The GOP in any almost complete Partyline vote has voted to change your healthcare. They people covered under Obamacare will see a change in the Senate approves this. If you have a pre-existing condition say High blood pressure, COPD, pregnancy, arthritis, allergies, having a child after a rape…. Well it’s not good for you. Your health insurer can charge you say $17,000 in additional premiums but will have to keep you once you pay that enormous price to stay insured.
How can this be? Hard to say because every other time a complex bill is introduced the Congressiomal Budget Office reviews it to see impact on estimated cost and whay it will do to the US economy. Healthcare accounts for 1 out of every $6 spent in this country! Kind of important.
Your Representive had no idea whay they voted for. There are no details given out before today. They had 40 minutes of debate then a vote. No time to review anything. Why the rush? Their vacation starts tomorrow. And Trump needed a win.
But if this doesn’t matter my health insurance comes from work…… Well every provider bases cost on risk. There are riders in the bill that allow for changes I private sectorto make coverages economicly fair. Meaning they can raise your costs to justify the raise elsewhere.
But cheer up if you retired, there will be millions of jobs. They promised, remember? If you area younger than 50, there are bills that will increase the minimum Social Security age to 70 in the pipeline now.
