You need to understand Trumpcare fully because many of you are going to get hurt, some badly. As many as 15 million Americans will lose their current health insurance. Little wonder why the GOP is pushing this through without hearings and without a Congressional Budget Office review. Please call the delegation today. Liz Cheney (202) 225-2311 Mike Enzi (888) 250-1879 John Barrasso 202-224-6441
The GOP measure, called the American Health Care Act (AHCA), has advanced out of two House committees and is on its way to a floor vote in a matter of weeks despite taking fire from all sides including conservatives, the AARP, and The American Medical Association .
The measure repeals many core aspects of ObamaCare, including the subsidies to help people buy insurance and the extra federal funds for the expansion of Medicaid after 2019. In its place would be a new system centered on a new tax credit to help people afford insurance. But the GOP doesn’t seem to understand that most of us can’t afford to pay up front for expensive health insurance and hope to qualify for a refund with our tax return.
Ask Cheney, Barrasso, And Enzy about their taxpayer funded health insurance. DO you know your taxes pay for a premium policy that covers each Member of Congress and their families insurance for life? Why don’t we have a taxpayer-funded plan like theirs?
