Senators Richard Burr (NC), Tom Coburn (OK) (both of whom voted ‘yes’ on cloture motion to fund Obamacare), and Orrin Hatch (UT) (who refrained from the aforementioned vote), unveiled the Patient Choice, Affordability, Responsibility, and Empowerment (CARE) Act – a legislative plan that repeals Obamacare and then replaces it with common-sense, patient-centered reforms that reduce health care costs and increase access to affordable, high-quality care.

Following today’s release of the plan, the three Senators will work with their Senate colleagues and experts across the health care community to further refine and improve upon the proposal, with the goal of building consensus and introducing legislation.
