On Sunday, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price made a remarkable statement about the Trumpcare bill now under consideration in the Senate: he said it would increase the number of people covered by health insurance. Here was Price’s explanation:
One of the interesting things that is in this bill that wasn’t in previous iterations is the opportunity to make sure that those folks that actually fell into a gap below 100 percent of the poverty level, but above where a state might allow individuals on the Medicaid system. This bill provides for coverage for those individuals through the tax credit process, and that’s something that’s new. That’s also one of the reasons we believe we’re going to cover more individuals than are currently covered. The goal is to get every single American covered and have access to the kind of coverage they want.
