The leader of the minority Senate Democrats, Senator Charles Schumer, said Sunday that Republicans have "at best a 50-50 chance" of approving their Senate proposal. "A little negotiation, but it's going to be very good".

"I can not imagine that these very fine Republican Senators would allow the American people to suffer a broken ObamaCare any longer!" he wrote. "There are things in this bill which adversely affect my state that are peculiar to my state, a couple of things I'm concerned about", Cassidy said.

President Donald Trump will help lead talks to get the reluctant Republicans on board. Obviously that means his vote could change once the bill gets amended, but it might be slightly tricky considering his reason for opposing AHCA: Medicaid. "We could well be in all night a couple of nights".

Sens. Paul Ryan of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin all said they would not support the current bill after its long-awaited reveal.

The Republican senator told reporters Friday, "I wouldn't say they are losing it". "We should not be voting on this next week".

Republicans have a 52 to 48 majority in the Senate.

The latest Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act is being shunned by U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow. In addition to her concerns about Medicaid, Collins has critiqued the bill for blocking funding to Planned Parenthood.

A vote on the bill could come next week.

Assuming every Democrat is a no vote, the GOP can't afford more than 2 of their own senators to vote against the bill. It would also cut several taxes established by the Affordable Care Act and would restructure the way health insurance subsidies are distributed to low-to-middle income customers.

But it repeals the individual mandate requiring people to buy health insurance without creating incentives for Americans to stay in their plans.

The state could opt to keep up the coverage, but Wolf administration officials have said the costs would be astronomical-likely more than $4 billion.
