7 Reasons Why Obamacare 2.0 Is All But Guaranteed to Impose Crushing Costs on Voters, Hurt Trump’s Base, And Hand Power Back to the Democrats

by KATIE MCHUGH

If passed in its current form, the GOP’s Obamacare 2.0 bill will impose brutal costs Americans still struggling to make it through a great recession—particularly President Donald Trump’s base—and risk handing Congress and the presidency back to Democrats.

1) The bill’s provisions increase healthcare costs for Trump voters in critical states. As an analysis conducted by the Washington Post shows, voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin will see their tax credits decrease under Obamacare 2.0. “If you’re a 40-year-old making $75,000 a year, you’re going to get a 75 percent or higher increase to your tax credits—a beneficial situation for you,” the Post explains. “If, however, you’re a 60-year-old making $30,000 a year, you’re going to see a reduction in those tax credits (unless you live in Upstate New York or Massachusetts or parts of central Texas).”

In other words, senior citizens—who vote regularly in mid-term elections—will see their healthcare costs increase under the Republicans’ bill.

Plus, Obamacare 2.0 phases out credits for people who start earning more than $75,000. Why? Because screw the voters and they’re on their own? What a great message to send to the middle class! Not only are Republicans hurting people struggling to make ends meet, they also punish you if you make too much money. Everyone loses, except perhaps insurance companies.

    Does it matter to Trump’s voter base? Are these figures and predictions correct? I don’t know. I believe the majority of his constituents want Omama care dismantled. Does it matter what the Dems think? They never cared what we wanted, and, they will oppose EVERYTHING that’s proposed. They’ve openly declared that. What the GOP is guilty of, is sitting on their arses for the last 8 years, not giving any thought to how they were going to get rid of what their voters wanted to abolish.

    Hah! Obamacare 2.0? I don’t think so. This is 100% Trumpcare, put forth by his Republican Party with no input from the Democrats.

    Suck it up, snowflakes. This is now your bill.

    1) Considering the lack of cohesion in the republican party, I wonder if we need republicans as much as we need a “populist” Congress. The democrats were in lock step creating 0-care yet the republicans find this a sniping event with republicans of the administrative state on republicans from the Tea Party.

    2) Remember, even 0-care wasn’t done over night. There were steps taken. Is it out of the realm of reality that to unwon 0-care that we might have to do it in increments?

      Not unwon but unwind.
