Case Against the American Health Care Act (AHCA)

27% of all adults would be denied insurance due a "pre-existing" condition according to the Republican proposal.

Bill proponents, such as  Mr. Donald Trump and House Leader Paul Ryan would have you believe these conditions are limited to only major conditions. This is not true, any medical condition minor or major would allow insurance companies to deny your coverage. This includes a minor allergy, previous sports related injuries, or surviving cancer. The Trump administration put little work into drafting the legislation that reorganizes 1/6 of the American economy.

The average penalty under Obama care for not having health insurance was $600.00, under the AHA the penalty increases to approximately $2,000 per American if your insurance laps. This is in fact a more expensive mandate to than seen with Obama care.

Placing persons into high risk pools who have serious medical conditions would make their premiums unaffordable.

It is a fact Congress wrote into the bill exception for themselves and their staff. They would be covered under a different system.

Obama care currently is better choice for American citizens when compared to the current Trump care proposal. This is my call demanding a better way.
