Count on TFR host, Elizabeth McCabe on “Quantum Connections” to get the real facts about Trump-Care! Over 20 MILLION Americans have no access to health care at all under ObamaCare, including both of us! So our Fearless Lucky did something no corporate media has done: She read the House Health Reform bill— and guys, there’s good stuff here.
Do you hate tax penalties for not buying insurance? They’re gone, replaced by a 30% surcharge for one year only in the event of an insurance lapse. So if you’re healthy until the day you get sick, like most of us, you’ll pay a one-time penalty and then you’re okay.
Do you worry about exorbitant RX drug prices? and the high cost of medical equipment? Thanks Obama for the 20% tax on prescription drugs! The GOP pulls both of those tax rates down to 10% where it was before ObamaCare. That change in itself will drive down health costs BIG-TIME!
Do you worry that older workers will pay more for insurance? The GOP gives tax credits of $2,000 to $14,000 that goes up with age and infirmities–NOT DOWN like the corporate media dishonestly suggests. Our best girl, Elizabeth read the bill! She knows what she’s reporting!
Do you worry maternity care is not covered?? Wrong. It is.
Do you worry about the 75 MILLION Americans on Medicaid? So do we! Here’s the deal–Medicaid will now have a work requirement except for pregnant women, the disabled (including chronic medical conditions, certified by a doctor) and the elderly! Oh yeah, and Medicaid will require a Social Security # making it harder f or immigrants to receive federal subsidies for U.S health care. There’s where California, New York and Maryland Democrats freak out, because they routinely pay out Medicaid to legal AND ILLEGAL immigrants. They demand State rights on Medicaid, then they pass the financial cost onto the Feds! They can still pay out Medicaid if they want, but not with federal tax dollars! Check out Lucky’s show, “Quantum Connections” on Tuesday and Thursday at 4pm EASTERN!
