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.

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.

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.

On Democrats’ latest bogus health care claim that Republicans want to take away health insurance protections for people with #PreExistingConditions:
In '96, Republicans controlled the House & Senate & passed the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act, ultimately signed into law. It “strictly limit[ed] the ability of insurance companies to deny coverage to Americans with preexisting conditions," per @WashingtonPost.
Way back in 2009, Republicans proposed a health care plan “to guarantee all Americans, regardless of pre-existing conditions or past illnesses, have access to affordable coverage.”

#PreExistingConditions Are your parents forgetful⁉️ Changes in the brain that lead to Alzheimer’s disease may begin years, or even a decade, before a person has symptoms. Under @GOP plan your parents are #NotCovered
💥Does your wife have a history of breast cancer in her family⁉️If she has her yearly mammogram and the Dr discovers a lump, she’s #NotCovered. Newly approved cancer drugs cost $10K -30K per month. Your wife will die unless you can pay out of pocket💥 #PreExistingConditions
😳Your son is 18 and no longer on your insurance plan. He’s now on his work plan. He is in a car accident and during surgery the Dr discovers stomach cancer w complications that are #PreExistingConditions They save him and remove the tumor but he owes $85K and he’s #NotCovered

BREAKING: New @OversightDems report shows how Californians could be impacted by the Trump Administration’s unwillingness to defend people with pre-existing conditions.

SPOILER ALERT: It’s terrible news for A LOT of Californians. More on the report here: bit.ly/2ynhL4v.
In California, if the Trump Administration is successful in its attempts to roll back Affordable Care Act protections, as many as 1,321,000 people could lose federal protections against coverage denials or premium increases, including as many as 78,000 people in #CA33 alone.
If President Trump and Republicans succeed in rolling back pre-existing condition protections, 50,000 #CA33 constituents with pre-existing health conditions are at risk of coverage loss or premium increases. #ProtectOurCare

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.

Wanted to share a little about the lawsuit that AG Hawley filed that would eliminate protections for preexisting conditions for millions of Americans, including kids like ours. Feel free to follow along. 1/
Here's the first page of the lawsuit seeking to declare our health care protections unconstitutional. AG Hawley didn't have to join this lawsuit, but he chose to, on behalf of his state. 2/
Here's the part that says the #ACA protects #PreExistingConditions, makes sure people can't be charged more for them, and requires that insurers cover essential health benefits.

That's the part that keeps our kids alive and our families out of bankruptcy. 3/

🔥Most effective line of attack Dems have against GOP candidates for governor/House/Senate in the 20 states below?🔥

...they're all part of a lawsuit that allows insurance companies to STOP covering constituents w/preexisting medical conditions.

To them, GOP says "DIE mad."
States SPECIFICALLY ASKED Judge Reed O’Connor to strike down parts of the law that prohibit health insurance companies from refusing to cover people w/ pre-existing health conditions.

WE MUST SHOW (R) VOTERS THE GOP DOESN'T CARE IF THEY DIE OR GO BROKE.
usat.ly/2x8S1qX
GOP voters must be made to understand that their leaders (including GOP candidates) are so determined to dismantle Obamacare they are perfectly willing to WATCH THEIR VOTERS DIE and/or lose every single penny the voters worked so hard for. politi.co/2kUc0UE

Feb. 2018, 18 @GOP AG's & 2 GOP Governors Filed a Lawsuit to Repeal the #ACA in the U.S. Northern District of TX

This lawsuit is currently being heard. This is what it means to YOUR healthcare if Kavanaugh is confirmed. #ProtectOurCare #WhatsAtStake (THREAD)1/15
These are the Republican state attorneys general and governors from 20 states that filed the lawsuit in February 2018 in the U.S. Northern District of Texas.

#ProtectOurCare #WhatsAtStake 2/15
In June of 2018, the Trump Administration said it would not defend the #ACA and actually AGREED in part with the plaintiffs, arguing that protections for people with #PreExistingConditions should be overturned.

