AUSTIN – Today, the Texas Public Policy Foundation released a new side-by-side summary comparison of Obamacare repeal-and-replace legislation. The summary compares the similarities between Obamacare, the final U.S. House of Representatives Republican plan, the U.S. Senate leadership plan, and the revised U.S. Senate leadership plan.

          "It is helpful to view the various proposals and draft legislation side-by-side," said Chip Roy, director of the Center for Tenth Amendment Action at TPPF. "Doing so leaves one with an unfortunate but clear conclusion: Obamacare is neither repealed nor replaced in any version yet put forth. This is why the right thing to do is repeal Obamacare at a date certain in the future and then get busy fixing the tax code, developing state-based high-risk pools that can work, and reforming Medicaid by empowering states, starting with some of the good ideas in these draft so-called repeal proposals."
