New Republican bill would retain and retool Obamacare


breaking us news

(Worthy News) - A Republican congressman is taking another swing at overhauling Obamacare even as most members of the party have set their sights on reforming other areas of healthcare.

Rep. Bruce Westerman, R-Ark., will be introducing a bill Tuesday that pulls from different healthcare bills that lawmakers have weighed in the last two years, from the failed GOP "repeal and replace" bill to the foundered Senate bipartisan Obamacare stabilization package. It also keeps a good portion of Obamacare in place and codifies healthcare provisions the Trump administration has authorized through rulemaking.

The details of the bill, known as the Fair Care Act, suggest that Westerman is trying to grapple with the reality that Obamacare is unlikely to be repealed and looking at ways to make it more conservative. Westerman said he hopes he can bring more Republicans on board even though many of them have moved on from the issue and are focused instead on tackling healthcare costs.
