ACA Week - Day 2
The Congressional Budget Office report is in. The non-partisan report predicts that one year after passage of Paul Ryan’s repeal-and-replace legislation, 14 million fewer people will have healthcare coverage. Ryan is crowing about how much the deficit will go down as a result. But all right-thinking people can surely agree that removing health care from Americans is not a good way to save money.
Here’s the Washington Post from Monday with an article about the proposed plan. It’ll give you some talking points to contact your representatives. Please - once again - call or write to your House representative and your Senators to say that you have read about the CBO report and you are alarmed, horrified, shocked, disgusted - well, you know what to say - about the proposal.
Democrats as well as Republicans should hear us telling them loud and clear that we want them to do everything they can to block passage of the bill. There are a number of Republicans who aren’t happy with it either, so the more voices which are heard, the better.
