According to the Congressional Budget Office, passing the proposal would increase in 2020 the number of people without health insurance by 27 million and average premiums by 50 percent. 2017 12:53AMFailure to even debate a health care bill on the Senate floor has reinvigorated Democrats, who are offering to work with Republicans to "fix" Obamacare.

After several Obamacare replacement bills failed to pass, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell proposed repealing Obamacare without any replacement.

The Republican-led effort to undo President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law has produced high drama, internal division, and a series of political twists and turns.

Missouri's Democratic Senator has responded to President Donald Trump's call for Republican's to delay a scheduled recess until they pass a health care plan.

In these two interviews, Trump is either discussing the differences between health and life insurance or he doesn't understand how much health insurance costs the average American.

If President Trump cannot get Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare, then other major components of Trump's legislative agenda could be in jeopardy. "About three-quarters of that reduction would result from scaling back the expansion of eligibility enacted in the ACA", CBO said.

Then, while Mr Trump was at a dinner with some Republican senators on Monday night, two additional members: Jerry Moran of Kansas and Mike Lee of Utah also declared that they would oppose the measure, effectively killing the bill.

Senators Susan Collins and Angus King were both meeting with medical groups in ME on Friday, and said the latest effort by Senate GOP leaders is being handled poorly. They agreed a new "American Healthcare Act" in May, prompting Trump to hold a celebratory press conference with smiling congressmen in the White House Rose Garden.

"I don't think there are 40 votes to repeal and say to the American people, 'Well, trust us to come up with something in the next couple of years, '" Alexander told CNN.

Also, it would not curtail federal support for the overall Medicaid program as the House and Senate health care bills would have.

Enacting the legislation would decrease deficits by $473 billion over the next decade, however this doesn't take into account the cost of a replacement plan. John McCain (R-Arizona) in the Senate in the coming week due to his recently diagnosed health issues, has again deferred the Republican Party's plan to overhaul the nation's health care system. Either way, McConnell said the bill would be "wide open for amendment".
