"Generally, people who are older, lower-income, or live in high-premium areas (like Alaska and Arizona) receive larger tax credits under the ACA than they would under the American Health Care Act replacement", said the Kaiser Family Foundation.
Trump has dared lawmakers to vote against the health bill, and earlier this week used a tweet to target Paul for his outspoken opposition to the health care replacement effort-specifically that it would not eliminate government-mandated insurance.
Democrats - and independent analysts - say the savings accounts are not a workable option for the poor, and that the tax credits would be substantially less than the subsidies now provided under Obamacare.
