Republicans finalize new Obamacare repeal proposal

The White House, top House conservatives and a key moderate Republican have finalized an Obamacare repeal-and-replacement agreement they hope will break a month-long GOP logjam over the issue.

GOP leadership has been circulating the text to the House Freedom Caucus, a hard-line conservative group that helped block the original bill, as well as more centrist Republicans. It is unclear if the deal will provide Speaker Paul Ryan the 216 votes needed for the House to pass the legislation.

The proposal calls for allowing states to opt out of key Obamacare regulations under certain conditions.
