The goal is to convince the public that they will have a chance to vote on the measure if they have a Republican majority in the Senate.
The GOP’s legislative task force is expected in the coming weeks to come up with a replacement.
According to The Hill, senators on the bill will include Sens.
Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Shelley Moore Capito (R, West Virginia), Tom Cotton (R) and Mike Lee (R), and Reps.
David Young (R., Utah), Chris Stewart (R.N.C.) and Bill Flores (R.-Texas).
According to the Hill, the GOP is trying to convince Senate Democrats to support the bill with an offer of more money for states and a waiver of Obamacare’s requirement that people buy insurance on the ACA marketplaces.
If Democrats do not agree, the bill would then face a procedural vote in the chamber and be signed into law without amendments.
The Senate passed its version of the healthcare legislation in May, and House Republicans passed their version of it on Friday.
The legislation would be a massive overhaul of the ACA and a major overhaul of Medicaid.
It would replace the ACA’s tax credits for insurance and Medicaid with block grants that would pay for the bill, and would give states a tax credit of up to 30 percent of their residents’ incomes for the cost of health insurance.
Republicans are hoping that this plan will give them a competitive advantage in the 2020 midterm elections.
However, a recent report by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that the Medicaid expansion could actually lead to cuts in health care spending.
