PENNSYLVANIA -- After an initial Obamacare repeal failure and weeks of backroom meetings, the public now has an understanding of exactly what the Senate Republicans intend to pass after a 142 page discussion draft was posted today.
According to The New York Times, the new GOP Health Care bill "would create a new system of federal tax credits to help people buy health insurance, while offering states the ability to drop many of the benefits required by the Affordable Care Act, like maternity care, emergency services and mental health treatment."
This bill is planning to eliminate the individual mandate, the employer mandate, and subsidies for out-of-pocket costs. It draft keeps Obamacare's popular pre-existing conditions policy and dependent coverage until 26.
The Senate is scheduled to vote on this as early as next week.
