It’s a tough sell for Republicans who are trying to get the Senate to pass a health care bill without Democratic support.
President Donald Trump has called for a bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare to be passed before the Thanksgiving holiday.
But if Democrats don’t support the legislation, the president and GOP leaders have no way of passing it without a broad agreement of the party on the bill.
The bill is expected to be introduced this week by Sens.

The Senate health committee is scheduled to meet Tuesday to consider the bill, and the bill is still being reviewed by the full Senate.
The House is expected on Wednesday to vote, with some Democrats and the Whitehouse hopeful of a majority vote.
The House is also expected to vote later Wednesday on a bill that would allow states to waive ObamaCare’s requirement that insurers cover all people with pre-existing conditions.
While the Senate and House are expected to pass the bill on Thursday, there is no guarantee it will be the final product.
