A Washington Post analysis of House Republicans’ newly unveiled plans  to rewrite the Affordable Care Act  would give more financial help to richer people and cut federal assistance to moderate- and low-income people.The new legislation would  let individuals earning up to $75,000 a year and married couples earning as much as $150,000  get a refundable tax credit; some Americans earning more than that also would get help,  albeit in lessening amounts.

The Post observed”

“These changes, aimed at curbing the federal spending on health care, reflect Republicans’ fundamentally different vision of government’s role. Rather than expand a social safety net for poorer Americans, at the risk of imposing financial burdens on future generations, they hope to set in motion free-market approaches that would change the way many Americans access health care.”
