.@michaelcburgess: What good is health insurance if you are afraid to use it b/c you can't afford the deductible.
This is the issue I would like to see us tackle.

My thread on WHY @narendramodi ji's @AyushmanNHA (आयुष्मान भारत-प्रधान मंत्री जन आरोग्य योजना) is MY personal reason for #ModiOnceMore
Y'all know that @AyushmanNHA provides Family Floating Coverage of ₹5 Lakhs per family and that its the world's largest #PublicHealth Insurance scheme . What then is the USP of this scheme? Here are a few:
1. It subsumes two earlier schemes, Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana, and Senior citizen health Insurance Scheme, along with a few others.
Benefit: CLARITY in END-POINT DELIVERY! No more confusion as to whether you're eligible.

I am proud of our Virginia Attorney General @MarkHerringVA for joining in an 18-state effort to safeguard access to healthcare following the deplorable December 14 decision to invalidate the ACA.

ideastations.org/radio/news/her…
The merits of that decision will eventually percolate through the court system, but more troubling is that *no one knows* for sure what effect it has on existing enrollment. And it came out mere hours before the open enrollment period ended.
This is unacceptable. There is a right to be healthy, and government attempts to shirk that obligation are both shameful and misguided. Adding mass confusion to the exercise of people's rights to access that healthcare is even more noxious.

A federal judge ruled the #AffordableCareAct--also known as #ACA & #Obamacare--unconstitutional because #GOPTaxBill removed the mandate.
I've written about ACA since it was devised in 2009 & signed in 2010. Here is a thread📌on what the law does & how it impacts you:
1/
Many Americans are confused about what the #ACA is--and this includes Trump and his #HHS Sect #AlexAzar. A vast array of complex #healthcare statutes are covered under the #AffordableCareAct (also known as #ACA & #Obamacare). So here's a primer to inform you on all points.
2/
The #AffordableCareAct is the comprehensive health care reform law enacted in March 2010 (sometimes known as #ACA or #Obamacare). The #ACA is NOT insurance. It is a LAW that stipulates, in part, what insurance companies provide in their #healthcare plans.

A thread on why ObamaCare is unconstitutional!

Some people have ZERO idea how genius Trump is.

The Master of the Kansas City Shuffle: look over here and then BOOM, you never saw it coming

Obama care being called unconstitutional was also a master stroke of genius.

#QAnon
Because of the financial penalty contained in Obamacare the Supreme Court called the law constitutional in 2012 because it fell under congresses powers of "taxes."

But Chess Master GEOTUS convinced Congress to lower the penalty for not having Obamacare to 0$.

#QAnon #ObamaCare
Then BOOM a coalition of 20 republican attorney generals and governors file a case against ACA based on the fact that there is no longer a financial penalty contained within, the law is no longer within Congress's tax powers.

The judge agrees.

#Obamacare ruled unconstitutional by a Texas district judge.
reuters.com/article/us-usa…
Eliminating the penalty for not having health insurance last year, now seen an invalidating the entirety of #Obamacare.
"In some ways, the question before the Court involves the intent of both the 2010 and 2017 Congresses. The former enacted the ACA. The latter sawed off the last leg it stood on."

Thread. The new rule, I guess, is that we cannot have one Friday evening before Christmas in peace. So @patrickdmarley links to explainers by @goldsteinamy & others of a Texas federal judge’s decision that the Constitution does not permit Obamacare.
Follow @ASlavitt, who is walking through what Texas v. US will mean in practice on this thread. Also @nicholas_bagley

🚨🚨 Texas Federal District Court Judge Reed O'Connor has just struck down the Affordable Care Act 🚨🚨

holy shit
The court didn't just strike down the individual mandate, but found that the ::ENTIRE REST OF THE ACA:: requires the individual mandate to function (i.e. they can't be severed) and SO STRUCK DOWN THE ENTIRE ACA
Please listen carefully because I'm an expert in the thing I'm about to say: ACA #OPENENROLLMENT ENDS TOMORROW. IF YOU WERE PLANNING ON ENROLLING IN AN #OBAMACARE PLAN, YOU SHOULD STILL DO SO‼️‼️‼️

we must get this message out.

While you're focused on a holiday surprise from #Mueller, the president of the United States and his lame duck Speaker have officially been working toward eviscerating the #ACA before #NancyPelosi steps in to save everyone's #healthcare.

Please call your reps & tell them NO.

I'm seriously ill--17M of us have #cancer; 131M have other chronic illnesses. This concerns me & you & people you love.
Like everything else, it's underhanded and under-the-radar.

New insurance guidelines would undermine rules of the #AffordableCareAct

"The Trump administration is urging states to tear down pillars of #AffordableCareAct, demolishing a basic rule that federal insurance subsidies can be used only by people buying health plans in marketplaces created under the law."

They want to take the #healthcare you need.

