Tomorrow is the ACA’s 7th Anniversary. The Repeal Vote is TOMORROW.
Tomorrow is the seventh anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, but we can’t sit back and rattle off its accomplishments. We need to stand up and fight for it.
Republicans in Congress are holding the vote repeal the ACA and replace it with Trumpcare.
They are charging forward with their place to replace a law that insured 22 million Americans and 200,000 Wisconsinites with one that will strip coverage away from 24 million Americans by 2026.
Health care is bigger than politics. We are dealing with people’s lives and livelihoods. The number one determinant of whether people can pay their medical bills or not is whether they have insurance.
Under Trumpcare, many vulnerable Americans will be outpriced. Insurance companies will be able to charge seniors five times more than younger enrollees. Americans with pre-existing conditions will see their rates soar if they let their coverage lapse, and fewer low-income families will be covered under Medicaid.
The ACA isn’t perfect, but it brings us a step closer to insuring all Americans. Trumpcare sends us stumbling backward. No family in Wisconsin or across the country should have to face financial ruin when they get sick.
