If we are fortunate, there will be a deliberate and fact-based debate in the Senate between three strategies:
- On the progressive side, we will see a Medicare for All bill from Senator Sanders.
- On the right, we will see a total repeal without a replacement from Senator Paul and Senator Cruz.
- And in the middle, the already offered Cassidy-Collins Bill, which is essentially the ACA: wherein the states that like it can keep it and those that do not get their allocation as a block grant and they can use the money as they like.
If the middle course can pull over the Dems, it may pass and the House will have the same coalition of Dems and moderate Republicans. — Steve Larchuk
