Dear Resistance: It Is Time To Man The Phones, Call The US Senators About The AHCA Bill

Senator Mitch McConnell, who criticized Democrats for working on ACA (Obamacare) behind closed doors, has been working for several weeks on a bill to “repeal and replace” ACA … behind closed doors. A bit of hypocrisy? The bill is designed to repeal ACA, which has a solid foundation but needs some additional work. But the kicker is the ‘replace’ part … the replacement would rob many of the health insurance they currently have. Mitch and his goons are determined to try to ram the bill through prior to the July 4th break with little or no discussion, and likely without an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The bill does NOTHING to serve We The People, but is instead geared toward the wealth. Blogger and friend Gronda is, as always, on top of this and I am sharing her post because she provides valuable information regarding how We The People can … and MUST … make our voices heard by our elected senators. Please take a few minutes today, not only to read this excellent information, but to reach out to your senators and let them know how you feel about their underhanded tactics and about this abominable “health care” bill. Thank you Gronda for your hard work and the information you provide us all!

By now, most of us, as part of the resistance have heard that for almost two months, 13 republican senators (no women or Black members welcomed) have been working on a SECRET health care bill, based mostly on the AHCA Bill passed by the US House of Representatives and which only 17% of the public favored. Even their fellow republican senate colleagues would have you believe that they are also in the dark about the contents of this bill.

    • The AMA and AARP were also against the House bill, but they didn’t listen then, either. They have their own agenda and it does not allow them to listen to reasoned voices, apparently.

  1. Jill, I think four key themes are important:
    – this issue is too important and complex to be done in secret; it requires deliberate thought with factual information.
    – the ACA is working reasonably well but needs improvements.
    – it is disappointing that the ACA has been sabotaged by holding back promised payments to insurers that caused even higher premiums.
    – this bill will lead to the loss of coverage for millions of Americans.

    These are the opinions of a retired actuary, benefits consultant and benefits manager. Keith
