Buckle up for an incredibly busy week in health care — both in the Senate and across the states.
Senate Republicans are still reportedly charging toward a vote before the July 4 recess. This leaves 10 working days to actually draft that bill, get a Congressional Budget Office score, and hold the vote itself.
We already have a sense of the broad contours of the Senate bill. It will roll back the Affordable Care Act’s taxes on wealthier Americans, thereby cutting off funding for the health law’s coverage expansion. But the questions that still loom large over the bill — how long senators will wait to sunset the Medicaid expansion, for example, and how they will structure the premium tax credits — are still ones that need to get sorted out over the coming weeks.
