Lindsey Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana are trying to bring the effort back before it's too late. And Sens.

The bill would also, for the first time in history, place a federal spending cap on Medicaid. 12 other senators have signed onto Sanders' bill.

If you want a single payer health care system, this is your worst nightmare. Yuval Levin, editor of National Affairs and a leading health-care expert, said that the bill looked like the "most coherent" GOP health-care plan considered this year.
