Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Dean Heller, and Ron Johnson (R-WI), as well as former Senator Rick Santorum, announced a press conference on Wednesday to reveal their legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare through block grants.

Graham told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview that they will reveal the legislation for the Obamacare repeal block grant program on Wednesday.

Santorum has described this bill as a solution to health care that governors and lawmakers will present as “a solution outside of Washington.” Santorum believes that the bill will pass through the House and the Senate. Graham has told Breitbart News that President Donald Trump will sign the legislation if it reaches his desk. Currently, the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill serves as the only realistic opportunity to repeal Obamacare.

Sen. Graham and House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) both charged that at least 12 governors support the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill. Meadows told reporters that the bill has “real merit.”

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Utah Governor Gary Herbert both have endorsed the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal plan in exclusive interviews with Breitbart News. Herbert declared that the bill was a “vast improvement over the Affordable Care Act.”

Graham told Breitbart News that this bill “will be the end of single-payer health care because the money and the policy making will be out of Washington.” He added, “This is may be the most important thing that I’ll ever do. If we can take money and power out Washington when it comes to health care, then we can achieve a great feat. Health care that is closest to the patient is the best health care.

The Graham-Cassidy bill will repeal Obamacare’s individual and employer mandate, many of Obamacare’s taxes, and deliver health care to the states so that local governments can design a more affordable alternative to the Affordable Care Act.
