The much-anticipated GOP health care bill is finally here.

Republican Senate leaders released their version of a healthcare bill that will roll back much of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

The bill cuts back on funding for lower-income and middle-class Americans. The bill also aims to stabilise the recently volatile health care industry in the short term.

The bill still has to pass a vote in the Senate and a reconciliation process with the House of Representatives before President Trump would be able to sign it into law. Republican Senate leaders are hoping to hold a vote on the bill before a week-long July 4 recess.
