Insurance for “all”

The AHCA not only means tens of millions lose insurance, but also worsens the wealth gap.

Republicans are “implementing the biggest transfer for wealth in our history, $600 billion gone from working families to the richest people and corporations in our country.” The bill improves the deficit picture only because it takes away more from the less well-off than it gives to the rich. The CBO explains that it will narrow the deficit “by $337 billion over the 2017-2026 period. … That change would result from a $1.2 trillion decrease in direct spending, partially offset by an $883 billion in revenues.” The CBO confirmed that the bill saves money by cutting Medicaid and subsidies to other programs and loses money because of the tax cuts for primarily rich taxpayers.
