This should be fun. I guess the easy prediction here is it will be slightly “less mean” than the House bill meaning only 17 to 19 million will lose their insurance. And bye bye Medicaid. And it will probably pass because what political ramifications besides some heated Town Halls have the GOP had to deal with so far?
Senate Republicans are expected to release their legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare on Thursday morning.
The Senate Republican caucus is meeting at 9:30 a.m. ET on Thursday morning so that leadership can unveil the bill text to all GOP senators. Going into the meeting on Thursday, many Republicans had yet to see a draft of the bill.
The bill is expected to be released to the public at 11 a.m. Thursday morning, according to Politico, but there’s a chance it could be leaked earlier.
A small group of Senate Republicans has been involved in the secretive process to craft the bill, leaving some senators unaware of the bill’s contents. Leaders are pushing for a vote on the bill next week, which has frustrated a few Republicans who feel they need more time to digest the bill before casting a vote.
