The Republican Health Plan is a Huge Betrayal of Trumps Campaign Promises
And Trumps voters will pay the highest price.

Donald Trumps embrace of the American Health Care Act, authored by Paul Ryan and other House Republicans seemingly in collaboration with establishment-minded members of his administration, represents a massive betrayal of his own clear and repeated promises to the American people.

.

To an extent, sophisticated political journalists always knew Trump was likely to break those promises. And his embrace of conventional, conservative House Republicans such as Mick Mulvaney to run the Office of Management and Budget and Tom Price to run the Department of Health and Human Services was a clear indication that he intended to break them. But it would be a mistake to simply gloss over this breach of faith.

.

Trumps embrace of more centrist positions on health care and retirement security was a crucial aspect of his campaign, and there was enough campaign-season tension between Trump and the GOP leadership that a voter could be forgiven for assuming Trump meant what he was saying.

.

He did not. Trump ran and won promising to cover everyone, avoid Medicaid cuts, and boost funding for opioid abuse treatment. He is now lobbying Congress to pass a bill that does none of those things. Instead, millions will lose insurance and Medicaid spending will be sacrificed on the altar of tax cuts for the rich.

.

Its not a surprising result, but in many ways it is a shocking one.

.

Trump made big, clear promises on health care
Donald Trump did not run a wonkish campaign heavily focused on detailed white papers or background briefings with experts. He did, however, make some pretty clear promises on health care policy.

.

Im not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican and Im not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid, Trump told the conservative Daily Signal way back in May 2015. Every other Republican is going to cut, and even if they wouldnt, they dont know what to do because they dont know where the money is. I do.

.

This was, strikingly, not a general election pivot to the center, but a commitment Trump made as a candidate in the GOP primary.

.

That fall, his promises got even bigger. “I am going to take care of everybody,” he told 60 Minutes. “I dont care if it costs me votes or not. Everybodys going to be taken care of much better than theyre taken care of now.”

.

Even after the election, Trump continued to insist that his plan was to offer patients a more generous deal than they were getting from the Affordable Care Act.

.

In an early January interview with the Washington Post, he said that Trumpcare would feature insurance for everybody, in contrast to an ACA that, while bringing the uninsurance rate to a historic low, has still left 25 million people without coverage. The plans, he said, would have much lower deductibles. And ability to pay, he said, wouldnt be an issue. There was a philosophy in some circles that if you cant pay for it, you dont get it. Thats not going to happen with us.

.

AHCA doesnt do any of that

.

The centerpiece of the Trump-endorsed American Health Care Act, by contrast, is a $600 billion tax cut. Families with incomes below $208,500 per year will see their taxes fall by an average of $0 per year, receiving none of that money. But members of the top 0.1 percent of the income distribution  households with an annual income of more than $3.75 million will see their taxes fall by an average of $165,090 per year.

.

If you are a multimillionaire and someone in your family gets sick, in other words, AHCA is going to be great for you.

.

But when you take $600 billion out of the American health care system and funnel it to a small elite group of people, the inevitable result is that everyone else has to get by with less.
