Early on Saturday morning, Trump further aired his frustration in a series of tweets to McCain.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said he does not yet support the bill, which appears to put the Republicans' latest effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act in jeopardy. He said he opposed a key pillar of the legislation - transforming much of the federal spending under Obama's law into block grants of money that states could spend with wide latitude. She said her concerns include keeping protections for pre-existing conditions and not decimating Medicaid, the state-federal health program for the poor. And Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who has come out against it, showed no signs of backing down in his own TV appearance.
He also indicated that Senator Lisa Murkowski, who had wavered publicly about the measure, would support it.
In Maine, Collins said there are lots of numbers floating around, and she's awaiting an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office before she makes a final decision. If three or more Republican Senators vote against the bill, it will fail, given the narrow GOP majority in the upper chamber.

The Republicans who want to kill it should take a cue from President Donald Trump and reach across the aisle to make the act do what it was meant to do - provide affordable access to health care.
The Graham-Cassidy bill, considered to be Republican's last-ditch attempt to follow through with an nearly seven-year campaign promise to end Obamacare, was spearheaded by a close friend of McCain's, Sen.
The Senate is under a tight September 30 deadline to pass health care reform legislation under the "budget reconciliation" procedure - the process that requires a simple majority.
Trump, speaking at a political rally Friday night in Alabama, called McCain's opposition "sad" and "a disgusting, terrible thing" for the Republican Party.

"I'm concerned about the impact on cost and coverage", she said.
Numerous Democratic critics of the proposal, along with several major health care groups in the country, say that over the coming years the change in the law would cut millions of people from the insurance rolls. "Let Arizona down!" Trump tweeted.
Trump said that McCain's last senatorial campaign "was all about repeal and replace, repeal and replace".
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price told Fox News Channel's "America's News HQ" on Saturday that he is "providing technical assistance and information" to senators working on the bill. "We continue to work with the authors on it through this weekend", Price said.
