Replacement is smoke and mirrors

To the editor:

U.S. Rep. Jason Lewis said he would get rid of Obamacare. Well, so far, no good. The latest proposal to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act has yielded nothing but smoke and mirrors. Lewis supports Speaker Paul Ryan’s “advanceable refundable tax credits” plan which shifts more of a tax burden onto the elderly and the poor, while enriching the profits of the mighty insurance corporations. Lewis has failed in his campaign promise to dump Obamacare. But fear not, he still has a few more months remaining in his term of office to support more smoke and mirrors Obamacare replacements.
