Senate Republicans Unveil Latest Health Care Plan Amid Deep Divisions

House Speaker Paul Ryan R-Wis. announces that he is abruptly pulling the troubled Republican health care overhaul bill off the House floor short of votes and eager to avoid a humiliating defeat for President Donald Trump and GOP leaders at the Capitol

The Republicans now control 52 seats in the Senate, and 50 - with Vice President Mike Pence casting the tie-breaking vote - are needed for the bill to pass the upper chamber. The "score" is a budget analysis of a piece of legislation.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell unveiled the new healthcare proposal on Thursday, the latest bid to fulfill Trump's promise of ending Obamacare.

A Senate Republican aide told Vox that the amendment is created to preserve the bill's compliance with budget reconciliation rules.

Here's a look at what may be in the new bill. "The onetime presidential candidate said, "(In the latest version) we are keeping more of the Obamacare taxes ... and keeping more of the Obamacare subsidies and adding $70 billion to the insurance bailout superfund". Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), is included in the bill, but it's not exactly the same as the one favored by Cruz and Lee.

"Either way, the state would have a pot of money from the federal government to get the best health care outcomes for their residents", Graham said. And they would be allowed to sell plans that do not cover essential services, which would be cheaper and attract healthier people. It would also allow affordable health plans with less coverage to be introduced into the market. Dental benefits for adults are optional. A provision by Mr. Cruz would let insurers discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions. Insurers probably would not even offer non-compliant plans. In the new plan, $45 billion would be available to states.

What from the first Senate bill likely stays in the revised bill? The New York Times is reporting the bill will keep the 3.8% tax on investment income and the 0.9% payroll tax.

The nonpartisan agency last month estimated the Senate's original version would leave 22 million more Americans uninsured in 2026 than under Obamacare.

Both would apply to those making over $200,000 per year as an individual, or $250,000 for couples who file joint returns.

The bill would expand the use of health-savings accounts; make cuts to Medicaid; and give tax credits to consumers to buy insurance.
