Florida Senator, Bill Nelson Speaks about Healthcare

Washington D.C. - Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell is re-writing the republican's health care plan to replace Obamacare.
 
Changes made to the new healthcare plan will allow insurance companies to sell less comprehensive coverage than before, and the bill will add about 43 billion more dollars to fight the opioid crisis.  But the plan still includes deep cuts to Medicaid, that could leave millions of people uninsured. 
 
US Senator Bill Nelson from Florida says this bill is no better than the first republican plan, and passing it could cause trouble for American families; he states, "mama's and daddy's come in an tell the stories and tell me please don't take away my child's healthcare which is what this republican healthcare bill does. It decimates Medicaid."
 
If more than two republicans join Nelson and the democrats in voting against the bill, it will fail.  Senate leaders hope to vote next week.
