House Republicans unveiled on Monday their long-awaited plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, scrapping the mandate for most Americans to have health insurance in favor of a new system of tax credits to induce people to buy insurance on the open market.
...
The House Republican bill would roll back the expansion of Medicaid that has provided coverage to more than 10 million people in 31 states, reducing federal payments for many new beneficiaries. It also would effectively scrap the unpopular requirement that people have insurance and eliminate tax penalties for those who go without. The requirement for larger employers to offer coverage to their full-time employees would also be eliminated.
...
People who let their insurance coverage lapse, however, would face a significant penalty. Insurers could increase their premiums by 30 percent, and in that sense, Republicans would replace a penalty for not having insurance with a new penalty for allowing insurance to lapse.

House Republican leaders said they would keep three popular provisions in the Affordable Care Act: the prohibition on denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, the ban on lifetime coverage caps and the rule allowing young people to remain on their parents’ health plans until age 26.

Republicans hope to undo other major parts of President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement, including income-based tax credits that help millions of Americans buy insurance, taxes on people with high incomes and the penalty for people who do not have health coverage.

Medicaid recipients’ open-ended entitlement to health care would be replaced by a per-person allotment to the states. And people with pre-existing medical conditions would face new uncertainties in a more deregulated insurance market.

7 years to come up with a plan an the best they have is one that basically takes coverage away from millions. Combined with the $600 billion tax cut on high income earners they have planned, poor coal miners from PA to west Virginia are about to see some serious improvement in their life.

"Well basically, I just copied the ObamaCare we have now. Then, I added some fins to lower wind resistance. And this racing stripe here I feel is pretty sharp."

So it's basically ObamaCare except it accomplishes less, benefits the rich more, and leaves more people without coverage. Brilliant, that's pretty much exactly what I expected from Trump and the GOP.

It's hard not to notice that Trump's fingerprints are far away from this, I would put money on him having absolutely nothing to do with it. I expect he found it all too difficult and just told Ryan to get something cobbled together that might score a pass mark. The result is a shit compromise that angers people who were opposed to ObamaCare because it's too similar to it and pisses off people who support ObamaCare by hobbling it. No-one wins. As per usual in the US health system.

What do you mean no one wins? If you're earning 4million dollars a year you get a 200k tax cut. Winning!!

The important thing here is that poor people are going to suffer and die.
That's two wins right there.

If you add in that their kids are going to have bad outcomes through absolutely no fault of their own that's another win.

Extrapolating soon America will have one morbidly obese and very rich white man waited on by 50 billion dirt poor Mexicans.

The White House is privately lining up behind conservative calls to roll back Obamacare's Medicaid expansion sooner than the health care reform bill currently calls for, two senior administration officials and a senior House conservative aide told CNN on Thursday.
...
White House officials are beginning to urge House GOP leadership to include an earlier sunset of the Medicaid expansion funds authorized under Obamacare than the 2020 date set by the current bill. The change comes just days after the bill was unveiled and follows a blitz of activism aimed squarely at the White House and President Donald Trump, who has met with conservative leaders in recent days.

Trump wants to take away 10 million people's health insurance ASAP so that they might forget by 2020 and won't vote D. Another move to help the small west Virginian coal miner
