There is a lot going on but one thing that terrifies me the most is what @realDonaldTrump & the @GOP are doing to our healthcare.

There was a vote today to try and 🛑 the sale of #JunkInsurance

Democrats, the minority party, lost. Not w/out a fight!…
Do you know what is NOT covered in the junk plans?
coverage for maternity care, prescription drugs, emergency services, mental health services, preventive care (including contraceptives), and hospitalization.
Know who can’t get #JunkInsurance
these plans often don’t cover pre-existing conditions, sick people often can’t qualify for coverage & healthy ppl would have cheaper ins plans w/little to no basic coverage-sounds great, healthy people can get cheap coverage that covers nothing?
BTW, if your 🤔, Trump promised me great ins, better, cheaper ins. Let me just tell you how trump feels about #JunkInsurance

Before the vote, President Trump issued his first-ever veto threat over the joint resolution to over turn the rule.

In other words, he ❤️junk insurance
🤔How do R’s feel about #JunkInsurance
71 % of the R’s backed
plans that do not cover outpatient pre drugs, plans that don’t cover substance abuse, 0 of the plans cover maternity care. One R asked why men should pay for plans that inc prenatal cvg & maternity care.
Is you have to ask? 🤔 Why does @realDonaldTrump & the @GOP want #JunkInsurance!
Do they just want us all to die?

NO (maybe?)

Folks, in comes politics.

Let’s talk costs of healthcare and how the Republicans are TERRIFIED for you to find out why!…
Promises Made Promises Kept?

You see folks, in order to give you that big beautiful healthcare and try to convince you that he saved you on your premiums - @realDonaldTrump & the @GOP have to offer #JunkPlans…
So what exactly have they done to sabotage your healthcare & your premiums?
Let me count the ways!
The Trump administration’s decision to stop paying insurance companies for cost-sharing reductions furnished to low- and moderate-income consumers

Keep in mind administration=Republicans as we continue👍
Insurers’ ongoing & continuing uncertainties about changes to the ground rules governing the indiv market
Insurers’ uncertainties about enforcement of individual mandate penalties for consumers
The federal tax law’s complete elimination of all such enforcement, starting in 2019
And here it is folks- the kicker!


The Trump admin proposed regulations permitting the sale of largely unregulated short-term, limited duration ins & association health plans.

This 👆🏽 is what the Democratic Party attempted to 🛑 today. 😫
Dem Sen. Tammy Baldwin failed in her bid Wed to block a Trump admin rule to expand short-term health insurance plans that critics say could deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.

The bid failed by a vote of 50-50 (needed a simple majority)
Sen Susan Collins (Don’t pretend this excuses her) 2 Ind & 47 D voted in favor of killing #JunkPlans,50 Republicans voted in favor of killing your premiums, your pre-existing coverage, your prescription coverage, your pre-natal coverage, your hospital coverage and maternity care!
NOW LISTEN CLOSELY- gather round, take notes!

How do they think this is a win?

Ppl will get cheaper premiums, but by the time they realize they aren’t covered- too late! AND YOU ALREADY FELL FOR IT AND VOTED FOR THEM (Republicans)
Last but most importantly -


PS: thank you @exoticgamora for the meme!
