And it underscores Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's feverish effort to yank one of his and President Donald Trump's foremost priorities from the brink of defeat.

"It's distressing to see so many Republicans who've lied about their commitment to repeal", Ken Cuccinelli, president of the Senate Conservatives Fund, said in a conference call Friday. "If the replacement part is too hard for Republicans to get together, then let's go back and take care of the first step of repeal".

"That's an option", Short emphasized. Republicans hold a 52-48 majority in the Senate.

Trump's suggestion has the potential to harden divisions within the GOP as conservatives like Paul and Sasse complain that McConnell's bill does not go far enough in repealing Obama's health care law while moderates criticize it as overly harsh in kicking people off insurance rolls, shrinking the Medicaid safety net and increasing premiums for older Americans.

He also indicated that it is not easy to make Americans great again. "We're getting close", Short said on "Fox News Sunday". Ted Cruz's regulations amendment into the final proposal.

Curated from GOP health-care talks center on stark question: Help vulnerable Americans or help the rich?

But Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), one of the main conservative critics of the bill as now written, suggested on the same show the legislation should be junked and process of writing it begun anew.

By comparison, the CBO predicted that 22 million people would lose health care if the latest version of the Republican bill to replace Obamacare were passed by the Senate. "We're at an impasse".

By Thursday afternoon, Senate leaders had agreed to dedicate $45 billion to opioid funding, according to GOP aides - a concession that Sens. "You can have a simultaneous bill or a concurrent bill that they can call replace and that, I think perhaps if it's big spending, they can probably get Democrats to go along".

Even before Trump was inaugurated in January, Republicans had debated and ultimately discarded the idea of repealing the overhaul before replacing it, concluding that both must happen simultaneously.

They considered it politically unwise, since it could draw accusations that Republicans are simply tossing people off coverage without helping them get medical care. Rand Paul, who's said he opposes the bill, which would do both at once.

"Let's bring everybody into the room, let's do this full-time, 18 hours a day, six days a week", Sasse said on CNN's "State of the Union". Take the plates and just walk away.
