Senate Obamacare Repeal Bill Expected Thursday Morning

Senate Republicans are expected to release their legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare on Thursday morning.

The Senate Republican caucus is meeting at 9:30 a.m. ET on Thursday morning so that leadership can unveil the bill text to all GOP senators. Going into the meeting on Thursday, many Republicans had yet to see a draft of the bill.

The bill is expected to be released to the public at 11 a.m. Thursday morning, according to Politico, but there’s a chance it could be leaked earlier.

A small group of Senate Republicans has been involved in the secretive process to craft the bill, leaving some senators unaware of the bill’s contents. Leaders are pushing for a vote on the bill next week, which has frustrated a few Republicans who feel they need more time to digest the bill before casting a vote.
