On June 22, the Senate released its long-awaited health care bill to repeal much of the Affordable Care Act. Known as the Better Care Reconciliation Act, it has a number of components that are similar to the American Health Care Act from May. Senate leadership has a desire to vote on this bill during the coming week.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) will release a cost estimate or “score” for the bill early this week. However, at least five Republican senators have said they are going to vote against the bill in its current form. With all Senate Democrats expected to vote no, Republicans can lose no more than two votes.
