The American people are close to a victory on healthcare as Republicans are saying they will begin negotiations with Democrats on a bipartisan healthcare bill if they can't get enough Republican votes to pass the Senate healthcare bill by Friday.
Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is calling on Senate Republicans to abandon their effort to pass a healthcare bill that takes away coverage from 22 million Americans.
After the CBO report, Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Dean Heller (R-NV) said that they would vote no on a motion to move the Senate health care bill to a final vote, while Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) said that he highly doubts that he would vote yes on moving the bill forward.
The CBO found that the people who are going to be hit hardest by the Senate healthcare bill will be poorer Americans age 50-64.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is using his Senate leadership position as head of Democratic outreach to call on millions of Americans to come together to fight against the Senate health care bill.
