GOP Plan Cost Savings, Adopts Much of Cruz Proposal

One of the conservatives’ favorite features of the new Senate health care bill — a provision allowing insurers to sell cheaper policies — has come under increasing fire from Obamacare defenders.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell included a version of a proposal, first offered by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), that would authorize states to let insurance companies sell less comprehensive and cheaper policies that currently are illegal under the Affordable Care Act.

Insurance companies could only sell such policies if they also sell plans compliant with Obamacare regulations.
