Kevin Drum offers the TL;DR version of the GOP Senate healthcare bill

And check his post for a chart of what happens to premiums when you cost out the same plan under Obamacare and the Senate bill. For example, a person in the age range 55-64 whose earnings are less than 2x the poverty level will see a premium increase of 294%: 3 times as much as was paid under Obamacare. But, in fairness, the very wealthy strongly feel that they don’t have enough money yet, so asking those near the poverty line to contribute their share makes sense to Republicans.

Drum also has a good quick summary of the CBO report that is well worth reading.
