The Deplorable Care Act

We now have an outline of the GOP's replacement plan for the ACA. The key points:

1. It's severely underfunded.
2. It dramatically slashes subsidies, which means that millions of people's healthcare expenses would skyrocket.
3. It contains only minimal protections for people with pre-existing conditions. (So people with cancer might be covered, but people like me wouldn't, and I would likely see my healthcare costs double or triple barring action by the State of California.)
4. The tax on not having insurance is replaced by a tax on having insurance.
5. 15 million poor people lose their Medicaid.
6. Tax cuts for the rich.
7. Additional tax credits for the rich.
