"Any senator who votes against starting debate is telling America that you are fine with the Obamacare nightmare, which is what it is", Trump said in an afternoon address from the White House on the eve of an anticipated Senate vote that could spell defeat of the long-sought legislation. Obamacare has broken our health care system. But at least we'd get a debate, and voters could see which Senators have which priorities. But McConnell said after the vote that "we'll finish at the end of the week".
Trump said Republican Senators must keep their promise to constituents to repeal and replace the law.
President Trump has already put on the pressure on senators in his party.
Trump has repeatedly grilled fellow Republicans for not following through on their - and his - campaign pledge to repeal and replace Obamacare, something he said he aimed to do immediately once in office in January.
The Republican-controlled House in May narrowly passed its version of a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare".
- ABC News (@ABC) July 25, 2017 Vice Pres. Pence votes "aye", breaking tie in crucial procedural health care vote; Senate to move forward to debate GOP health care bill.
Republicans hold 52 of the Senate's 100 seats. They can only afford to have one of their senators defect and still prevail on a health bill.

Ann Coulter Is Enraged With Delta For Allegedly Giving Away Her Seat

"It's impossible to determine the final product of the health care bill coming out of the Senate...but, obviously my hope is that the Senate gets health care done", Ryan said. Getting 60 votes would require Democratic support, which they won't get. "It's not a question of if, it's a question of when".
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, is among the leading opponents of the GOP replacement plan, saying proposed reductions in Medicaid spending would harm her constituents.
It is expected an additional 32 million more people by 2026 will be without health care caused by today's move.
What's in the bill is unknown, but it is expected, nevertheless, to face an uphill battle in the Senate. "Knowing him, I know he wants to come back as soon as he can physically make it".
The latest Republican plan would dismantle Obamacare but delay the actual implementation of the repeal to allow time for a viable replacement to be crafted. That version would reduce government costs but lead to 32 million additional uninsured people over a decade. "Healthcare is too important to Kansans, our families and future generations of Americans to get wrong".
