ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: As the vote on the healthcare bill to dismantle Obamacare gets delayed, Republican Senator Rand Paul continues to oppose the Republican bill, saying he "just doesn't see it." "I think the longer the bill's out there, the more conservative Republicans are gonna discover that it's not repeal and the more that everybody is gonna discover it keeps the fundamental flaw of Obamacare," Paul said on CBS' "Face the Nation". Eight to 10 Republican U.S. senators have serious concerns about Republican healthcare legislation to roll back Obamacare, moderate Republican Senator Susan Collins, who opposes the bill, said on Sunday. The Senate, which is delaying its consideration of the bill while Arizona Republican Senator John McCain recuperates from surgery to remove a blood clot, will take it up as soon as all senators are available, Senator John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republican senator, said. McCain's absence casts doubt on whether the Senate would be able to pass legislation to repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act, Democratic former President Barack Obama's signature legislative achievement, commonly known as Obamacare.
