The Latest in Trumpcare repeal and replace effort: Republicans are still not done crafting their plan, and they haven’t yet finished debating it.
But House Republicans have made it clear they’re working on it, according to three sources familiar with the deliberations.
One of those sources said there is some “constructive” discussion happening about the bill in the House.
It would allow Americans to keep insurance, and Republicans are working to create a framework for how the legislation could work, these sources said.
A third source said it’s “a matter of some substantive discussion” about the legislation, but that no final decision has been made.
The House is expected to vote on the bill later this month.
The legislation has been described as a “framework” of sorts, and has not been formally introduced yet.
The bill has not yet been presented to the Senate, which has to take it up before the House votes on it.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told reporters Tuesday that the bill will likely be unveiled at some point, but did not elaborate.
Republicans have been hammering the White House and the administration over the bill, saying the administration is trying to “pursue a health care alternative that would do away with Medicaid and insurance subsidies” while at the same time threatening to pull out of the ACA.
The Trump administration, meanwhile, is claiming that it is merely discussing the bill and that it “would be better” if the legislation was approved in the Senate.
Democrats have been pushing to push through the legislation through the Senate before it’s sent to President Donald Trump, who is expected on Wednesday to sign it.
