A group of conservative policy advocates has released another proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, which has been in the works now for a few months.

The details: Policy-wise, it’s basically the same as the Graham-Cassidy repeal bill, but without dramatic cuts to traditional Medicaid. It would eliminate most of the ACA’s consumer protections/benefit mandates and convert federal subsidy funding, as well as the law’s Medicaid expansion, into block grants to the states.
