A warning about Health Care

Obama Care is better than nothing!

For the poor I need to advise about the getting rid of Obama Care
and Medicaid going into a block grant. This will effect the poor
badly the main point is all the uninsured and ending Medicaid expansion.
If Trump goes back to a Healthcare system like what was before
ObamaCare it was the point around 45.7 million uninsured and
without setting a mandate to have insurance and the lack of subsidies
to help people afford their healthcare they will drop their insurance for a bigger
paycheck and drop because they just can't afford anything at all.

"From the moment President Obama and the Democrats began pushing for healthcare
reform, they repeatedly emphasized the notion that approximately 45.7
million Americans—roughly 15% of the country's population—lacked insurance."

"The implication was that the existing system, based on private insurance companies,
was failing, and that the government could do a much better job of regulating and
administering healthcare."

Now put that number back by getting rid of Obama Care like it didn't happen.
But reset to a more unstable time with more people not being able to afford their
insurance. 45.7 million is more pointed 60, 70 or 150 million.
"private insurance companies, was failing" with 45 million? What is a 60 million do!

Also keep in mind there are 180 million working class people with insurance.
And the point many will do drop their insurance for a bigger paycheck.
well 80 million out of 180 million that is real that is the main threat!
Why have it if I cant get my medicine and pay the cost of insurance.
Have insurance but can't afford to use it. Can't pay the bill, afford the medicines.
The most will be from people dropping insurance for more food money.

Looking at the wealth inequality it's a clear sign of a need for higher pay and
being they make the same pay year after year the only way is to drop their
insurance. How would you like to get $190+ more a pay check? They will drop!

There is around 130 million people with preexisting conditions, out of them
50 million would be effected really.

Relating about the tax cuts and the unknown about the minimum wage,
and known that Republicans do fight any wage growth.
So it's about the lack of money to pay for healthcare!

Insurance companies, was failing at 45.7 million. Look at the forecast of uninsured.
My view there will be 60, 70 or 150+ million uninsured!

It's about being a victim of stupid people! I am saying there will no health care
affordable and all after the uninsured taking the insurance companies down.
Also investors seeing a flood of uninsured not getting their medicines.
They will pull their stocks out being the lack of stable in investors with Trump
over healthcare.

This will lead in more lawsuits as the workers that got hurt at work have no insurance
companies for unemployment insurance. Also with no hospitals due to no insurance
healthcare more in small towns will not exist so time would be needed for the workers
to self heal. And in all of that they would sue for their income as they are recovering.
Or the work places would have to offer unlimited sick time to resolve the issue!
Anyway you see it the workers would be a liability making less jobs out there!

~~~~~If Trump Wins, a Sickening Number of People Are Going to Lose Their Health Insurance
As he reminded us this week, Donald Trump fully intends to repeal Obamacare if he wins the presidency. The man does not, however, have much of a plan to replace it. The scheme he has outlined is so utterly insubstantial that, depending on which think tank you ask, it would likely leave anywhere from about 15 million to 21 million fewer Americans without health insurance than there would be with the Affordable Care Act intact.

And yet, even those grisly numbers don't completely capture the human wreckage the GOP's current health policy proposals would leave behind. That's because, aside from erasing Obamacare from the statute books, Trump has said he would overhaul Medicaid by turning it into a block grant, likely resulting in massive cuts to the government's insurance program for the poor. This detail of his agenda has gone largely unremarked upon by major media outlets, perhaps because it's a long-standing and slightly technical goal that conventional conservatives have wanted for decades. But in terms of the number of Americans it would leave without health coverage, over time the move could be similarly momentous to killing the ACA.
In practice, block grants are designed to cap and shrink the size of federal programs. Instead of helping to cover the cost of every new Medicaid enrollee, as it does today, Washington would send each state a limited sum of cash to spend on the program each year. Once the funding ran out, states would either have to use more of their own tax dollars, or—more likely—stop signing up new beneficiaries. Congress would probably set the grants to grow slower than needed to keep up with the country's combination of rising health care costs and population growth, meaning that over time, the government would spend less than under the current program, and insure fewer Americans.

Republicans have been itching to transform Medicaid into a block grant ever since they failed to during the ’90s battle over welfare reform. Recent proposals from Congress would end up cutting hundreds of billions of dollars from the program over a decade, likely leaving vast numbers of Americans uninsured. In 2012, the Kaiser Family Foundation estimated that a plan that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan put forward would have eventually reduced Medicaid enrollment by 14.3 million to 20.5 million within 10 years, depending on how well states could keep the program's costs in check. Those figures don't include the people who would lose their health coverage if Obamacare's Medicaid expansion were eliminated.
