The GOP healthcare bill keeps some of the most popular parts of Obamacare, like letting young adults stay on their parents' health insurance until age 26 and requiring insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions. But the Republican bill gets rid of the key element that made Obamacare work: the individual mandate. Now that people aren't required to have insurance, healthy people could leave insurance pools en masse, leaving sick people who are more expensive to cover. Hypocrisy is a minor sin in politics, but still, it is remarkable how much of it there is to be found in this legislation. A core Republican complaint when Obamacare was passed was that the law delayed many of its provisions in order to reduce public outcry and manipulate the CBO’s score. The GOP bill is similarly aggressive with such tricks, delaying changes to the Medicaid expansion until 2020 and pushing Obamacare’s tax on expensive insurance plans out until 2025. Because Republicans aren’t even trying to win Democratic votes, they’re stuck designing a bill that can wiggle through the budget reconciliation process (another thing they complained about Democrats doing). That means they can’t make major changes to insurance markets like repealing Obamacare’s essential benefit standards or allowing insurance to be sold across state lines. That last part is particularly striking, given that it was one of President Trump’s five demands in his speech last week. I’ve always been skeptical about the savings Republicans could wrest by changing those regulations, but now they can’t get those savings at all — which means sacrificing a key part of their theory of cost control. This bill has a lot of problems, and more will come clear as experts study its language, the Congressional Budget Office release its estimates, and industry players make themselves heard. But the biggest problem this bill has is that it’s not clear why it exists. What does it make better? What is it even trying to achieve? Democrats wanted to cover more people and reduce long-term costs, and they had an argument for how their bill did both. As far as I can tell, Republicans have neither. At best, you can say this bill makes every obvious health care metric a bit worse, but at least it cuts taxes on rich people? Is that really a winning argument in American politics? In reality, what I think we’re seeing here is Republicans trying desperately to come up with something that would allow them to repeal and replace Obamacare. This is a compromise of a compromise of a compromise aimed at fulfilling that promise. But “repeal and replace” is a political slogan, not a policy goal. This is a lot of political pain to endure for a bill that won’t improve many peoples’ lives, but will badly hurt millions.

And ever since, nearly every President and Congress, whether Democrat or Republican, has attempted to meet this challenge in some way. A bill for comprehensive health reform was first introduced by John Dingell Senior in 1943. Sixty-five years later, his son continues to introduce that same bill at the beginning of each session." 7. Close up of Senator John Dingell 8. Wide of people applauding Dingell 9. Wide of Obama at podium 10. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "We are the only Democracy, the only advanced Democracy on earth, the only wealthy nation that allows such hardship for millions of its people. There are now more than 30 (m) million American citizens who cannot get coverage. In just a two year period one in every three Americans goes without healthcare coverage at some point and every day 14,000 Americans loose their coverage, in other words it can happen to anyone." 11. Cutaway of applause 12. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "But what we have also seen in these last months is the same partisan spectacle that only hardens the disdain many Americans have towards their own government. Instead of honest debate, we have seen scare tactics. Some have dug into unyielding ideological camps that offer no hope of compromise. Too many have used this as an opportunity to score short-term political points, even if it robs the country of our opportunity to solve a long-term challenge. And out of this blizzard of charges and counter-charges, confusion has reigned. Well the time for bickering is over. The time for games has passed. Now is the season for action." 13. Cutaway of chamber 14. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "And while there remains some significant details to be ironed out, I believe a broad consensus exists for the aspects of the plan I just outlined, consumer protections for those with insurance, an exchange that allows individuals and small businesses to purchase affordable coverage and a requirement that people who can afford insurance, get insurance and I have no doubt these reforms will greatly benefit Americans from all walks of life and as well as the economy as a whole." 15. Wide of Obama being applauded 16. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "I understand how difficult this healthcare debate has been, I know many in this country are deeply skeptical that government is looking out for them. I understand the politically safe move would be to kick the can further down the road, to defer reform one more year, or one more election, or one more term, but that is not what this moment calls for, that is not what we came here to do. We did not come to fear the future, we came here to shape it, I still believe we can act, even when its hard." 17. Wide of Obama at end of speech 18.
