Three Republicans back healthcare alternative
Modern Healthcare

Three Senate Republicans on Monday proposed repealing the nation’s controversial healthcare law in favor of a replacement that eliminates most of the government coverage mandates it imposed and offers tax breaks to help those with lower income obtain coverage.

The supporters of the proposal, Sens. Orrin Hatch of Utah, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Richard Burr of North Carolina, said in a written statement that their goal was to “reduce healthcare costs and increase access to affordable, high quality care.”
