#GrahamCassidy health care repeal would be devastating for millions of Americans & we cannot let it pass. Here are a few of the reasons why:
1) It ends Medicaid expansion, which experts have called the #1 tool at our disposal to combat the opioid crisis
2) It caps and cuts Medicaid for seniors and people who experience disabilities – putting community-based care programs at risk
3) These massive Medicaid cuts would also lead to funding cuts for school districts and students with disabilities
4) It cuts over $410 million dollars in federal funding for Medicaid to NH by 2026
5) #GrahamCassidy also undermines protections for people with pre-existing conditions
6) This bill would lead to higher out-of-pocket costs & take away premium assistance from millions of hard-working people
7) It would allow insurers to hike people’s premiums the moment they get sick, even if they've been paying while healthy for years
8) It guts the requirement that insurers must cover essential health benefits like substance use disorder, mental health & maternity care
9) Like prior versions of #Trumpcare, this #GrahamCassidy bill targets women's health and bars state reimbursements to Planned Parenthood
10)This bill has been introduced in the midst of bipartisan efforts to strengthen the individual insurance market, putting that work at risk
Bottom-line: The #GrahamCassidy bill is just as dangerous as prior attempts to repeal the ACA & we must stop it in its tracks
