Make America Sick Again

Great Blog post by John Hooker from Sag Harbor:

John knows a thing or two about health care as he used to work with the Swiss Pharma Industry.

 

I quote:

Repealing the ACA and that 3.8% tax would be one of the single most regressive changes in government policy in recent history, affecting not just equality of care, but economic equality as well. If the ACA were to be repealed, the top 0.1% of households would see an average tax cut of $197,000, while the average American would actually owe more in taxes, not to mention the fact that millions would lose access to thousands of dollars in subsidies for health insurance that would otherwise be unaffordable. Somebody must pay for subsidizing the health care exchanges to cover the uninsured – until the overall health of the nation improves…Let’s be honest, whose income has increased over the last decades?
