As Planned

Getting screwed by the rich is a pre-existing condition for the poor.

An analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation published Wednesday of a GOP proposal to rework the Affordable Care Acts subsidies into tax credits available to everyone illustrates how the plan, which was leaked last week, would represent a major loss for lower-income people and older Americans. Those higher on the income scale stand to gain under such a plan.

That’s why the Republicans hated Obamacare; it treated poor people equally.  (Well, yeah, there was that other reason, too.)
