Senate GOP health bill would let insurers sell skimpy coverage; GOP support still uncertain

Senate Republican leaders' new health bill would let insurers sell skimpy coverage; GOP support for plan still uncertain.

In a high-stakes bid for conservative support, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has agreed to demands from Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas to allow insurers to sell low-cost, skimpier plans as part of a new but still-reeling health care bill being released Thursday, two GOP aides said.

However, including that provision seems likely to alienate moderates and perhaps other conservatives. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, who'd partnered with Cruz, tweeted that the version they crafted wasn't in the bill, adding, "Something based on it has, but I have not seen it or agreed to it."

Let's just do it ala carte. I'll take trauma insurance. I know they can probably do a gallbladder or appendix surgery and not kill me, so I might buy that, too. Otherwise, they can shove it.  They are no good with most other things. I'd take my chances.

The easiest way to fix health insurance, is to allow the interstate commerce of health insurance.
