The House unveiled its Obamacare replacement today, and its a huge stinking mess. One thing is clear…republicans want to remain in the federal healthcare business. Is THIS what you expected when you put republicans back in power? Of course it isn’t.
Full repeal of Obamacare first. Its fine to delay the start of those repeal efforts till 2019 or so. But there is zero reason to tie repeal to replace. This is dishonest and unnecessary.
After you read this, we’d LOVE to get your thoughts on it. Wow.
House Republicans on Monday announced their long-awaited legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, but they can’t say how many people would get or lose coverage compared to the Affordable Care Act.
The bill puts income restrictions on insurance tax credits and drops a proposed cap on the tax break for employer-sponsored health coverage. The Congressional Budget Office has not released its estimate on how much the bill would cost. The legislation is expected to be marked up later this week.
