Concerns about the legislation are building from both sides of the Republican Party. So Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can afford to lose two members of his caucus but no more and still have the bill pass.

He said Friday he would vote against the bill in its current form but did not rule out supporting a revamped, final version of it.

Tim Phillips, who leads Americans for Prosperity, the Koch network's political arm, called the Senate's plans for Medicaid "a slight nip and tuck" of President Barack Obama's health care law, a modest change that he described as "immoral".

"But I think they're going to get there", Trump said of Republican Senate leaders.
The office's report on the House's health care bill, which is similar in many respects to the Senate measure, said if it became law, 51 million people would be uninsured by the year 2026 - meaning 23 million fewer people would have insurance coverage than if Obamacare remains the law of the land.
Sandoval said the Senate bill "is something that needs to change".
Schumer says Democrats have made clear they would be willing to work with Republicans to pass a Senate bill if they agree to drop a repeal of the Affordable Care Act and instead work to improve it.
