In what lawmakers are calling "vote-a-rama", the Senate is expected to continue to bring to the floor a series of amendments created to alter healthcare policy.
But as the day began, it wasn't clear whether there would be 50 Republican votes for any GOP health plan in the Senate - skinny or not. "But my colleagues, make no mistake about it, skinny repeal is equal to full repeal".
The motion could have been defeated if not for the dramatic vote in favor cast by Sen.
"I think everybody in there, maybe except for one senator, promised their supporters, their voters that they supported repeal of Obamacare", Sen.
Senators are settling in for a possible all-nighter on the future of health care. Even after voting to move the amended leadership bill forward Tuesday evening he said that he wasn't necessarily supporting the bill itself.

Media reports indicate McConnell's "skinny" proposal would simply scrap the ACA's individual mandate to purchase insurance, the employer mandate to provide insurance and the ACA tax on medical devices.
"We're trying to achieve consensus, does that sound familiar?", Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said when asked whether there is a draft of the skinny bill.
"I would much prefer that we return to committee and go through the normal order".
Paul said being a doctor he has seen the "disaster that is Obamacare up close". Collins said, after voting no Tuesday night.
"It's extremely disappointing, and Senator Heller made that vote to take away health care from millions of American families, children, parents, and grandparents; hundreds of thousands of Nevadans", said Rep. Rosen.
