The latest version of Trumpcare will allow employers to gut insurance coverage for their employees. The Wall Street Journal claims that the bill will negatively affect 50% of all those who currently have insurance.

And that's the Wall Street Journal.

They focused primarily on the capping of lifetime benefits, which will affect people who have a catastrophic health event.  That means the bill affects everyone and increases the chances of going bankrupt for illness.

Joseph Kennedy, carrying on the family tradition, pointed out the bill also guts coverage for mental illness, which I thought was a great benefit of Obamacare. The inclusion of mental illness back when the ACA was passed was a milestone because this country had avoided mental illness for decades.
