Trump is right: There is no such thing as Obamacare anymore. And Trumpcare costs are soaring.

On October 16th, Donald Trump declared Obamacare dead. “Obamacare is finished,” he proclaimed. “It’s dead. It’s gone. You shouldn’t even mention it. It’s gone. There is no such thing as Obamacare anymore.” And he’s basically right: The Affordable Care Act as it was passed and originally implemented is a thing of the past. It didn’t take the passage of a […]

The Trump administration is no longer trying to hide its blatant & shameless sabotage of the Affordable Care Act

It’s no secret that Donald Trump and his administration have been playing politics with the Affordable Care Act, trying to kill it by the death by a thousand cuts: They won’t commit to the cost sharing reductions to help stabilize the markets, forcing many if not most insurers to raise their premiums. They decreased the budget for healthcare “navigators” who […]

‘Single-payer healthcare is achievable’ says Cathy Myers, who wants Paul Ryan’s Congressional seat

The Democrat is undaunted about the prospects of going toe-to-toe with Speaker Ryan — and providing healthcare to all Americans. Cathy Myers literally lives across the street from Rep.

Use personal stories to remind Republicans of the devastating cost of their healthcare bill

Use personal stories to remind Republicans of the devastating cost of their healthcare bill

Fems for Change is using stories to make sure their elected officials understand that the Republican healthcare bill is life-or-death legislation. You can do the same. By all accounts, Republicans just don’t care. They don’t care that their healthcare legislation will leave 22 million Americans without health insurance. They don’t care that people will die. They don’t even seem to […]

Why Are the Media Ignoring Stories about the Millions Impacted by Trumpcare?

Punishing people with pre-existing conditions is a national disgrace

Punishing people with pre-existing conditions is a national disgrace

House Republicans continue to show their true, cruel colors with the latest amendment to their bill to gut Obamacare. [NOTE: This post was written when the House was debating the AHCA, but it remains true about every Republican attempt to repeal the ACA.] I’m sick of being a pawn in the Republican game of repeal and replace. I’m sick of […]
