How is it POSSIBLE that nearly 10yrs in people still don't know the #ACA and #Obamacare are the same thing and still think ACA/Obamacare is insurance when it isn't?
The only insurance in the US comes from the healthcare industry.
Medicare, Medicaid and ACA only provide subsidies.
If your argument is you want to keep paying extravagant health insurance premiums rather than have the government subsidize your health insurance payment, you are too wealthy. The rest of us need help desperately. Medical bankruptcy is more than half of all bankruptcies.
My health insurance premium is a staggering $1,978.10 per month for an HMO. That is unsustainable. My wife has to work three jobs to help pay for it. If I lived in Canada I'd pay that PER YEAR. In England & France, nothing.
Let's stop lying about healthcare costs & who benefits.

This is your official #DemDebate2 night thread. I am just getting settled here, drinking water only because my liver is still recovering from last night, and I turn on CNN and this dude is preaching to the audience about RAAAAACCCISM! I think he's the head of the DNC. #Hectic
I can already tell I'm going to have to risk gastro upset and head for the liquor cabinet. This is going to be a disaster. #PJMDrunkBlog #DemDebate2
@CNN thinks #KristenG thinks she's being beat up on because she called for #Franken to resign. I think she's a loser because she's connected up to her ears with #NXVIM #DemDebate2 #ChildTrafficking #PJMDrunkBlog

As always this will be Analysis and Commentary coming from myself...
Same rules as last night I am not numbering these tweets that would be a bit too difficult. I will try to keep the ellipsis to a minimum as well.

This is a scheme in which the Obama administration collected less in taxes from health insurers than they were required to do under the Affordable Care Act, created a plan to pay insurers selling policies on the Exchange considerably more than originally projected,
and stiffed the United States Treasury on the money it was supposed to receive from the taxes. This diversion took place in spite of a statute that explicitly prohibited it. The consequence of the diversion of funds was to enrich insurers.

I’ve observed Colorado @SenCoryGardner since his election. What I’ve seen has left me dismayed. Rather than building bipartisan bridges to get things done, Cory became a supine Trump yes-man. There are 1000s reasons he shouldn’t be re-elected. Here are 101: #VoteCoryOut #COsen
#1: Even though he was elected by the narrowest of margins in 2014 in a state that has since voted for Hillary in 2016 & a democratic state govt trifecta in 2018, Cory continues to act as if he has a mandate from the white nationalist alt-right. #VoteCoryOut #cosen
#2: Cory Gardner has consistently voted for the extreme Trump agenda. During the 2019-2020 Congress, he’s voted with Trump over 90% of the time. During Trump’s 1st two years, Cory’s voting record was over 95% in line with Trump. #VoteCoryOut #cosen

The GOP is still determined to end access to #healthcare for millions of Americans like me with #cancer and other life-threatening #PreExistingConditions.

Trump joins #antivaxxers to attack #Obamacare thinkprogress.org/trump-anti-vax… via @thinkprogress
Also, before the #ACA (also known as #Obamacare, which is a law not insurance) became law, women paid twice as much as men for health insurance, pregnancy was a #PreExistingCondition, mammograms and PAP tests were out-of-pocket expenses and 60M Americans were uninsured.
The #ACA has expanded #Medicaid in many states, created the healthcare marketplace which shows people a range of options within their states for affordable healthcare & it has saved millions of lives.
ACA will still be law after #M4A because it's essential healthcare protection.

@Priyanka_Dayal What is confirmed here is that @UHC “put the bottom line above [Kate Weissman] as a patient.” @Priyanka_Dayal, you have helped place health payers on notice. Denials for proton therapy and violations of ERISA will not stand. The status quo is unsustainable and #change is coming.
@Priyanka_Dayal @UHC Very smart person right here 👇🏻
@Priyanka_Dayal @UHC Most painful abt certain aspects of the piece is attempt to provide legitimacy to insurance practices that violate the law & deny millions of valid health claims. Lending credence to hackneyed industry arguments is, to quote a federal judge, “immoral and barbaric.” #protontherapy

Prosecutors didn't even find "one bad sentence" in the "millions of pages" the @WhiteHouse turned over to special counsel, @POTUS, on the phone, tells @seanhannity, calling the investigation an attempted "illegal takeover" of the country.
"I was the most innocent human being," @POTUS tells @seanhannity.
"The end result is no collusion, no obstruction," declares @POTUS.

I am scheduled for my 3rd surgery since December on Thursday.
Please do me a favor and promise to call your reps and senators and tell them you support and need the #ACA/#Obamacare and they only have your vote if they reject Trump's efforts to kill it.
Here's a thread on why:
1/
Many Americans think the #ACA/#Obamacare is insurance.
It is not.
The #ACA is a law governing insurance companies & forcing them to cover women & people with #PreExistingConditions.
The #ACA also says women cannot be forced to pay more than men for insurance.
#ProtectOurCare
2/
The #ACA/#Obamacare also provides for children 26 and under to be covered under their parents' insurance plans.
The ACA also created the healthcare marketplace, which provides tax subsidies for those unable to pay full-price for health insurance.

As with #foreignaffairs policy that the US employs in the #MiddleEast,
#Trump domestic policy is to employ #Native Leaders who can advise him about accessing #Native land under the guise of cutting Commerce Dept regulations which would open up #Reservations to #BigOil Industry.
#Trump has set up a #NativeAmerican Affairs Coalition w/ 27 tribal members to advise him about the needs of Indian Country. The issue that concerns #Trump & the #native group the most is the desire to access the natural energy reserves on #Reservations.

mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/id…
#Native #Reservations consist of 2% of US Territory but could possibly hold 20% of the country’s “oil and gas reserves.” (This makes wind and solar much more attractive considering you wouldn’t have to steal #native land all over again.)

.@RepAnnaEshoo on Trump's short-term "junk" insurance plans:
We know these plans do not cover #preexistingconditions.

.@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.

#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

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.
