GOP health plan would move money to rich from the poor

The outline of the Republican congressional proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act shows that it would redirect money from the poor to the rich, writes  healthcare journalist Margot Sanger-Katz in The New York Times.

She concludes:

“I wrote a few weeks ago about how all health policy decisions involve trade-offs, and it will be hard for President Trump to honor his promise of coverage that is ‘far less expensive and far better‘ than Obamacare. This {Republican} plan is a good illustration of those challenges. It’s a simpler, potentially cheaper plan than Obamacare. But it’s far less generous to the poor, and unlikely to provide the health insurance for ‘everybody‘ that President Trump envisions.”
