David Beckmann, a Lutheran minister who is president of Bread for the World, a Christian anti-hunger lobby. And it would end the tax penalty Obama's statute imposes on people who don't buy insurance - in effect, ending the so-called individual mandate. In the Senate, McConnell may well try to handle more adeptly-or he might not-and the future of the American healthcare system hangs in the balance why McConnell plays his most important game yet.
