'A Very Narrow Path' to Repeal Obama's Healthcare Law

"I would have liked to see the Democrats step up to the table and negotiate with us now, not wait till this bill is either passed or defeated", she said.

Johnson, elected in 2010 running against Obamacare, also said on NBC's "Meet The Press" program that the debate on revising health care has not been based on facts.

"I don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to review the Senate bill", Johnson said.

"If we get to impasse, if we go to a bill that is more repeal and less big government programs, yes I'll consider partial repeal", Paul said on ABC.

President Donald Trump is bemoaning what he calls "the level of hostility" that he says has stymied bipartisanship in Washington.

On Friday, Sanders tweeted that thousands would die if the Senate passed its version of the health care bill as it now exists.

"We have a very good plan", Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday.

Trump said Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer criticized the GOP bill before knowing what was in it.

Some GOP senators are not so sure about that.

Unless those holdouts can be swayed, their numbers are more than enough to torpedo the measure developed in private by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and deliver a bitter defeat for the president. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. We don't have too much of a choice because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare.I don't think they're that far off.

"Bottom line everybody costs are going to go up, health care coverage is going to go down", Stabenow said.

Besides the five who have announced their outright opposition, several other GOP senators - both conservatives and moderates - have declined to commit to the new overhaul.

With unanimous opposition from Democrats, McConnell can afford to lose just two of the 52 GOP senators and still prevail on the bill.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said seven to eight other senators including herself were troubled by provisions that she believes could cut Medicaid even more than the House version.

The latest Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act is being shunned by U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow.

Huckabee said Clinton's rhetoric makes the parties "look silly" and shows "they don't have an argument".

Price, the White House's point man on the issue, said the bill would end mandates on coverage, provide insurance reform to create market stability and give flexibility to states on implementing the law, instead of a "top-down, Washington-knows-best" strategy.

Trump was interviewed by "Fox & Friends", while Collins, Schumer and Paul appeared on ABC's "This Week".
