Biggest Flash Points In The Graham-Cassidy Health Care Bill
http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots...-care-bill

From the article:
Quote:f Senate Republicans vote to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act this week, it would affect the health care of pretty much every American.

Here's a recap of four key flash points in the health overhaul debate with links to NPR coverage over the past six months, and our chart laying out how the Graham-Cassidy bill under consideration in the Senate addresses those issues compared with the Affordable Care Act.

Pre-existing conditions. One of the biggest issues in the repeal/replace debate has been coverage for pre-existing conditions, genetic risks and chronic illness. Before the Affordable Care Act, insurers could deny coverage to people with diseases like diabetes or charge them much higher premiums. The ACA requires insurers to cover pre-existing conditions without charging more. The GOP bills passed or proposed would give states the power to waive that requirement. People with disabilities or chronic diseases, people who have had cancer, and parents of children born with health problems like late-night host Jimmy Kimmel say that could make insurance unaffordable.

...

Th irony of the repubs drive to repeal the ACA is that they want to deny everyone of they have, government-sponsored healthcare.

Conservatism (n.), the irrational fear that somewhere someone you think is inferior is being treated as your equal.

In the ten years prior to the Affordable Care Act, roughly 15 million working people lost access to employer-based healthcare coverage. But, between 2010–2015, 19.2 million people have gained coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Let’s not go backwards!
