July 27, 2017
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the effort by congressional Republicans to pass a health care bill (all times local):
Doctors and a major health insurer group are criticizing the latest GOP health care proposal in the Senate.
That idea is called a "skinny repeal," because it would only get rid of the most unpopular parts of "Obamacare," such as the requirement that individuals carry health insurance or face fines.
The American Medical Association said in a statement that invites healthy people to opt out of the health insurance market, forcing premiums up for everyone else.
