How Trumpcare cuts taxes for the wealthiest, in one simple chart

The Senate Republican health care bill is a massive tax cut bill for the wealthiest citizens  masquerading as health care reform.  It would eliminate the Net Investment Income Tax, which applies only to income from investments and only on taxpayers making more than $200,000 or $250,000, depending on filing status.  That’s the main reason almost 60 percent of the benefits of the bill would go to people making more than $1 million annually, while most people earning less than $100,000 would either lose benefits or save just a few dollars in taxes.

Here’s a graphic from The Upshot, in The New York Times, showing who wins and loses under Trumpcare.
