What's at Stake with Trumpcare: Educational Resources from Social Media (and Other) Sources

From Center on Budget and Policy Priorities


Jonathan Chait, "7 Charts Explain the Horrors of Trumpcare": 
Obamacare is financed with a combination of higher taxes on the rich and cuts to Medicare and health-care providers. The latter was highly unpopular, and the central target of Republican anti-Obamacare messaging. Republicans promised to repeal both sources of financing for the law. But they couldn’t make the numbers add up if they eliminated all the financing sources in Obamacare, so they left the spending cuts in place, and instead focused on repealing the part that Republicans in Washington hate the most: taxes on the rich. So the bill is built on a tax cut of about a trillion dollars over a decade that benefits the rich almost exclusively.
