Transcript for 3rd Republican senator declares 'no' vote on health care
More on the Republicans' last-ditch effort to repeal the affordable care act. Time is running out. GOP lawmakers are facing a Saturday deadline and our congressional correspondent, Mary Bruce, is on capitol hill with the latest on where things stand. Good morning, Mary. Reporter: Good morning, robin. After seven years, Republicans still can't agree on a path forward to overhaul Obamacare. This morning, three Republicans are now a no, which means for now, this latest health care bill isn't going anywhere. With the bill facing a growing backlash -- This morning, the latest Republican health care plan appears to be dead. Maine senator Susan Collins delivering what is the fatal blow saying she cannot support the bill. It is clear to me that the graham/cassidy bill was not the answer. Reporter: Her objections to the bill? The deep cuts to medicaid. Weakened protections to people with pre-existing conditions, and the fear that premiums for many would likely rise. She joins Rand Paul and John McCain, but they are vowing to fight on. We're going to press on, and it's okay to vote. It's okay to fall short if you do for an idea you believe in. Reporter: Opposition to the bill boiled over on Monday as protesters took to the halls of the capitol. If you want a hearing, you better shut up. Reporter: Protesters hauled off and arrested. Many in wheelchairs. This woman came from Wyoming for her voice to be heard. Her daughter is in a wheelchair. Her daughter-in-law, battling her fourth round of cancer. What do you want lawmakers to hear from you and everyone else in this line? Be human. Care. Care about insurance for everyone. Not just yourselves or your relatives. Care about everyone, even the poor. They need it. Reporter: So what comes next here? Well, Republicans will now likely have to work with Democrats on a bipartisan solution to repair Obamacare, but for now, their signature promise to repeal and replace it is out of reach, George. They have to decide whether to pull the plug around noon today. Thanks very much.
