Re: “So Are Your AZ Politicians Supporting Trumpcare?

Trumpcare keeps all the goodies (pre-existing coverage, etc.) with no way to pay for them. Then adds tax breaks for millionaires, and kicks 24 million people off insurance completely with no plan on how to pay for their care when they show up at the emergency room. It removes the subsidy for older people and throws them on the "mercies" of the market.
It does nothing to rein in costs. Nothing.
Expect healthcare costs to continue to rise.

Turk, ACA would work fine if we got everyone on the program. Right now, it was cheaper for the young to take the tax penalty instead of insurance. So, some insurers lost money and left the program.

Re: “So Are Your AZ Politicians Supporting Trumpcare?

The Federal government needs to get out of "gee, it would be nice" activities and stick to what is mandated in the constitution. ACA by any name will not work in the long run when its customer base is those with bad health. Single payer is the only way it will work, and that has not been made clear in selling this mess to the people.
