On Tuesday, Kimmel said in his monologue that the bill introduced by Cassidy and fellow Republican Sen. "He said he would only support a healthcare bill that makes sure a child like mine would get the health he needs, no matter how much money his parents make".
"We have no real competition", Portman says."We have 42 of our 88 counties only have one insurer now, which is not competition".

But, he said, "I am politicizing my son's health problems because I have to".
Senate Republicans may hold a vote on a measure proposed by Sens.
It would likely leave even fewer people covered than the bill that failed in July, and eliminate the minimum basket of benefits mandated by Obamacare. States can then apply for what are known as 1332 waivers that allow states to relax some of Obamacare's regulations to bring down costs.
