Winners, Losers by the Numbers: California and the GOP Health Plan

Sen. Elizabeth Warren D-Mass. speaks with reporters as Democrats criticize the Republican health care plan at the Capitol in Washington Tuesday March 14 2017

Bottom line: When most people in MI and nationally say they want to "repeal and replace" the ACA, they do not necessarily want to lose coverage or return to the pre-ACA world. If you are under the age of 30, you would receive a $2,000 credit. The credit phases out for individuals with incomes of $75,000 and for families filing joint returns with income of $150,000.

There are almost 129,000 uninsured people in the 11th District that Conaway represents, according to the most recent census data.

Four GOP governors are pushing the plan, saying they represent most of the 33 Republican state chief executives.

It looks to me like Trumpcare is part of a war on seniors which threatens the health care of tens of millions of people through $370 billion in cuts to Medicaid and severely weakening Medicare robbing the trust fund of $346 billion. That's the final dollar amount the feds end up matching. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Miami - say the original bill cuts off too many people and they won't vote for it.

The American people got Obamacare shoved down their throats because of the liberal myth that government knows best about everything.

The ACA also brought the national rate of African-Americans who have health insurance up to 88% - within 3% of the coverage rate for all Americans.

Will coverage for pre-existing conditions continue? A person who will suffer immensely if they are denied medical care.

Dianne Feinstein is the senior USA senator from California. This will affect the non-rich, as will a change by which tax credits will be based more on age and less on the current income sliding scale.


She pays $31.38 a month for her plan's premium. But such standardization would disappear under the new law, making it hard to shop.

Prior to Obamacare I had the unfortunate need to take a loved one to the emergency room of various local hospitals. Nor did they have a clue that when they said repeal and replace that they were actually talking about their own health care. For now the GOP plan continues the essential benefits, but that could change. The older, sicker and lower income would face higher costs and/or less coverage. The rising cost of premiums and co-pays far outpaced inflation.

Will anyone lose coverage?

Ironically, the ACA's Medicaid expansion has underserved African-Americans, who disproportionately live in states that chose not to expand Medicaid. He also said simply doing away with the ACA's individual mandate would be enough to make the law die out. It didn't always work well. That expanded Medicaid rolls to about 73 million people, about half of whom are children.

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said on CNN's "State of the Union" that evaluations of the party's plan focused only on the American Health Care Act, the legislation backed by Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan that is coming up for a House vote on Thursday. Not everyone agrees. Washington and Lee law professor emeritus Timothy Jost says younger and wealthier people in low-priced areas will be better off than they were under Obamacare. That law protected older people not eligible for Medicare.

The Republican plan says you do not have to buy insurance.

In the statement, the agencies said the new proposals threaten to undermine coverage for the disabled and abuse victims, rehabilitative funding for mental health and substance abuse issues and affordable coverage for those with disabilities or significant health problems.
