“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Tuesday he was delaying a scheduled congressional recess by two weeks – the legislative equivalent of locking his conference in a room and telling them no one is leaving until this Obamacare repeal thing is sorted out once and for all. And indeed, on Thursday morning – shortly before one or more revised versions of the GOP health care bill are set to be unveiled – all Republicans senators are scheduled to convene at a meeting called by McConnell.

At least two versions are in contention: the revised version, and a version that also includes an amendment from Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. The Cruz amendment would remove the minimum coverage requirements imposed by the Affordable Care Act. It would make cheaper plans available, but they would be cheaper because they wouldn’t cover many basic medical conditions. And, according to one study, the amendment would result in much higher premiums for some 1.5 million people with preexisting conditions.”*
