WASHINGTON — After years of failed GOP efforts to repeal Obamacare, a top Texas Republican lawmaker is taking a new tack on health care: proposing an alternative.
May 23 (BNA) -- Two Republican lawmakers May 23 unveiled legislation intended to be an alternative to the Affordable Care Act.
A pair of Republican lawmakers touted a health care plan Monday that would let states opt out of Obamacare, rather than repealing it outright, and deploy a program that uses a uniform tax credit to help Americans get insured.
As senior House Republicans work on a promised replacement for the Affordable Care Act, two GOP lawmakers plan to introduce an alternative Thursday that would dramatically reshape the nation’s health care system.
Two Republican lawmakers are breaking with their party’s long-stated goal of repealing ObamaCare by putting forward a healthcare plan that leaves parts of the system in place.
