Congressional Budget Office: 22 Million People Will Lose Healthcare By 2026

The Washington Post reports on this.

A few quick thoughts:

  1. The defenders of the Senate bill to replace the Affordable Care Act believe that the free market is the answer to all of our problems.  They are free to believe this.  But they also have to sleep at night realizing that 22 million people will lose health insurance as a result of this bill. It is very difficult to pull a social safety net out from under people once they already have it.  Ideas have consequences.
  2. The defenders of the Senate bill to replace the Affordable Care Act will inevitably argue that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is wrong in its conclusions.  OK, let’s grant this point. Let’s just say that the CBO is off by 10 million people.  The GOP defenders of this new bill will have to go to sleep at night realizing that 12 million souls will lose healthcare by 2026.
  3. The defenders of the Senate bill to replace the Affordable Care Act will hurt some of the most vulnerable people in American society, including seniors and the poor. The GOP defenders of this new bill–many of them say that they value the life of vulnerable members of society–will have to sleep at night.

  1. The defenders of the Senate bill to replace the Affordable Care Act that will take affordable healthcare access from @ 22 million of the most vulnerable Americans also are vociferous in claiming that they are “pro-life.” Their actions show that this claim is a lie as they are certainly “pro-fetus” but their record after you are born is pretty atrocious. All to provide tax-cuts for the already wealthy. So how many will suffer from this bill? How many will die? Do they care one bit?

  2. What health care? Pharmaceuticals and vaccinations are not health care. Health care as it is known is toxify the blood, brain, kidneys and liver making a person think they are fine when the body is falling apart. Health care people tremble about Health care that does not do that. Upper cervical Spesific only does not do that. Health care as it is wants people to find bad chiropractic that treats people like a lump of clay making people think that all chiropractic is this way being wrong. Medical doctors want people to think that way. Medical people say we can help you like the beguiling winged serpent that is their symbol. people start dropping like flies from the drugs with Doctors saying they died of this or that hiding the fact that drugs did the people in. Not using Upper Cervical Spesific only, Upcspine, Upper Cervical Health Centers and The Spesific.com early in life will bring symptoms that did not have to occur.
