13 Senators who could impact health care
By Admin | June 21, 2017
Thirteen members of Congress have been working on a new healthcare plan, putting them at front and center of the issue. But thirteen Senators have the real power, according to political publication Roll Call.
Their list contains both moderate and conservative Republican senators, as well as a few Democrats.
Fifty-two of the 100 senate seats are Republican, and only a simple majority is needed to vote in a new law. Those behind the new bill are hoping that all fellow Republicans will vote in favor, eliminating any need for Democrat support.
But not all Republican senators are on board with what is being proposed to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, which became law in 2010.
