"In this form, I will not support it", Heller said at a press conference Friday.

And there are plenty of moderates who haven't weighed in yet.

The Senate bill looks a great deal like the House bill, which would leave 23 million more people without insurance over the next 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Heller is up for re-election in 2018 and is considered one of the most vulnerable GOP senators.

The bill would cut and redesign the Medicaid program for low-income and disabled people.

Obamacare has been credited with expanding health coverage to many more Americans. "After the 2020 drawback of Medicaid expansion, what this bill does in the out years, is it establishes a Medicare reimbursement rate for the states that's pegged to inflation". And Medicaid covers 65 percent of the people in nursing homes.

"I can not support a piece of legislation that takes away insurance from tens of millions of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Nevadans", Heller said at a press conference.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky. walks on to the Senate floor on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, June 22, 2017, following a meeting with Senate Republicans on a health reform bill.

But the bottom line here is this: "We can not accept a system that perpetuates the drain of American businesses overseas". Representative Jim Jordan has proposed some $400 billion in welfare spending cuts to help pay for tax cuts.

But the Senate bill would make subsidies less generous than under current law.

"Nobody will fall through the cracks, nobody will have the rug pulled from under them", he also said. "What the Republicans are doing are just washing their hands of Medicaid, sending it back to the states and saying, basically, it's your problem, state government". Still President Trump says it's a work in progress.

It was not immediately clear whether the group intends to back a primary challenger to Heller. "But we won't get one Democratic vote - not one".

First of all, it's only 142 pages!

Four conservative senators expressed opposition but openness to talks: Ted Cruz of Texas, Kentucky's Rand Paul, Mike Lee of Utah and Ron Johnson from Wisconsin.

The other GOP senators who oppose the bill are Sens. In particular, her son, who's schizophrenic. You may not agree with me, but we can probably agree that what is happening now is embarrassing, shameful and will do harm to us.

McConnell wants a vote before his members head home to face their constituents over Congress' Fourth of July recess - maybe even before they have a chance to fully digest the bill, which would shake up an industry that comprises one-sixth of the US economy and safeguards the health and well-being of more than 300 million Americans.
