Republicans Misstate What’s in trumpcare Bill

“The American Health Care Act that narrowly passed out of the House this month cuts $880 billion from Medicaid — but that won’t affect anyone’s coverage.

“It keeps the GOP’s promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act — but doesn’t really repeal the ­Affordable Care Act.

“It passed after conservatives demanded that it allow states to end some mandated benefits — but states aren’t actually going to do that.

“Such pronouncements from Republicans in the days since they passed the AHCA and celebrated in the Rose Garden reflect a deep struggle to sell the bill at home. The bill falls short of the GOP’s long-standing promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. But most Americans now oppose the “full” repeal that so many Republicans have pledged to make happen year after year.”
