Beyond the statistics produced by the Children's Defense Fund, Sara Collins, vice president for health care coverage and access at the Commonwealth Fund in Manhattan, said the Republican measure takes away advantages that are part of the Affordable Care Act.

"While we have performed better than many of our competitors, it is increasingly hard to remain in the exchange market under its current structure", Swedish said.
