    Pretty much says it all:

    Scalise tapped a member of the House Doctors Caucus, Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.), to lead a working group that met once or twice a week over the last several months to draft the proposal.

    Roe said Scalise came to him a few months ago with a set of marching orders. “He said you can’t have any mandates in this bill. You can’t raise taxes. You’ve got to reform the tax code, but there can’t be any subsidies involved,” Roe recalled. “That’s pretty limited in what we can do. I think within those parameters, we came up with a pretty good bill.”

    No coverage for pre-existing conditions, college students and meaningless tax credits if you don't have the liability to take advantage of them (and if your income is small enough, your tax liability in real dollars isn't significant enough that if you didn't pay the cash in taxes, you wouldn't spend it on overpriced health insurance).

    It's amazing what people will do to others in the name of themselves.
