Republicans pinning Obamacare repeal hopes on one more health care bill: With just three weeks left in the GOP’s campaign to repeal Obamacare, a group of three senators — buoyed by a promise that President Trump would sign their bill — is launching a last-ditch effort to pass legislation.

The measure, introduced by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Dean Heller, R-Nev., would give states block grants to decide their own health insurance systems. The senators say that if states want to keep their Obamacare programs, they can, and if they want to repeal and do an entirely new system, they can also do that.

Most of the taxes that are part of Obamacare would remain in place to provide funding for the block grants.

Senators are running short on time because the budget procedure they would use to pass the legislation with a simple majority will expire at the end of the month.
