Source: NBC News

“Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Sunday morning that ‘all 48 Democrats’ in the Senate are on board with the health care deal negotiated between Senators Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Patty Murray, D-Wash. … After numerous attempts at repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act failed to pass Congress, the two leaders of the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, Sen. Alexander and Sen. Murray, started creating an outline for legislation that’s aimed at stabilizing the health insurance markets. … Alexander announced 12 Republican co-sponsors to the bill this week, and McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader, told CNN on Sunday that he would allow votes on the legislation if he felt President Trump was behind it.” (10/23/17)
