Everybody Loves (Parts of) Obamacare


Ron Brownstein is surprised:

This is pretty much what I’d expect. After all, it’s people aged 50-64 who mostly have pre-existing conditions.

This remains the Achilles’ heel of the repeal movement. Once you’ve agreed to keep Obamacare’s pre-existing conditions policy, the rest of Obamacare—or something pretty similar—is inevitable. This is why the repeal-and-replace movement is having such a tough time.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
