Later that day, Trump tweeted, "If Republican Senators are unable to pass what they are working on now, they should immediately REPEAL, and then REPLACE at a later date!"
In fact, my guess is that the bill has low approval even among those who would get a significant tax cut. But they do not agree with McConnell's premise that the ACA is a disaster and Americans urgently want to repeal and replace it.
Sasse can say he was suggesting this only if negotiation broke down, but now that becomes catnip for the right and reason to avoid any compromise.
"We are going to see what we are going to do", Trump said.
That's the Senate landscape in the aftermath of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and a small cohort of Republican senators disclosing their 142-page draft bill to repeal and replace the 7-year-old Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
Conservatives like Paul and Sen.
"And it's plucked straight from the Senate Republican bill".
Opposition from unified Senate Democrats and a handful of Republicans to the GOP leadership's health care plan could doom it unless horse-trading changes occur before an up-or-down vote.
After years of criticizing Obamacare, Republican leaders have struggled to build consensus on a replacement.

With all the conversation about who gets health care and who does not, those walking the halls of our Capitol are really only focusing on who pays for it, not the consequences of their actions. McConnell said late Friday. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says that as the legislation now is written, it would boost out-of-pocket costs for many poor consumers and produce 22 million uninsured people while cutting around $700 billion in taxes over a decade - largely for richer people and the health care industry. Keeping that tax increase in place was a bid to woo party moderates and rescue their sputtering push to repeal his health care overhaul.
"Any bipartisan health care solution must, at a minimum, include a robust public option for all or a Medicare buy in for all - and if it doesn't, it is dead on arrival with the progressive base and most Americans", PCCC's Adam Green said. "I respect Ben on this issue but now is the time for him to lead because the Senate isn't getting the job done".
"The bill is just being lit up like a Christmas tree full of billion-dollar ornaments, and it's not repeal", Paul said. While there are some differences, estimates of the number of people who would lose insurance nationally under the House and Senate versions are similar.
"Middle-class families are getting hammered", he said.
The first involves guaranteeing Obamacare's cost-sharing reductions, which help make copays and deductibles cheaper for lower-income people who get insurance through Obamacare. "We can argue whether they like the system we're bringing them in or not, but simply a repeal, even with the sunset the year or two down the road - the problem (is) we know how Washington works".
Donald Trump said: "This law will be great if you can do it".
Salsbury tweeted the website's link in May after the house voted to repeal and replace Obamacare.
The idea also would leave unresolved the quandary lawmakers are struggling with now, about how to replace Obama's system of online insurance markets, tax subsidies and an expanded Medicaid with something that could get enough Republican votes to pass Congress. House Republicans barely passed their version of a replacement bill in May, and the task is proving even tougher in the Senate, where McConnell has nearly no margin for error.
