My Email Comment To Sen. Portman On Today's GOP Health Bill
Another email to Robbie. Contact him at
The BCRA Version 2 released today is still cruel and repugnant. It's still a huge tax cut for Big Pharma and Big Insurance. It still guts Medicaid, taxes older Americans, doesn’t cover essential health benefits like maternity care, will cause out-of-pocket costs to skyrocket, defunds Planned Parenthood, and contains a perverted concept of “choice” -- quarantining sick people into high risk pools while further stripping away coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
It adds more money for opioid treatment. Nice, but don't let yourself be bought for one small benefit in an ocean of detriment. Don't be a sell-out!
