Conservative Senators Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Mike Lee, R-UT, are pushing for changes to the Senate health care bill that would allow insurers to sell plans that do not comply with Obamacare regulations so long as they sell plans that do meet those rules.
Conservative senators seeking changes to the chamber’s ObamaCare repeal-and-replace legislation met Thursday with GOP leaders and the Senate parliamentarian.
Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) are pushing for a change to the bill that would allow insurers to sell plans that do not comply with ObamaCare’s insurance regulations if they also sell plans that do meet those rules.
They say that change would help win their votes for the legislation, which they currently oppose.
