Senate Republicans on Thursday unveiled a new version of their Trumpcare plan that one critic mockingly described as “new and improved total garbage.” The newly released plan leaves massive and widely condemned Medicaid cuts intact while adding a new amendment—put forth by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas)—that would allow insurers to offer cheap “bare-bones” plans which would wipe out a range of protections for all patients and specifically harm those with preexisting conditions.

Here’s a sample of what’s being said about the Republican’s revised Trumpcare plan:
