House Republicans have released their plan tonight for an Obamacare replacement, calling it the American Health Care Act.
Speaker Paul Ryan had this to say in a statement released earlier tonight:
The American Health Care Act is a plan to drive down costs, encourage competition, and give every American access to quality, affordable health insurance. It protects young adults, patients with pre-existing conditions, and provides a stable transition so that no one has the rug pulled out from under them.
Working together, this unified Republican government will deliver relief and peace of mind to the millions of Americans suffering under Obamacare. This will proceed through a transparent process of regular order in full view of the public.
There’s been some criticism of House Republican health care efforts from the Senate, including from Rand Paul over what he deemed a lack of transparency. Four other Senate Republicans also came out earlier today to say that they won’t support a plan that “does not include stability for Medicaid expansion populations or flexibility for states.”
