“Obamacare repeal is on the brink of coming back from the dead,” according to Politico.

“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and his leadership team are seriously considering voting on a bill that would scale back the federal government’s role in the health care system and instead provide block grants to states, congressional and Trump administration sources said.”

“It would be a last-ditch attempt to repeal Obamacare before the GOP’s power to pass health care legislation through a party-line vote in the Senate expires on Sept. 30.”

CNN: “Just when it seemed that the GOP had moved on from its repeated and failed attempts to gut the health care law, what was deemed until recently a long-shot proposal from Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy is gaining rapid steam on Capitol Hill.”

“‘I take it very seriously,’ Schumer told reporters Monday. ‘The message to the American people is: This bill is worse than the last bill. It will slash Medicaid, get rid of (protections for) pre-existing conditions. It’s very, very bad.'”
