  Senate Republican leaders have added new language to their health care bill to allow the sale of cheap, bare-bones insurance plans in an attempt to draw enough conservative support to pass the measure to replace Obamacare. At the same time, the bill will give moderates more of what they want by increasing funding to fight opioid addiction from $2 billion in the original bill to $45 billion in the latest draft. It's not immediately clear whether the changes will attract enough votes to pass the legislation. Republican leaders are aiming for a vote on the Better Care Reconciliation Act next week.
