Senators Propose 'Plan B' for Troubled Health Bill

Updated on

Senate Republicans’ revised proposal to replace Obamacare would provide an added $70 billion to stabilize insurance exchanges over a decade compared with an earlier version, according to a summary of the plan obtained by Bloomberg News.

The change comes on top of $112 billion provided for the same purpose in an earlier measure by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. That effort stalled two weeks ago due to a lack of support from rival moderate and conservative Republicans.
