Republicans are pushing to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and slash Medicare. - Briefing Room

Remember that members of Congress are paid $174,000 with your tax payer dollars. They also get access to “free or low-cost care” through the Office of the Attending Physician as well as “free medical outpatient care at military facilities” in the D.C. area. - CNBC
  

Check this map to see the number of people without health insurance there are in each state, congressional district and county. How many young people and seniors do not have healthcare? Where are the millions of Americans who will be devastated by this Republican scheme to gut healthcare?


The map also includes their phone number, email address and mailing address so you can ask your Republican rep how they justify getting paid with your tax dollars but threatening to cancel the healthcare that you get through ACA and Medicaid?

Republicans take healthcare hostage

Virtually every Republican budget or fiscal plan over the last decade has included repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and deep cuts to Medicaid. - WH Briefing Room
- higher health care costs for tens of millions of Americans
- ending critical protections for people with pre-existing conditions
- millions of people losing health coverage and care
- threats to health care for seniors and people with disabilities
- growing home care waiting lists
- worse nursing home care

Republicans plan to repeal ACA

If Republicans succeed in repealing the Affordable Care Act and cutting Medicaid

More than 100 million people with pre-existing health conditions could lose critical protections. Before the ACA, more than 100 million Americans with pre-existing health conditions could have been denied coverage or charged more if they tried to buy individual market health insurance. Republican repeal proposals either eliminate these protections outright or find other ways to gut them.

Up to 24 million people could lose protection against catastrophic medical bills. Before the ACA, insurance plans were not required to limit enrollees’ total costs, and almost one in five people with employer coverage had no limit on out-of-pocket costs, meaning they were exposed to tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills if they became seriously ill.

Tens of millions of people could see their prescription drug coverage scaled back. Prescription drug coverage is an optional benefit under Medicaid. If states faced large cuts to their federal Medicaid funding, millions of Medicaid enrollees could see their coverage scaled back or have a harder time getting their prescriptions because of extra red tape.

More of the over 500 rural hospitals at risk of closure could close. The ACA, especially its expansion of Medicaid, helped cut hospital uncompensated care by about $12 billion, helping hospitals, especially rural hospitals, stay afloat. Between 2010 and 2021, nearly three-fourths of rural hospital closures were in states that have not adopted Medicaid expansion, with research finding that expansion disproportionately improved rural hospital margins and helped avert rural hospital closures. If the ACA is repealed, and millions lose coverage, closures among at-risk hospitals could increase significantly. Read more

Republicans increase deficit to take your healthcare hostage

Republicans create deficit that threatens ACA and Medicare

Americans deserve to see congressional Republicans’ full and detailed budget plan, including what it cuts from the ACA and Medicaid, Social Security and Medicare, and other critical programs, and should have the chance to compare it with the President’s budget plan, which he will release March 9. Will the Republican plan be Senator Scott's plan that calls for Federal programs such as Medicaid to be renewed? “All federal legislation sunsets in 5 years" - 11 Point Plan

TakeAway: Hold politicians whose salaries you pay accountable for putting their politics ahead of your healthcare.
