They Have A Plan

The big reveal is upon us:
“After months — and years — of work, we are quickly approaching the introduction of a consensus Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare,” a Republican aide told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “There was a large staff meeting at the White House Friday led by OMB Director Mulvaney to identify and resolve the few outstanding issues.”

While a number of members expressed reservations over certain provisions in the draft of the legislation leaked in February, members of the House Committee on Ways and Means and House Committee on Energy and Commerce worked overtime to hash out the details. Conservatives voiced concerned about tax credits in the plan, which they feel create another entitlement program. But a second draft bill, which leaked to the press Friday shows significant changes have been made to the initial version of the legislation.

“The health care committees in Congress worked over the weekend with the White House to tie up loose ends and incorporate technical guidance from the administration. Saturday there was also a call with the speaker, Chairman Walden, Director Mulvaney, Secretary Price, Andrew Bremberg, and others, and House and Senate staff worked throughout the day to close out open issues,” the GOP aide continued. “We are in a very good place right now, and while drafting continues, we anticipate the release of final bill text early this week.”
You will know what's in it before they pass it...
