Obama: 'Fundamental Meanness At The Core' Of GOP Health Care Bills

Senate Republicans on Thursday unveiling a health care bill that makes deep cuts in Medicaid and end the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) mandate that most Americans have health insurance.

"This bill...is simply not the answer", Heller said.

Paul also said it was not clear whether the four senators would stay united as talks continue.

"We don't have enough time, both members and the public, to completely evaluate this bill, see the scoring, see all the debate within the public realm".

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was urging Democrats to post stories on social media on constituents whose health care coverage would be threatened. The story examined the claim that more Americans will die on the Republican health care plan than the one that is now in place.

First up, the Congressional Budget Office's estimate of the plan's costs and the effects on insurance coverage is due early in the week, perhaps Monday, June 26.

Heller, meanwhile, was skeptical Friday that Senate leadership was going to be able to provide the concessions he would need to support the bill.

Ernst declined to comment on any other provisions during a news conference at the Iowa Capitol, saying, "We have 142 pages to go through".

Nevada senator Dean Heller has become the fifth Republican to come out in opposition to the current draft version of the Senate healthcare bill. Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, will put the bill up for vote in the Senate next Thursday.

Rand Paul, who rejected the plan along with fellow Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Ron Johnson, said fundamental problems remained that would leave taxpayers subsidizing health insurance companies.

The Senate's plan, like one passed by the House of Representatives, rolls back numerous provisions of Obamacare, including taking deep cuts from Medicaid program.
