Will millions lose health care under Trumpcare? Price sidesteps the question

Holy crap, listen to how Price ignores the very important second part of this question, will millions lose insurance? pic.twitter.com/ubjQdnBX8p

Full of tax cuts worth $600 billion, FOR YOU??? Nope, mostly for corporations and the rich

the law's biggest revenues came from assessments on the wealthy and corporations, and they will be the biggest beneficiaries from a repeal.

“This is a payoff to insurance companies to get them to buy into their program,” said Rep. Bill Pascrell, a Democrat from New Jersey and member of the Ways and Means Committee. “This is pretty obvious.”

Pascrell said the GOP proposal would hasten the insolvency of Medicare and reduce the availability of coverage for the poor and middle class. Pascrell said he would try at a hearing on the bill Wednesday to block a provision that would increase to $1 million the amount of an executive’s salary that an insurance company could deduct from its corporate taxes.

Medicaid is going to be phased out by 2020

American Medical Association says American Health Care Act is Critically Flawed

“The AMA supported health system reform legislation in 2010 because it was a significant improvement on the status quo at the time; and although it was imperfect, we continue to embrace its primary goal – making high-quality, affordable health coverage accessible to all Americans,” AMA President Andrew W. Gurman, M.D. said. “As drafted, the AHCA would result in millions of Americans losing coverage and benefits. By replacing income-based premium subsidies with age-based tax credits, the AHCA will also make coverage more expensive – if not out of reach – for poor and sick Americans. For these reasons, the AMA cannot support the AHCA as it is currently written.”

Comparison of Trumpcare with Obamacare 

Jennifer Rubin

The Kaiser Foundation has a user-friendly map and calculator which shows which states (most of them) and which counties specifically would pay more under the GOP American Health Care Act and which pay more under the Affordable Care Act. In almost every single county in Iowa, Michigan and Ohio, a 60-year-old with $30,000 in income would pay more for coverage. In some counties that would amount to more than $1,000. As Kaiser puts it, “Generally, people who are older, lower-income, or live in high-premium areas (like Alaska and Arizona) receive larger tax credits under the ACA than they would under the American Health Care Act replacement. Conversely, some people who are younger, higher-income, or live in low-premium areas (like Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Washington) may receive larger assistance under the replacement plan.” Congratulations, House Republicans and Trump, you’re on the side of rich New England millennials. Seriously, this would be a tragedy for the “forgotten” Americans and hence a political disaster for Trump.

Good explainer from Vox

The GOP’s Obamacare Replacement Is Just a Gigantic Tax on Women-Daily Beast

The GOP’s plan guts the Medicaid expansion, defunds Planned Parenthood, and sunsets a federal rule that requires that qualified insurance plans cover things like mental health care, maternity care, and pediatric dental and vision care, among other things. That means that states could individually choose not to require insurance plans to cover maternity care, and that women who are planning on having a child would need to purchase special insurance riders, which would likely be prohibitively expensive. Further, the fate of the ACA’s birth control mandate—which allowed women to obtain contraception at no out-of-pocket cost, ostensibly because making it extremely easy for a woman to not get pregnant is more cost effective than dealing with a woman who is pregnant and does not want to be—is also up in the air.

In short, if the House GOP plan were signed into law as-is, women could face financial repercussions for being poor, or for using birth control, or for not using birth control, or for giving birth, or for having children who need medical care. How many iPhones does an out-of-pocket Cesarean Section cost?
