Here’s an example of how that might look for Cobb County residents based on Kaiser’s analysis.
A 27-year-old making $30,000 a year would see his credit increase by $170, from $1,830 under Obamacare to $2,000 under the new plan. Meanwhile, a person the same age but making $20,000 would see his credit decrease by $1,350.
Older Cobb residents would get hit even harder. A 60-year-old making $20,000 a year would see her credit slashed by more than $6,000, while someone the same age making $50,000 would see his credit reduced by about $2,000.
