Mitt Romney wants to revive ACA replacement talks

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, has a new healthcare plan ready, according to Bloomberg reporter Steven Dennis.

Mr. Romney confirmed to The Hill he has a plan to replace the ACA but did not provide additional information. He said plans to release it depend on how it is received by his colleagues. 

Mr. Romney is a former presidential candidate and architect of "Romneycare," the Massachusetts healthcare bill seen as an ACA precursor, meaning his plan could hold some weight.

However, The Hill asked several Republican senators' offices on June 12 about Mr. Romney's ACA replacement plan, and none were aware of it yet. Mr. Romney may also face roadblocks from Republican leadership, according to The Hill. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., declined President Donald Trump's request to pick up the healthcare issue in April.
