The GOP Graham-Casidy Bill to repeal Obamacare is gaining support. The Republicans will try to pass it before the 9/30/17 deadline.
It is much worse than previous bills. It would eliminate ACA subsidies, and individual and employer mandates. It would allow insurance companies to discriminate based on preexisting conditions, create per capita block grants for Medicaid funding to states (marked cuts in 2027), freeze Planned Parenthood funding for a year, and change the Essential Health Benefits.
This bill will affect each and every one of us.
