These are junk insurance plans designed more to collect premiums, but provide little to no reasonable coverage. It's just another attempt by the Trump administration at subverting the ACA. The bottom line is that Republicans can't come up with a reasonable alternative to the ACA and fail every time at repeal of it. Just fix the current plan and things would be a lot better.

This is just what we had before. These were the plans people had on the cheap that prohibited "keeping your plan, and your doctor." These plans did not meet the minimum requirements of the ACA. As RB said, they are "junk" plans. Many covered only hospitalization with high deductibles, restrictive qualifications for procedures to be covered, did not allow pre-existing conditions, and contained low lifetime maximums. Pure junk. That's what IQ45 wants us to regress to, simply to snub the black president. Boy, these repubs sure look out for our health and safety. Not.

Anything less than the ACA is not a health plan. It's a plan for either bankruptcy or earlier death in the future. Besides Trump said many times his plan would have better coverage and a lower premium. Has he lied again to the American people?

President Trump has an inferiority complex when it comes to President Obama.
