« Paul Krugman: A Party Not Ready to Govern | Main | Links for 03-07-17 »

The "Trumpdoesn'tcare" health care proposal has been released (calling it "Trumpcare" implies he, and the GOP, do care -- they don't). Here's Krugman's quick take on Twitter:

Paul Krugman: Can't do full analysis until tomorrow. But GOP now basically accepts logic of ACA - just determined to offer an inferior version

Paul Krugman: Philosophical case for free markets has been abandoned (because it's so obviously wrong here) Mean spiritedness is all that's left.

Paul Krugman: It's not Obamacare 2.0. It's Obamacare 0.5 - a half-assed attempt to preserve ACA successes without spending nearly enough money

Guess who does well, and who is hurt? More details here and here.
