House Republicans Unveil Health-Insurance Proposal
The Wall Street Journal

House Republicans Wednesday laid out their vision for repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, positioning themselves across several political fault lines in the process.

In a 37-page proposal from House Speaker Paul Ryan and GOP committee chairmen, Republicans said they would strike the law in its entirety, but then reinstate a handful of its requirements, such as a ban on insurance companies dropping consumers just because they get sick. The Republican plan would include new tax credits and coverage guarantees for people who don’t get insurance through a job, and cap the tax benefit for health coverage offered by employers.