I tweet about the #OpioidEpidemic fairly frequently but I guess not enough. I'm going to do a thread, in no particular order, on some facts. Much mis-information is out there. And I watched a townhall from Liberty University yesterday where the same misinformation was spewed.
Basically, where we are at is this, legit pain patients cannot get an RX and the RX's are down yet O.D.s are up. The following pieces will help explain why. And all are well sourced. So here goes. Starting with a big problem. The data is wrong. Also, govt can't fix this.

Nine years since it's passage, many Americans remain confused about #ACA, also known as #Obamacare.

The ACA is NOT insurance. It is a law mandating insurance company provisions. It covers EVERY American who has health insurance of any kind, individually or via their employer.
The #ACA requires all insurance providers cover #PreExistingConditions; requires women be covered for all services and not be charged more than men; that all insurers provide low-cost policies so that everyone have access to a plan.

This is what #ACA does.
It is NOT insurance.
The Obama administration set up healthcare.gov, with insurance navigators to help people choose the best and most affordable plans through health insurers in their areas.

The government also offers tax credit subsidies for health insurance based on income.

Lies.
The column--WHICH TRUMP DID NOT WRITE--included many lies.
Trump has done everything possible--with the help of @SpeakerRyan and @senatemajldr McConnell--to eviscerate #ACA and steal affordable #healthcare from millions of Americans, including sick children.
Trump ran on overturning #Obamacare--which millions of his supporters did not realize was #ACA that allowed them to get affordable #healthcare through their insurance provider and protected them and their kids who had #PreExistingConditions.
Trump tried to repeal #ACA but failed.
So he stopped making payments to statewide subsidy programs, cutting off #healthcare to millions.
He also cut #CHIP, created by #HillaryClinton, which provided millions of kids with health insurance.

I hear the umps are threatening to boycott Serena’s matches. 1st, boycotts can both ways. So be warned. 2nd, don’t be distracted by this attempt to villainize a Black woman as hurting the game. The sexism & racism of the umps is hurting the game.
If women’s tennis wants to risk its ticket sales and tv ratings by effing with Serena, I invite them to try. But they should be clear that those actions are the textbook definition of structural sexism and racism.
This is how you know it’s racism — these folks are potentially willing to hurt their own bottom line to get a Black Woman in line. Anytime folks will hurt their own pocketbooks to reinforce some hierarchical social order (see #Obamacare), it’s racism!

It is tough to top 1976 from a purely political journalism standpoint, but ‘08 and ‘16 are closest. @mattklewis and you —@mkhammer and even @MedillSchool finest new grad @guypbenson and others too in the Northern Alliance of Blogs like @powerlineUS @lileks @edmorrissey made it
a terrific time 2 b reporting. The fall campaign, enlivened by @SenJohnMcCainand his team’s choice of @SarahPalinUSA as VP nominee —which can be argued to have set off the Tea Parties and eventually brought the populism tang brought nomination to @realDonaldTrump—was catastrophic
And in its collapse in the headwinds of the financial panic, brought supermajorities of Ds along w/ @BarackObama to D.C., there to enact #Obamacare and trigger not just the waves of 2010 and 2014, but also the @realDonaldTrump era. It’s rooted in that 2008 campaign. Now, if only

Let me give you a #TruthSummary for every corporate media story for the last week and for the next 2 weeks bar some new unforseen crisis:
1. There are no such thing as #TrumpTariffs
Art 1 sec 2 cl 3 delegates that power to Congress
Trump Tariffs are a fiction created by illegal legislation and false policies
Media, pundits, & politicians need to shut up about Trump Tariffs & start talkg about #CongressionalTariffs
2. #Kavanaugh will not be the "death of womens rights" no matter what @SenFeinstein says. Kavanaugh will not be king and for goodness sakes, supports #Obamacare!!

#Obama #Brennan began spying on #Arpaio #Trump B4 2012 election when #ForgedDocsInvestigation began
1. When @RealSheriffJoe #Arpaio started #ColdCasePosse 2 investigate #Obama #ForgedDocs, #Brennan made deal w/ Obama. He spied on @realDonaldTrump & #Arpaio if Obama would make him #CIADir. That digital spy data still exist. That is what Brennan knows #Mueller has 4 #PerjuryTrap.
2. #Brennan & #Obama used illegal surveillance data 2 create #ParallelCaseConstruction against @realSheriffJoe #Arpaio & that is how they prosecuted him.

#Breaking BADABOUM puissance MILLE #Flynn l'ancien conseiller sécurité nationale de #Trump est inculpé pour parjure devant le FBI et mis en garde à vue par #Mueller. RT+1
2) Les informations sont encore parcellaires: #Flynn est incriminé pour des fausses déclarations répétées au #FBI quant à ses relations avec la #Russie, on est donc au coeur de l'enquête #Mueller sur #Trump et pas en périphérie...
3) #Flynn aurait menti délibérément et consciemment en particulier sur ses entretiens avec l'ambassadeur de #Russie Kislyak. On peut penser au RDV avec Kushner le 1er décembre 2016 et aux coups de fil sur les sanctions le 29 décembre 2016. #Trump
