Senate Republicans released a revised bill to repeal and replace portions of ObamaCare on Thursday, including a provision similar to one sought by Sen. Ted Cruz allowing insurers to offer lower-cost plans.
But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell still faces the challenge of securing enough votes from conservatives and moderates with differing concerns to push the bill through.
“We need to bring this thing to closure,” Republican Sen. John Thune of South Dakota said Thursday on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom. “Get it to the finish line. And be able to get something on the president’s desk that will rescue people from a failed ObamaCare system that has markets collapsing and rates going through the roof.”
