Trump says he's optimistic about Senate approval of GOP healthcare measure

"I don't think that the president has specifically weighed in that it's right to cut Medicaid", Sanders said.

The debate underscores the partisan divide in overhauling ObamaCare - former President Barack Obama's signature, 2010 health care law that extends health coverage to millions more Americans but has also struggled with rising premium costs and fewer premium options. "Cassidy's public statements have raised the most concerns and objections about the bill that passed the House, and he's been very clear in saying that he wants a bill that preserves coverage", Jan Moller, director of the Louisiana Budget Project, said Friday.

But the bill's supporters were battling a dire internal threat: reluctant Republicans.

"Health care is a very, very tough thing to get", Trump said.

"I don't think they're that far off".

As one of five Republican senators that announced opposition to the bill in its current form, Paul said he would consider voting for partial repeal of Obamacare, if there's a stalemate, but argued the Senate bill "isn't anywhere close to repeal".

Trump's warning comes as Republicans are struggling to save the Senate's healthcare plan, which has run into a wall of opposition in the upper chamber.

"It would be so great if the Democrats and Republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it and come up with something that everybody's happy with", the president said. I don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to view the Senate bill.

The Congressional Budget Office has yet to score the Senate plan, but has found the House measure known as the American Health Care Act would leave 23 million more people without health insurance over the next decade.

In a tweet last week after Georgia's special House election, Trump also criticized House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer.

"The bill is just devastating and that's what's making it so hard for them to pass it", Schumer said, adding that Democrats were "doing everything we can to fight this bill because it's so devastating for the middle class".

The Trump administration has said the Senate plan would end the individual coverage mandate, stabilize insurance markets, and give states flexibility in how they implement the new health care law; all while giving coverage to more people.
