An opponent of the Affordable Care Act, the Obama-era signature health bill, Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., calls the current replace and repeal House bill a mere first legislative step to that end. Toomey, who has been tapped to be part of a 13-member Senate committee tasked with authoring the chamber's own version of a healthcare bill, has vowed to ensure every Pennsylvanian has access to quality and affordable health care. Toomey is widely considered a moderate on the all-male committee, which include Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, Health and Education Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander and conservatives Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. Along with other Senate Republicans, members of the committee have concerns about the House bill's provisions on Medicaid and pre-existing conditions.
