Who gains and who loses under the Affordable Care Act replacement?

An Urban Institute report issued today on the "American Health Care Act" finds that, "taking both tax reductions and benefit reductions into account, the average high-income family would be significantly better off and the average low-income family would be significantly worse off under the AHCA."

Specifically, under the bill, "[t]he average family with less than $10,000 of income in 2022 would be $1,420 worse off, a net reduction of more than 30 percent of the family’s income. The average family with more than $200,000 of income in 2022 would be $5,640 better off, a net increase of 1.1 percent of the family’s income."
