All we know is that, according to Senator John Cornyn,it will contain 80 percent of what was in the House bill.

He’s talking about a bill that the CBO said would leave 23 million additional people without health insurance by 2026. This is the same disastrous policy prescription that will cut $834 billion from Medicaid while handing out $661 billion in tax cuts, largely to the wealthy.
