"I don't even want to talk about it because I think it would be very bad", Trump said in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Hours after Senate Republican leadership released the latest version of its plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, U.S. Sen. It is virtually unintelligible and contains a little favor for moderates and a favor here and there for conservatives and would result in a health care insurance system few could understand and one that would leave more Americans at risk.

However, deep cuts to Medicaid - a sticking point for some moderate Republicans - remain in place.

"This is our moment, we were tasked to do and we need to get it done and find compromise within our party to help the American people who are suffering with the failure of ObamaCare", Romney McDaniel said.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Texas, came out Wednesday and said he'd vote against it and Sen. Dick Durbin, arguing that the GOP's health care bill is just a tax cut for the wealthy.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday he will be "very angry" if Republicans - now struggling to cobble together sufficient support - fail to pass health care reform legislation.

He said the GOP senators are right to be cautious, especially given reports from federal experts that millions of people would lose their health care coverage and others may end up paying higher costs.

The new version of the Senate bill includes an amendment that would only help Alaska, to ensure the votes of Republican Sens.

Some mainstream media outlets have declared the bill almost dead because only one more vote against it is needed.

Yet, Senate Republicans are without a vote to spare on their bid to keep the campaign promise they have been making in elections going back to 2010 - despite having voted to put similar legislation on former President Barack Obama's desk in 2015 to be vetoed. The Senate adopted the ACA only after approximately 100 hearings, roundtables, walkthroughs and other meetings, and after 25 consecutive days in continuous session debating the bill.

It's nearly as if they think it's not a good bill or something. Two Republican senators have said they won't vote to proceed; one more defection could return it to the legislative graveyard where it belongs.

It is substantively accurate to say there is a carve-out in the Senate measure, but as with much of what happens when the Senate uses the budget reconciliation process, the reasons are complicated.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is planning to discuss the new version of the bill with his conference later Thursday morning, and the new proposal is expected to be released publicly around the same time. Insurers have warned that if this passes, healthy people will buy cheap plans that cover nothing, and any plan with full coverage will go up by tens of thousands of dollars as only sick people sign up.
