Overcharging older Americans will not fix healthcare system

Screen Shot

With the U.S. House preparing to vote on a proposal to repeal and replace the 2010 Affordable Care Act, Republicans continue to overwhelmingly oppose the law, and most say it's not the government's responsibility to make sure all Americans have health care coverage.

"When I took office, millions of Americans were locked out of our health care system", he said.

Do we call ourselves public servants if we're not protecting those who can not afford health care? The new plan, called the American Health Care Act, has proven controversial among both Republicans and Democrats because of its cuts to Medicaid and its restructuring of taxes. In fact, the Congressional Budget Office - a nonpartisan agency that provides budget analysis for proposed bills - found that "in 2018, the number of uninsured would be 14 million larger under the Republican bill than under Obamacare".

The Republican bill would eliminate the mandate to purchase health care, which was a central tenet of President Barack Obama's signature domestic policy achievement.

If passed, the AHCA would defund Planned Parenthood, a service offering people of all genders essential health care and services. Another politician chimed in, saying, "If I were a betting man, I'd say there won't be a vote today".

With this, the Bombay High Court ordered the striking resident doctors to join work or face action by the management. But doctors refused to budge till some of their demands in terms of security were implemented immediately.

I and my fellow Americans will pay for this problematic situation, inefficient and inhuman as it is.

Importantly, the AHCA maintains a firewall between the new tax credits and the existing employer sponsored insurance, which over 177 million individuals rely for highly valued coverage.

People will share their stories about how the ACA has impacted them and talk about what will happen if the affordable care act is repealed. Recent counts indicated about 28 Republicans meant to vote against the measure, which would stop the overhaul. Approval polls show a clear difference when respondents are questioned on Obamacare versus the Affordable Care Act, even though they're the exact same thing.

Changes leaders made this would give states more flexibility in their Medicaid programs, including instituting work requirements for recipients.

While the bill known as "Trumpcare" would save the government over $300 billion, almost 24 million Americans would suffer. "Prior to the passage of the ACA, many people living with pre-existing conditions like HIV or cancer, would have been denied health insurance coverage until they became extremely sick or disabled".
