This is significant. Rand saying if they cut block grants in half he may vote for it. That's not an insignificant change, however.


Quote:
The embattled Republican effort to repeal the nation’s health-care law now centers on winning over a hard-line conservative, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who continues to engage with President Trump and Senate leaders, giving proponents of the latest GOP bill a glimmer of hope.

While Paul remains wary of that proposal, he signaled Sunday that he is willing to consider a “narrow” version of the legislation, which would give states vast authority over money provided under the Affordable Care Act and waive many federal rules and regulations.

Paul said he broadly opposes a keystone of the Republican plan: issuing “block grants” to states to use federal funds being spent on Medicaid expansion and subsidies as they wish. But he is willing to hear out suggestions about how that aspect of the bill could be constricted.

Hopefully Murkowski doesn't cut a deal.

So now we dance on the repeal's grave because it's dead dead until it clearly isn't. I think I finally have the rythym of this dance down. The media is as annoying as Congress on this matter.

Oh, it'll be back in some other form. The only question is if they'll go harder-line (ie, [expletive] over even more people) to appeal to the Paul/Cruz contingent, or just try to throw enough pork at Collins/Murkowski until they can get them to cave.
