TRUMPCARE


It replaces Obamacare subsidies with age-based, refundable premium tax credits to help people buy insurance. The credits would phase down starting at income levels of $75,000 for individuals and $150,000 for families. These credits would be adjusted annually by the consumer inflation rate plus 1 percent—Obamacare subsides change with premium costs. The way it's structured is geared toward younger, wealthier people—they get the most assistance. Older people, particularly, are disadvantaged because insurers will be able to charge them as much as 5 times more.

This is what the Koch Brothers wanted only they are angry because of the Tax breaks. Bottom line,this is going to throw the Nation into a deep recession the day it is passed.

6. Trump doesn't care. Call it the Drop Dead Act

because that's basically what it is. Over 55 and making the office look shabby with that grey hair and sagging face? Off to unemployment and being neglected to death within a couple of years for you!
