Lawmakers Renew Attempts to Fix ACA
Congress is back in session and the effort to fix Obamacare is not dead yet. Two proposals were expected Wednesday and the chasm between them could not be wider.
On Wednesday Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and colleagues announced their plan. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Monday that it would “probably” be worse than doing nothing at all on the health law.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-V) has a bill of his own, detailing a single-payer system for the nation. He wrote an Op-Ed piece in the New York Times Wednesday, ahead of releasing his single payer bill.
