US Senate votes to start debate on repealing Obamacare

It was the second self-inflicted setback the Republicans have suffered this week in trying to roll back Obama's 2010 statute.

"If that is the plan, I will vote to proceed to have this vote".

Murkowski was one of two Republicans who on Tuesday voted against allowing debate of GOP legislation to repeal much of the Affordable Care Act. "Now is the time for action", Trump said at the White House. Steve Daines of Montana.

"Some of us want clean repeal, some of us want the Senate leadership bill, they're both going to get a vote early on and I think that's a fair way to do it", Republican Senator Rand Paul said.

The amendment failed, after seven Republican members voted against the plan, ensuring it would not receive the 50 votes necessary. Nine Republicans voted against it.

"Any senator who votes against starting debate is telling America that you are fine with the Obamacare nightmare", said Trump.

There appear to be two choices - either a repeal-and-replace bill that has already struggled to win support across the party, or a bill that enacts repeal with a two-year delay, in the hope of finding agreement before that time elapses.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that 16 million Americans could lose their health insurance under a version of Senate Republicans' health care bill known as the "skinny repeal", a bill that would repeal only some elements of Obamacare.

Hours after narrowly voting to begin debating repeal of significant portions of Obamacare, the Senate voted down a Republican-backed overhaul of the health care system Tuesday night.

This is the process where, after the House and Senate pass different versions of the same bill, negotiators from both chambers come together to try to agree on its final text. "It's a shell of a bill right now, we all know that", said the Arizona lawmaker. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.

Reaching an agreement on a plan to simply repeal parts of the landmark health-care law or replace it still appears hard.

It was preceded by the dramatic return of Sen. "But to use it as a vehicle to continue negotiations is certainly welcomed".

"As this vote shows, inaction is not an option, and now the legislative process can move forward as meant to produce a bill that lowers costs and increases options for all Americans".

Minutes after the vote, Trump called it "a big step". That vote will likely happen Friday. John Cornyn, R-Texas. That's not easy, ' the president said.
