TRUMP CARE NOT GREATER, CHEAPER AND DOES NOT COVER EVERYONE AS PROMISED ~ T. Rump – Trump By Trump – 3/2017
Trump conned us. He had no replacement for the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) – not the greatest, not one to cover everyone, not cheaper. It was a con. Since before the ACA, Republicans claimed they had a better plan. Apparently it was to claim Obama Care was a disaster and just repeal it. Finally Republicans have hastily put something together called The Everything for Health Insurance Companies, Pharmaceuticals and The Rich Act (or Trump Care).
Experts say millions of people will lose the coverage they now have. Trump had promised “We’re going to have insurance for everybody” — with coverage that would be “much less expensive and much better.”
The ACA would be repealed as promised.
The GOP plan would greatly reduce the ACA’s subsidies.
Insurers would be allowed to charge older people five times as much as younger people.
The current mandate that requires nearly everybody to obtain insurance or pay a penalty would be replaced with insurers being allowed to charge people who don’t maintain their insurance 30 percent more for coverage, forever. Under Trump Care, People would have a strong financial incentive to buy insurance only when they got sick.
The rich win. The workers lose. Businesses and individuals making more than $200,000 a year who now help fund Obamacare would get tax cuts totaling about $600 billion over 10 years. Leave it to Republicans to benefit the rich.
Some think giving the rich tax cuts benefits workers with jobs, higher pay and benefits, but we have not seen any such benefits.
