And here is the repackaged Graham-Cassidy proposal from the Heritage Foundation and Rick Santorum.
TLDR: Don’t get sick
A coalition of conservative groups releases an outline of their Obamacare repeal plan. Presser comes tomorrow.
It tracks with Graham-Cassidy as a grant program. Ends essential health benefits, age ratio and minimum loss ratio. pic.twitter.com/zOqLB3amTd

The full plan has not been released yet, but the way that the program is set up is that insurance companies are allowed to underwrite and age rate at whatever level they want. Additionally, eligible individuals can take a per capita allotment to spend as they see fit on health insurance. This is great for the young and statistically likely to be healthy. If you are a 38 year old with Stage 4 cancer (like a friend of mine) taking a $100,000 a year oral chemo that so far is working, good luck as no insurer will cover you and the $241 a month in per-capita allotment is not even enough to be insulting.
So you know what to do: back to the phones and give your Senators and Representatives a piece of your mind.
