With a deadline looming at the end of the month, some Republican senators are making a last-ditch effort at repealing Obamacare.
Senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy will introduce the Graham-Cassidy bill Tuesday.
The bill provides federal money to states to implement their own health care plan rather than the current one system for all 50 states method.
While there will be significant portions of the previous GOP attempts at health care overhaul in the bill there are expected changes to appeal to more moderate GOP members.
Republicans have until September 30th to push the bill through Congress, even though the main focus has moved on to tax reform.
This final attempt will be a failed one if at least three Republican votes end up being a “no.”
