        Senate Republicans Reveal Health Care Bill | PBS NewsHour

        After weeks of drafting in secret, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the Senate version of the health care bill public on June 22, 2017. The bill shares broad strokes with the House of Representatives bill, whose approval rating is very low. It has drawn unanimous opposition from Democrats. The Senate bill would cut Medicaid funding more gradually in the short run than the House bill, but more significantly over time. The bill waives taxes associated with the Affordable Care Act and, if implemented, would allow states to waive required coverage of essential benefits.
