GOP Obamacare Repeal Bill Gets Last-Minute Revisions

Senate Republicans made revisions to their latest Obamacare repeal bill late Sunday in a last-ditch effort to appease lawmakers who had concerns about the legislation, Politico reports. Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy reportedly revised the legislation to boost federal funding for Arizona, Kentucky, and Alaska. Instead of losing federal funding as they would have under the original legislation, Arizona will see a 14 percent increase, while Kentucky will get an additional 4 percent and Alaska an extra 3 percent, according to the report. The measure appears aimed at winning support from the states’ senators, John McCain, Rand Paul, and Lisa Murkowski—all of whom either came out against the original version of the bill or expressed reluctance to support it.
