1/ The House passed the devastating Tax Cuts & Jobs Act today. Starve the Beast? More like starve the poor and vulnerable. Thread. #winwithflynn #brianflynn #ny19 #taxbill
2/ As if that wasn't bad enough, Republicans are already planning to pay for their $1.5 trillion tax bill by making cuts next year to vital safety net programs the most vulnerable in our district rely on such as Social Security, Medicare, welfare and food stamps.
3/ So who in the GOP is going to step up and go to bat for America’s most vulnerable? Who will put country over party? If you’re betting on @repjohnfaso think again.
4/ @repjohnfaso has voted with the Trump-Ryan-McConnell far right agenda at a rate of nearly 90%, including repealing and replacing the ACA. His eventual “no” vote on the tax bill came only after @SpeakerRyan publicly declared he had enough support to pass it.
5/ That's not leadership. That's betrayal. And his constituents are the ones who will pay the price; with their health, with their paychecks, with their dignity. Arthur Miller once said, "remember, betrayal is the only truth that sticks." I can’t think of a more appropriate...
6/ ...way to sum up our first year with Faso. The beast may indeed soon starve. But so could many innocent, hard working families of NY-19. #winwithflynn #brianflynn #ny19 #taxbill

1/ @chrisjdmartin Hey Chris - ACA prohibited ins co's from discriminating against people with pre-existing conditions & required that everyone pays the same regardless of health. It also eliminated annual and lifetime limits on coverage.
2/ There were also consumer protections with the mandate that prevented individuals from waiting until they get sick to enroll, which kept the balance of healthy and sick individuals in the insurance risk pool - and premiums low. Without mandate, healthy enrollees can now drop...
3/ ...out of ACA-compliant plans. Remaining enrollees in risk pool would be sicker on average, forcing insurance co's to increase rates by about 10% to cover the increased average cost.
