Looks like the Republicans in Western Nebraska, Alaska and Wyoming will be paying top dollar for health-care as opposed to people in Los Angeles and Boston who will pay the price of a cup of coffee per day for health-care.

Los Angeles for example with so many young people on health exchanges in California and the risk so spread out will only pay $650 a year for a 40 year old making $50,000 a year.

In the Boston suburbs according to the map, 40 year olds would pay $390 a year for coverage.

In many of the counties in Western Nebraska they are expected to pay $6,150 under Republicans American Health Care Act.

I wonder if rural Nebraskans will enjoy paying paying 8 times as much as Maxine Waters Los Angeles and 15 times more then Elizabeths Warren's Massachusetts.

Many of these hospitals are also run-down old-dumps in rural America. People in Los Angeles have Cedar-Sanai and Bostonians have world-class hospitals a dime a dozen.

The population is also aging big time out there also so the premium for a 60 year old in Republican Western Nebraska would be $20,000, compared to about $6,400 in Los Angeles.

It is silly to try to compare a passed law with one that hasn't even been written yet.

The house has passed its "version"

The Senate is till working on theirs.

THEN the 2 will get tigether for a FINAL bill.

As anyone who has followed bills in Congress, each houses version, many time does not come close to to the final bill.

I'll wait until we ACTUALLY have bill before discussing "what ifs"

The average age of Alaska is 33.6, California is 35.4, Nebraska is 36.3, and Wyoming 36.8
The tax credits are worse in the progressive republican plan in some cases which is strange since they campaign on lower taxes. By campaign I mean they lied, as usual.
