The Senate tax bill is really a health care bill with major implications for more than 100 million Americans who rely on the federal government for their health insurance. The bill reaches into every major American health care program: Medicaid, Medicare, and the Obamacare marketplaces.

4 winners and 4 losers from the Republican vote to replace Obamacare

Rich people do well. Sick people don’t. House Republicans have passed the American Health Care Act, a bill that would greatly reduce funding for Obamacare’s coverage programs, leaving millions fewer people with health insurance. The bill would dramatically remake the American health care system, changing who can afford coverage in the individual market — and who will be left uninsured.

Trump does have an Obamacare replacement plan – and it would cause 21 million to lose coverage

In broad terms, Trump's plan looks a lot like the dozen or so other Republican Obamacare repeal plans that have come out over the past few years. Trumpcare allows insurance companies to go back to refusing coverage for preexisting conditions, a key barrier to coverage before Obamacare's coverage expansion.

“The mandate penalties are not working”: an expert explains what is broken with Obamacare

There are a few challenges. Enrollment continues to fall short of expectations, which is contributing to instability. We’ve got all of the  sickest people, who are highest need, and they enrolled in 2014. Each year, the marketplaces have continued to not pick up enough healthy people to create a stable risk pool. That’s one big issue.
