But if the numbers of uninsured are staggering, then the increase in premiums for those who have their insurance either through Obamacare-established marketplaces or private purchase, is equally disconcerting.

Reviving the bill was far from assured, but Trump declared "I'm ready to act", putting the responsibility on Republican lawmakers, not himself.

That said, the law has dramatically increased the number of people with access to health care, and it has provided struggling hospitals with the ability to get compensated for care. Along the way, more than 550,000 Kentuckians would lose coverage they gained under the ACA. Mr. Trump may petulantly declare, "I'm not going to own it", but the failure of repeal and replace is, in fact, on him and his party.

The analysis came as Donald Trump urged Republicans to move away from a plan to repeal the 2010 healthcare law with a delayed replacement, a move that he had previously supported and one that comes with considerable political risks.

If Congress repeals large parts of the Affordable Care Act without a replacement, 32 million Americans will lose insurance and premiums will double over the next decade, the Congressional Budget Office found in a Wednesday report.

Seated next to Nevada Sen. Republicans can not repeal these parts of Obamacare because they are using the reconciliation process to pass the bill with a 50-vote majority and avoid a filibuster. It passed the Senate with a vote of 52-47 and the House with a vote of 240-181. "They might not be very much longer, but that's OK".

In the meantime, Vice President Mike Pence and other administration officials will be on Capitol Hill on Wednesday evening working with senators.

"The first vote, which will occur sometime this week, will be to proceed to the consideration of that legislation and to at least have a debate where we can have an open amendment process", Thune said. She voted against a similar proposal in 2015 and says it's not constructive. It was a safe vote then - they knew Democratic President Barack Obama would veto any attempt to repeal his signature legislative achievement.

Senators Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia are opposed to repeal.

"We promised that we would repeal and replace, we want to do that, but we want to do it the right way", said Sen. "So we need a "yes" vote".

At the White House lunch, the discussion was not simply about repealing "Obamacare" but also how to replace it as Republicans said that after seven years of promises, they could not let their efforts die without one last fight.

But at the lunch he told the senators he wanted more than a straight repeal and also wanted to replace Obamacare. Repeal of the policy could also mean that this clause would be removed. Unless someone changes their mind, this plan could not pass the Senate. But Republicans say that it has driven up premiums and forced consumers to buy insurance they do not want and can not afford. And without the ACA's subsidies, insurance companies might decide not to offer individual plans, Pugel said.
