  • Effectively eliminate Medicaid expansion and ration future Medicaid care
  • Give $600 billion in tax breaks to the wealthy

Republicans in Congress have effectively stripped the ACA’s protections for people with pre-existing conditions and its guarantee of affordable coverage. And they have now voted for a bill that will strip coverage from millions and drive up health care costs for millions more.
