Republican healthcare bill

AKA the American Health Care Act (AHCA). See this article for the details. Just the bullet points follow:

Some of Obamacare’s signature features are gone immediately, such as the tax on people who don’t purchase health care.

The plan maintains the Medicaid expansion — for now. AHCA would end Medicaid expansion in 2020

The replacement plan benefits people who are healthy and high-income, and disadvantages those who are sicker and lower-income.  

The AHCA would let insurers charge older enrollees more.

The AHCA bans discrimination against those with preexisting conditions — but charges more to people who have a break in coverage 

The AHCA provides tax credits for the individual market that would benefit high-income Americans

AHCA kills a new tax on employer-sponsored coverage — but keeps Obamacare taxes around for a year