Friends, today's developments with regard to our health care made crystal clear #WhatsAtStake, the need to #StopKavanaugh, and the need to be a #HealthCareVoter this November.

Here's a quick explainer thread on what happened, and where we go from here. (1/)
In Texas today, a judge heard arguments on the lawsuit brought by several GOP State AGs and the Trump Administration to declare the #ACA, including #PreExistingConditions protections, unconstitutional. That judge seemed prepared to do just that. (2/)

modernhealthcare.com/article/201809…
If that one judge rules to strike down #PreExistingConditions protections, millions of Americans - including those of us with medically complex kids - would be at risk of losing health care.

Such a decision would be appealed, and could ultimately land at the Supreme Court. (3/)

⚠️ GRAPHICS-HEAVY THREAD: Next week, the #TexasFoldEm lawsuit brought by 20 Republican Attorneys General against the #ACA goes to court. The Trump Administration is refusing to defend against it even though it EVERY legal expert says it’s a pile of steaming garbage. 1/
2/ If the #TexasFoldEm plaintiffs succeed, federal protections for those w/#PreExistingConditions would be gone. Not just on the individual market…people w/EMPLOYER coverage would be at risk as well, especially since most people are out of a job at least once in their lives.
3/ Here’s a reminder of the idiotic “argument” the #TexasFoldEm plaintiffs are using:
1. SCOTUS ruled the #ACA mandate is only Constitutional because it’s a tax.
2. The GOP repealed the mandate tax.
3. Therefore, they get to repeal the rest of the #ACA as well.
Really. That’s it.

BREAKING. New @ppppolls national survey

By 14pts (56/40), voters want a generic Dem for Congress who supports ACA & wants to improve it over over a generic GOP candidate for Congress who
wants to repeal it.

Lead grows to 19pts (56/37) w/
65+ voters.

protectourcare.org/wp-content/upl…
@ppppolls New @ppppolls continued...

Voters trust Democrats over Republicans and President Trump on health care by 13
points (55/42).

This lead grows to 26 points (60/34) with women and 22 points (57/35) with independents.

protectourcare.org/wp-content/upl…
@ppppolls (cont)

By an overwhelming 25 points (59/34), people want Congress to "keep what works and fix what doesn't" in the ACA, not repeal it.

That margin grows to 32 points (62/30) with independents

Lawsuit argues w/o #ACA individual mandate (repealed in 12/17 #TaxBill) the entire law should be illegal! How? Why? What?

In 2012, Chief Justice John Roberts stopped a 2012 lawsuit to make ACA illegal. Roberts said Congress could not order people to buy insurance....BUT

As expected, Trump has chosen an extremist for the Supreme Court who can & would undermine:

-Healthcare as a right, not a privilege
-Reproductive rights
-Voting rights
-Workers' rights
-Consumer rights
-A safe environment

For a generation. #Scotuspick #KavanaughSCOTUS 1/11
We need to call every one of our Senators. 202-224-3121, or with contactingcongress.org
NOW.

We need to support those who have come out against Kavanaugh & convince those that haven't that #Kavanaugh is the wrong choice. #NOKavanaugh

The following will tell you why. 2/11
A woman's right to choose is in jeopardy. A full repeal may or may not be attempted soon, but Roe v. Wade will be chipped away at.

Pro-choice GOP Sens. Susan Collins & Lisa Murkowski need to be reminded. Collins has been lied to before. #WhatsAtStake

Next week President Trump will announce his second Supreme Court Justice pick.

Think this doesn’t affect your day-to-day life?

Think again.

Here’s #WhatsAtStake and how our lives and our democracy could be negatively impacted for generations to come. #SCOTUS
1. Simply put, the Supreme Court interprets the Constitution, which involves every aspect of our lives—how we conduct ourselves in society and boundaries for individuals and the government. Trump will surely nominate someone who aligns with his alt-right ideology. #WhatsAtStake
2. Women’s health. It’s not just about reproductive freedom!! It’s access to birth control, equal insurance pricing, equal access to care, and protection in the workplace. #WhatsAtStake
