Right now, Republicans are in a quandary, trying to keep their campaign promises to repeal and replace Obamacare. So far, nothing they have proposed seems acceptable. The only way to have a healthcare plan that appease everyone will be so expensive that it will either bankrupt the US government and/or every American citizen. Sen Ted Crus has a plan to revamp a major part of Obamacare and help Republicans keep their promises and save face.
A low-flying proposal from Sen. Ted Cruz to overhaul a major component of ObamaCare is attracting the kind of conservative enthusiasm that could prove critical in the broader GOP push to repeal and replace the 2010 law.
The Texas Republican senator has offered up his idea as an amendment that would allow insurers to offer bare-boned policies that don’t meet Affordable Care Act standards — provided they also offer plans in compliance.
Whether the Tea Party-backed senator’s gambit will help bring an overhaul bill to President Trump’s desk remains uncertain, considering the proposed change could drive away GOP moderates…
Chances are, nothing Cruz or any other Republican comes up with will be acceptable to Democrats. Sen. Chuck Schumer Senate Minority Leader, has offered to work with Republicans to craft a new healthcare bill, however, Senate Republicans see through his offer as just being a way to force Republicans into doing what Democrats want. Considering the stalemate in the Senate, Cruz’s plan is beginning to pick up support from other Republicans.
