Letter to the Editor: Brooks proud of health care act

Three state House committees heard testimony Thursday from health care experts about how major changes to Medicaid outlined in the American Health Care Act would impact IL recipients. Furthermore, if carefully constructed, a public option like Medicare for All would also do wonders for US businesses by relieving them of the burden of providing health coverage for their employees - at a cost significantly lower than what they now pay. "Health care is a basic human right for everyone and health care saves lives".

¯ 24 million would lose coverage over 10 years. This bill has been criticized for providing tax cuts to the rich and because it would leave millions once more without insurance, detractors say.

That's for a couple reasons: Not only can companies can deduct up to $1 million in cash pay, they can also deduct unlimited amounts of "performance-based" pay, he wrote.

"During the campaign, President Trump promised he would never cut Medicaid, and with this report, he has officially broken that promise by cutting almost $1 trillion from this vital lifeline for seniors, children with disabilities, and pregnant women", Bustos said in a news release.

In short, this bill introduces unnecessary disarray, not only in the individual insurance market, but with Medicaid and Medicare. By cutting Medicaid to the tune of $880 billion and reducing health care premium subsidies by an additional $680 million. It is an editorially independent program of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation.

"Just this, they say, lowers premiums, stabilizes the market, gives people more choice and freedom". The Medicaid expansion, which has extended care to hundreds of thousands of people in OR alone, is eviscerated. Even if the number of Illinoisans eligible for Medicaid were to grow, the state would not be able to get more money.

Initially, health insurance premiums are projected to increase by 15 to 20 percent more than they would under "Obamacare" before decreasing in the next several years, Reed said. Instead of containing health insurance costs, Obamacare has sent them skyrocketing.

Among the benefits cited in the report is that the age rating change should lower the cost of insurance for young people, who also could be attracted by their ability to buy catastrophic coverage. There is no magic bullet for bringing down costs while expanding coverage.

Contact President Trump and your US Senators and Representative to tell them the irresponsible way the Republicans are approaching health care reform is doing irreparable harm to the current health care system by throwing it into a state of chaos and uncertainty, the costs for which the Republicans will be held accountable. Madam Congresswoman, I hope you will vote NO on Speaker Ryan's repeal and replacement bill. We can do better that this.
