Late Monday night, House Republicans unveiled a revised ACA replacement bill in the hope of swaying skeptical moderate and conservative Republicans.

Under the revised version, states have more latitude to decide who gets Medicaid, as well as provide help to older people who could see their premiums skyrocket under the original GOP bill.

President Trump met today with House Republicans on the bill today. The House vote is slated for Thursday.
