New Senate GOP health care bill teeters on the brink

New Senate GOP health care bill teeters on the brink | 13 July 2017 | Republican leaders unveiled a new health care bill Thursday in their increasingly desperate effort to deliver on seven years of promises to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, aslo called Obamacare. They immediately lost two key Senate votes, leaving none to spare as the party's own divisions put its top campaign pledge in serious jeopardy. The reworked bill McConnell presented to fellow Republicans aims to win conservatives' support by letting insurers sell low-cost, skimpy policies. At the same time, he seeks to placate hesitant moderates by adding billions to combat opioid abuse and help consumers with skyrocketing insurance costs.
