The GOP is supporting an amendment to their already horrible American Health Care Act that they hope will hurt the sick enough to appease the Freedom Caucus. This MacArthur Amendment would allow states to apply for waivers that would price people with pre-existing conditions out of any chance of affording health insurance (called community rating, where they can charge sick people more - like 20K per month or 50K per month - for health insurance) and set up state risk pools to supposedly help with this. Risk pools, however, are the very same fake solution that the disabled and chronically ill faced before the ACA - one which led to ever increasing untreated illness and death.
Tell Congress No! There will be no MacArthur Amendment! No community
rating to allow the sick to be priced out of health insurance.
not go back. We will not go back. We will not go back!
Protect people with pre-existing conditions in reality, not just on paper!
