In this follow up episode to last week, we dig in to how the American Healthcare Act, aka Trumpcare, will affect Medicaid, and who will benefit from all the tax breaks.
We recorded this episode before the Congressional Budget Office came out with their evaluation of the plan. We weren't too far off, if anything we may have been generous with Trumpcare. We've linked the CBO report in the resources below in case you want to check it out for yourself.
Also, I mistakenly credited the Vox article to Ezra Klein, but it was Sarah Kliff who wrote the excellent summary of the AHCA. It's also linked below.
