    I agree with Senator Rand Paul  that it's bad news to
    #1 keeps Obamacare taxes for another year
    #2 keeps insurance company subsidies forever.

    I hate corporate welfare at the expense of the people!

    " 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, " http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2 … women.html

    It appears the GOP is saying Screw The Kids!

    Not all bad 'tho

    #1 Keeps the extremely popular provisions barring insurance companies from discriminating against people because of their preexisting conditions and forces them to continue allowing young adults to stay on their parents’ plans until they’re 26
    #2 Does away with the much-loathed individual mandate
    #3 Keeps Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion until 2020
    #4 Contains tax credits

    What do you think?  Are you OK with  what Standard & Poor’s found that as many as 10 million people could lose their coverage?

    Since the AHCA repeals very little of the ACA, - if it hurts you or you loved ones - don't bitch here - call or write you state Congress

    Concerned about this "tax credit" thing.  If it's like the EIC and one can get back more than they ever owed or paid, OK.  If not, the poorer people that don't owe taxes won't have insurance, either.  And that's assuming they can pay for it during the year - something few can.  Maybe medicaid limits will drop to compensate.
