GOP Weighs Nearly Unprecedented Move to Pass Health Care Bill

WASHINGTON - Republicans are considering advancing their health care bill without an analysis from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office on a major new provision that insurers warn would wreak havoc on customers and would amount to a virtually unprecedented procedural move in the Senate.

The CBO analyzed — or "scored" — a previous version of the Senate bill last month and found it would cover 22 million fewer people than current law. But that was before GOP leaders added a new amendment pushed by conservative members that would allow insurers to sell unregulated plans without protections for pre-existing conditions and without requirements that they cover various benefits guaranteed under Obamacare.
