POLITICO – The Senate will vote next week on the latest bill to repeal Obamacare, a spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Wednesday.
“It is the Leader’s intention to consider Graham/Cassidy on the floor next week,” the spokesperson said.
The latest proposal, written by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.), would turn federal health insurance funding into block grants for states. The bill does not yet have the public support of 50 senators, but GOP insiders are growing more confident it will pass.
So I guess we’re soon to find out just how many Senators support the bill and how many don’t.
