On Thursday the House voted to pass the GOP’s replacement bill for the Affordable Care Act. Now, if Republicans want the American Health Care Act to become a law they must get it to pass in the Senate.
Now Senate Republicans are working on an Obamacare repeal plan. Out of the 13 Republican senators working on the bill none of them are women.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has chosen a team of 13 GOP senators to craft a healthcare bill.
Joining McConnell are Republican Senators Orrin Hatch (Utah), Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), John Thune (S.D.), Ted Cruz (Texas), Mike Lee (Utah), Tom Cotton (Ark.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), John Barrasso (Wyo.), John Cornyn (Texas), and Rob Portman (Ohio).

According to conservative news media Washington Examiner, Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), although not being part of the group, has played “an integral part of the discussions.”
Cornyn told reporters that the purpose of the group “was designed by the leader to sort of be a smaller group of people that represent the different perspectives and points of views within in our conference in an effort to get to yes.”
