A look at the senators crucial to action on health care
May 5, 2017
WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans get their shot at crafting a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
The version that narrowly passed the House on Thursday didn't win over many in the Senate, where lawmakers insist they'll come up with their own version. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., spoke to President Donald Trump after the House vote and is now working with roughly a dozen other senators — all male — to write a new bill.
There is no effort to include Democrats in the process as Republicans are intent on ramming any legislation through on a simple majority vote.
