National Review has published an editorial blasting the Senate's proposed healthcare bill to replace the Affordable Care Act.

"The Senate Republican healthcare bill would not repeal and replace Obamacare . . . Federal policy would continue to push people away from inexpensive catastrophic coverage," the conservative publication's editorial board wrote.

"The bill also seems unlikely to stabilize insurance markets, even though their current instability is one of the main Republican talking points for passing it. 

"The legislation gets rid of the 'individual mandate' — Obamacare's fines for not buying insurance — but keeps the regulations that made the mandate necessary. The result is likely to be that healthy people leave the market and sick people face much higher premiums."

It says if the bill is not amended, "it is likely to die, and it will be difficult to mourn the loss."
