Republican Health Plan: Pay More for Less

Congress

It’s taken seven years to see the Republican plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and it’s no wonder they’ve kept it hidden from the American people for so long. Check out how much MORE American families will have to pay (for less coverage, of course) both today and in 2020, according to an analysis from Vox:

“The bill does not measure up well: For all but the youngest individuals, it increases both overall costs and the risk of a financially devastating event.”

“For families, the Republican bill would increase costs by $2,243 if the bill were in effect today. For families with a head of household age 55 to 64, the bill would increase costs by $7,604. For families with income below 250 percent of poverty, the bill would increase costs by $6,228.”

These cost increases would explode by 2020. We estimate that the Republican bill would increase costs for families by $4,274. For families with a head of household age 55 to 64, the bill would increase costs by $10,591. For families with income below 250% percent of poverty, the bill would increase costs by $9,024.”
