More Answers Needed About Obamacare Replacement Bill

"Rep. John Faso on Wednesday said that the bill put forward by House Republicans to replace the Affordable Care Act is not a panacea, but he likes 'the general direction' of the legislation." , as reported by Josefa Velasquez for Politico NY.

"During an Interview on Talk 1300, host Fred Dicker asked the freshman Republican from Kinderhook if he was ready to vote in favor of the bill, called the American Health Care Act, in its current iteration."

" 'Well, I need more answers… but I like the general direction in which they’re trying to move to a more patient-centered health care system, employing some important insurance market reforms,' Faso said. 'Other changes have to happen in legislation where we’d have to have at least some Democratic support in the U.S. Senate to pass.' "
