Seven of the worst things in the Senate’s version of Trumpcare

After working for weeks behind closed doors, Senate Republicans this morning released a “working draft” of their Trumpcare bill.

 

Topline Message on Senate Trumpcare:

 

Senate Trumpcare is just as “mean” as the House version, and in some ways it is meaner. This bill would result in many Americans—especially low income and older Americans—paying thousands more in premiums for skimpier health plans. This so-called health care bill is nothing more than a huge tax cut for the wealthiest few, paid for by billions of dollars in cuts to Medicaid, which serves one in five Americans—including two-thirds of seniors in nursing homes—and cuts to Planned Parenthood. Trumpcare still means higher costs for less care for millions of Americans.

 

Seven of the worst things in the Senate’s version of Trumpcare:

1.       Kicks millions off of Medicaid – more “mean” than the House bill.

 

2.      Decimates the tax credit for those in the individual market.

 

3.      Abandons people with pre-existing conditions, especially maternity care and mental health.

 

4.      Defunds Planned Parenthood, eliminating care for women across the country.

 

5.      Gives the wealthiest Americans a massive tax break on day one.

 

6.      Eliminates health care coverage for those with opioid, substance use, and mental health disorders.

 

7.      Forces older Americans to pay more for coverage, strips seniors of critical services.
