The Republicans’ Jekyll-and-Hyde Health Care Plan

Drew Altman examines the Senate plan in The New York Times op-ed, “The Republicans’ Jekyll-and-Hyde Health Care Plan.” His analysis: a “Jekyll-and-Hyde” bill, meaner on Medicaid and more generous on tax credits, with good for young adults and the wealthy and bad for the old and the poor. Politically: a short-term win with the base if it passes, but potential long-term problems for Republicans in 2018 and 2020.
