The AARP on Tuesday slammed the latest ObamaCare repeal bill and called on senators to reject it.

The AARP also blasted the idea that the Senate could vote on the measure without a full Congressional Budget Office analysis of coverage losses and its impact on premiums.

"It is irresponsible for the Senate to take a vote on a bill impacting tens of millions of Americans and one-sixth of our nation’s economy without information on the potential consequences," the group said in a statement.

The Senate has until Sept. 30 to pass the bill before it loses its special reconciliation status. After that date, it would need 60 votes to pass the upper chamber instead of a simple majority.
