The Overlooked Trumpcare Threat: It’s a Medicare Time Bomb

The Overlooked Trumpcare Threat: It’s a Medicare Time Bomb

The broken promise on Medicare is in danger of slipping by beneath the radar. Only days after the election, Speaker Paul Ryan announced that he saw an opportunity to realize his decades-long dream of destroying Medicare. He said that he planned to enact legislation as soon as possible that would end Medicare’s guaranteed benefit and replace it with voucher coupons. Ryan justified this horrible plan — destined to leave the nation’s seniors without medical care after a lifetime of work — by claiming “because of Obamacare, Medicare is going broke.” Nothing could be further from the truth. The Affordable Care Act improved Medicare’s long-term finances, by requiring the wealthiest Americans to pay somewhat more. Trumpcare repeals that increased funding.

Trump’s War on the Truth Tellers

Last week, White House press secretary Sean Spicer warned that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office couldn’t be trusted to come up with accurate numbers about the costs and coverage of the Republicans’ replacement for the Affordable Care Act.

The White House is worried about what the CBO will say about Trumpcare, so it throws the CBO under the bus before the bus arrives.

The American Health Care Act Is a Wealth Grab, Not a Health Plan

The AHCA is not a “health” plan. It’s a wealth grab for the already wealthy and will increase wealth inequality. Its benefits will go, first and foremost, to billionaires who make more money from investments than from work. The 400 highest-earning households in the country will get an average tax break of $7 million per year under the Republican plan.

GOP Plan Targets Poor, Sick, Elderly While Providing Tax Cuts for Wealthy

The Affordable Healthcare Act (AHCA), unveiled by House Republicans Monday night, dismantles major provisions of the ACA, or Obamacare, and puts in place a system of age-based tax credits for individuals to buy insurance. It includes tax breaks for wealthy insurance CEOs; and is generally “a nastier, more consumer-unfriendly proposal than even close followers could have expected.” Under this bill, the average American will be more likely to be uninsured, or insured with higher co-pays and deductibles, or “covered” with a plan worth as much as the plastic insurance card it’s issued on.
