The GOP’s Current Obamacare Bill, Coherently Explained

Pretty much all conservatives have been frustrated by the House’s inability to pass Obamacare repeal and replacement. Something that seemed simple on the campaign trail has turned out not to be simple in practice. House Republicans now have produced a second version of the bill, which has been improved so as to draw support from the Freedom Caucus.

But what exactly is going on? What would the new House bill do? Can the Senate improve it, and if so, how? And, should conservatives support the current House proposal?

By far the most coherent discussion of these questions that I have seen comes from American Experiment’s Peter Nelson, one of America’s top health care experts. Peter has drafted a simple, clear, three-page explication of what the current bill contains, why conservatives should support it, and how it should be improved by the Senate. For clarity and information value, I haven’t seen anything like it.

Peter’s memo is being distributed by national organizations to every member of Congress and their staffs. It is expected to have a great deal of influence as the debate over Obamacare repeal proceeds. Here it is, hot off the press:
