Here’s an example of how that might look for DeKalb County residents based on Kaiser’s analysis.
A 27-year-old making $30,000 a year would see his credit increase by $1,320, from $680 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 $200.

Older DeKalb residents would get hit harder. A 60-year-old making $20,000 a year would see her credit slashed by more than $3,000, while someone the same age making $40,000 would see his credit reduced by $110.
Among those who would benefit most under the Republican plan are higher income earners who currently don’t qualify for Obamacare tax credits, which cut off at around $48,000. The new plan would allow people earning up to $75,000 to get tax credits.
