New Obamacare Repeal Bill Looms in Congress
So much for remission. Republicans have until Sept. 30 before procedural rules that allow them to repeal Obamacare with a simple majority expire. So despite a dramatic defeat in their last attempt, the GOP is back for more with the Graham-Cassidy bill. Some predict it’ll leave more Americans without coverage than previous repeal bills, but the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office hasn’t yet finished its analysis. So far two Republican senators have indicated they won’t vote for the new bill — and a third “no” would crush its chances.
