I hate getting political - I DO, but I have no choice.
The American Health Care Act, (AHCA,) the Republican Replacement Plan for ACA goes to vote in congress tomorrow - it's a horrible plan that puts our lives and quality of healthcare as people with diabetes in jeopardy - AHCA puts ALL Americans lives; liberties, freedoms (including financial,) and future healthcare plans in jeopardy.
I have an Affordable Healthcare Plan (ACA/Obamacare,) and it’s working for me on all fronts.
Even if it wasn’t, there’s no way I’d accept the Republican Replacement Plan because quite frankly, it’s terrible.
The AHCA brings back high risk pools - devastating for those of us with pre-existing conditions; adds an age tax to anyone over the age of 52, includes drastic cuts to medicaid, and includes a Health Care Savings Account option that is absolutely worthless to anyone with a pre-existing condition.
Diabetes wise, those accounts would be would be depleted ASAP, to pay for insulin, doctor's appointments, test-strips, pump supplies, and would cover the bare minimum.
Tomorrow Congress votes on AHCA and today I’m speaking up - and I hope you do too!
Today is the day to make your voice heard - today is the day to call your Rep in Congress and tell them to vote NO re: (AHCA) The American Health Care Act, the Republican Replacement Plan for ACA.
Whether you’re a fan of ACA/Obamacare or not, the Republican Replacement plan - AHCA is a horrific substitute that will cause 52 million Americans to be uninsured by 2026.
The AHCA DOES NOT lower costs, it will increase them - whether you are insured by the plan or not.
The AHCA DOES NOT improve insurance, it negatively impacts everyone's health insurance across the board.
The AHCA DOES NOT improve healthcare - it is detrimental to healthcare.
AHCA tax credits disproportionately benefit the wealthy - those who most likely would not be on The AHCA; the proposed medicaid cuts put30 million children (including children with diabetes and children on state CHIP programs,) at risk, not to mention increased costs tothe elderly, the economy, and adults with diabetes on medicaid and off, will be astronomical.
No matter what side of the fence you sit, the American people deserve better than the The American Health Care Act.
