None and Done?! House GOP Withdraws AHCA (TrumpCare) Bill

On Thursday, Republican House Leaders delayed a floor vote on the AHCA (American Health Care Act) also referred to as TrumpCare.

President Trump instructed House GOP to vote Friday (today) and if the bill did not pass, he would be done with reforming health care at this time and move on to tax and budget.

This afternoon, House GOP leaders were unable to secure sufficient votes for the bill and chose to withdraw it prior to vote.  

Republican leaders pulled the ObamaCare replacement bill Friday as they failed to pick up enough votes to get the bill passed.

 Appearances indicate that President Trump and the House GOP will let ObamaCare either sink or swim on its own for the foreseeable future.  They are of the belief that it will implode on its own.

“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”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