The Republican health care bill under consideration in the House of Representatives would change health coverage for a lot of people.


It would no longer require that Americans buy health insurance, for instance, and it would eliminate current subsidies, replacing them with a fixed refundable tax credit.

To help Americans understand where Congress stands on the debate over this legislation, NPR, NPR Illinois and other member stations around the country have compiled a database of Congressional members’ positions on the bill.

Reporters will continue to update the database with statements from Congressional members.

U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (Republican, IL 13th District) issued a press release regarding the new proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act. 

"Some members, from both parties, may not want to face the mess that Obamacare has created and what is required to clean it up, but we made a promise to the American people to responsibly fix our health care system and that’s what this bill does."
