House Republicans vote to take away healthcare from millions of Americans so they can give another round of tax breaks to the uber rich - May 4th, 2017
Nearly everyone loses if Trumpcare 3.0 becomes law except for the millionaires and billionaires. Basically it takes away lifesaving medical treatment from people struggling to pay their bills just so the uber rich can have another round of tax breaks.
- A minimum of 24 million people could lose their health insurance. That number will go up when the Congressional Budget Office scores the bill next week.
- Premiums will spike insanely for people with pre-existing conditions (that includes acid reflux, high cholesterol, depression, hypertension, obesity, cancer, etc.)
- Premiums will spike insanely for people who are older than 50.
- Medicaid, the program that protects children, seniors, the working poor, and people with disabilities -- will be gutted.
- Medicare will lose $117 billion that will be put into the pockets of the rich.
It's not a Healthcare bill it's a Wealthcare bill. We could go on for pages about how bad this is, but Senator Bernie Sanders summed it up the best in two minutes during an interview with Anderson Cooper.
