Republican leaders in the House faced the same challenges in March that their Senate counterparts are now confronting.
In the same tweet, Clinton linked to a story by the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan policy institute. No state would be allowed to experiment with different models for protecting people with pre-existing conditions. Analysis shows that both the House and Senate versions of Trumpcare would strip coverage from millions and would make existing insurance policies worse and more expensive for almost all Americans.
"As we heard (Sen.) Rand Paul say earlier, we need to legalize low-priced insurance again", Sen. If the four senators - Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Ron Johnson, R-Wis., Mike Lee, R- Utah, and Rand Paul, R-Ky. - join Democratic senators in opposing the bill, it will be defeated.
"I am very supportive of the Senate #HealthcareBill".
Obamacare has been credited with expanding health coverage to many more Americans. It would fund a large tax cut by scaling back health assistance, resulting in 23 million more people uninsured in a decade, with the pain concentrated on poorer and older people.
Opponents of Obamacare say it is unfair to require people to buy insurance plans, expensive ones at that.
With all Democrats expected to oppose the measure, the Republicans can afford to lose the support of only two of their 52 members if they want to pass the legislation.
"These people who are busting it, working 60 hours a week and they've seen their premiums double and their coverage cut in half, it's the craziest system in the world".
Trump, who campaigned heavily on a pledge to dismantle his predecessor's landmark health care reforms, offered a brief reaction to the bill's release.
Alison Barkoff, the director of advocacy for the Center for Public Representation and an organizer of the protest, echoed the concerns of numerous bill's critics, saying that it represents little more than "tax cuts for the wealthy on the backs of people with disabilities".
But it preserves a key element of Obamacare, which allows parents to cover children under their plan until age 26.
