Sabotaging health care
The Trump administration, aided by a Republican Congress, is doing all they can to sabotage the Affordable Health Care Act aka “Obamacare.” The worst damage is creating “uncertainty” for health insurance companies. For all insurance coverages, “uncertainty” equals higher risk, higher risk is synonymous with higher premiums.
Other dirty tricks are: 1. Major budget cuts for navigating and implementing the 2018 marketplace, which will make all those good things we all like, fail.
2. Sept. 30 Congress did not reauthorize Childrens Health Insurance Program.
3. By fiat, Trump reversed policy which will now allow the employers to deny some birth control methods, including intrauterine devices, essentially declaring employer’s religious values more important than the employee’s.
