Rob FullerRob Fuller was quoted in the article, “Does the AHCA take away a veterans tax credit?” published by The Press-Enterprise on May 8, 2017. In the article, Rob is asked to mediate a dispute about the AHCA’s coverage of a veterans tax credit between Rep. Mark Takano (D-Riverside) and Rep. Ken Calvert (R-Corona). Rob’s reading of the Republican bill sides with Takano:

“All the mechanics that were in place for the Affordable Care Act to provide tax credits and subsidies get replaced en masse with tax credits proposed in the American Health Care Act,” Fuller said.

“I don’t see anything in the bill that saved (the veterans’ credit). I don’t think (the AHCA) treated veterans separately,” Fuller added. “To the extent (the credit) was part and parcel of (Obamacare), it’s gone.”
