Trump threatens to stop ObamaCare payments

Trump threatens to stop ObamaCare payments

This draconian tax break for the wealthy disguised as a "health care" bill is the beginning of the conservatives' push for austerity measures in the US - such as those that have been imposed in some European countries where people are suffering greatly right now. 66% disapprove of Trump's method of dealing with health care compared to only 28% who approve. Kevin Brady, Ed Royce, Martha McSally, Greg Walden, and Steve Scalise, among others. Many experts point to these issues: containing the cost of health care, especially prescription drugs; fostering greater competition in the state health insurance exchanges; and persuading the 19 states that haven't expanded access to their Medicaid programs to do so.

Republicans want states to set up high risk pools for those with pre-existing conditions.

Waiting for the flawless health insurance proposal is not an option, however.

Rightfully so. This is one more glaring example of our elected officials ignoring the wishes of the people who elected them. "It will be every bit as good on pre-existing conditions as Obamacare".

According to The Wall Street Journal, nearly half of Americans receive health care through their employer.

Republicans are intent on repealing the Affordable Care Act so they can give a giant tax cut to the rich, who'd no longer have to pay the tab, and allow healthy people to opt out altogether.

This Trumpcare bill is a cruel and cynical hoax, played on millions upon millions of Americans who would lose all or some of their health insurance protections under this plan.

A GoFundMe page to help the family with medical bills has quickly raised more than $40,000 and counting. The 6-year-old boy, Lennox Lake, was hospitalized with serious injuries to his head.

Needless to say, we won't be holding our breath, but we will be holding another election.

The version of the AHCA first considered by the House in March was projected to reduce federal deficits by $337 billion over 10 years, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis.

House Democrats, led by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), have said GOP lawmakers will lose their seats over the bill.

"The bill as passed by the House has virtually no chance of passage in the Senate", Hobson says. Sadly, leaders on Congress wanted to pass a bill so badly to make a political splash that they didn't feel the need to do their homework. That is ironic since anyone who really looks at their plan will see that their goal is to trump numerous improvements in health care, especially for those on the lower economic levels. The Kaiser Family Foundation's most recent poll showed that 48 percent of Americans want to keep the existing law and improve it; only 41 percent want to repeal and replace it.

During last year's campaign, Trump paid lip service to improving the US health care system.

The clobbering tool has been passed to the Democrats and they will try to employ it during the 2018 midterm elections.
