GOP lawmakers have released their revised health care bill.
The revised bill features additional resources for opioid treatment, lower-premium plans and tax revisions. The bill also increases health insurance subsidies and taxes plans for high earners.
The plan will add $70 billion to the $112 billion bill that was proposed last month. The money will help insurers stop the growth of premiums and other medical out-of-pocket costs.
Some weren't happy with the new bill.

Low premium policies w lousy coverage do nothing but mess up the finances for hospitals and patients. This is a disaster.— 🛋️ Mame McCutchin (@icterid) July 13, 2017
So after more than 7 years, the best they can do is The Affordable Care Act LITE: Now with shittier coverage and half the protections!— J A Morin (@MorinJA) July 13, 2017
Others think it's better than Obamacare.
Senate GOP leaders will unveil their new health care bill online on Thursday.
The bill has been a highly contested issue in Congress after a CBO report estimated that Republicans' last proposal would have resulted in more than 23 million people becoming uninsured by 2026.
The report sparked criticism and four conservative Republican senators -- Rand Paul (R-KY), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) -- came forward last month to oppose the bill.
"Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor," their statement said.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) are working to create a alternative plan to replace and repeal Obamacare, according to CNN. Their idea is to keep many of the federal taxes in place and send the money to the states in order for them to control how it is allocated.
In addition to the alternative plans, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who has been leading the charge to pass the bill agreed to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) demands of allowing insurers to sell low-cost plans.
McConnell faces pressure from President Trump to get the health care bill passed. President Donald Trump warned that he will be "very angry" if the bill is not passed during a interview on the Christian Broadcasting Network's "The 700 Club,"
