But right now Senate leaders have a lot of work to do to get the fifty votes they need.

There's no Congressional Budget Office analysis of the Cruz amendment because it's not in a bill yet.

The proposal, known as the Better Care Reconciliation Act, would still change Medicaid from an open-ended entitlement program to a program with fixed funding levels for states.

Graham and Cassidy's proposal also keeps numerous federal taxes in place, but then ships the money off to the states.

While certain members remain hesitant, the addition of an amendment put forward by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., is expected to allow insurers selling individual plans that comply with Obamacare rules to also sell "non-compliant" plans in the same states.

"A state like Vermont has expressed interest in a state-government run and financed single-payer system like they have in Canada", Mr. Graham said.

It would also allow Americans to use money in their health savings accounts to pay for their premiums. The BCRA will also provide $45 billion to combat the opioid crisis. Lastly, it would preserve several ACA taxes that the original GOP bill sought to remove.

He warned in a Wednesday interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network that he would be "very angry" if Congress failed to pass legislation which repeals and replaces large parts of Obamacare, the health reforms of his predecessor Barack Obama.

Party leadership can not afford to lose more than two of the 52 Republican senators, because all of the Democrats have vowed to oppose the bill. It needs support from at least 50 out of 52 Republicans to pass, after the Democrats vowed unanimously to vote against it.

53,387 Virginians gained health insurance through Medicaid and CHIP from 2013 to 2016 according to a report released by the Department of Health and Human Services in December 2016.

"This bill, like the old one, means millions of Americans will lose coverage", he said. Both taxes apply to individuals with income of more than $200,000 and couples with income over $250,000.

Some conservatives have already said they won;t support the updated legislation.

"Obamacare is going to collapse", Graham said in a news release.

He then wants to receive a CBO score on the new version as early as next Monday, and hold a vote to begin debate on the bill next week.
