He said the vote is "going to be close" and President Donald Trump is "going to be important in the process".

The comments are a blunt - but defensible - description of the Senate bill, which maintains some of the structure of President Obama's signature Affordable Care Act as it relates to the individual insurance market, and many of its regulations governing health care in general.

In an interview with Fox News' Fox and Friends on Sunday, Trump admitted that he had described as "mean" the House bill to dismantle Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act (ACA), which narrowly passed last month. GOP Senator Susan Collins of ME, who has not yet said she will vote against the bill, expressed reservations towards it to news outlets today.

He said senators "don't have enough information" to vote on the bill.

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 and deliver a bitter defeat for the president.

"You can't take over $800bn out of the Medicaid program and not expect that it's going to have an impact on a rural nursing home that relies on Medicaid for 70% of the costs of its patients", she said.

"It's a very complicated situation from the standpoint, you do something that's good for one group and bad for another", he said.

US Senator Ron Johnson is one of the five senators opposing the bill.

"And honestly", he said, "nobody can be totally happy, even without the votes".

All appear ready to negotiate changes before the expected vote ahead of the week-long congressional recess around the July 4th holiday celebrating the U.S.'s 18th century independence from England. The hard, hard right, these thousand very wealthy people, have such dominance in the Republican Party, they've had two goals for decades.

Already five Republican senators have said they can not vote for their party's plan as it stands now, with four them saying it does not go far enough to curb provisions under the Obama law and one saying the cuts in healthcare payments for the poor go too far. "They're not going to go down after the Republican bill". Tammy Baldwin, said Sunday on WISN's "Upfront with Mike Gousha" that many Wisconsinites with health issues are telling her they're "panicked" by the proposed GOP health care changes. "They're doing the same old Washington thing, throwing more money at the problem".

In his budget request to Congress, Trump said he wanted to "cap federal funding for the Medicaid program", and the House and Senate bills would do just that, converting Medicaid from an open-ended entitlement program to a system of per-capita payments for beneficiaries. But she said it will be "extremely difficult" for the White House to be able to find a narrow path to attract both conservatives and moderates.
