Senate Republicans make efforts to revive ACA repeal

Facing pressure to deliver on their seven-year promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Senate Republicans have initiated one more repeal effort for U.S. healthcare. Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana recently proposed their Graham-Cassidy bill. The new legislation would repeal many health care law requirements and bundle funding into block grants to states.

The clock is ticking as the September 30 deadline draws near to pass budgetary legislation with a simple majority. After that date, any legislation on health care Senate hopes to pass will need 60 votes, a difficult feat for Republicans. The bill is undergoing the cost estimation and coverage impact process with the Congressional Budget Office.
