Transcript for Efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare are fracturing
In the meantime, major developments O capitol hill tonight. The new Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, but how would it affect seniors in the country? People with preexisting conditions, and medicaid, which covers millions of Americans? ABC's Mary Bruce tonight with how many Republican senators who have already said no. Reporter: At home -- And on capitol hill. Senate Republicans have been getting an earful for weeks. And tonight, a new healthcare bill. But the same old problem, can it get the votes to pass? To appease conservatives, the new version would allow insurers to offer cheaper bare bones plans that't cover essential health benefits. It could bring down costs for some.

GOP leaders say they want to move to a vote next week, but tonight, it's unclear if they will have the votes to even have that vote.
