The Senate voted down a measure proposed by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., that would repeal major provisions of the Affordable Care Act, including the individual mandate, Medicaid expansion, and tax credits that help people buy health insurance, while giving lawmakers two years to come up with a replacement. The measure is the second GOP health care plan rejected by the Senate this week, and sources say Republican leaders might attempt to pass a "skinny" repeal that would only eliminate a few ACA provisions, including the individual and employer mandates and the medical device tax, if more comprehensive proposals are voted down.
