"Unfortunately, the Graham-Cassidy bill is not a solution that works for Maryland", Hogan, a Republican, said in a statement. The Congressional Budget Office says it will not be able to determine the full impact of the legislation, including its effect on premiums and the number of people who have insurance, for several weeks.

There may well be replacements for the Affordable Care Act that would be an improvement on the original, but the Cassidy-Graham bill is not among them.

"I like the approach of Graham-Cassidy in the sense that it's a theory I've always supported, which is we're giving states more flexibility to design programs that actually meet our needs", Portman said.

Paul said he would support a partial repeal bill - as he did with the "skinny bill" that was voted on earlier this summer and failed to pass - but argued that the Graham-Cassidy bill is not that.

Senior Fellow Aviva Aron-Dine added, "This bill forces every state to build its own system from scratch".

Baker was joined by four fellow Republicans - Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Alaska Gov. Bill Walker, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, and Vermont Gov. Phil Scott - and five Democrats.

Graham-Cassidy would further cripple Medicaid by putting a per-person cap on what the federal government spends on the program.

Many Republicans have condemned Paul for obstructing what they believe to be the GOP's last chance to repeal Obamacare.

Alaska Governor Bill Walker has joined nine other state governors who have signed a letter of opposition to the Graham-Cassidy bill, while Senator Murkowski is now undecided. After Sept. 30, senators can no longer use the reconciliation process and would require 60 votes to pass a healthcare bill.

"States would have to raise taxes, cut other parts of their budget, or drastically cut Medicaid".

The Senate must act on the bill by September 30 or face a certain Democratic filibuster. "They're taking care of the people who give them money, like insurance companies, and we're all just looking at our Instagram accounts, liking things, while they're voting on whether people can afford to keep their children alive or not".

Mr Cassidy denied Mr Kimmel's characterisation of his bill, saying "what is being circulated is by those that wish to preserve Obamacare, and they're doing everything they can to discredit the alternative".
