Who could lose from state health benefit limits

Here’s another daily reminder to CALL YOUR Senators about Healthcare:

Tell your Republican Senators to vote against the bill.
Tell your Democratic Senators to withhold consent on all Senate business until Republicans agree to hold a public hearing on TrumpCare.

If you think this won’t affect you because you have a job and healthcare — your healthcare and life may still be put in danger by Republican Senators to deliver a tax cut to the rich. Here’s why:

“Why it could happen: The Affordable Care Act bans lifetime and annual limits, but only for the 10 categories of “essential health benefits” defined in the law. If a state decides that, say, prescription drugs or maternity care aren’t essential benefits anymore, insurers can bring back annual and lifetime limits for them.

“Why it could spread beyond those states: Large employers that operate in several states can choose which state they want to use as the basis for their benefits. So if an employer operates in 15 states, and one of them has a waiver from ACA benefit rules, it can set all of its benefits based on that state.”

G.O.P. Senators Might Not Realize It, but Not One State Supports the A.H.C.A.

This is why they’re trying to keep the bill secret. They know how deeply unpopular it is to take healthcare away from us is (who would have guessed?) and they think they can get away with doing it without you noticing. That is why it is SO important for us to call every day.

Tell your Republican Senators to vote against the AHCA and tell your Democratic Senators to withhold consent on all Senate business until Republicans agree to hold a public hearing on TrumpCare.

The Hill

This is really scary. Indivisible Guide’s note: “This is happening and this should scare us all. Restrictions in access like this are detrimental to our democracy and our right to know what’s happening in Congress (while the Senate is drafting a bill to take away healthcare from millions and holding hearings on Russia’s influence on our elections and the Trump administration). This decision was made unilaterally by the chairman of the Rules committee (looking at you Senator Richard Shelby) and must be stopped.”

Stop TrumpCare in June: Action Plan – Indivisible Guide

This is your daily reminder that we need to call our Senators everyday to save healthcare access, to save lives. This is coming FAST, and Republicans have sent their bill to the CBO to be scored before Democrats — or the public — even get a chance to see it. Likely somewhere between 14 and 24 million will lose their healthcare and all of us will be affected.

Obamacare is in real danger

Do you have a Republican Senator? You need to call them and call their legislative assistant in charge of health NOW, and every day until ACA repeal comes up for a vote (directory in the comments). They’re getting consensus, they’re working in secret, and they’ve got their 50+VP Pence. Word is that calls to the Senate are back to pre-Trump normal levels. We can’t let them get away with this.

Senate Democrats on Twitter

They’re going to ram through the AHCA without a hearing. Without even letting Democrats see it. Watch this video.

If you have a Republican Senator, you need to be calling them right now.
