Washington - Republicans Modify Obamacare Repeal Bill To Appease Conservatives
Washington - Republicans released a modified health care bill on Monday, in an attempt to shore up support among both conservatives and moderates for their legislation to replace the Affordable Care Act.
Under the modified version, states would be allowed to require able-bodied Medicaid recipients without dependents to work beginning in October. Those changes were made to draw support from conservative members disappointed that the original bill didn’t go far enough to undo the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare.
The House will vote on the bill on Thursday.
