The GOP plan to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will not make America great again. NCLR has denounced the legislation, dubbed the “American Health Care Act”, which was finally unveiled this week.
The Republican plan would take health coverage away from millions of American families and children, including millions of Latinos, by reducing tax credits to buy affordable plans and by stopping the Medicaid expansion. Further, we are quite alarmed at the plan’s provision to eliminate federal funding for Medicaid coverage for 74 million low-income Americans. This would be a first for the program since it was established in 1965, and would end Medicaid as we know it.
