"I am disappointed that Republican leaders have made a decision to freeze this bipartisan approach and are trying to jam through a partisan Trumpcare bill", she said.

"And I don't see those other one or two votes coming", Grassley told Iowa reporters Wednesday morning. Or could it be, Senator Cassidy, that the problem is that I do understand and you got caught with you GOPenis out? "It does!" Trump tweeted, alluding to recent attacks on the bill that it won't protect patients with congenital or pre-existing illnesses.

Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy, along with South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, is leading the latest effort to repeal and replace Obamacare in the U.S. Senate.

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, may once again hold fate of Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare in his hands - and while he's not yet said how he'll vote, he has emphasized his disapproval of the rushed legislative process that brought GOP leaders to this point.

When Capitol Media Services asked the Gov. Ducey what his numbers were in terms of loss of federal money, he said, "There is no federal money. That's pretty much as much of a reason as the substance of the bill".

And there are things in the bill he likes and believes would benefit Iowa. States then could use those dollars on health-care initiatives devised by legislatures and governors that would meet the needs of their low-income residents. A GOP Senate health care vote on the Graham Cassidy legislation could come as early as next week, and Republicans may be just one vote shy of being able to pass it.

But Cassidy defended the bill, telling CNN that his proposed legislation would allow more people to be covered. The states would get more control over how they spend that money, but analyses of the change show several states would receive less funding than they do now.

Graham-Cassidy would let states control insurance. "It will throw a quarter million New Mexicans off their health insurance, permanently gut Medicaid and end key protections for people with pre-existing conditions like diabetes and heart disease", said Senator Heinrich. "We have to be very strong advocates". "And I realize it will take this bill and more to do to get our health care system in the right shape".
