Lawmaker: O-Care replacement isn’t dead

A Republican lawmaker is optimistic that the House will consider a conservative alternative to ObamaCare before the end of the year.

Rep. Larry Bucshon (R-Ind.), a cardio-thoracic surgeon, said that his leadership team is “working through possibilities” to move a cohesive GOP policy alternative to the president’s healthcare law.

{mosads}Asked if the election of Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Steve Scalise (La.) to the House majority whip will increase the chances that the chamber votes on the RSC-backed “American Health Care Reform Act of 2013,” Buschon responded, “That’s a possibility.”

Buschon, a co-sponsor of the bill, added that the bill “extends insurance across state lines [and] makes headway towards price transparency.”

The RSC measure has 130 co-sponsors.
