(Bloomberg) — Two Republican senators immediately rejected the party’s latest version of the Better Care Reconciliation Act health care bill Thursday, leaving the party no margin for additional defections as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell seeks a vote next week to change the Affordable Care Act.

Several holdouts the bill was designed to win over, including Rob Portman of Ohio, remain undecided and say they’re waiting to see an analysis of the measure’s impact by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget office, due next week.
