Senator Says Health Care Vote Set For Next Week

Dems to McConnell Work with us to stabilize health insurance market

"The last iteration of the bill is one that I can not support", the Utah Republican said Tuesday.

With his reputation as a master strategist on the line, majority leader Mitch McConnell laid out a timetable for Senate consideration of legislation that would fulfill the Republican president's campaign promise to dismantle the Obamacare law.

"It's insane that we would be taking a recess", Cruz told Fox News' "Hannity" Monday night. John Kennedy, a freshman Republican from Louisiana.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is refusing to compromise with Democrats on healthcare, saying that it would betray conservative voters.

At least 10 Republican senators have opposed the bill in its current form, but many more have criticized the legislation or said they are undecided. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) push for an even more conservative version of the replacement plan while moderates balk at the plan as it is.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has also urged Congress to raise the debt limit before its August recess, but the Congressional Budget Office recently estimated that the federal government would not run out of cash until mid-October. Republicans can only lose two votes and still pass the bill.

Eight senators held a news conference earlier Tuesday on the topic of recess, during which they stood next to a large printed graphic warning: "31 working days until the fiscal year ends".

Grassley, first elected in 1980, said that Republicans have been promising for years to repeal Obama's 2010 statute and said, "There are consequences if you don't deliver on election promises, and there ought to be".
