The House of Representatives is set to vote next week on a bill that would repeal ObamaCare.
The bill, dubbed the Better Care Reconciliation Act, would replace ObamaCare’s taxes, subsidies and insurance coverage with a $1 trillion tax cut that Republicans say will help businesses.
But many Republicans oppose the bill, saying it does not go far enough to help small businesses and that it would increase the cost of insurance and leave more people uninsured.
The vote comes as Republicans are trying to salvage a fragile health care bill.
The GOP is expected to vote on the Senate version of the bill next week.
The House bill would keep ObamaCare’s tax hikes in place and also repeal the individual mandate, which forces Americans to buy health insurance.
The mandate was part of the original House bill but was dropped as part of a larger tax overhaul that Republicans hope to pass this year.
Democrats are pushing for the repeal of the individual mandates as part the bill.
Democrats say they want to make sure the GOP bill passes.
The Better Care Tax Act would give Americans $1,000 to spend on health insurance and would repeal the tax increases for individuals and families.
The $1 million amount would apply to all insurance companies and not just those that offer coverage through the individual insurance market, the GOP proposal says.
The tax cuts would be phased in over three years and then gradually phased out over 10 years.
The legislation also includes a tax credit of up to $2,000 for individuals who purchase health insurance from a small employer, up to up to a maximum of $5,000 from large employers, and $10,000 or more from large businesses.
The Republican proposal also includes $3,000 in tax credits for individuals buying coverage through a small-group insurance plan.
The plan would also include $2.5 billion in tax cuts for families, $300 million for states and $3 billion for cities.
The Senate bill would also cut federal tax rates for businesses by $1.4 trillion over 10 year period, to 15.4 percent from 20 percent, and the corporate rate to 20 percent from 35 percent.
Republicans say the GOP tax cuts will help small business and help individuals afford insurance.
They say they will pass the bill by the end of March and that Democrats would have to negotiate with Republicans to make it happen.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that the GOP plan would leave 28 million fewer people with health insurance by 2026 than under ObamaCare, a result that Republicans attribute to the tax cuts.
However, the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service estimated that the bill would add about $2 trillion to the deficit over a decade.
GOP lawmakers, who were unable to secure a bipartisan bill last year to address the healthcare crisis, are pushing to pass the Better Medicare Reconciliations Act, a $300 billion package to reform the Affordable Care Act.
