Senate Republicans slip in ObamaCare repeal into tax bill


Senate Republicans confirmed to Fox Business on Tuesday that they will include a provision in their tax proposal that would repeal ObamaCare. Republicans said they would use the money to pay for GOP legislation that cuts corporate taxes and individual rates. The renewal of the failed effort to repeal ObamaCare came one day after President Trump applied pressure on GOP lawmakers to include the repeal in their tax overhaul legislation. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Tom Cotton of Arkansas had pushed for the repeal in the tax bill, just months after GOP efforts to dismantle the 2010 health care law had collapsed in the Senate. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said it "will cause millions to lose their health care and millions more to lose their premiums."
