Don’t be fooled. The fight over the Senate’s “healthcare” bill is far from over. Senator Mitch McConnell is reassessing and planning to come back in July with a bill that he and the GOP can pass.
Time news reports:
“We’re gonna continue the discussions within our conference, on the differences that we have and that we continue to try and litigate,” McConnell said in brief remarks to reporters about the decision. As of Tuesday evening, 9 Senators openly oppose the legislation, although three announced their opposition after the vote was officially delayed.
The non-partisan Congressional Budget Analysis released a report Monday estimating that the legislation would increase the number of uninsured by 22 million within a decade.
