WASHINGTON (AP) - Three Senate Republicans are proposing to repeal the nation's controversial health care law in favor of an alternative that eliminates most of its government-imposed coverage mandates and offers tax breaks to help those with lower incomes obtain coverage.

Sens. Orrin Hatch of Utah, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Richard Burr of North Carolina said Monday in a written statement that their goal is to reduce health care costs and increase access to affordable, high quality care.

The plan is a rarity for congressional Republicans. They vowed more than three years to repeal and replace President Obama's health care law, which some refer to as"Obamacare," but since then have focused almost exclusively on trying to repeal it without advancing a comprehensive alternative.
