Margot Sanger-Katz has offered good analysis in the NYT. Call your congressional representative this morning if you have thoughts about this. Those of us with preexisting conditions thank you!
UPDATE: The measure passed the House by four votes, so a squeaker. The bill may face more scrutiny and consideration when it goes to the Senate. One hopes, but these are not hopeful times.
Certainly, Obamacare has foundered in some states as insurance carriers leave the marketplace. And it is true that as premiums rise, the burden on taxpayers to provide subsidies for ACA recipients becomes heavier.
However, the GOP plan looks less like an attempt to fix Obamacare than a rush job to carry out a campaign promise. The measure was rammed through without sufficient debate or analysis. It is far less an example of good governing than a show of party strong-arming.
