WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - The Senate is expected to release its revised health care bill on Thursday. Senate GOP leaders want a vote next week, but the legislation is dividing Republicans.

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price sat down with National Correspondent Michelle Macaluso for a one-on-one interview about the challenges in getting the Senate health care bill passed and expressed confidence that the Senate will repeal much of Obamacare.

“I think we will get it done, I think we will get it done before the time frame in August,” said Price.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., delayed the start of the August recess to get the GOP to work on health care reform and other legislative items.
