House Republicans Unveil Their Obamacare Replacement Plan

House Republicans have released a bill detailing their plan to unravel Obamacare

The bill also proposes limiting federal funding for Medicaid, which Heberlig said could result in people losing their insurance, and some votes against the bill, even from Republicans. Individuals who do not demonstrate continuous coverage will be slapped with a 30 percent penalty.

What little is known about the repeal and replacement of Obamacare is a plan that Republicans have touted for years, and it won't achieve what Obama's plan did, which is provide health care insurance for 20 million people who were without coverage. It will next be reviewed by two House committees.

The bill, named the American Healthcare Act, was introduced by the House Committees of Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce. That finally came about today as the House pushed out their new bill. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan says the American Health Care Act will help drive down costs, encourage competition, and expand access to care. This year, the federal government is sending IL an estimated $14.1 billion for its share of the program. Instead, each state would receive a limited amount based on its enrollment and costs.

Republicans said they don't have official estimates on those figures yet.
