Donald Trump and his Republican supporters are at it again: they’re trying to take Americans’ health care away, to gut the Affordable Care Act.
Enough, enough, enough. It’s time to organize and stand against this ridiculousness.
If the Affordable Care Act is entirely struck down, it would mean disaster for so many of our friends, family, and neighbors.
The basic numbers are chilling:
As many as 21 million Americans would lose their health insurance coverage.
Up to 109 million Americans would be hit with coverage caps, after which their insurance won't pay for treatment.
133 million Americans with pre-existing conditions would potentially be disqualified from getting insurance at all.
We must not go back to the time when big insurance companies called the shots, to a time where our health care system cared more about maximizing than providing care to the sick and vulnerable.
