Historical BackgroundReturn to Top
On July 12, 2017 protestors gathered at a busy intersection in front of the University of Washington Medical Center to "defend the principle that healthcare is a human right". The goal of their demonstration was to show their rejection of the American Health Care Act (also known as Trumpcare or AHCA). The American Health Care Act of 2017 (H.R. 1628) is a United States Congressional bill to partially repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare. Rejected Senate amendments would have renamed H.R. 1628 the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017, Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act of 2017, or Health Care Freedom Act of 2017. It would repeal the parts of the Affordable Care Act within the scope of the federal budget.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projects that the AHCA would increase the number of uninsured people by 23 million over 10 years, but would decrease the federal budget deficit by $119 billion over the same period (about 1%), mainly by cutting Medicaid coverage for lower income Americans. Both the House AHCA bill and Senate BCRA bill would cut taxes largely for wealthy Americans. If enacted, insurance premiums are projected to decrease for younger, healthier, and wealthier people, while older and poorer people would likely see their premiums increase.
