Health Care Marketplace Overhaul -- Motion to Waive


Cruz, R-Texas, motion to waive applicable sections of the Congressional Budget Act with respect to the Murray, D-Wash., point of order that McConnell, R-Ky., amendment no. 270, to McConnell substitute amendment no. 267, violates section 311(a)(2)(b) of the Congressional Budget Act. The McConnell amendment would repeal extensive provisions of the 2010 health care overhaul, including: the individual and employer mandates, the optional Medicaid expansion, subsidies given to individuals buying health insurance and some of the taxes that fund the law. It would create a health care tax credit based on income and age, and would authorize money to stabilize the health care market and for high-risk individuals.
