New GOP Health Proposal Could Ditch Protections For People Who Are Sick

Rep. Tom MacArthur, R-N.J., has drawn up a proposed amendment to the GOP health care bill, hoping to attract enough support to pass the House.

The proposal allows states to put people with pre-existing conditions into high-risk pools and get rid of minimum health benefits for health insurance plans if they choose.
