52 million W/Preexisting Conditions Could Lose Insurance.Senate Voted To End Pre Existing Protection

The 30 million people losing insurance with end ACA could be low. If you end protections of ACA 52 million people have pre existing conditions. I have said a number of times that people losing insurance could go as high as 100 million. The GOP knows it is playing with fire but is determined to set everything ablaze.

If the MSM were really honest and doing its job they could flush these turds tomorrow.

2. But they're free!

 

It's all about freedom. Now they're free to die, free from the oppressive rules the government imposed on them, free to spend their life savings on health care instead of seeing their greedy little offspring get their grubby mitts on it.

3. To be fair..

I don't think the Senate specifically voted to end protection for pre-existing conditions.

Rather they voted to repeal the entire ACA package, which includes that protection, among many many other useful provisions.

And to be more accurate still, the Senate only approved a budget blueprint to remove funding for the ACA. Not a repeal, per se. That blueprint is an advisory to the various Senate subcommittees that will be drafting the repeal.

I'm not sure, but I don't think the Senate can line item remove funding for just the pre-existing clause anyway. But they could remove other funding that could hobleg the ACA and make it basically dysfuncitonal. It could then be up to states like California and NY to step in and craft their own health care legislation, similar to what Mass did two decades ago.

Hopefully the Senate Dems can filibuster a full on repeal regardless of the budget reconciliation end run.

4. My Understanding There Were Individual Amendments To Remove Those Protections ----

as part of the process to start the process to eliminate the entire law.
