The parts of the report that sparked the most dramatic reactions had to do with a rapid escalation in the number of uninsured under the GOP healthcare plan as well as a bizarre structure for premium assistance that would have some paying more than eight times what they do now.


A scenario in which 21 or more Republicans in the House of Representatives vote against the bill would kill it. So far 13 GOP representatives are against it. The margin for error in the Senate is even more precarious. Republicans hold 52 seats and need at least 51 votes to pass the legislation.
