The Congressional Budget Office has some bad news for Obamacare repealers – Vox

The republican ideas of medical coverage for the less than wealthy will result in either financial ruin or no health care.   Take someone like me.  I have existing conditions.   I have great medical needs.  I just found out I will require a hip replacement some time on my left leg.  I will also need the replacement already done on the right one redone as they wear out and are good for only a limited time.  I am already well beyond what I was promised.   I am not alone.  People here in Florida are mostly older people.  We need hips, knees, and other things replaced.   That doesn’t even start to deal with my spine.  Because hospitals and pharmaceutical companies get to over bill and charge prices no average person could pay out of pocket, we need insurance.  I will have to go on insulin, which can be expensive.  The insurance company already sent us a letter saying they won’t cover the only pill form medication I need to avoid shots.  The medications are over $800 dollars a month.  Our part was to be $300 dollars but we got a one time coupon to try it for three months making our part only $100 a month.  That was a one time deal.   It gave me hope, being poor took that hope away.   Greed on the part of every part of the medical care establishment is going to deny me coverage and treatment one way or the other.   IS this really what the Jesus followers wanted?  Is this really what the many poor Americans who voted for all the republicans  want?  To have a few some live great lives of comfort and luxury while the rest of us die in the streets, our homes if we can keep them, and fall dead at work because we just couldn’t afford to stop.    Hugs

  1. Republicans are pure evil. Pure, unadulterated evil.

    • I agree. Oh I hate how this election turned out. I just hope we can get enough of those on board that felt a need to sit out or do a protest vote to get democrat control of congress. Hugs
