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.
