That would set up a House-Senate conference to resolve the differences between the two proposals, buying Republicans more time to continue to try to find a broad bill that repeals and replaces the ACA.

"I'm optimistic right now, based on the atmosphere, the sense that I have from members", said Sen. A half dozen or more Senate Republicans are still undecided about whether to even start debate on a health care overhaul.
