Summary: ” Seven weeks following the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act, Senate Republicans unveiled their version of the health care bill Thursday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky released a “discussion draft” at an all-members meeting at 9:30 a.m. However, the details haven’t been publicized. The CBO estimated at about that the version of the American Health Care Act passed by the House would leave 24 million more Americans uninsured by 2026 than under the Affordable Care Act. Ever the dominant issue, health care still remains a critical focus, for many, as worried Americans swarmed congressional town hall meetings in recent months to voice their outrage. GOP leaders want a vote next week but with health care, for millions on the line, some Republican members are asking, What’s the hurry? On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he showed up at an agreement with President Donald Trump, who reportedly called the House bill “mean.” McConnell has disagreed, saying, “It’s going to have a profound, positive improvement over with the status quo. The status quo is simply unsustainable.” But when ABC News’ Mary Bruce asked McConnell if Americans have a right to see the negotiations process, he didn’t provide an answer.”
