With a vote scheduled for this Thursday in the U.S. House, it's down to the wire for the American Health Care Act, the Republican-authored bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

The bill would no longer require that Americans buy health insurance, and it would eliminate the current subsidies that are used to bring down the cost of premiums. NPR's full coverage explains how those subsidies would be replaced with a fixed refundable tax credit and there would be big changes to Medicaid.

House Minority Leader Scott Pelath, D-Michigan City, says he will also look for opportunities to work with the GOP.

The GOP picked up one seat in the state Senate and a few in the House, to retain their supermajority in both houses of government.
