Dean Heller says he opposes the GOP bill scuttling much of the Obama health care law, complicating the effort by party leaders to guide the measure through the Senate.

Remember what Trump promised the American people.
First up, the Congressional Budget Office's estimate of the plan's costs and the effects on insurance coverage is due early in the week, perhaps Monday, June 26.
With a third of the Senate coming up for re-election in 2018, many will have to weigh the state-wide implications before voting for the bill. When Trump stupidly referred to the House bill as "mean", he was nearly certainly referring to the provision in that measure that lets insurers charge higher premiums to those with preexisting conditions in states that have received a waiver from the federal government.
