    NYT: The outline of the plan points to a simpler system that would give every American a flat tax credit varying by age, but not by income.

    Republicans are reverse Robon Hoods.

    Beggars belief people support them who aren't the 1%.

    I'm going to just go out on a limb and guess that, like much of the trash "Fake News" that the NYT has been putting out of late, that this too is a story lacking in real facts or the truth. I'll wait and see what the Republicans unveil regarding anything considered to replace ObamaCare until it is fine-tuned and ready to be seen and debated on by the American people. All I know is that ObamaCare needs some serious help -- and soon -- and I sincerely hope that our Senate and Congress come up with a viable alternative that is good for ALL Americans. I know that for myself I pay a $700 per month premium with a $6,500 deductible because here in Arizona a single male who is considered an independent contractor (as a Realtor) has no option for insurance other than CIGNA. If I want health insurance, I have only CIGNA to choose from. We need to be able to cross state lines so marketplace competition between insurance companies can bring down premium costs, and someone like myself who is relatively healthy with no pre-existing conditions can buy only the insurance I need, not the insurance I'm forced to buy.
