Republicans intent on scrapping Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act have a budget problem. As it turns out, repealing and replacing the law they hate so much won’t save nearly as much money as getting rid of it entirely, the goal they’ve been campaigning on for seven years. That means trouble for the federal deficit and for Congress’ fiscal conservatives who repeatedly warn about leaving their children and grandchildren worse off financially. (AP/J. Scott Applewhite)

The GOP’s American Health Care Act, a bill that has been advertised as a replacement for the Affordable Care Act, has finally been published -- and by the looks of it, their so-called health care overhaul will leave countless Americans, especially those with low incomes, at great risk.
