Plan will keep provisions for those with pre-existing conditions and for young people staying on parents' plan until 26
Free Beacon by Ali Meyer --
House Republicans introduced legislation to replace the Affordable Care Act on Monday night called the American Health Care Act, which attempts to deliver relief to the American people from Obamacare's taxes and regulatory mandates.
Republicans have introduced multiple proposals to replace Obamacare leading up to this point and now the American Health Care Act serves as the replacement that lawmakers, along with President Trump, have chosen to go before the Energy and Commerce and Ways and Means committees this week for mark-up.
The act will keep some of Obamacare's popular provisions, including protecting individuals with pre-existing conditions from the denial of coverage or increased costs and allowing young people to stay on their parents' plan until they are 26.
However, the act will eliminate Obamacare's taxes and the individual and employer mandates, which Republicans say have hurt job creators, increased costs, and limited choices for patients and health-care providers.
