⚠️⚠️⚠️ THREAD: On the 1-year anniversary of the @HouseGOP passing the #AHCA (to repeal the #ACA), how many Americans would’ve lost their healthcare coverage in YOUR Congressional District?
1/ One year ago today, the @HouseGOP passed the #AHCA, which would have repealed the #ACA and replaced it with a plan which the CBO projected would cause 24 million people to lose healthcare coverage by 2026: cbo.gov/publication/52…
2/ The CBO didn’t break their 24 million projection out by State or Congressional District, but @EmilyG_DC of @amprog worked with @Cutler_econ to do just that. americanprogress.org/issues/healthc…

Sen @BillCassidy called our reading of his health care bill on pre-existing conditions false. Here’s how we read it: n.pr/2fAWevD
Prior to ACA, insurers routinely excluded care for cancer or mental health or made the coverage so expensive that it was out of reach
Current law (ACA) guarantees coverage for 10 “essential health benefits”—in every exchange policy in every state bit.ly/2wGO8qS

#GrahamCassidy health care repeal would be devastating for millions of Americans & we cannot let it pass. Here are a few of the reasons why:
1) It ends Medicaid expansion, which experts have called the #1 tool at our disposal to combat the opioid crisis
2) It caps and cuts Medicaid for seniors and people who experience disabilities – putting community-based care programs at risk

Republicans will try to ram through their health care repeal without knowing how many Americans it will hurt.
By selling junk plans & slashing Medicaid, #GrahamCassidy:

Rips coverage from tens of millions of working families

Health care costs ↑
Eliminates protections for pre-existing conditions

Imposes an age tax on those 50+

Opposed by major medical & patient groups

I oppose #GrahamCassidy bill because RI would lose $625M in health care funding. Will Senators in states facing massive cuts do the same?
Will @lisamurkowski & @SenDanSullivan oppose $255M in cuts for Alaska under #GrahamCassidy bill? cbpp.org/research/healt…
Will @SenJohnMcCain & @JeffFlake oppose $1.6B in cuts for Arizona under #GrahamCassidy bill? cbpp.org/research/healt…

THREAD: A short primer on all the ways the #GrahamCassidyBill is an intellectual and moral garbage truck fire.
1/ #GrahamCassidy eliminates protections for people who are or ever have been sick. GONE. Insurers back to denying coverage for the sick.
2/ Lifetime caps, annual caps, charging older people more - the greatest hits of Trumpcare - all back again in #GrahamCassidy

#GrahamCassidy cuts #Medicaid. 1,750,000 veterans covered by Medicaid. A vote for #GrahamCassidy is a vote to take healthcare from veterans.
Insurance coverage for nonelderly veterans increased after the ACA due in part to Medicaid expansion. #GrahamCassidy
Medicaid expansion led to larger coverage increases for low-income veterans. #GrahamCassidy

1. Whose healthcare suffers under #GrahamCassidy? Our fellow Americans: kids at soccer practice; the babysitter with a transplanted kidney;
2. grocery store workers who keep produce fresh; a teacher aide struggling to get by; nursing home employees comforting elderly or disabled;
3. & 32 million more. They're not "other people." You know someone who will lose care because #GrahamCassidy targets our fellow Americans.

AARP stands ready to work with Congress on commonsense, bipartisan solutions to improve health care.

#GrahamCassidy is not that bill.
#GrahamCassidy has the same flaws as the proposals rejected by AARP, consumer groups, doctors, hospitals, & the public earlier this year.
#GrahamCassidy would price gouge older Americans with an age tax, decrease coverage, and undermine pre-existing condition protections.
