From the outside, the Senate’s repeal bill looks simple: Repeal the ACA and replace it with a single-payer system.
From the inside, it’s not.
But it’s a stunningly complicated process, one that, if it gets through, could reshape the nation.
We’ve charted what the Senate is going to do, how it’s going to work, and what it could do in the months ahead.

Read moreThe bill is a “reconciliation” of two pieces of legislation that are the same, and thus the Senate can vote on both bills without having to go through the full legislative process.
Both bills are called the American Health Care Act (AHCA).
The AHCA, which has bipartisan support from Democrats, Republicans, and independents, would repeal the ACA’s individual mandate and the Medicaid expansion, but replace them with a system of government-run insurance, Medicare for all, and free or at least low-cost child care.
The two bills are essentially the same except for one key difference: They have very different proposals for what the ACA means to Americans, and how the Senate should deal with it.
The Senate’s proposed repeal bill would be a bill that would repeal and replace the ACA, and then replace it on a state-by-state basis with its replacement.
That means it would replace the whole ACA, not just individual mandate provisions, with its own, separate system.
The bill would then repeal the Medicaid Expansion, and replace that with a new version of Medicare for All, which would offer more universal coverage, including to people with pre-existing conditions.
Then it would repeal all of the ACA regulations, with a small but significant exception, and put them in place on a statewide basis, without changing how Medicare for People works or how the ACA works.
The bill would not have to replace the Medicaid program with a different system.
In fact, the bill would repeal everything in the ACA.
It’s hard to imagine the Senate passing a bill as radical and as costly as the Senate has proposed.
The AHRC and Medicare forAll are the two most popular parts of the original ACA, but they are only about 4.5% of the entire bill.
The AHCA is a different bill, with the House taking over the Senate, and the House’s version of the bill has bipartisan backing, so the Senate version could easily pass.
The Senate’s proposal has a very different political complexion, however.
The House version has no specific provisions about healthcare, and it would likely have to deal with health care issues in some fashion.
The proposed AHCA would also not have a single vote, and so would have to be approved by a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.
The goal of the AHCA proposal is to “rebuild” the ACA on the Senate-passed ACA and the ACA itself.
That process would be similar to the way the House was able to do this in 2013, and is already being tried out in states across the country.
The House proposal was also rejected by the Senate earlier this year, which means that the Senate will have to do some work to come up with something that will be able to pass the Senate with a simple majority vote, rather than the 60-vote threshold that was used to pass its bill in the House.
There are two main reasons for that.
First, the AHRC would need to be passed with a filibuster, which requires a simple 51-vote majority.
The more votes needed, the more difficult it is to get 60 votes to pass an ACA bill.
The second reason is that the AHCC will not be in the bill itself, but rather in a joint resolution, which could require that the House and Senate approve it.
So the AHTC and AHRC are separate things, and there’s a lot of work that needs to be done before the Senate could actually pass one.
The way the AHCTA was passed was by the House with a narrow majority.
Now, that is no longer the case.
The current Senate rules allow a simple-majority vote on a bill, but not on an AHCA.
The key point here is that this is not an Obamacare repeal bill.
It is a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and to replace it.
The only change to Obamacare is that it would be replaced with a Medicare forall system.
The ACA has changed dramatically since its passage in 2010, but it has not changed the fundamental structure of the health care system.
Obamacare is still in place, and will remain so for the foreseeable future.
Obamacare has changed the structure of healthcare.
The reason why the Senate would not take up a bill like the AHAC was not because it is not a replacement for
