Are you glad Trump's followers will get whacked bigly next year on healthcare?

    Healthcare Reform News Updates

    n a statement, Baldwin called the plans “junk insurance” and said that they “could increase costs and reduce access to quality coverage for millions, force premium increases on older Americans, and harm people with pre-existing conditions.”

    The number of uninsured dropped from 29.3 million in 2017 to 28.3 million the first quarter of 2018, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show.

    That compares to 48.6 million uninsured in 2010, prior to the enactment of the Affordable Care Act—a 58.2 percent reduction.

    Other findings in the data show:

    • There are 12.5 percent Americans between the ages of 18 and 64 who remain uninsured.
    • In Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas, almost 25 percent of adults are uninsured.
    • Twenty percent of insured adults are covered by public plans, while 70 percent are covered by private plans.
    • More than 95 percent of children are insured by either public or private plans.
    • The number of people under age 65 covered by ACA plans in 2018 is 9.7 million, about 1 million fewer people than last year.
    Healthcare isn't a game. The Texas ACA lawsuit could be catastrophic for public health

    20 Republican governors and attorneys general are trying to accomplish in court what Republican lawmakers repeatedly failed to do in Congress: removal of the ACA and its vital protections for consumers.

    According to the New England Journal of Medicine, health insurance provides “significant, multifaceted and nuanced benefits to health.” The American Journal of Public Health has reported that people who do not have health insurance die prematurely.

    Overturning the ACA will result in a catastrophic loss of coverage for millions of Americans. According to a new analysis by the Urban Institute, if the ACA is invalidated, more than 17 million people would lose coverage in 2019. That would be a 50% increase in the number of uninsured in just one year, including 12 million people who receive insurance through the marketplaces created by the ACA and 2.3 million young adults who gained coverage through its expansion of dependent care.

    ---------------------------------

    So why are Republicans trying so hard to hurt tens of millions of Americans? Is it because of the Blue Wave in November? They figure they will just go ahead and screw over as many millions of Americans they can?
    Look at the states in the lawsuit. It's mostly Trump voters who will lose out.
    First their jobs from tariffs then their healthcare? What's next? Cutting their food stamps? Taking their houses? Doesn't the leadership understand that even though Trump voters will vote Trump no matter what he does to them, the homeless rarely vote?

    The last estimate I heard was 9 million will lose coverage, now, it's up to 17 million. Good Job! That's the GOP!

    GOP Senate Candidates Are Scrambling To Rewrite Their Record On Pre-Existing Conditions

    Protections for people with pre-existing conditions are wildly popular, and Obamacare itself is gaining in the polls. Democrats know this and have been hammering Republican candidates over and over again, especially in the reddest states on the political map. (Trump won the 11 states with the highest percentage of adults with pre-existing conditions by an average of 26 percentage points; five of those states have competitive Senate races in 2018.)

    In almost every state with a competitive Senate race, the Democratic candidate or an outside group controlled by allies of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is airing an ad on pre-existing conditions.

    Get ready for hearing a lot about healthcare next month.

    Democrats want people to have care.

    Republicans couldn't care less. Perhaps even looking forward to getting people off healthcare - permanently.

    It will be too late for Republicans to do anything.

    Sad, for their supporters. The ones hurt most.

    The faster Trump sheep die off the better. The silver lining in Trump’s war on healthcare.

    Millions will lose coverage that they never wanted in the first place. That 50 year old guy never really wanted maternity and lactation coverage.

    Dean happily creates his own reality. As if the negative aspects of Obamacare will selectively hurt only Trump supporters. Yeah ok you go with that.

    They REALLY ARE this stupid folks.

    In fact Deanturd is the epitome of "stupid liberal".

    In a way we need to thank the fucking parasite for making liberalism so repulsive to the ordinary person that the democrooks have so few seats left to lose, that if they pick up ANY, they can call it a "blue wave".

    When did I say it would only affect Trump supporters?
    Oh I get it you’re a liar.
    But of course that’s what Republicans are. They follow their leadership.
