From his first day in Office, President Trump has been talking about repealing ObamaCare. After the failed attempt back in March, it looks like the Republicans and Trump are finally getting their wish and completely screwing millions of Americans.

That’s right. Approximately 24 million Americans just lost healthcare coverage. Now TrumpCare has passed the House and is headed to Senate and it’s the wealthy that gain. Pelosi said, “It was a tax bill, not a healthcare bill; it’s a billionaires’ tax cut bill, disguised as health care.” On the topic of the American Health Care Act “higher costs and less care,” won, she said.
In fact, not one Republican voted it down. So, now that the Affordable Care Act has been repealed. According to Avalere Health, only 5% of Americans with preexisting conditions who currently have individual coverage will benefit from the new American Health Care Act.
The President of Avalere, a consulting and research firm said, “The bill does not assure a predictable and structured mechanism through which people with preexisting conditions are guaranteed coverage.”
Avalere also pointed out that, “The $23 billion “specifically allocated” in the AHCA to help individuals with preexisting conditions will cover only 110,000 individuals. In California alone, there are 301,000 people with pre-existing conditions in the individual insurance market.”
Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, in California alone, there are 301,000 people with pre-existing conditions in the individual insurance market, according to Forbes.
