Republicans' final stand on Obamacare repeal

Hosted by

It looks like a familiar scenario is repeating itself in the US Senate, with Republicans taking one more shot at Obamacare. But the latest bill, by Senators Lindsay Graham and Bill Cassidy, is not the same as the one defeated when John McCain dramatically turned his thumb down in the early hours one recent morning.  

Republican Lindsey Graham proposes funding Medicaid with block grants to the states, legislation that liberal Democrat Elizabeth Warren calls, "just another version of the same old cruel, heartless, shameless plan that the Republicans have spent the last eight months trying to jam down the throats of the American people." Dylan Scott, who covers healthcare for Vox, says Republicans are staring at a September 30 deadline, after which repeal will be very difficult.
