McConnell said in late May that Republicans did enough votes for the upper chamber’s healthcare legislation at that time.

“I don’t know how we get to 50 [votes] at the moment,” McConnell said at the time, referring to the healthcare bill.

While Republicans have majority power in the Senate with 52 seats, just two GOP defections would likely lead to a deciding, tie-breaking vote by Vice President Pence.

House Republicans passed a bill last month that repeals and replaces key provisions of ObamaCare, which many GOP lawmakers pledged to repeal.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score for the House legislation estimates that 23 million more people in the U.S. would become uninsured by 2026 than if ObamaCare remained in place. The CBO also estimated the bill would reduce the deficit by $119 billion over the course of 10 years.
