Mississippi reacts to Senate Republicans health care bill

Mississippi politicians and health experts conveyed mixed reactions toward the 142-page Senate Republican health care bill, dubbed the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017, released Thursday morning.

“It is clear Obamacare is damaging to Americans. The House and Senate have offered solutions; and like the president said, negotiations will continue. I am confident a Republican Congress will produce legislation that is far superior to the current law. However, continuing to expand Obamacare is not a repeal.” — Gov. Phil Bryant
