Released today, the new Senate healthcare planmodified by Sen. Ted Cruzgets Republicans most of the way there, and may actually stand a chance of passage. Under the modified plan, federal Medicaid costs would be decreased at the state level, and most Obamacare taxes and penalties (many of which werent complied with anyway) would disappear. Gone will be the day when my butcher Roland (who is healthy) is required to pay a $700 penalty each year he doesnt sign up for an overly-expensive government-mandated plan he cant afford.
I read earlier that McConnell released the bill and it didn’t include the Cruz Lee Amendment. Maybe he was able to get a motion thru that added it?!?
I was just going off of what the WSJ said. Think Cruz won enough support to slip the amendment into the formal bill that was re-unveiled this afternoon.
