Here's the catch, the "choice" portion means that you get to pick your doctor. However, if you have employer health insurance rated at $18,000 worth of coverage per year, you would have to pay taxes on that plan as if the employer just gave you $18,000.
But fret not, you would get a "tax credit" of up to $5,700 to build your own healthcare plan. But don't expect that to meet your needs. Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) knows it won't be enough and he's the cheif backer of the "plan".
If a family doesn't have health care coverage, has no employer-based health care, they get a $5,700 refundable credit to go out and construct their health care. That probably won't meet the equivalent of an FEHBP ( Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan ) plan.
Who exactly does the GOP expect to buy into this nonsense? Even the people that can afford their own healthcare aren't going to accept a plan that makes you pay taxes on your coverage.
