"The Senate bill, unveiled today, is not a health care bill". In the Senate's version, the bill does not include waivers for states to opt-out of covering enrollees with pre-existing conditions. The proposed bill will take Louisiana back to the days when an ear infection meant a mother loses her job because she waited hours in an emergency room with her sick child. Elizabeth Warren says Republicans will use "blood money" from lost and broken American lives to pay for their overhaul of former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act.
South Dakota Sen. John Thune, chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, told the Times: "I think everybody wants to get to 'yes'".
MITCH MCCONNELL: We agreed on the need to free Americans from Obamacare's mandates, and policies contained in the discussion draft will repeal the individual mandate so Americans are no longer forced to buy insurance they don't need or can't afford.

Until Republicans can conclusively answer those questions, their health care plans are unlikely to produce a workable solution - any more than Obamacare.
To make up for lost federal money, SC would have to spend more state taxpayer money on Medicaid, restrict enrollment to cut the number of South Carolinians eligible for Medicaid or cut the number of services that Medicaid pays for.
Enactment of the Senate plan would cause a rise in the uninsured and end Medicaid expansion in 2024, compared to the 2120 phase out in the House bill passed in May. While this will prevent some middle class earners from receiving a subsidy, the bill also will allow those living below the poverty line to continue to receive subsidies, which aims to provide assistance to those living in states that chose not to expand Medicaid under Obamacare.
