This Is What’s In The Health Care Bill House Republicans Just Passed

The Republican-led House on Thursday narrowly passed legislation to repeal major parts of the Affordable Care Act and replace them with a new set of policies designed to significantly scale back the federal role in providing health coverage to Americans.

Here are the key provisions of the American Health Care Act:

·       Millions more uninsured

·       Medicaid cuts

·       Less help paying for health insurance

·       No more mandates

·       Weaker protections for pre-existing conditions

·       Skimpier insurance policies

·       Higher deductibles

·       Higher premiums for older people

·       Lower premiums for younger people

·       Money for states to strengthen their insurance markets

·       Tax cuts worth $592 billion

In comment forum after comment forum, Republican posters argue that this is a non-issue because people had a choice. A choice, that is, to have a pre-existing condition.
