Republican senators unveil a new bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Senators Lindsey Graham (SC), Bill Cassidy (LA), Dean Heller (NV) and Ron Johnson (WI) released a bill that would repeal and replace the ACA with a block grant given annually to states to help people pay for health care. It would also protect those with pre-existing conditions. The block grant would be subject to a mandatory appropriation. The bill’s sponsors are optimistic about its prospects but other Republicans doubt the last-ditch effort to repeal the ACA will succeed this year.
