“I want it to be good for sick people,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with Bloomberg News. “It’s not in its final form right now. It will be every bit as good on pre-existing conditions as Obamacare.” —As reported in today’s New York Times.
No, no, it’s not. In fact, depending on your state’s politics, your health care could cost so much more due to your pre-existing condition that you won’t be able to afford it.
H.R.1628 – American Health Care Act of 2017 could be up for a vote this week, which means we need to dial up Rep. Gibbs pronto. To understand the bill, its recent amendment and the implications of both, check out Politifact’s guide to the GOP amendment to health care bill. For a wonky, detailed analysis, visit the Kaiser Family Foundation‘s proposal comparisons.
But if you only have time to do one thing, call Rep. Bob Gibbs and tell him to vote no on H.R. 1628, tell him to protect our health care, tell him to care for his constituents and look into his heart, tell him to do the moral thing. Call him now: (202) 225-6265.
More ways you can protect the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) this week: MoveOn.org is looking for hosts to hold rallies outside of regional congressional offices on Thursday, and Indivisible has talking points, actions, and more to fight back.
We’ve pushed back before and won. We can do this.
