    Republican members of the US Congress released on Thursday their draft healthcare bill to repeal and replace the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act.

    Bernie Sanders, the Democratic senator who ran for the White House in 2016, says 23 million would lose health insurance under Trump’s healthcare bill.
