Senate Republicans to Release Healthcare Reform Bill Thursday

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that US Senate Republicans plan to release their draft of a new healthcare bill on Thursday and that the legislation is likely to move to the Senate floor next week.

 





For weeks, behind closed doors, Senate Republicans have been working on legislation aimed at repealing and replacing major portions of the Affordable Care Act, former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law also known as Obamacare. 



An estimated 23 million people could lose their healthcare under the House plan.


 McConnell said Tuesday the Senate healthcare bill would differ from the House version, but he failed to elaborate. 


In the time since Obamacare became law in 2010, Republicans have campaigned on repealing the program, which extended insurance coverage to millions of additional Americans through both subsidized private insurance and an expansion of Medicaid.
