Hatch backs new GOP Senate health care bill, Lee undecided

And indeed, on Thursday morning - shortly before one or more revised versions of the GOP health care bill are set to be unveiled - all Republicans senators are scheduled to convene at a meeting called by McConnell.

Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah and Tim Scott of SC all publicly said Thursday they hadn't decided whether to back McConnell's reworked bill. If they did, ObamaCare's "single risk pool" price controls would make secure, guaranteed-renewable health insurance impossible by taxing such plans to death.

Multiple versions were submitted to the Congressional Budget Office for evaluation last week. It's unclear whether chronic dishonesty is considered a preexisting condition under the new legislation.

\U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is surrounded by members of the media after he viewed the details of a new health care bill.

Under the bill, states with premiums that are at least 75 percent of the national average would qualify to keep one percent of the legislation's long-term insurance stability fund. Alaska is the only state with premiums that high.

The new bills hopes to lure in conservative factions by letting insurers sell low-priced, bare-bones policies and hopes to lure moderates with added billions to combat opioid abuse and help states rein in consumers' skyrocketing insurance costs. Under what is now being proposed, Montana's self-employed, which includes me, will not be able to afford insurance.

If Senate Republicans are able to pass either of the proposals, House Speaker Paul Ryan says his colleagues in the House are committed to making sure that a repeal and replace bill ultimately ends up on the president's desk. Collins indicated on Twitter today that she will not vote yes on a motion to proceed with the bill. The original bill only provided $2 billion.

The best part of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's revised plan, released Thursday, would let people use money from their tax-free health savings accounts to pay for insurance. "I will be very angry about it and a lot of people will be very upset", he said. The proposed health care bill does nothing to address the cost of healthcare and the cost of pharmaceuticals. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, told reporters Tuesday. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has hinted he's working on a way to do just that in the coming days.
