The Senate deadlocked 50-50 on moving forward with the healthcare debate, forcing Vice President Mike Pence to cast the tie-breaking vote. John McCain of Arizona, who was just diagnosed with brain cancer, has come back to participate in the vote. Sen.

The president urged Republican senators to vote in favor of starting debate, though it is still unclear whether the legislation will seek to replace Obamacare or simply repeal it.

On social media, Stabenow said Republicans should work with Democrats to lower drug costs and increase coverage instead of proceeding on the Republican bill. Moderates are anxious repeal will cost low-income Americans their insurance and conservatives are angry the proposed bills do not go far enough to gut Obamacare.

"Earlier this month hundreds of Kansas gathered in townhalls across the state to tell Senator Moran how disastrous it would be for their families if he voted to repeal Obamacare".

"I will plead one last time with my friends on the other side of the aisle; and I know you have sincerely tried to modify and change things". Democrats were united in opposition to the motion to proceed.

The Republicans hold a 52-48 majority in the Senate, meaning they can only afford to lose two votes if they are to pass legislation that will repeal Obamacare.

"It's impossible to determine the final product of the health care bill coming out of the Senate...but, obviously my hope is that the Senate gets health care done", Ryan said.


Trump has never presented a plan despite all his promises to replace Obamacare with great health care.

"We're not quite there yet", said John Cornyn, the second-ranking Senate Republican.

Rand Paul, R-Ky., said Monday on Fox News that senators have "no earthly idea" what GOP healthcare bill they will be voting for Tuesday. "If either one of them fails and another one succeeds, maybe we can find something in between that actually succeeds".

"It's hard to believe somebody who has run and won election could go home and face the voters again and say, 'I'm not even willing to debate it on the floor, '" Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming, a member of the Republican leadership, said on CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday.

As of Monday, GOP leaders in the Senate were still scrambling to round up enough Republican votes to move forward with debate of the bill.

"In 20 years in the Senate, I have had a lot of people make suggestions about how to resolve legislative disputes, but until today nobody had ever suggested a duel", she said.
