To Republicans, spending more government money without repealing regulations isn't a real offer to help.
The most likely path now is for passage of the GOP "skinny repeal" plan that gets rid of individual and employer insurance mandates, and the medical device tax.
But no one should be fooled.
Following the failure of the so-called skinny repeal of Obamacare, there's a looming question for Senate Republicans: What happens to health care now?
The "skinny repeal" bill is a Trojan horse created to resuscitate the effort to repeal large parts of the ACA and impose big Medicaid cuts that would jeopardize coverage for millions of the nation's neediest people.
Defund Planned Parenthood and provide the funds to Community Health Centers: The "skinny repeal" bill would eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood and some similar providers, while giving more money to Community Health Centers. The GOP senators instead want assurances that the legislation will simply be used to advance the health care debate to a conference committee, in which Republicans appointed by the House and Senate leadership would hammer out a different bill altogether.

And she said it would hit particularly hard in Scotland, which has lower life expectancy rates than the rest of the UK. Gauke said the government was "aiming at the proportion of life spent in receipt of state pension to be 32%".
The 80-year-old Arizona senator will return to Washington just days after a cancer diagnosis, to cast what could be the deciding vote Tuesday to open debate on legislation to repeal and replace "Obamacare".
Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, said he believes Republicans will push the bill through the House and Senate and onto President Trump's desk by Sunday. Nine GOP senators voted against the first repeal and replace bill on the Senate floor, and seven voted against the partial repeal measure. Little was known about the bill until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took the wraps off the legislation Thursday.
He echoed sentiments from the speech McCain made this week and called for bipartisanship.
Was Skinny Repeal good policy? According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, repealing the individual mandate could increase the number of uninsured Americans by 15 million and raise insurance premiums by 20 percent. But that's not where Republican congressional leaders want the process to end up. "Until the Senate can do that, we will never be able to develop a conference report that becomes law".
Dealing a serious blow to President Donald Trump's agenda, the Senate early Friday rejected a measure to repeal parts of former President Barack Obama's health care law after a night of high suspense in the U.S. Capitol. "It's time they tell us what's on their mind".
"On health care I hope we can work together to make the system better in a bipartisan way".
"The skinny bill as a replacement for Obamacare is a fraud". And the conference process that Senator McConnell now would use would only strengthen his hand.
