Obamacare Repeal Is on Life Support. These 5 Senators Could Decide Its Fate
Once again, Congress is facing a looming vote on repealing the Affordable Care Act that will be decided by a handful of key Republicans.

With several Republicans expressing concern and even opposition to the bill, its future looks uncertain. On Monday, Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana put forward a revised version in an attempt to sway some ho...
