WASHINGTON (AP) – Senate Republicans are adding billions of dollars to their teetering health care bill, hoping to win support from GOP senators who may be opposing the legislation. According to documents obtained by The Associated Press, a new version of the measure would add $14.5 billion for states. Part of that money is aimed at sparsely populated states. A table says Arizona would get 14 percent more money than under President Barack Obama’s law, Kentucky 4 percent more and Texas 49 percent more. Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Kentucky’s Rand Paul and Texas’ Ted Cruz have all expressed opposition to the bill. Democrats say the numbers are misleading.
