"We have a few people that are - I think you could say modestly - they're not standing on the rooftops and screaming, they want to get some points. That's what I want, make sure that we're taken care of here in the state of Nevada", said Heller.

Senate leaders last week unveiled a revamped health care plan aimed at fulfilling Trump's pledge to repeal Obamacare, the landmark reform of his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama.

Rand Paul, one of the GOP holdouts on the Senate health care bill, said Sunday he would be willing to support a partial rollback of Obamacare, saying he might even vote for an 80 percent repeal. On Friday, Heller also came out and said he will vote "no" on the bill as it now stands.

But Johnson did not say whether, if forced to vote on the bill, he would vote "no".

"Right now, we've got premiums going through the roof, deductibles are sky-rocketing".

"Well he used my term, mean", Trump said during an interview with Fox and Friends on Sunday. It would offer tax credits to help offset the cost of coverage, and eliminate most ACA taxes on corporations and higher-income Americans, according to an analysis by NPR News.

The 142-page measure, released Thursday, would end Obamacare's penalties for people who don't buy insurance, cut back an expansion of Medicaid, but would keep protections for people with pre-existing conditions, compared to the House-passed bill.

The Senate and House bills both called for cuts of more than $800 billion to Medicaid, along with tax cuts for wealthy citizens who were expected to pay for supporting Obamacare.

"It doesn't protect Nevadans on Medicaid and the most vulnerable Nevadans", Heller said at a news conference in Las Vegas.

More Republican senators are indicating they're not happy with the current draft of the proposal and now, President Trump is making a push to get the GOP on board.

Schumer said the Republicans shouldn't expect any support from the opposition. It is, to borrow President Trump's behind the scenes assessment of the House's bill, mean.

He said he has made his views clear to the party leadership and the White House.

And if it were the greatest bill ever proposed in mankind, we wouldn't get a vote and that's a awful thing.

"It would be so great if the Democrats and Republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it and come up with something that everybody's happy with", the United States president said.
