THE SENATE HEALTHCARE BILL IS DEAD
Written by Jennifer Snow on 07/18/2017
Winchester, VA – Yesterday evening, the Better Care Reconciliation Act, which was the Senate’s version of a repeal and replace healthcare bill, received enough Republican defectors to render the bill dead. The Hill reports that Republican senators Jerry Moran of Kansas and Mike Lee of Utah announced that they will not support the motion to proceed on the act. This brings the number of defectors to four, and the bill could withstand only three. Senator Moran said in a statement, “This closed-door process has yielded the [bill], which fails to repeal the Affordable Care Act or address healthcare’s rising costs. For the same reasons I could not support the previous version of this bill, I cannot support this one.”
