Senate Leadership Presses Forward with Health Care Despite Conservative and Moderate Opposition: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will push forward with the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) Tuesday despite moderate and conservative opposition to the bill.
McConnell will have the Senate vote on Tuesday to proceed on the Senate healthcare bill and allow lawmakers to offer amendments to the BCRA to get the necessary support to pass the bill.
Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) explained, “That then comes to the Senate, and then we can vote, once we get on that bill, to amend it in various ways. And lots of members have different ideas on how it should be best amended to replace what is really a failing Obama healthcare plan.”
