Axios is reporting that the “skinny repeal” that Republicans are hoping to pass through Congress would defund Planned Parenthood for one year.
Members of Congress are apparently still editing the repeal, and the Planned Parenthood piece was added since yesterday.
Check it out:
Here’s what’s now in it:
Individual mandate repeal
Partial repeal of the employer mandate
A one-year defunding of Planned Parenthood
More money for community health centers
A provision addressing the ACA’s 1332 innovation waivers. The Senate replacement bill would have made them much more flexible, allowing ACA regulations like essential health benefits to be waived. It’s unclear how much more flexible they’ll be under skinny repeal, especially because it remains unclear whether the original expanded waivers complied with budget rules.
What’s not in it: A repeal of the ACA’s medical device tax.
Caveat: They’re still working. Leadership needs to see how much money is available and what members want to do. It’s going to be a long day.
