Senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy, authors of the bill, had offered to boost federal healthcare funds by 43% in Maine.

Mr Trump said that "at some point" there will be a repeal and replace of Obamacare.

A Republican plan to replace Obamacare will not be voted on this week, effectively signalling its collapse.

The decision came less than 24 hours after a pivotal Republican senator, Susan Collins of ME, declared firm opposition to the repeal proposal, all but ensuring that Republican leaders would be short of the votes they needed.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, remains undecided. Bill Cassidy would come back some day, but acknowledged that the effort is dead for now.

Emerging from a closed-door meeting, senators were quick to confirm that no vote would take place on the Graham-Cassidy bill. Cruz had said, however, that he wanted to support it.

Bye, Graham-Cassidy! No one will miss you!

Republicans had a hard deadline of September 30 to pass legislation to repeal Obamacare with just 50 votes. Lindsay Graham of SC of the bill that represented Republicans' latest attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act. "No, but we got it done.We go and we do reform that's common sense, and we don't care about the politics".

"We haven't given up on changing the American health-care system ..."

Barring a reversal, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., must decide whether to hold a roll call at all.

In July, Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) cast the deciding vote against repealing Obamacare, complaining about the rushed process.

"Patience is a virtue".

"It's about the process and the short period of time, and the leader could do nothing about that", Graham said. "The fact that a new version of this bill was released the very week we are supposed to vote compounds the problem". "Once again, Senate Republican "leadership" has demonstrated that its promises are meaningless". Even if Vice President Mike Pence pulls a tiebreaker vote in their favor, with three senators out and assumedly no Democratic senators on board, the chances of the bill's passing appear remote. "U.S. Senate can not get the text of a bill on a Sunday night, then proceed to a vote just days later, with only one hearing - and especially not on an issue that is intensely personal to all of us".
