"I got a lot of public counsel from my friends in the Senate for the several months we were working on this", he said. Now, facing a deadline if they want to finish the legislation this summer, the Trump administration is looking to step up pressure on GOP senators.
CNBC has reached out to the press office for Senate Republicans for comment on the report.
Senate GOPers might nearly be done with their draft of the health care bill, but don't expect to read it soon.
It's estimated to kick 23 million people off of their health care, sharply increase out-of-pocket expenses for people in their 50s and 60s, gut Medicaid funding for nursing home care, and make health care unaffordable for people with preexisting conditions. However, since then, little information has been made public about the content of this bill, leaving many to wonder what exactly is happening with the AHCA.
Man arrested in connection to Manchester attack investigation
The 24-year-old was arrested after the attack at Manchester Arena, as police looked for evidence of a terror network in the area. Police officers gather on a street near a property that they raided in the Moss Side area of Manchester on 27 May 2017.
The fact is, Republicans senators do not care about people who will lose health care any more than Ryan does. That is a worsening of support for the plan since May 25, when the same poll found 57 percent of voters disapproved of it, and 20 percent approved.
The House bill includes an aggressive roll back of federal funds granted to Obamacare's Medicaid expansion program and would allow for some insurance companies to charge higher premiums to consumers with drug addictions.

Hatch's spokesman, Matt Whitlock, said the senator appreciated meeting with Trump.
"I don't know if we have text", Gardner answered. McCaskill went on to say that she has "no idea of what's being proposed". "There were no hearings in the House". "You really need to fish or cut bait here on something short term to stabilize the markets", he said. Early on, he warned that he didn't "know how we get to 50", and some on his leadership team hinted that he'd bring up the bill even if he didn't have the votes, as a way to move on the tax reform. In a letter to Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), 45 groups, led by Americans for Tax Reform, called on the Senate to repeal almost 20 taxes created under ObamaCare.
Later Tuesday, Trump traveled to Wisconsin where he lamented that Democrats would likely never vote for the GOP health care plan because they were more focused on blocking his agenda.
"Eight years ago, Democrats passed health care legislation the right way - holding public hearings, meeting with experts, listening to voters, and accepting amendments".
