Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday the chamber is drawing closer to having a version of the House GOP's healthcare bill ready for a floor vote.

According to The Hill, the Kentucky Republican hinted at having a working proposal ready soon.

"We're getting closer to bringing up a proposal that we can bring up in the near future," McConnell said, The Hill reports.

"We've had plenty of time to discuss this issue. … We're getting close to having a proposal to whip up and take to the floor."

Republicans in the Senate have predicted in recent days and weeks that a bill would be ready for a vote sometime this summer before the August recess.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn even said last week the Senate will vote on an Obamacare replacement bill before the end of June. Another report this week backed that claim.

Not all Republicans are on the same page, however. Sen. Lindsey Graham has doubts about whether the party can get healthcare reform done by the end of 2017, while Sen. Ron Johnson said tax reform "is an easier lift" than healthcare reform.
