The Washington Examiner reports: The Republican-led House of Representatives will vote this week on a sweeping, $1.1 trillion bill to replace Obamacare.
The House is expected to pass the bill by the end of the week, a GOP aide said Wednesday.
The measure would be a major step forward for the GOP’s effort to repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law, which the GOP says has been a disaster.
The legislation would take over Obamacare by repealing taxes, cutting federal spending and opening the government up to private insurers.
It would also create a commission to study how to fix the healthcare system and create a “death” panel that would be charged with determining whether to end coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
