WASHINGTON — After weeks of closed-door meetings, Senate Republican leaders Thursday unveiled a health care bill aimed at scrapping Obamacare in favor of a law that would make deep cuts in Medicaid, end the mandate that everyone buy insurance, repeal taxes on wealthy Americans and insurance companies, and strip funding from Planned Parenthood for a year.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., expects the bill to come to the floor for a vote as early as next week, after the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has estimated its cost and impact. It is not clear whether the legislation can attract enough support from both moderate and conservative Republicans to pass. Democrats are united against it, meaning that McConnell can afford to lose only two GOP votes.
