Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Sunday called for a delay in the Senate vote on health care and instead seek a bipartisan effort to craft a workable replacement for the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.
"Health care is a very, very tough thing to get. We're disappointed that the discussion draft turns its back on this simple solution, and goes with something far too familiar: throwing money at the problem". Dean Heller, who said he opposed the bill in its current form.

"If we get to impasse, if we go to a bill that is more repeal and less big government programs, yes, I'll consider partial repeal", he said.
The GOP legislation would phase out the Medicaid expansion, dramatically curb Medicaid spending and repeal ObamaCare taxes and its mandate to buy insurance.
In addition to disputes over costs and insurance rates for Americans, the health care debate also features the most public duel yet between President Trump and predecessor Barack Obama - including an argument over the use of the word "mean".
Earlier in June, multiple outlets reported that Trump had urged senators in a close door session to give the new bill more heart and he said the first bill was, "mean, mean, mean".

"I don't think they're that far off", he said.
"At the end of the day, this bill is not going to fix healthcare", Davis said. American employers, which provide health coverage to more than 150 million workers and their families, could see their costs rise as hospitals and physicians try to make up for losses they incur caring for more uninsured patients....It also will probably hit employees, who will see insurance premiums increase and wages stagnate as businesses shift healthcare costs onto workers, as has happened repeatedly in the past. Since it's likely Democrats will unanimously vote against the bill, Republicans can afford to lose two votes before the bill is jeopardized. I don't see that leading it.
She says she intends to wait for a Congressional Budget Office analysis before making a decision.
Trump tells "Fox and Friends" he believes his majority party is "going to get there". As of Sunday, Johnson is joined by fellow Republican Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and Dean Heller in standing against the Senate health care plan as it now exists.
