The CA Law That Never Was? (SB 10)

Looks like California SB 10 will die on the vine. The bill was passed and signed into law by the Governor last summer. SB 10 would allow undocumented immigrants to enroll their children in Medi-Cal (California Medicaid) and was further expanded to allow adults to enroll (without subsidy) in Covered CA health plans.  

Although SB 10 was signed into law, it requires a waiver from DC (HHS) in order to be implemented. I recently spoke with Governor Brown's office and was told that no waiver has yet been granted. Given the change in Presidential administration and the stated goal of replacing ObamaCare, I highly doubt that a waiver will be forthcoming from the new director of HHS.

Mo Brooks Introduces One Line Bill to Repeal Obamacare

Mo Brooks (R-AL) has entered a one sentence bill for repeal of the ACA (ObamaCare). Seen as more of a symbolic gesture (the bill did not go to vote in the House), he gets right to the point in a succinct fashion...

“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”

Kaiser Foundation Interactive Subsidy Map (TrumpCare vs. ObamaCare)

An interactive subsidy map provided by Kaiser Foundation allows you to see the impact of tax credit subsidy (2020) versus income-based subsidy (current).  Sorted by county in all 50 states.  Those above 400% federal poverty level would do much better, those below, depends on county and income.  Most below 200% would do much worse.  

Subsidies under ACA are based primarily on income.  Tax Credits would be based primarily on age.
