The Congressional GOP and The President, Donald Trump, have now opened the doors to insurance companies to charge people with pre-existing ailments, to pregnancy, much higher premium. Is this what America means when it states it will protect the weakest citizens? So will old age be considered a pre-existing crime?
The new American Health Care Act treats pre-existing ailments and pregnancy as crimes, and not as medical needs. Are you ready to pay a higher premium just for being human? It’s coming.
Pregnancy is a pre-existing condition under Trumpcare, but no worries, erectile dysfunction is still covered. Do not follow the word of God and get married and have children because you will be punished. An American citizen was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of three and have been in remission for twelve years but apparently, does not live the “right way” they are now one of the criminal #IAmAPreexistingCondition Americans.
Americans are sitting stymied by this terrible health insurance system that the Trump, Paul Ryan, and the Republican Congress came up with. How could Americans as a loving, caring society start treating pre-existing health issues and pregnancy as criminal health issues? America has started to fall off that precipice of being a world leader to being a third world racist, bigoted, hateful society. The evidence is in the wording of the bill, and under the new bill, states could apply for waivers to allow insurers to charge higher premiums based on medical history. We are getting closer to death panels than any Republican had ever threatened with Barack Obama’s health care act.
With this new health insurance, instead of people being insured, they will be penalized for living and existing. Under the President’s agenda, those, at no fault of their own, with pre-existing conditions will be charged financially as though they are some type of criminal. Who will be hurt by this ignorance? The American poor and low-middle-income American will be punished. While the rich millionaires and billionaires will be just fine, as long as they keep getting those sweet tax breaks from Trump and the GOP.
United Healthcare, Cigna and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield which is three of the largest insurance providers in America had considered a person “uninsurable” and could decline coverage if an applicant had a certain health issue. Insurance companies have listed the health issues but most of these money making institutions reserved the right to add more conditions, and here is a short list of those pre-existing conditions.
“AIDS or ARC, Acromegaly, Alzheimer’s Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Anemia (Aplastic, Cooley’s, Hemolytic, Mediterranean or Sickle Cell), Aortic or Mitral Valve stenosis, Arteriosclerosis, Arteritis, Asbestosis, Cancer,
Cardiomyopathy, Cerebral Palsy (infantile), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Cirrhosis of the Liver, Coagulation Defects,Congestive Heart Failure, Cystic Fibrosis, Demyelinating Disease, Dermatomyositis
Diabetes, Dialysis, Esophageal Varicosities, Friedreich’s Ataxia, Hepatitis (Type B, C or Chronic), Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Myasthenia Gravis, Obesity, Organ transplants, Pregnancy, Paraplegia, Parkinson’s Disease, Polycythemia Vera, Psoriatic Arthritis, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Renal Failure, Sarcoidosis, Scleroderma, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Tuberculosis”
Do you or any of your loved ones have any of these health conditions? You will be charged more, treated like a health criminal, and may never get the health treatment you need to stay alive and to be able to pursue a life of happiness until your natural departure. To limit healthcare by financial cost is a “DEATH PANEL” in itself, and if anyone can argue that any of the above conditions deserve to die just because, then they are truly not an American Patriot, nor do they carry the internal fortitude of love and protectionist attitude of the majority of Americans. Where are the women of the GOP on the Senate committee for Healthcare? Not one American female Senator was chosen, but over 50% of America is made up of women. America can see this as an evil transgression into pushing through a most hateful healthcare plan.
The truly sad report is that the GOP is also complicit in this murderous nightmare. They may say they’re Pro-life, but look at what they really do, they create a nightmare called the AHCA. This is not only death to the unborn, but also to murdering those that they may not agree with. What is next for America, the Russian style poisoning and killing of those against the President and the “state?” Millions of Americans tonight don’t know if GOP “health” bill will pass & kill them. Loving, caring Americans hope those who vote for it someday will not face the same anguish.
Life with the passing of this bill has gone from health care to insurance profit business. America has become too greedy to care if they pretend there is nothing wrong with this Trump/Congress hate bill. Defending life doesn’t end upon the exiting of the womb. Life is much bigger than that. Only the GOP wants people who have been born to die as well. The murder that every GOP politician will commit is the signature on the line of Trump’s healthcare bill that takes away protection for Pre-existing conditions.
America is much better than this hate-filled, poorly thought out plan to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA. It is hatred that runs the political deeds of the GOP in Washington, and not for the betterment of America. The signature by any politician to this bill is giving carte Blanc to every insurance company to either increase rates to unattainable numbers or complete declining of simple ailments and health conditions, from Pregnancy to liver failure, and from Alzheimer’s to cancer. Every American knows at least one person who has one of those ignored ailments and will feel the pain soon enough as the Trump monetarily controlled death squad takes charge.
