The Right to kill O-Care without any replacement!!!!

Excerpt from CAP article at this link:

“With only two weeks left to move forward with a partisan health care repeal bill, some Senate Republicans are trying one last time to rip coverage from millions of Americans. Their latest effort, introduced by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA), would make devastating cuts to Medicaid and cut and eventually eliminate funding that helps people in the individual insurance market afford coverage, leading to at least 32 million fewer people having coverage after 2026. What’s more, the bill would let insurers in the individual market charge a premium markup based on health status and history, which could increase premiums for people with pre-existing conditions by tens of thousands of dollars.

CAP estimated what surcharges would be for various medical conditions in states that eliminate pre-existing condition protections. Based on our analysis, we estimate that individuals with even relatively mild pre-existing conditions would pay thousands of dollars above standard rates to obtain coverage. For example, an individual with asthma would face a premium surcharge of $4,340. The surcharge for diabetes would be $5,600 per year. Coverage could become prohibitively expensive for those in dire need of care: Insurers would charge about $17,320 more in premiums for pregnancy, $26,580 more for rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune disorders, and $142,650 more for patients with metastatic cancer.”

This will impact you in some way even if you have employer insurance.  Just tearing apart healthcare without having another program to replace it is irresponsible for what amounts to one-sixth of our economy not to mention throwing millions off healthcare.  Call your senators today and every day till this gets killed!!!
