If the Republicans in Congress can't repeal the Affordable Care Act, Donald Trump will sabotage it by making it more hard for the public to shop on the insurance exchanges.

In an article in Health Affairs, the authors examined national survey data of USA adults ages 18-64, collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to determine the impact of the ACA on socioeconomic disparities in insurance coverage.

Medicaid is a state-run program partially financed by the federal government to help low-income residents get health services. He is effectively ignoring the successes of the ACA: lower uninsured rates, drastically decreasing medical bankruptcies, and the expansion of Medicaid in IN via HIP 2.0, all while downplaying the negative consequences of repeal.

The proposal would not end Medicaid expansion in states that have chosen to pursue the safety net program. "The ACA was associated with a substantial (but incomplete) narrowing of socioeconomic disparities in access, particularly in states that expanded Medicaid".

In the face of these partisan attacks on access to health care, HRC members have logged over 15,000 calls and emails to congressional offices on both sides of the aisle.

Health is measured in more than dollars and policies and test results.

As a cancer patient terrified by the dire health consequences the recent health care reform proposals may bring, I recently traveled from Las Vegas to Washington, D.C., along with 60 others participating in a "patient fly-in". We would likely end up where we started if the ACA is repealed.

"All we have to do today is to have the courage to begin the debate", he added as protesters yelled in the background: "Kill the bill, don't kill us". "Even without a full repeal, our political turmoil is injecting a great deal of uncertainty into the marketplaces, which could dissuade insurer participation and discourage enrollment".
