Hillary Clinton carried previous year - and Republican leaders have been hoping to avoid having to count on his vote.

In nearly the exact words used yesterday by Collins, Heller said he could not support any bill that took away health insurance from "tens of millions of people".

Earlier this month, CNN reported hat Trump had called the Senate bill "mean" in a luncheon with Republican senators, and said the House's version of the bill did not provide enough protection for individuals.

Heller joined four conservative senators who came out against the bill Thursday, albeit for far different reasons, including that the Medicaid cuts aren't large enough, proving that McConnell's path to 50 is complicated.

Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mike Lee of Utah and Rand Paul of Kentucky released a joint statement saying they're not ready to vote for their party's Senate health care bill.

"If we get to impasse, if we go to a bill that is more repeal and less big government programs, yes, I'll consider partial repeal", he said.

With Republicans in the Senate holding only a 52-48 seat edge, they can afford only two defections to get to a 50-50 tie, allowing Vice President Pence to then presumably break any logjam.

Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., said on CBS' Face the Nation that he was undecided on the bill, as did Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said the centrist has some misgivings about the bills as well. Both bills cut health care for our most vulnerable citizens while giving the richest Americans huge tax cuts.

"It's hard for me to see the bill passing this week", Collins said.

Trump said he thinks Republicans in the Senate are doing the best they can to push through the bill.

The federal government's share of funding for Medicaid, which is jointly run with individual states, would fall over the course of seven years to end up at around 57 percent of the cost of that program, which offers health coverage to the poor.

In a speech Thursday from the Senate floor, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., characterized the ACA as a failure that "teeters, literally teeters, on the edge of total collapse". As proposed by Republicans, the cuts would lead NYC Health + Hospitals to absorb as much as $1 billion in losses, without even taking into account further cuts from the President's budget proposal.

MARTIN: So what does the Senate bill do? One thing that the Senate bill did, they tried to rewrite the way the tax credits work to help people purchase coverage. The insurance they would buy under the bill might seem cheap at first, but it wouldn't be if they ended up paying more in deductibles. "She has a number of concerns and will be particularly interested in examining the forthcoming CBO analysis on the impact on insurance coverage, the effect on insurance premiums, and the changes in the Medicaid program", Clark said.

"I want the bill to look more like a repeal bill", Paul told MSNBC on Friday. She said that the Affordable Care Act is critical to getting her daughter the care she needs.

Some might benefit from the new senate proposal, but others might not, depending on your circumstances.

Actually, only by killing this bill would these senators open the way for reasonable fixes to the ACA. "While we are still waiting for final numbers, every indication is that the plan unveiled by Senate Republicans will be even more devastating".

Underscoring the sensitivity of the bill, Sen.
