Mrs Murkowski was one of two Republicans earlier on Tuesday to vote against allowing the debate on healthcare legislation reform to go forward.
While about 20 million people gained health insurance coverage through Obamacare, Republicans say the law has driven up premiums and forced consumers to buy insurance they do not want and can not afford.

The Senate is dedicating this week to having an open amendment process that lets lawmakers offer their ideas to change the bill. It's a process known in the Senate as "vote-a-rama".
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has estimated the Senate's replacement bill could lead to as many as 22 million fewer Americans being insured.
