The House of Representatives just voted to pass the GOP's disastrous bill to gut the Affordable Care Act and strip millions of their health coverage. Republicans have been pushing their so-called American Health Care Act through Congress without a score from the Congressional Budget Office because they know the numbers won't add up.
The GOP would have you believe that they are the party of fiscal conservatism, but passing a bill of this magnitude without a full assessment of the cost is anything but.
Our Revolution will always give the American people the facts on health care, and the truth now is that more people will die if the health care repeal bill is signed into law. Chip in $5 to help us fight back against the GOP attack on our health care so that we can win Medicare for All.
We may not have a score from the CBO, but it's not hard to tell how Republicans expect us to pay for this: by burdening the middle class and working Americans with even higher costs than they incur under the Affordable Care Act today. The CBO study of the last Trumpcare bill found that 24 million people would lose their health insurance entirely, with millions more forced to pay more to receive less coverage. It's no wonder the GOP forced through a vote before the CBO could do its job.
Some Republicans thought the last bill didn't go far enough, and it appears that they got their wish. But the truth is that even rank and file Republicans don't want their health insurance taken away and large percentages support Medicare for All.
Health care is the one topic on which we should all agree. Nobody should be at a greater risk of disease, disability, or death because of how much money they make. Donate $5 to Our Revolution and help us fight to win Medicare for All.
We will fix this. With the health care of so many at greater risk today than it was yesterday, your contribution towards Medicare for All is more important now than ever before.
