An early working version of the document showed it sought to roll back taxes and penalties in the Affordable Care Act, cut back Medicaid expansion, modify federal health subsidies, and give states more flexibility to opt out of some insurance requirements. With a slim majority in the upper-chamber, the GOP needs to get nearly all of its 52 senators on board, because no Democrats or independents are expected to back the bill.

A vote is expected next week. Read the document here.
