Default AHCA, aka, killing bill

I've posted this elsewhere, but I'm re-posting here, in case someone still looks in.

Today there is a House of Representative vote that will eliminate premium caps and protection for pre-exisiting conditions, not only for "those people" who don't qualify to employee-provided health insurance.

This bill will not affect 'only' 24 million people over the next few years. This bill will directly affect over 170 million people over the same period.

This bill also makes rape, pregnancy, depression, and more, "pre-existing conditions" that would make a person un-insurable.

The people voting today--House of Representatives--will get to keep these protections for themselves and their staff, but they'll happily eliminate them for everyone else.

They are spending exactly 40 minutes to 'debate' this vote, without Congressional Budget Office report on it, and without making public the full text of the bill.

For context: the last time a healthcare bill was passed, there were SEVENTY NINE Congressional hearings. Seventy. Nine.

Think about that for a minute, and perhaps spend five minutes to call your member of Congress to tell them whether their vote represents you interests or those of the wealthiest 1%.

It's your life and the lives of those you love.

If you are wondering who to call, there are some list floating about.

There's this one.

And this one.

Oh, and if you think I'm fear mongering and exaggerating about the rape thing? Read this.

How about that employer provided health insurance? Read this.

Oh, and I forgot one! This lovely new 'health' bill? Targets Special Education. Read this.
