Republicans ACA Replacement Proposals Fall Short of Providing the Protections and Care People Currently Enjoy Under the Affordable Care Act
Despite public disapproval, congressional Republicans are rushing down a dangerous path that could take health coverage away from 30 million people and raise premiums for millions more. To date, they have failed to offer a credible replacement plan that provides the same level of care, coverage, and consumer protections as the ACA. In the coming weeks, numerous proposals are likely to be touted as parts of a so-called “replacement” plan. But these proposals either have significant faults or have proven unworkable when implemented in the past.
