WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The latest version of Senate Republicans' legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act would leave 22 million Americans without health insurance coverage by 2026, the U.S. Congressional Budget office said on Thursday.

Republicans conceded their other options may be exhausted.
