Here's an example of why it wonderful to live in the States ......, if you're rich!
(If not, then you have problems my friend.)
Obamacare was not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but compare that to what the Republicans are doing NOW!
That's not all this new plan would do kids:The Congressional Budget Office concluded that overall premiums for health care would fall in large part because older, poorer Americans who aren’t yet on Medicare would be priced out of insurance. Under the proposal, a 64-year-old making less than $30,000 would have to pay about $15,000 for insurance—or $13,000 more than under Obamacare. This is not a healthcare policy but an immiseration policy, in which the world’s largest economy would force older Americans to choose between their house and their insurance.
Trump once pledged “insurance for everybody,” but this plan will result in 24 million fewer people covered by insurance, perhaps the largest single social-welfare cut in American history. The president promised to “save Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security without cuts,” but the plan cuts $880 billion from Medicaid over the next 10 years. For good measure, the bill cuts taxes by $600 billion, and these savings go disproportionately to the top 1 percent.(The Republican plan has not discovered a magic bullet to fix public insurance programs so much as it’s discovered that coverage is cheaper when insurance companies don’t have to suffer the inconvenience of actually insuring old, sick people. By cutting off insurance to the old, sick, rural, and poor, the AHCA seems to reserve its most severe punishment for the demographic that was core to Trump’s national support. If only the CBO could score for irony.)
SO, there is a solution to all this stuff folks ........, if you're not rich, and you still voted for Drumpf, hurry and make an appointment as soon as possible with a psychiatrist to find out what the hell is wrong with you!
