Share Blue - The American Health Care Act strips tax credits from 7 million veterans that were put in place by the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
Paralyzed Veterans of America warned Republicans about the provision, but Republicans ignored the warning, passed the bill, and then went to celebrate with Donald Trump in the Rose Garden of the White House.
Military Times reports that the veterans group came out against the Republican bill, “in part because of concerns that it could leave millions of veterans ineligible for the tax credits.”
Republicans brushed off the concerns, and claimed that existing IRS rules cover the tax credits. But the IRS rules apply to Obamacare, and are not necessarily applicable to whatever the Republican bill would end up putting in place.
