Here comes the top secret Obamacare replacement bill

On Monday, clearing that initial hurdle was far from certain.

President Donald Trump has said he wants Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare, but would accept a straight-repeal of the law if senators couldn't reach agreement.

And once he became the presumptive Republican nominee, Trump, expressed no regret. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., by saying, "You better get Sen". He also thanked McCain for coming for the vote. John McCain, R-Ariz., is expected to return to the Senate today.

If the Senate approves a motion to begin debating a healthcare bill, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will determine which proposal has the most Republican support and move forward to a vote, Republicans said. Meanwhile, Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, suggested violence against uncooperative legislators, noting that only the gender of the women opposing the bill was keeping him from going after them "Aaron Burr-style" - a reference to the onetime vice president who fatally shot Alexander Hamilton in a duel. "And I don't know that anyone else I talked to does".

The Arizona Republican underwent brain surgery earlier this month and announced last week he has been diagnosed with brain cancer.

The Senate is scheduled to vote Tuesday on whether to use as a template a health care bill that narrowly passed the House of Representative in May.

"I have a feeling if there's any way he can be back he'll be here, whether or not his doctors like it, knowing John", Sen.

Moderate Sen. Susan Collins of ME said she continued to have concerns about reductions to Medicaid and criticized the Republican process, saying lawmakers were being unfairly kept in the dark. During last year's campaign Trump shockingly ridiculed McCain over his years as a POW during the Vietnam War. "I like people that weren't captured, OK?" He certainly never invited a single Democrat to the White House to discuss health care.

He and other Senate Republican leaders acknowledge they do not know whether there is sufficient support to even open debate on the new plan, a sign of Republican division about the impact such reforms might have on millions of American families. "They now have a chance however to hopefully - hopefully - fix what has been so badly broken for such a long time", Trump said in a speech on Monday. He added a word of warning: "Any senator who votes against starting debate is telling Americans that you are fine with the Obamacare nightmare".
