Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Dean Heller (R-Ariz.), and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) unveiled their plan to repeal and replace Obamacare Wednesday.

The bill faces a high barrier to passage. Two Republicans were planning to announce a new repeal-and-replace proposal on Wednesday that has White House support.

After small business owners unequivocally told Congress and President Trump that they opposed efforts to dismantle Affordable Care Act, defund Medicaid, and slash vital benefits, some members in Congress are trying yet again.

While Trump offered the bill's sponsors some encouragement later in the afternoon, he stopped short of endorsing their plan.

The South Carolina senator called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel to make time for a vote on this legislation.

Indeed, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday is offering his competing plan - "Medicare for all".

"If you believe repealing and replacing Obamacare is a good idea, this is your best and only hope", said Graham at a press conference today.

Owens then continued to assault McMahon with punches and kicks before delivering a big splash off the top rope onto him. McMahon even clarified that he did not suspend Shane for attacking Owens, but for "not finishing the job".

Currently, Graham said, 40 percent of Obamacare taxes go to four states - California, New York, Massachusetts and Maryland. An earlier effort to replace Obamacare failed by one vote in July. I ask you to lead on this issue, so hard-working Wisconsinites like myself don't continue to get crushed by rising health care costs.

In one Senate committee, a bipartisan effort was under way on Tuesday to fix Obamacare without repealing it, led by the Republican health committee chairman, Lamar Alexander, and the panel's top Democrat, Patty Murray.

The bill would also give equal per-capita block grants of funding to states regardless of whether they expanded Medicaid under Obamacare or not.

"Here's what they're doing: they're comparing funding levels under their block grant in 2026 to funding levels under the ACA in 2020". States would have the ability to roll back protections for vulnerable populations - especially those living with HIV and hepatitis. The Republican says their proposal also eliminates the inequity in which three states receive 37% of Obamacare funds. The Senate parliamentarian has ruled that this fiscal year's reconciliation bill-the Senate's annual shot at passing legislation that can't be filibustered-will expire by September 30.

House Republicans, though, are generally seen as less amenable to a bipartisan stabilization bill than the Senate.

Additionally, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities released an analysis of what they're calling the Cassidy-Graham ACA Repeal, and the results would be disastrous for many Americans. HELP Chairman Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn. has set a self-imposed deadline at the end of the week to reach a consensus. "I don't know", said Edmund Haislmaier, a senior research fellow at The Heritage Foundation.
