'Republican Care' hurtful to many

Success - Article sent! close

The Republican House can be extremely proud along with all their insurance company buddies with the passage of the new health care bill.

What this means is that there will be massive increases for elderly between 50-64 years old.

This will mean that over time estimates of 24 million people may lose their insurance health care, some of my friends and family and neighbors. And Medicare will be weakened -- which is a long held dream of Republicans and their form of care. Expect vouchers to be on the agenda soon.

Medicaid will be reduced and will impact many neighbors and friends and others in this district. Insurance premiums for those with pre-existing illnesses will go up, drastically. Oh, I forget, there has to be a process of the state requesting a waiver, let me guess how many nanoseconds that will take for Illinois and Governor Rauner to put the waiver process into action for their good friends the insurance companies?

Republican Care -- who would have thought it would hurt so many so much?
