Trumpcare: The Worst For The Worst Off

Side note: I love how ingenious the GOP is with calling Trumpcare ACHA rather than ACA, in one case the A is for "american" and in the other it stands for "affordable" which pretty much states the difference right there because in tRump-merica non-white, non-rich, non-GOP are not "americans". They're filth that needs to die.

Young Americans would probably see their premiums drop under the Republican plan. [..] Those earning higher salaries stand to benefit the most from the Republican bill, which lifts two taxes levied on the wealthy under Obamacare.[..] the new plan removes those geographic cost offsets, which could mean city-dwellers benefit from better access to physicians and state public-health infrastructure.(BBC)

So if you're young, white and wealthy then bully for you, you score! But... what about everyone else?

Older adults, specifically Americans in their 50s and 60s, are likely to pay more under the new system, even though they would receive larger tax credits. That's because the Republican proposal allows older adults to be charged as much as five times more than younger policy holders.[..] The new plan would roll back much of the provisions put in place to protect low-wage earners under Obamacare. [..] Another group that would lose under AHCA is people living in rural areas, where the cost of coverage tends to be higher due to fewer hospitals and insurers. (BBC)

So let's see how the money-minded GOP figured this out - take the group that probably needs the LEAST amount of health care and give them the most benefits. Then take the people who need more and are already pay more and give them less. Yep, that about covers it.

Mmmm I can't wait to see how the heartland reacts to their higher (or eliminated) health care. Yeah! You wanted smaller government? Well you're going to get it. Enjoy!
