The Senate voted 51 to 48:
1. To end coverage for preexisting conditions, veterans benefits, and aid to rural hospitals.
2. To remove discrimination protection for women in healthcare.
3. Against the provision allowing children to remain on their parent’s insurance till the age of 26.
4. To cut off funding for the Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
5. Against ACA contraceptive coverage and maternity care provision.
6. To direct committees to send budget legislation to defund and repeal the Affordable Care Act.
For those who get health insurance through work, no pre-existing conditions. Lifetime caps for coverage are back for everyone.
Real and disastrous actions are being taken that will affect more than just the 20-30 million people who will lose their health care coverage and the 3 million people who will lose their jobs.
Despite their assertions of this being an action to “repeal and replace,” no viable alternative plan has been proposed.
The House votes Friday.
As of this moment, no replacement exists.
This is sickening. Everyone is on the Get rid of the Obamacare the worst thing that has every happened in the world. Its horrible. Well for my young friends who have received a transplant and are in college and working little jobs to start off their lives they are lost in the shuffle. Angel(my daughter) will be lost in the shuffle. All her little friends from the hospital will be lost in the shuffle. Every day I get collection notices daily from offices because she is medicare, medicaid and CMS except CMS no longer exists, the Children’s medical services is now an insurance company which is your medicaid and they do just about nothing. So people like me who have no income, No LONG LOST INHERITANCE from my dead husband, or his imaginary checks will be covering Angels medical needs. We get so many bills now, They wanted her to have these Ostomy supplies that don’t work because the medical supply company makes no money on them. It is already a sick world we live in but come on healthcare in a country like ours should simply be a given. We should have a sliding scale for every family no matter how little or big is there income and everyone with the same benefits. If you make 300 dollars a month you can’t pay 300 in insurance but you can pay 3. If you make 3000 you can’t pay 2000 but you can pay 300 dollars or something much better than my own, not very educated self can come up with. Well I guess all our transplant patients will have to have 9 jobs to buy anti rejection meds because they are already way too expensive.
Blame it on whoever you want this system is flawed, just as flawed as the welfare system and just as flawed to all the perfect people out there that think they jumping on the bandwagon of any politician that truly has you personally in mind you are only fooling yourself. I don’t get it hope something fixes it soon.
