cut obama csare

Everyone…EVERYONE keeps saying ‘Oh well that will never happen because the President would veto it’.

Why isn’t it important that the Republican policy is to TAKE AWAY health care from millions of people.

Republican Health Care :

‘If the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is repealed, the following

would occur’:

‘Lifetime limits of healthcare coverage will be reinstated’

  • ‘You can be denied coverage for pre-existing medical conditions’

‘Insurance Companies, who are now required to spend 80% of premiums
exclusively on providing healthcare, will again be able to spend more
on CEO bonuses, perks and non-healthcare related expenditures’

  • ‘Coverage can again be rescinded after claims are made without notice
    or appeal’

‘Millions of Americans who have recently received healthcare coverage
will lose it’

  • ‘State Governments will lose billions of dollars meant to supplement
    Medicaid expansion for their indigent population’

‘Healthcare costs will rise as more uninsured people go to emergency
rooms for care, with the costs being sent out to those who have
insurance and tax-payers to compensate for’

  • ‘Children who are now covered from age 19 through 26 on their
    parents’ coverage will lose coverage’

‘Insurance company “Death Panels” (for lack of a better term) will
deny services to covered patients who are current with their
premiums, for any technical reasons they can find to avoid paying out
and the patient will have no recourse to appeal’

  • ‘Coverage for testing to prevent onset of more serious conditions
    will be cut’

‘Profits for the CEO’s, Board of Directors and shareholders will
increase while premiums for insurance plans increase and coverage
decrease (as it was prior to ObamaCare going into effect)’

  • ‘Medicare expenditures for wasteful “Medicare Plus” plans being
    reinstated, reducing the lifetime solvency of Medicare’.

‘Prenatal care programs will be cut’

  • ‘Women’s healthcare costs will increase over that of men’s coverage’

‘Mental Health parity coverage will be eliminated’

  • ‘Millions more will lose healthcare benefits as health insurance
    costs increase beyond their ability to pay’

‘Bankruptcy rates resulting from catastrophic medical healthcare
costs will return’

How Republicans Will Govern – ‘McConnell and Boehner Announce Plan to Take Health Insurance Away From 1 Million Americans’


The slow cut…..cut….cut….of social programs and basic needs.

‘It took Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. John Boehner one day to show the American people what this Republican Congress will have in store for them’.

‘Congressional Republicans know that they can’t repeal the ACA, so they are going to try to chip away at the edges of the law in order takeaway health insurance from as many people as possible’.


‘Mitch McConnell and John Boehner have announced that one of the first things that the new Republican controlled Congress will do it take away health insurance from 1 million Americans’.

‘In their Wall Street Journal op-ed McConnell and Boehner wrote’ :

“a proposal to restore the traditional 40-hour definition of full-time employment, removing an arbitrary and destructive government barrier to more hours and better pay created by the Affordable Care Act of 2010”.

‘A return to tradition sounds nice, until one understands what that means. Republicans are trying to take private employer based health insurance away from one million Americans. House Republicans tried this same move in February 2014, and the impact on healthcare was spelled out by the CBO’.

‘The CBO concluded’ :
