Senate Republicans reveal updated health care bill

The Republican leaders of the U.S. Senate have unveiled their new plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. The bill would still cut Medicaid and it would allow insurers to sell plans with bare-bones coverage.

But the legislation is still in jeopardy with not enough votes to even start debating it on the Senate floor. Washington Bureau Reporter Alberto Pimienta has the details.

Thursday on the Senate floor Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the American people deserve better than the Affordable Care Act.

“All across the country Americans are losing choice and access,” McConnell said. “Already Americans living in 70% of the counties have little or no options for Obamacare insurance.”
