An analysis of the Republican plan to eliminate the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. ObamaCare, shows that the question with the GOP plan, which, after US President Donald Trump’s endorsement has caused some on the left to call it ‘TrumpCare,’ is not a matter of how many individuals will gain health coverage, but how many millions will lose it.

Axar.az reports S&P Global Ratings wrote in a new report, “we expect a decline in enrollment in the individual” market by 2-4 million, with a further decline among the Medicaid segment of 4-6 million.”

Margaret Flowers, M.D., co-director of Popular Resistance, said Paul Ryan’s claims that the new American Health Care Act lowers costs and provides healthcare to all Americans are simply not accurate, according to a recent episode of Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear hosted by Brian Becker.

Within Trump’s Republican party, conservatives in Washington have complained confidentially that the plan is a “God-awful bill.

Flowers agreed with Becker, that even under the Affordable Care Act, sky-high deductibles mean that consumers have to spend $1800, $2500, or $5000, depending on the plan, before one can begin to access insurance benefits. “We continue to see tens of millions of people who are underinsured and can’t use the insurance they have,” Flowers said.
