President Donald Trump, the Democratic leadership, and the House Republican leadership have pushed forward a health care bill that would create a new health insurance marketplace, cut taxes and impose other significant tax increases.
The plan is expected to pass the Senate next week.
The bill would replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and is expected by congressional Republicans to lower premiums, cut government spending and increase the number of Americans enrolled in the insurance marketplace.
The House bill would increase taxes, but the Senate bill would cut taxes, lower spending and reduce taxes.
The Senate bill does not include a replacement for the ACA, though the GOP-controlled Senate will hold a vote on a replacement later this week.
The new plan would replace Obamacare with a single-payer health insurance system, which would be financed by an increase in taxes and an increase on premiums.
It would also replace the ACA with a Medicare-for-all system that would be funded by an increased payroll tax and a cut in Medicare spending.
The new plan also eliminates the individual mandate, a provision of Obamacare that requires individuals to purchase health insurance.
The GOP plan would also eliminate the state and local tax deduction for most Americans and also eliminate a number of other taxes.
Republicans have been pushing to pass a health-care bill as soon as possible after the election, arguing that it would provide relief to millions of Americans who have struggled with the ACA.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, a Republican from Wisconsin, has said that the Senate is the only place in the U.S. where the House can pass a plan, though he has said he has not ruled out a vote in the coming weeks.
Democrats are also pushing for the Senate to vote on the House bill as quickly as possible.
“President Trump is committed to getting to yes, and we’re going to get to yes as soon we can,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Monday.
Schumer said that he believes that a majority of the Senate would support a bill.
“We have the votes, but we need to do it.
I think we have a majority on the other side.
We have the people who are willing to vote for it,” Schumer said.
Trump on Tuesday tweeted that the bill is going to be voted on next week, but did not give any details.
“If it’s not passed, we’re done,” Trump said.
“It’ll be done by the end of the month.”
The president also said that Republicans will have to work with Democrats to make a deal.
Trump has repeatedly said he wants to be able to pass health care bills without a filibuster.
House Republicans have also threatened to filibuster the Senate’s plan, saying that it lacks enough protections.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said on Monday that Senate Republicans are “not ready” to pass any bill before the end the month.
“It’s too early to say what it will be, but I think if we can’t pass it this week, then it’s too late,” McConnell said on the Senate floor.
“But if we do it by then, I think it’s going to pass.”
The Senate has passed a number health care proposals this year.
The Trump administration is still looking to get a bill through the Senate, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Grassley, R–Iowa, said that if there is no legislation by the time the end-of-the-month deadline passes, the Senate will vote on an amendment to extend the deadline to Oct. 31.
