The Senate has announced their health care plan – the BETTER CARE RECONCILIATION ACT (BCRA) – which is in line with the house bill, with key changes being made to appease more moderate Republicans. NPR had a nice summary comparing Obamacare, AHCA (House bill) and BCRA (Senate bill) shown in the graphic below.
In general the bill does cut the individual mandate that forced people to buy health insurance of face a penalty, but does benefit the healthy and well-off the most with the various tax cut rollbacks that were used to fund Obamacare. Lower income and those with serious pre-existing conditions face the largest loss of benefits under the Republican proposals.
What are your thoughts on the health care debate to date? Does it make you mad or do you want Obamacare repealed asap?
