i don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to review the senate bill. we should not be voting on this next week. >> they say they're going to fix health care, premiums are going to go down. there's no way the republican bill brings down premiums. >> there's no way in god's earth that this bill should be passed this week. >> we don't have too much of a choice because the alternative is the dead caucus of obamacare. >> the republican health care bill facing a critical week as senate republican leadership is pushing for a vote by friday. and as early as today, we could find out the true costs and
1:01 am
effects of the senate health plan. >> president trump acknowledging that russia meddled in the u.s. election, but who is he blaming? he's pointing his finger at former president barack obama. what's behind's trump's new strategy? good morning, welcome to "early start." i'm alison kosik. >> good morning, i'm dave briggs. monday, june 26th, 4:00 a.m. in the east. as soon as today, the congressional budget office assessment of the senate health care bill, that's the same cbo score that nearly scuttled the house version of obamacare, repeal and replace. senate's 52 republicans have an even narrower path to victory than their house colleagues. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell can only lose two votes. right now at least five republicans have already said they cannot support the bill in its current form. that's before the cbo score comes out. >> meantime, health and human services secretary tom price is making sweeping promises to help get the bill across the finish line. give you an example -- he says that a deep cut to medicaid is
1:02 am
not really a cut. >> what i'm telling you is that the system, the plan that we have, would put in place, would not allow individuals to fall through the cracks. we would not pull the rug out from under anybody. we would not have individuals lose coverage that they want for themselves and for their family. we want to make certain that health care is available to all americans. >> let's turn to who's correspondent atheen -- to white house correspondent athena jones for the latest. >> reporter: good morning. this could prove to be another monumental week in the republican effort to repeal and replace obamacare with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell determined to hold a vote on the bill this week. the problem is that at least right now there are enough republican senators who have expressed opposition to the bill to effectively kill it. several other republican senators have also expressed concerns. conservatives are worried that it doesn't go far enough to undo obamacare. meanwhile, more moderate senators are worried that it may
1:03 am
go too far, that it could leave the most needy and vulnerable behind, particularly because of the changes of medicaid. the cuts to the medicaid program that are included in this bill. now we could see the score from the nonpartisan congressional budget office as soon as today. that will let senators know the impact of this bill. how much will it cost? how will it impact the deficit? how many people could lose coverage under the senate's proposal? those numbers will be important for senators trying to make a decision about the bill. i should mention that president trump has been working the phones himself. he's spoken with senators ted cruz and rand paul to try to get them on board. a lot to watch this week as they try to get this bill, this promise that republicans have been running on for the last seven years. they are going to try to get the bill across the finish line. we'll be watching closely to see what happens. >> thank you very much.
1:04 am
the president confirming sunday, he called the house health care bill mean. >> mean, that was my term. i want to see -- i speak from the heart, that's what i want to see. i want to see a bill with heart. >> however, some critics say the senate bill also lacks heart. it makes the deepest cut to medicaid in 50 years. medicaid is the nation's biggest health insurer. it covers more than 70 million low-income americans. and the current proposal slashes funding by at least $800 billion over the next ten years. how does it do this? there are a few ways here. by ending, actually, the expansion program, reducing the growth rate of funding, and sending states a fixed amount of money instead of leaving it open-ended. each state's funding at the moment will be based on historical spending for each group. that includes children, disabled adults, and the elderly. republican lawmakers say the
1:05 am
current system encourages states to overspend on medicaid. most americans view the program favorably. president trump promises that no one who has medicaid is going to lose their coverage. however, the cbo estimate of the house bill found that 14 million americans will. so how will the senate version fare? we'll find out when the cbo releases its analysis expected today, analysis on costs, analysis on when the effects are on actually people. >> this is everything. there is crucial for senate republicans. it looks like president trump has a new strategy regarding russian interference have the 2016 election. he's now blaming former president barack obama. president trump escalating his attacks on mr. obama over the weekend, seizing on a stunning "washington post" report that quotes a former senior obama administration official. that unnamed official telling the "post," "we short of choked on blocking russia's efforts to influence the u.s. election." >> president trump tweeting over the weekend, saying, "since the
1:06 am
obama administration was told way before the 2016 election that the russians were meddling, why no action? focus on them, not t." "t" for trump. ryan nobles with the president's tactic for claims of russian meddling. >> reporter: good morning. president trump spent a lot of time during the campaign and after his election attempting to downplay russia's role interv e intervening in the 2016 election. after the report in the "washington post" that details the obama administration's response that the intelligence community's assessment, he seems willing to admit russia's efforts as long as he can blame president obama for not doing enough. one former administration official concedes in the report that they could have and perhaps should have done more. on "state of the union," adam schiff, a democrat and ranking member on the intelligence three, agreed. >> the american people needed to know. i didn't think it was enough to tell them after the election. rather, given the seriousness of
1:07 am
this, i think the administration needed to call out russia earlier, needed to act to deter and punish russia earlier, and i think that was a very serious mistake. >> reporter: schiff went on to see that even though president obama could have done more, it doesn't change the fact that president trump was part of the problem -- egging wikileaks and even russia on, telling them in emails to reveal -- telling them to reveal emails from hillary clinton's private server. it looks like president trump is using obama's inaction to deflect on his campaign's possible collusion with russia which he has denied. trump tweeted, "hillary clinton concluded with the democratic party in order to beat crazy bernie sanders. is she allowed to so collude? unfair to bernie." this, of course, comes at a time where special robert mueller continues his investigation. and at least three congressional committees continue their probe into russia's role in the 2016
