And on top of that, he said there is other business that needs to be addressed.

New legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act contains the same cuts to Medicaid that would devastate CT financially, the state's two senators said Thursday. Mike Lee, (R-Utah), that gives insurance companies the option of offering less expensive health care plans that do not force customers to pay for the essential health benefits Obamacare required.

Corker said he's "all for voting" even if leadership lacks the votes at first, adding, "I just can't imagine not voting to proceed to a bill when you have an open amendment process".

McConnell can only lose the support of, at most, three Republican senators and still manage to pass the thing.

McConnell made the announcement during a GOP luncheon on health care, after 10 GOP senators signed a letter addressed to the majority leader before the July 4 recess, urging him for more working days to fulfill their legislative promises.

WASHINGTON • •Senate Republican leaders have vowed to press ahead with their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, with a new version of their Bill today and a vote next week - regardless of the deep divisions within the party.

"This [CBO] estimate is likely substantially inflated since Medicaid enrollees now pay little to no out of pocket costs and most are not subject to the individual mandate penalty", the release stated. Republican leaders had initially hoped to vote on legislation to roll back Obamacare before last week's recess, but postponed the planned vote once it became clear the Bill did not have enough support for passage.

But McConnell is still moving full steam ahead on his bill, saying he expects the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office to provide its budgetary analysis, known as its "score", early next week. Ted Cruz. The Cruz amendment would remove the minimum coverage requirements imposed by the Affordable Care Act.

In addition to health care, the Senate needs to pass a budget, raise the debt limit and come up with a spending plan before the fiscal year ends September 30.

The amendment, however, has been key to getting Cruz to vote for the GOP plan to overhaul Obamacare.

But at least eight GOP senators opposed the original version of the Senate bill.

It remains to be seen whether the new bill will be able to bridge the divide. It's controversial since experts say it could harm protections for people with preexisting conditions.
