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.

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 want to tell a story of what happened to my #ACA plan after Trump took office. I’m not sure if many of you remember when he decided the Government would no longer pay subsidies for the #Obamacare plans, but eventually the Court system told him he couldn’t do that. BUT ...
In the mean time Millions of Americans experienced what I did. Which was a surge in price increases for plans we had locked into place months ago.
My plan more than tripled in price.
Over a one month period.
I received a letter from my insurance company basically saying ...
That because of this Administration and the games they were playing my cost would triple for the remainder of my plan.
Three times the price.
Which for any average working class American is just something we can’t afford. Add on the fact that I’m a single mom working 2+ Jobs ..

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.
Brennan threat2 @realDonaldTrump on Apr27 2 "StayTtuned" is what he knows from that illegal spying that no else should know.

#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

I have worked as an underwriter, provider contractor & actuarial in the healthcare insurance industry for 30 years. Trump's EO is a LIE! /1
Selling policies across state lines will not do a damn thing. Georgia has offered this for 5 years & not 1 insurer has offered a plan. /2
This is because insurance is based on a shared risk pool. This means that people who have high healthcare costs are in the same plan as /3

Removing requirements makes some individual plans cheaper, but will drive up premiums for other plans.

He's doing everything he can to increase premiums, especially for the least able to pay, to force an end to ACA.
