GOP Obamacare Plan Would Cover Fewer People; Blowback Grows - Bloomberg
GOP Obamacare Plan Would Cover Fewer People; Blowback Grows - Bloomberg: "Access Versus Coverage At the core of the Republican argument in favor of their plan is that it will expand access to insurance for those who want it, rather than expanding total coverage by forcing people to. The requirements for repealing the ACA mean it’s not possible to keep the same number of people covered, said Representative Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican. “You can’t do that,” Franks said in an interview. For the Republican plan to work, it needs to make sure tax subsidies get people to buy insurance who wouldn’t otherwise, said Rebecca Owen, a health research actuary with the Society of Actuaries."
