Burr and GOP propose health law alternative
North Carolina Senator Richard Burr is one of three U. S. Senate Republicans proposing an alternative to the Affordable Care Act.
The alternative eliminates most government-imposed coverage mandates and offers tax breaks to help those with lower incomes obtain coverage.
Sens. Orrin Hatch of Utah, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Burr said Monday in a written statement that their goal is to reduce health care costs and increase access to affordable, high quality care.
