TRUMPCARE is a GREAT “IDEA” For…

Posted on 06 May 2017 by mdepeine

  • The rich – They receive lots of tax breaks; close to $800 billion in the next 10 years. (http://www.npr.org/2017/05/04/526923181/gop-health-care-bill-would-cut-about-765-billion-in-taxes-over-10-years?utm_source=npr_newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=20170504&utm_campaign=breakingnews&utm_term=nprnews)
  • Those who prioritize money over people – Most of us want more money in our pockets, but It should not lead to worst health conditions for “faceless” and countless Americans, or even death of those Americans!
  • The avaricious or greedy politician – The plan protects their big business donors and special interest groups who spend a lot of money for election campaign ads, but does nothing to protect the vulnerable members of our society.
  • Big businesses – TRUMPCARE reduces the insurance companies’ burden of dealing with pre-existing conditions like:  cancer, diabetes, arthritis, etc..  These companies would now be able to charge more for any pre-existing condition.
  • Americans who don’t like to help other Americans – These Americans believe they fended for themselves and got success without “handouts” and others should do the same, no matter how unfortunate or oppressed they are.
  • Minimally engaged “Christians” – They don’t believe in “lifting a finger” to help the less fortunate members of society, unless it has to do with food and shelter. Instead of intervening on behalf of the less fortunate, they believe that God has to do ALL the direct interventions while they just sit and watch, or just wait for favorable outcomes. Yet, Jesus says, Christians are “the light of the world” and “the salt of the earth” (see Matthew 5:13-16, see also Isaiah 58).  Christians who are able, should OPENLY SPEAK against destructive and unfair policies and suggest better ones. – shed “light” on issues.
  • Those who overlook the elderly –  A modern society should take care of its weakest members and not raise their insurance premiums by thousands per year when they are living on a fixed income.
  • Anti-Obama Republicans – They couldn’t stand the successes President Obama had, despite their constant obstructionist ways – this-is-their-PAYBACK!
  • White supremacist- The plan hurts a lot of people of color and the poor.  It removes major legislation spearheaded and implemented by The United State’s first black President.
  • Trump – He gets to BOAST that he repealed The ACA – Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

In the end, TRUMPCARE, is short on care and BIG on TRUMP.  We must demand better!

Suggestion: Don’t replace the ACA with a weak and heartless Trumpcare. Instead,make the ACA more efficient and more cost effective.

If you disagree with TrumpCARE, contact your current senators.  Every state has two senators, making a total of 100 senators in the US Senate.  Let your senators know that you will not vote for them and may make every effort to make sure they do not get reelected to the senate if they vote “yes” to TrumpCARE.
